As described in the following chapter in the Activiti user guide (http://activiti.org/userguide/#N1200A) it is possible to use JPA in combination with Activiti. This should then in turn use JPA to retrieve stored process variables. This is exactly what we need. But the problem is is that the project I'm working on at this moment uses multiple entity manager factories during the process. I can't find a way to do this with Activiti. Am I missing something or is it not possible?
