Preserving the Context of Interrupted Business Process Activities
The capability to safely interrupt business process activities is an important requirement for advanced Process-Aware Information Systems. Indeed, exceptions stemming from the application environment often appear while one or more application-related process activities are running. Safely interrupting an activity consists of preserving its context, i.e., saving the data associated with this activity. This is important since possible solutions for an exceptional situation are often based on the current data context of the interrupted activity.
