BPMN11 — BPMN Issue: Exclusive Gateway Merging

  • Key: BPMN11-91
  • Legacy Issue Number: 9615
  • Status: open  
  • Source: BPM Advantage Consulting ( Stephen White)
  • Summary:

    The BPMN 1.0 version of the Exclusive Gateway merging (either data or event Gateways) acts as a "pass through" for any Tokens that arrive. This means that there is no "exclusiveness" to the merging as the name of the Gateway would imply. A "discriminator" merging that allows the first Token through and stops any further (parallel) Tokens is a business pattern that cannot be currently modeled. This functionality should either replace the current merging behavior or be added to the behavior.
