Need your help
We use Camunda version 7.11, WildFly 16, shared engine
The task is to implement versioning of process definitions
The target is to have different versions of the same process (different .war archives) deployed on server application at the same time (like process_v1.war, process_v2.war).
Old process instances must be finished over old schema, models and java delegates.
New process instances must be created by new version of process definition (latest .war)
In order to create the instance of the latest process definition version we use version tag
RepositoryService repositoryService = processEngine.getRepositoryService(); String definitionId = repositoryService.createProcessDefinitionQuery() .processDefinitionKey(PROCESS_DEFINITION_KEY) .versionTag("v2") .latestVersion() .singleResult() .getId();
and than next we start the process instance
ProcessInstance processInstance = runtimeService.startProcessInstanceById( definitionId );
If the latest version (v2) of the process was deployed last on the application server, there are no problems, everything works as it should
But if we reload WildFly and the latest version of the process was not deployed last (last was deployed v1) we have some issues of class casting
The reason is that even when we try to create the instance of the v2 version of the process by process definition identifier, the control passes to the last deployed .war and then we get class cast errors
Will be very grateful for the help and tips in solving this issue
