End event semantics

Hello.

Is it right that a process instance is active meanwhile there are pending user tasks or jobs?

Consider e.g. a process with two parallel paths and two end events. This means that the process is not concluded (and not deleted from act_ru_*) when the first end event is reached?

Does the following "process termination" definition apply: "End events consume tokens generated by the start event and any parallel constructs (paths, loops, gateways). The process instance has ended when there are no more tokens active."

Although the documentation states that the current path "ends":
http://activiti.org/userguide/index.html#bpmnEndEvent
it was not completely clear to me.

What does the BPMN standard tell about end events?


Thanks
Erny
