BPMN21 — Unclear execution semantics of MI activities with complex behavior

  • Key: BPMN21-391
  • Legacy Issue Number: 19831
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Munkert Software ( Frank Munkert)
  • Summary:

    "Table 10.31 - ComplexBehaviorDefinition attributes and model associations" contains the following text: "This attribute defines a boolean Expression that when evaluated to true,
    cancels the remaining Activity instances and produces a token."

    In chapter "13.3.7 Multiple Instances Activity", where the execution semantics are described, however, there is no mentioning that multi-instance activities with complex behavior cancel instances as soon the ComplexBehaviorDefinition's condition becomes true.

    Probably the text fragment "cancels the remaining Activity instances and" in the table is wrong and should be removed. Otherwise, the execution semantics chapter should be extended accordingly.
