Error description

  • When you invoke a BPEL process from within another BPEL process
    or by using an Advanced Integration service (AIS) and the
    invoked process has the "Automatically delete the process after
    completion" property set to "Yes" and encounters a runtime
    exception that isn't handled within the process, you observe
    that although the process instance is correctly deleted it
    sometimes doesn?t return a reply message to the caller with the
    error information.
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED
    IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced
    

Local fix

  • Set the "Automatically delete the process after completion"
    property to "No" or "On successful completion".
    

Problem summary

  • In this scenario, two internal messages are created: one for
    sending the reply message and one for deleting the process
    instance. The messages are processed in two separate threads,
    and it is important which of the two threads completes first. If
     the thread that deletes the process instance is faster, the
    reply message is discarded because the instance it refers to to
    no longer exists; accordingly, no reply is sent to the caller.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is currently targeted for inclusion in IBM BPM 8.5.7
    cumulative fix 2017.06 that changes the processing of the
    deletion and the reply message so that the reply message is
    always processed first.
