Hi Radha,

Thanks for your post. You can find the details of data object (including example) in section 9.7.2 in the BPMN specification, which can be found at

We would not say that data object is equivalent to object/input parameter, it depends on your perspective.

If you need any further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask.

Best regards,
