    EJB-JBPM: transaction clash (rollbacks)

    Johan Parent Newbie

      Hi all,

      I'm in desperate need for some pointers. I try to introduce jbpm (3.1.4) into an existing EJB2.X app. The jbpm code is wrapped in the thoroughly tested session bean, works. When the 2 are put together things collide. Monitoring of the db queries indicates that the business logic and jbpm are doing there work. BUT all the work is finally undone by a rollback on the db connection.

      Unfortunately I can't cut&paste the logged data here. But in a nutshell: the app does a few selects then call the jbpm code to start a process. Nothing more. Any, really ANY, pointer would be welcome.

      Best regards,

      Johan

      The setting:
      - weblogic 8.1
      - sybase
      - jbpm 3.1.4
      - both apps use the same datasource
      - DbPersistenceServiceFactory:

      <field name="isTransactionEnabled"><false /></field>
      

      - hibernate settings:
       <property name="dialect">org.hibernate.dialect.SybaseDialect</property>
       <property name="hibernate.cache.provider_class">org.hibernate.cache.HashtableCacheProvider</property>
       <property name="hibernate.connection.datasource">tx_sybase</property>
       <property name="hibernate.transaction.factory_class">org.hibernate.transaction.CMTTransactionFactory</property>
       <property name="hibernate.transaction.manager_lookup_class">org.hibernate.transaction.WeblogicTransactionManagerLookup</property>

          Jsut out of curiosity... why can't you cut and paste the logging here?

          The other info (to me) is not enough, I'm no persistency expert... sorry

            What's the question? Is it
            "Where is the rollback?"

            If so, all I can offer is the usual advice - log everything.
            If that doesn't lead anywhere, you could start inserting getRollbackOnly() calls to narrow it down.

            If you're wondering how to keep an application rollback from rolling back JBPM's persistence - me too! My current theory is to wrap all application work under a command-pattern SLSB that's set to REQUIRES_NEW. If you come up with anything better, please write it up!

              Does not sound to strange... Most people want it in one transaction. Let's ask one of the core developers... I'll notify them.

                Thanks for the reaction guys!

                The queries contain some sensitive/personal data and I just don't want my head chopped off by my boss :-P

                Well I can post an edited (and somewhat shorter version of the output). It contains JBPM log info but also the queries, I don't think it is confusing. The "select" at the very beginning is the last query produced by the app. After that it's jbpm code. I removed the inserts for the variable instances but all is fine there. I did not leave any commit notifications out.

                The way I interpret the output: after the final save() of the process instance the connection is rolled back. I got no clue why this happens, I don't understand nearly enough about dbs to be sure about this "conclusion". What I'm sure about it that there is not trace left in the db afterwards.

                  I don't know anything about the Sybase driver.

                  But I think it's very possible that setRollbackOnly() was set much earlier, and the log message is only reflecting it much later at commit time.

                  The "4,033ms executing PreparedStatement: SELECT..." log at the end looks strange in the context of closing the JbpmContext. Is there more than one thread running? If so, you should modify the log format to show the thread.

                    There is only one thread, that's just the next loop in the test. The setRollBackOnly() idea is worth checking out, I'll do that. Thanks

                      Ok, I found it. A stupid mistake for a change. I should have seen the

                      ionh0_.ID_ as ID1_1_, exceptionh0_.GRAPHELEMENTINDEX_ as GRAPHELE6_1_, exceptionh0_.ID_ as ID1_7_0_,

                      GRAPHELEMENT_ as GRAPHELE4_7_0_ from JBPM_EXCEPTIONHANDLER



                      I missed an exception in one of the handlers. Bit a pitty it is so easily overlooked if you don't define an exception handler in your process.

                      Anyway, again thanks for the input guys!

                        The log message certainly doesn't jump out and bite you!

                            The output I pasted in this thread is that with DEBUG set for log4j.logger.org.jbpm . So it is definitely insufficiently reported.

                            Do you perhaps want to JIRA it?


                            I will do that. I think some logging when no exception handlers were specified should not be too hard.
