Ok so I accept 'transformation' as one step of the design process.

So how to transform such situation:
1)shop creates order - order is in state 'created'
2)supplier can create or reject order. When accepts order go's to 'accepted' state, but have to provide some additional data. When rejects order go's to 'rejected' state.

And there is one more requirement, all tasks that have to be performed by end users should be displayed in one generic way, this mean that if i add new action to 'created' state and deploy new process definition UI should display one button more. But end users have different permissions, some can only reject some can do both. One thing that is not generic is set of action which are implemented in Java.

At first glance i wanted to do this with task nodes but this causes some problems which i can't solve.

Now i want to do this with wait states. Where 'created', 'accepted', 'rejected' are wait states and 'accept', 'reject' are transition between them. But this aproach have few disadventages:

1)I can't use swimlanes. If in the future order after supplier acceptance should be accepted also by shop user WHO CREATED ORDER how to achive this ?

2)Actions now represents user tasks which should be represented by tasks.

3)Can i have one general action ex. 'modify order' and use it in different places in process and configure it to let users modify only quantities and somewere else let user modify only prices ? Or i have to do two distinct actions ?

Do u see any more ?

If u have any idea please help.
