How to share a map created in a advisor with a participant. Basically I have retrieved the old state of Iteration being save in an  advisor and put it in a map. I want to share this map with the participant.How can I do that as in case of workitem I can use additional save parameters but In case of IProcessItem I don't have that.

From my perspective, you should never create such dependencies. All advisors and participants should compute the data they need themselves. If you make assumptions about communication between them, you are likely to get into trouble.

Hi Ralph,
Thanks for answering the question. Actually I was doing this because I am not able to retrieve the old state of a Iteration in participant. I tried using predecessor and mergepredecessor state but had no luck. So in the advisor I can retrieve the old state of iteration using the UUID and retrieving from the repository and have new state and old state of the iteration.But I cannot retrieve from the repository in participant as the iteration is already saved .So repository also will have recent update. So I thought of saving the old iteration and new iteration details in a map in advsior and share it with participant.
I have created another post for the question related to retrieving the old state of iteration.

Thanks & Regards,
