    gateway that has no outgoing flows, an incomplete flow results
    and causes an NullPointerException in the simulation engine.

Local fix

  • You could fix the flow by any of the following ways:
    
    -Using an end event
    -Using an activity with the implementation set to None
    -Removing that gateway
    

Problem summary

  • No additional information is available.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix will be incorporated into a later release that allows the
    BPD to contain a gateway that has no outgoing flows during
    simulation, therefore preventing the NullPointerException.
    

Temporary fix
