BPMN21 — Continue versus terminate in loop

  • Key: BPMN21-64
  • Legacy Issue Number: 14824
  • Status: open  
  • Source: VDMbee ( Henk de Man)
  • Summary:

    Introduction of end type break within a loop construct (continue construct is already there, implemented by the terminate end type which can be used inside a loop (multi instance activity) to end the loop).”

    This relates to what is e.g. said on page 407: “For a “terminate” End Event, the Sub-Process is abnormally terminated. In case of a multi-instance Activity, only the affected instance is terminated.”

    So, differentation is required between the two modes of getting out of the loop.
