[jboss-user] [jBPM Users] - Feture Request: Task subjects

Hi, all,

While trying to find an acceptable solution for presenting occuring tasks to my fellow users, I completely found one feature missing: Task subjects.

Currently the only way to tell my users what the task actually does is to render the form object for them. This is not really useful for presenting tasks in a list. And VacationRequest-1, VacationRequest-2 are no useful names either.

I currently need nothing more than a new attribute "subject" in the task tag, which simply contains an expression, where I can generate text like "Vacation Request of Guillaume Retard for April 2010", "Order confirmation for order A090023 of ACME Manufacturing (London)". Those who work with their task lists could easily identify tasks they delayed because they had to gather other information first, and come back then.

My other workaround would be to implement form evaluation each time a task node is reached, and the persisting the form in a parallel table.
