Hi all,

I am trying to attach each user task we a timer boundary event that will executed another process. I would like to do this on deployment time and it should be transparent to the user. I was looking into some ways to do this but I did not yet find a clean solution.

The solution that I am looking at now is:

1) In a custom pre deployer get the bpmn resources and back them up (to always have the original version). Modify it and add the boundary timer events in the xml.

2) Let the standard bpmndeployer do its work

3) In a custom post deployer put the original resources back and delete the modified versions.

I will also have to make sure that the generated diagram is the one from the original xml version. It is not very clean to do it this way, but I don't see another solution at this moment. Can you guys come up with another way of doing this ?
