    jBPM 4 CR1 AsyncActivity Unit Test fails due to FK constrain

    Joshua Siaw Newbie

      Hi, I just installed jBPM4 CR1 yesterday and have been trying out the examples and testing the api. I tried to run testAsyncActivity on JUnit and it failed with this error. Btw, I'm using MySQL 5 for the JBPM db.

      Basically the test is failing to delete the process instance after the jobs are done and the process reaches the end state. Does anyone have a solution for this problem? Did I setup my db connection incorrectly?

      Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

          If you would search the forum, you'd see that (unfortunately?) many people suffer identical issues and a jira issue is already posted which could be (is?) related to this. Can you check if it seam related...

            Thanks for your quick reply. I did search the forums and jira (sorry I didn't mention that) but wasn't sure if it was due to the same problem so I thought I'd post this specify the unit test which failed.

            As far as I can tell since trying other tests(EndProcessInstanceTest, EndStateTest, etc), anything related to deleting a process instance hits this FK constraint error. I don't think its seam related since I'm not using it (and I don't really how to use it). I'm just running tests and using java classes to call the api.

            Anything else I can do to help identify the problem? Deleting process definitions and instances work fine in the GWT console so I'm puzzled as to why this doesn't work. I'd assume they use the same api.

              hahaha I meant to say if it seams related..... slip of the pen.
              Could you post your db config files (hibernate, -ds.xml etc..)

                Here you go:

                 <import resource="jbpm.mail.templates.examples.xml" />

                jbpm.hibernate.cfg.xml file:

                 <mapping resource="jbpm.identity.hbm.xml" />

                logging.properties file:
                handlers= java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler
                redirect.commons.logging = enabled
                java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler.level = FINE
                java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler.formatter = org.jbpm.internal.log.LogFormatter

                # org.hibernate.tool.hbm2ddl.SchemaExport.level=FINEST
                # org.hibernate.transaction.level=FINEST

                I don't have a -ds.xml file though. Is that needed? I ran the build.xml using ant with the datasource settings modified in the build file. This is what I modified:

                <!-- DEFAULT PROPERTY VALUES -->
                 <property name="database" value="mysql" />
                 <property name="jbpm.parent.dir" value="../.." />
                 <property name="jbpm.version" value="4.0.CR1" />
                 <property name="jboss.version" value="5.0.0.GA" />
                 <property name="jbpm.home" value="${jbpm.parent.dir}/jbpm-${jbpm.version}" />

                  I've tested it and the way jBPM is providing all mysql setup data it works like a charm.

                  I noticed one difference though. I use the org.hibernate.dialect.MySQLInnoDBDialect instead of what you use. Since I'm no DB expert I do not know the difference not do I intent to find out, but you might give it a try.

                    Yep, confirmed. If I change my dialect to yours, I get the same error.

                      That did it! Thanks so much! Now it makes sense. If I remember correctly InnoDb storage type allows you to carry out executions in 'safe' transactions and enforces foreign key constraints, etc to maintain db integrity.

                      Quite possibly the other dialect I was using did not enforce such rules so it was rejected. My db is definitely using InnoDb storage. This is probably true for most people using MySQL since it's the default type when installing MySQL server.

                      Anyways, that was just additional info. Thanks again!
