Repeat prior process steps

Hello everybody,

we are currently trying to solve a problem, that seems to be some kind of tricky. Probably someone here ran into the same situation and can give me a hint what to do…

We have a service-task, calling a remote system to execute some write-operation asynchronously. After that service-task, we enter a "Receive-Task", that waits for a Callback of the remote system.

Last night we ran into a situation, where the remote system accepted our request, but then lost the operation. So, currently we are waiting for a Callback of an operation that was never executed…

Is there any best practice for a situation like this?

We were trying to set the
act_id_
in
act_ru_execution
table to the prior step and then trigger the execution manually, but this caused some internal errors like NullPointerExceptions in ExecutionEntity.ensureProcessDefinitionInitialized() -  so we seem to miss something here ;)

Any ideas for that kind of problems?

Thanks in advance and best regards
Christoph
