hello there,
I am an old user in this forum and my inbox is flooded with jBPM messages from this community, but i have never used jPBM to show a proof of concept or even used it for a simple test case.

The good news is that now i am working over a Service Management Designer which will be using jBPM to serve the Business Processes.

One of the guys in our team has come up with a new language definition for the workflows after doing some research over jBPM and jPDL.

my question to you guys is the following:
Do we really need to create a new process definition language to suit some business requirements, can't jPDL encapsulate all the requirements needed for a workflow?
Due to the below workflow, we had to integrate a new tag called Step which i do see it as a transition state while they see it as a sub process sometimes and  this is why the guy suggested having a new process definition language in order to have sub process within a process and being able to fetch it by id same way as we fetch a main process in jPBM.
