Attaching sample bpmn.
- I removed
targetNamespace="http://www.jboss.org/drools" for Designer to be able to accept.
- I removed 'Result Mappings' which causes another error.
Kris comment at Bug 999425:
sourceRef of a data association should be a valid IDREF, so strictly speaking, it can't be something like <sourceRef>myMap.var1</sourceRef>. A transformation element (which is an expression inside the data association) should be used to store the expression.
So when using BPMN2 (both Designer and Eclipse), currently the user cannot set expressions as source for data associations. As alternative, scripts should be used to set a variable with the right value and then use a simple data association to map that variable to the data input.
We will have to consider adding support for transformation expressions in the future.
