BusinessKey in sub processes

Hi all,

this question came up a few times, but there seems to be no clear solution. When you start a process with a business key, that business key will not be passed on to sub-processes that are called via CallActivity. There's also http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/ACT-853 for that issue, but it's 1 year old. In Activiti 5.10 it seems to be unchanged.

The only workaround I see at the moment is to use a process variable in addition to / as a replacement for the business key. But then I wonder why there's a dedicated business key feature in the API.

Are there any other solutions to pass on the business key?

Thanks :-)
Peter
