Problem summary

  • IllegalArgumentException could occur when you try to save a BPD.
    This issue occurs when you model BPDs and subprocesses in
    Process Designer and frequently switch snapshots. If a BPD
    contains missing or broken subprocess references, switching
    snapshots and double clicking to open a subprocess might cause a
    subprocess of an incorrect version to be opened in the editor.
    If you try to edit and save the BPD to Process Center, the
    following IllegalArgumentException might occur:
