Hi,

I just updated from Activiti 5.7 to 5.9 and after I run my JUnit tests I got the following error:

org.activiti.engine.ActivitiException: Invalid reference in 'bpmnElement' attribute, process adhoc_One_Script_Task_Workflow not found | One_Script_Task_Workflow.bpmn20.xml | line 1 | column 1120

   …


The error occurs when deploying a kickstart process. In another thread with the same exception (http://forums.activiti.org/en/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3578) I read that processes that are not executable (isExecutable=false) will now be ignored. Could that be the problem? The process was generated as follow:


KickstartWorkflowDto dto = new KickstartWorkflowDto();

dto.setName("One Script Task Workflow");
dto.setDescription("Simple workflow definition containing one script task");

ScriptTaskDto scriptDto = new ScriptTaskDto();
scriptDto.setId("theScriptTask");
scriptDto.setName("Execute script");

scriptDto.setScriptFormat("juel");
scriptDto.setResultVariableName("myVar");
scriptDto.setScript("${ping.increment()}");
dto.addTask(scriptDto);

KickstartService service = new KickstartServiceImpl(processEngine);
String deployId = service.deployKickstartWorkflow(dto);

I can't find a way to set the process as executable.. any suggestions?

Ben
