Issue - R27 - Faults and Parallelism in Termination Handlers
Date added: 30 Oct 2006
Date submitted: 27 October 2006
Description: Consider the following examples of
Example 1. Assume that a custom termination handler contains a
forEach activity or a flow activity. In either case, assume that
multiple concurrent branches are active. If one branch faults, the
specification does not tell whether the other branches are allowed to
complete or terminated.
Example 2. Assume that a default termination handler that
compensation handler instance group. If one compensation handler
instance faults, the specification does not tell whether the other
compensation handler instances are allowed to complete or terminated.
Submitter's proposal: Add the following to the end of
"If a custom termination handler contains parallel
activities and one of
these activities propagates a fault then all concurrent activities in
the termination handler MUST be terminated. Likewise, if a default
termination handler compensates a compensation handler instance group
and one of the compensation handler instances propagates a fault then
the other compensation handler instances of the compensation handler
instance group MUST be terminated."
