*FDML ONLY* ifix for APAR IZ47975

Downloadable files


Orphaned process instances which may lead to incorrect items on users work lists

Download Description

An FDML subprocess with a parent-grandchild relationship with the top-level process is not terminated when the top-level process is terminated.

If a subprocess has a parent-child relationship with the calling process, life cycle operations on the parent process instance, like terminate and delete, are applied to the subprocess instance as well. However, if this subprocess again has a parent-child relationship to another process, the termination request is not propagated to this grandchild process if the "autoDelete" option is specified on the top-level process. Furthermore, trying to terminate the grandchild process itself results in a EngineProcessWrongKindException.

This ifix prevents the problem described above.
