???  You go to sleep? like in a thread? Wrong usage.

Neither, it is how you *should* do things.

Correct.. but in normal cases you do not keep it open and a process goes in a waitstate. You only open it again if e.g. an external system or person acts on something. 

anonymous wrote : but that strategy falls apart when there are other threads of execution (ala JobExecutor, custom web service, etc.) that is needing to update the database.
In most cases there only is one real thread of execution. Sure, you can have parallel things in forks, but they seldom act on the same thing at the same time. There are some things being looked into regarding locks/transactions and a join (see the jira)

anonymous wrote : In fact, the main thread only issues one commit when the process definition is inserted into the database at startup. 

Show us your unittest... might be 'wrong' usage in there
