Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is a defect in Pegasystems’ code/rules. Enhancement to the product.


This issue is resolved through the following local change: 

The solution is to fix the PublicToInternalFlow.XSL to add an otherwise for the SubFlowProcess.Also to generate the Connectors for <FLOW> tag by modifying the BPELToMultiExternal.xsl to generate connectors in the Generic way if there are no <links> tags.Also modified the processInternalFlowXML function to calculate the coordinates for the shapes generated.
