Hello

I've just started with Activiti - I notice in the Manning book, all the java code everywhere starts with the instantiation of a processEngine object like      ProcessEngine processEngine = ProcessEngineConfiguration.createStandaloneProcessEngineConfiguration().buildProcessEngine();

But the API says  "Building a ProcessEngine is done through a ProcessEngineConfiguration instance and is a costly operation which should be avoided."

So is normally there a jvm running somewhere with that object instantiated all the time, that processes can attach to and use ?     An Activiti "server" so to speak ?     It doesn't seem like from the Manning book…..but maybe that comes later ….. ?
