The jobs will be running for different periods of time but anywhere between 2 and 8 seconds. But there could be problems with comms etc and it could take longer or we could retry etc so the job would take longer in them circumstances. And yes... unfortunately we are sure! lol.

But yes that pattern looks spot on. Is there an "Aggregator" of sorts in JBPM? Or would that be the Join node in a way.

Yes multiple return variables (each fork changing its "own" object) which is then read back at the front-end once its been updated.
