Split-ForEach: one task to multiple subtasks
Split/join: One task to multiple subtask but they need to merge later to become single task
Spin-off: Parent and child tasks live independently.
Examples you can get from PDN

spin-off .. :- main flow calling subflow. at the same time main flow not waiting for subflow results.. they are running parallel..

split /Join: main flow calling mul flows. aftr execution all subflows. main flow will go forward..

split for Each: flow execution multiple times. like . one page contain. multiple values. then it will execute that much time.

@girishmamidi - So, In a scenario where my mainflow initiates a subflow for processing. Now, the mainflow can be in 'Resolved' state but 'Subflow' still continues to exist ? In a parent child relationship ?

This can be achieved using Spin-Off ? Is my understanding correct ?
