Error description

  • When you model a service (A) with multiple end events, and this
    service is used as a nested service step in another service (B),
    in service B you must model a sequence flow for each end event
    of service A that leaves the nested service step. If one or more
    end events are not wired and the corresponding end events are
    navigated at run time, you see the following message and the
    service fails:
    
    "Error: Next service item is not defined
    
    In IBM Process Designer, no error is shown that warns you that
    the service (B) is incomplete.
    
    The same problem occurs if you model a heritage coach step but
    do not wire all end states of the coach in the surrounding
    service.
    
    CoachNG does not have this problem because CoachNG disables
    buttons that are not wired in the surrounding service.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • IBM BPM has a validation framework that validates artifacts when
    they are saved. In this framework, a method that checks for
    incomplete wiring is missing.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available that adds a method to the validation
    framework that issues a validation error if an outgoing
    sequence flow is missing from a heritage coach step or
    a nested service step.
