Issue - 78 - New value for initiate on multi-starts

Status: open
Date added: 22 Oct 2003
Submitter: Yaron Goland
Date submitted: 22 October 2003
Description: The use of the initiate attribute on correlations in multi-start activities can easily lead to misunderstanding. The 'initiate='yes'' value is only true on the first multi-start activity that fires, the rest are magically transformed into 'initiate='no'' once the first multi-start fires. One can easily imagine the resulting confusion. To prevent this confusion perhaps we should add a new value for initiate such as 'initiate='multistart''. This shows that the programmer understands the special semantics of correlation sets on multi-start activities.
