What are the implications or cautions when changing a short lived process to long lived process and vice versa?

If you change a short lived to a long lived without versioning it, any running processes will stall if they call it.  It will complain about not being able to start the process synchronously.

The basic difference is that a short lived process does not store its process state in the LiveCycle DB the long lived processes do. So when you drop a user task on the process diagram it will change to a long lived automatically as the process data must be stored in the DB.

Make sense?
