Ok, got it.  BPMN2 defines 3 types of timer expressions: timeDuration (trigger after a certain amount of time), timeCycle (trigger repeatedly) and timeDate (trigger on a specific date and time).  It seems you're looking for the last one.  Unfortunately, only the first two options are currently supported in jBPM5.

I'll look at adding support for this:  https://issues.jboss.org/browse/JBPM-3298 https://issues.jboss.org/browse/JBPM-3298

As a workaround for now, I think it should be possible to use timeDuration as described earlier, but then add some action script before that that would translate the generated date and time variable back into a duration variable.
