I'm trying to import task input data from an external DB. The procedure is well explained in the Tutorial and User Manual. But when i have to specify the XQuery for the data binding, the editor found a syintax prolbem and do not allow to save the specification (see attached image).
I've tried to modify the YAWL file directly from a text editor , modifing the argument of tag expresion (under startingMAppings) with the same Xquery and the binding was successful at run time.
I found same problem using yawl editor 3 4.0 and 4.1 on Windows 10.
I hope this report can help to improve your system. Best regards.

Hi Michael,
I'm having some truble when I try to connect a MS DB. How can i write message in the log to understand where the problems arise?
Thank you for your help.

The problem was :
- the connection URL, my DB has no istances so was enoguth jdbc:sqlserver://localhost inestead of (jdbc:sqlserver://localhost\SQLEXPRESS).
- Add the sqljdbc4.jar in the tomact lib folcer

To write log message i have create a logger with LogManager.getRootLogger(). I'm sorry for the question but was the first time i used the log4j lib.
