Hallo There,

I newly set up Activiti and designed a process definition. While its running, it hangs without any error on the web interface but I found the following exception trace in catalina log file.
I hope somebody can help.

I suspect it has something to do when an activity is trying to call something in the java classes. Although the jar is added.
It is kind of a complex process definition, so can somebody have/get an idea what the previous exception could ever mean?

thanks in advance
