I have started using the activiti BPM. Its interesting.
I am able to use activiti user task and i am able to pass input with java program.
Type of input is object (some pojo).
I want to pass the same object using user task but in the designer.
1) How to pass java objects as the input to the user task?
2) Can we map xsd files directly as the input, similar as the pojo, as described earlier?

I do not want to use Service Task for the above mentioned requirements,
as this is the additional thing provided and not described in the BPMN 2.0.

There is another problem which i would like to describe here:
My process would like this:
start -> task1 -> task2 -> task3 -> end
after the process gets started and i have the java object, i would like to set values into that object before completing the task1, task2, task3... etc.
