For jBPM 3? Yes, since you can only be the one that knows for sure what changed and what not etc...

But...Bernd Rücker from Camunda has written a nice article on versioning in a broader scope. See 


In which he states:

If you want to migrate them to the new version this can be done by writing some "migration script", which can be implemented by a jBPM Command (see Command ApiDoc), a good starting point is the ChangeProcessInstanceVersionCommand. This can be (more or less) easily extended to maybe take Groovy scripts for process migration or anything else that make sense in your environment.

Hope this helps (little at least)
