BPMN11 — Multiple None Start Events inside of a sub-process

  • Key: BPMN11-57
  • Legacy Issue Number: 10138
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: International Business Machines ( Ms. Suzette Samoojh)
  • Summary:

    What would be the semantics of having multiple None Start Events inside of
    a sub-process? Should this be allowed.

    If the start events are on the sub-process border, then the semantics are
    clear. A sequence flow would target the start event and thus determine
    which start event would be triggered.
    But what happens when the start event is inside the sub-process? Will
    multiple instances of the sub-process be created? This doesn't work given
    that the sub-process instance is created when a token arrives via a
    sequence flow. If one instance is created then we have a conflict with
    the current spec semantics, in which each start event results in a new
    instance. And would tokens flow out of one start event or both?
