    error starting bean creates redirect loop

    willie slepecki Newbie

      in my conversation i have a component bean that runs the whole conversation. when the bean initiates, it has to run a transaction to another system in the constructor.  i have the exception handling system configured to route to an error page on a connectino exception to my other system.  when an exception occurs in that constructor, it tries to route to the error page but it causes a redirect loop for some reason.  i researched it and it seems to be some kind of problem in JBPM 3 itself.  its supposed to be fixed in JBPM 4.1, but i was wondering if there was a current work around
