I am using the “Send event service task” and the “receive task” to send and receive message through kafka Topic. See screenshot.
I was wondering if this is necessary/useful to have a connection (arrow) between those 2 tasks since the receiveTask has both channel key and event key defined and “knows” from who to get the message.
The connection exists between the 3 boxes but when I save the flow and look at the view mode (before I export it), the connection disappear. See second screenshot.
The result is that the generated xml is not valid since there is one waypoint instead of a minimum of 2.
So I have to add a fictive waypoint in order to make the XML valid.
By the way, I am using Flowable 6.6.0
Thanks for your help!
