    define a timer within an automatic activity?

    jeffery c Newbie

      hi, everybody

      i want to define an activity with a time-cycle timer, which is supposed to fire if the activity takes too long for running.

      i found and the timer would not be deployed until the transaction is commited,
      so that the timer and the activity would be in the same transaction, if the activity failed, then the timer would not be deployed, too.
      and the transaction would not commit until the Execution return,
      is that means that an activity could only have a timer when it is a long-running activity which will set execution.propagation=wait?


      can i define an activity with timer which is an automatic-type activity like gen pdf files?

      BTW, i can not acess to the svn for long(http://anonsvn.jboss.org/repos/jbpm), is the location changed or?
