BPMN11 — Events in subprocesses

  • Key: BPMN11-53
  • Legacy Issue Number: 9936
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: NIST ( Conrad Bock)
  • Summary:

    The spec is unclear on when the events are enabled, ie, "listening" for
    the event.

    For example, suppose an independent process has a start event (either
    message, timer, or rule), and this process is used by another (as a
    subprocess, for example), as shown below.

    P1:

    A ---> P2 ----> B

    P2:

    Start
    Event ---> Other activities
    (Message,
    Timer,
    or Rule)

    What will happen if A is executing in P1, and the start event for P2
    occurs before A is finished?

    If P2 is intended to be called only by other processes (it isn't "top
    level"). Is there a way to prevent if from being triggered
    independently of its callers?
