    My two cents. All that people might need is a nice wrapper over a DOM API which makes Jpdl xml writing using Java code simpler. This may not really require to touch any of the core classes for this. For e.g. I can write something like:

  | //this is the step where we generate the xml dynamically
  | JpdlWriter writer = new JpdlWriter();
  | String xmlString = writer.startNode("Start Node Name")
  | 			      .transition("Transition Name", "Next Task")
  | 			      .task("Next Task")
  | 			      ... etc.
  | 			      .xml();
  | //this is deployment, which is the same even for a static xml, read from a file 			   
  | String deploymentId = repositoryService.createDeployment()
  | 		        	       .addResourceFromString(resourceName, xmlString)
  | 		        	       .deploy();
I would assume the JpdlWriter class and any other associated classes will not do anything with the real process definition object. However code above is just a random thought to elaborate the idea.

I believe something like this Sebastian suggested and you also mentioned.
