Asynchronous Call to PL/SQL Program is Timing Out Waiting on Response (Doc ID 943000.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 19, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle SOA Platform - Version 11.1.1.1.0 to 11.1.1.7.0 [Release 11gR1]
Oracle(R) BPEL Process Manager - Version 10.1.3.1 to 10.1.3.5.0
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

You have a long-running PL/SQL program.
You have heard that to avoid a JTA transaction timeout, you can configure a BPEL process as follows:

- do not set "My Role" when configuring the database adapter partnerlink
- do not create an output variable for the invoke activity

This is supposed to force BPEL to asynchronously call the PLSQL program and immediately continue
with the next BPEL activity.
But this configuration instead is causing the invoke activity to wait on a response from the
PL/SQL program until it eventually times out.
Even with the nonBlockingInvoke property set to 'true' for the database partnerlink, the issue
occurs.
