Spring boot: starting a camunda process

For a project we had to develop a spring boot webservice including the camunda rest engine to controll the process. When including and starting the camunda process by the autowired capablity we had the problem the just a empty process was launched, not using our deployed process definition. Solution: To tackle this problem we used spring boots EventLister annoation to know when the application had fully deployed the process and then starting it. @EventListener public void processPostDeploy(PostDeployEvent event) { instance = runtimeService.startProcessInstanceByKey("Process"); //.. }
