Hello Everybody!

I am Andrey Lumyanski, J2EE Developer and Architect from Belarus.
Now I work on internal BPM framework for mycompany and we decided to use Activiti as embedded process engine.
Moreover, my employer allows me to make contributions to Activiti.

I have made my first contribution (commited to branch ACT-620):
Add process variable declarations
http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/ACT-620
http://forums.activiti.org/en/viewtopic.php?t=1072&p=4345#p4345

I have just added support of <itemDefinition>, <dataObject>, <ioSpecification> and some test processes to check if the declaration is supported.
You should to know that Activiti supports runtime variables, I have just added to support in design time. Of cause, it is not final solution – no variable type validations, etc.

I would like to ask for Activiti Eclipse Process Designer developers: could you either add variable declaration support from designer side or allow me to contribute?
