The 'Abort' Function Fails to Stop a Running BPEL Instance in 11g (Doc ID 1406643.1)

Attempt to 'Abort' a running composite instance from the Enterprise Manager Console results in the instance showing as 'Terminated' but the instance actually continues to run.

One example would be a composite containing a long While loop.  An attempt to 'Abort' the instance while the loop is running will show the instance as 'Terminated' but the loop will actually complete.

How can a BPEL instance run in memory?
In order to do that you need to set the inMemoryOptimization property to true in the BPEL component in the projects that you are using.

Ex: composite.xml
<component name="SomeService">
<implementation.bpel src="SomeService.bpel"/>
<property name="bpel.config.inMemoryOptimization">true</property>
