Error Recovery and Restart Mechanism for the Distribution
Process of Electornic Folders
a process which restarts the distribution of an
electronic folder for the most probable failure cases, greatly
reducing the need for "human intervention".
The following is a list of the errors handled by this process:
errors - such as a system down at distribution
information errors - a user has been deleted or has corrupt
3. Delegation rule
violations - the system halts distribution of an
electronic folder to a recipient if the recipient is a result of
multiple delegations. For example, the recipient is the
the alternate of the original recipient.
worker returns and turns delegation off, the recipient will be
reset based on the new (valid) current delegation information
4. Delegatee user
information errors - user has been deleted or
contains corrupt information.
user will utilize a batch job which runs every
night to kick-off any stalled distributions that do not require human
intervention. This job also retries any electronic folders whose
errors have been corrected from the prior run.
A high level view of this process is shown in the Figure.
this process includes an automated procedure for
restarting the distribution process as part of error recovery. The
automated process will correct as much as possible and continue (or
restart) the distributi...
