Re: [bpmn2-modeler-dev] ways to link bpmn files ?

Hey Cristiano,

It looks like you're using the jBPM Target Runtime extension, correct? That would be the reason why you can only import Java types - jBPM doesn't support anything else, sorry :(


Hi Bob,

many thanks for pointing the right way... it seems to be awesome !
but I couldn't find the dialog that you have used for external files.
When I click on the Imports list of the "Definitions" property tab of the canvas Property sheet, I get only java type based Imports..

take a look on the screen shot, please...

Hi Cristiano,

The double click gesture is used to display an element's property sheet. To open the contained process, use the "Show Diagram" context menu action, like so:

FYI, you can also reference an external process (a different bpmn file) from the Call Activity like this:
From the "Definitions" property tab of the canvas Property sheet, click "+" on the "Import List" table and select the process file from the "Import Dialog" as shown here:

The imported process will then show up in the Called Activity combo box:

Now when you click the "Show Diagram" context menu button, it will open a new editor for the referenced process file.


I could note that there is a way you can move an entire sub-process into a new diagram inside the same model file.
I could note that BPMN2 changed the way reusable sub-processes is constructed. Now there is a CallActivity that should be used to reuse a sub-process.

is there a way to open the inner subprocess diagram double clicking the CallActivity ?
