How can I end a suspended task? In IWorkflowSession there is a mehtod:

public abstract void endWorkingTask(ITask paramITask, String paramString1, String paramString2, String paramString3, boolean paramBoolean)
    throws PersistencyException;

But its undocumented.

Or is it better to call ITask.destroy()?

The method endWorkingTask(...) of IWorkflowSession is not public API and should not be used. It is reserved for ivy internal only.

The method destroy() of ITask can be used. It will destroy the task which means:

  • The task is canceled/aborted
  • No user can work on the task later.
  • If this is the last running task of a case then the case is also destroyed.
  • If other tasks are tried to join on a task element with the task you have destroyed then the tasks will never be joined. This means the case will never end.

If you want to cancel the whole process instance (case) then you should use the method destroy of ICase.
