Force dehydration in Oracle Business Process Management by Jan van Zoggel

Oracle BPM Catch Timer EventOracle Business Process Management uses transactions to control the steps throughout it’s processes. In the Oracle BPEL processes you are able to use a checkpoint to explicit force a dehydration during your process.

Oracle BPMN doesn’t have a specific activity to perform the same. However you can force a dehydration by using a timer catch event in your process. Setting the timer to 2 seconds is sufficient.

(I think this might actually be 1 second, but the manual claims that the duration should be more than 1 second so we use 2 seconds to be sure).

    Even if modifying the default value of property of "minBPELWait" to 1 second, do we have to set the timer to 2 seconds in order to force a dehydration?
