Comment on What Is BPMN Method and Style? by Bruce Silver
Blog: BPMS Watch - Bruce Silver
Today I am more accepting of those things. The merge gateways are redundant to the direct merge semantics, which is why I say leave them out. The join into a None end event at least has the merit of emphasizing that both paths must complete . I suspect the QUT style has to do with mapping to Petri nets- not sure. In the BPMN 1.1/1.2 era we suffered through block-structured gateways in order to accommodate BPEL. BPMN 2.0 was an explicit rejection of that.
