    Simple process with WorkItemHandler doesn't end

    Newbie

      Using jBPM 5.4 with persistence (Hibernate 4, and JPA2) I have a 4 node process: 

       

          start->MyWorkItemHandler->Script (System.out.println("done") ->(terminating) end.

       

      The only thing my workItemhandler does is complete the workitem.   workItemManager.completeWorkItem(workItem.getId(),null);

       

      The process starts, and the workitem handler completes.  I get the "done" printed on the screen.  I see in the NodeInstanceLog that my terminating end node is reached and completed (type=1).  I also set up a ProcessEventlistener and see that the afterProcessCompleted() gets called with the processID I'm expecting.

       

      HOWEVER, my process is never marked as completed in the ProcessInstanceLog (Status = 0);

       

      Has anyone seen this?  Does anyone have any thoughts as to what is going on?  A bug?

       

      Thanks,

          you mean that process is not reported as completed in history logs but it is in fact completed, right? If so, it could be a bug that is db specific. What db do you run with, is it oracle? Recently there was a fix for this but it was on master (6.0).

            Thank you for the information.  Yes that is what I mean; and suspiciously, yes, I am running with Oracle (11g).  As you mentioned, it looks like the issue https://issues.jboss.org/browse/JBPM-3719.  As a work-around until 6 is released, does it seem reasonable to just add an update statement into my ProcessEventListener?  Something like:

             

               EntityManagerFactory emf = Persistence.createEntityManagerFactory("org.jbpm.persistence.jpa");

               EntityManager em = emf.createEntityManager();

               em.getTransaction().begin();

               ProcessInstanceLog pil = em.find(ProcessInstanceLog.class,event.getProcessInstance().getId());

               pil.setEnd(new Date());

               pil.setStatus(2);

               em.getTransaction().commit();

               em.close();

             

            Thanks again,
