Error description

  • If you selected '?Automatically flow to next task?  while
    modelling an activity in a business process definition (BPD) and
    the next activity is a subprocess or linked process activity,
    you receive a java.lang.RuntimeException when IBM Business
    Process Manager (BPM) performs the navigation steps. The
    SystemOut.log file contains an entry that is similar to the
    following entry:
    [4/14/15 3:24:16:191 CDT] 000013f4 RoutingAPIHel W   Unexpected
    bpmnTaskType '6'

Local fix

Problem summary

  • During the navigation steps, IBM BPM queries whether the BPD
    instance contains a task for the current user. During this
    query, a method is called that throws a
    java.lang.RuntimeException if the corresponding activity is not
    a user task or a system task.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.6.0 that catches and
    ignores the java.lang.RuntimeException. On V8.5.5.0 the fix for
    this issue is contained in JR53492.
