    Abstract: A method for processing a long running transaction for a service request includes receiving a service request at a workflow engine in communication with an original adapter and at least one receiving adapter wherein the original adapter generates the service request and the receiving adapter corresponds to a resource implementing a long running transaction in accordance with an instruction provided to the workflow engine by a business rule. The instruction is transmitted to the receiving adapter and an exception is received from receiving adapter. The exception is propagated to the business rule and to the original adapter. A notification indicating that the long running transaction is done is received from the receiving adapter, and the notification is propagated to the original adapter when all instructions provided by the business rule have been executed.
