HI All

I am trying to create a simple workflow using JPA. I have one service task which persists the data into a custom table using JPA and returns a JPA entity. Then i have a User Task where i want to display an attribute from the returned JPA entity. Now whether i blank user task or a user task with the entity attirbute, i get the error below when i click on the user task from the activit-explorer. I can see the correct data in ACT_RU_VARIABLE table as well and the type_ column indicates jpa-entity . What am i missing here ? How can i fix this prioblem…Please Advice…
