Class: Ruote::Exp::UndoExpression

Inherits:
FlowExpression show all
Defined in:
lib/ruote/exp/fe_undo.rb

Overview

Undoes (cancels) another expression referred by its tag.

pdef = Ruote.process_definition do
  concurrence do
    alpha :tag => 'kilroy'
    undo :ref => 'kilroy'
  end
end

This example is rather tiny, but it shows a process branch (undo) cancelling another (alpha).

cancel

This expression is aliased to 'cancel'

cancel :ref => 'invoicing_stage'

a bit shorter

It's OK to shorten

cancel :ref => 'invoicing_stage'

to

cancel 'invoicing_stage'

kill

kill :ref => 'invoicing stage'

will cancel the target expression and bypass any on_cancel handler set for it.

concurrence do
  sequence :tag => 'x', :on_cancel => 'y' do
    # ...
  end
  sequence do
    # ...
    kill 'x'
  end
end

In this example the :on_cancel => 'y' will get ignored if kill 'x' kicks in.
