Oracle SOA Suite 11g has some great features to recover faulted instances automatically. When a BPEL process flow errors out, it is retried with all its invocations. This is undesirable in some cases. For example if re-calling a composite results in duplicated data, data have been changed before the recovery is planned to be executed or you do not want to create too many composite instances in order to save the space in your SOAINFRA-schema. See below the different places where automatic recoveries are configured / disabled.
1) Change RecurringScheduleConfig (see also the screenshot below)

Right-click soa-infra (SOA_cluster_name)

Choose SOA Administration > BPEL Properties

Click "More BPEL Configuration Properties"

Click "Recovery Config"

Change values for RecurringScheduleConfig

maxMessageRaiseSize = 0

startWindowTime = 00:00

stopWindowTime = 00:00

Click Apply

2) Change StartupScheduleConfig (see also the screenshot below)

Right-click soa-infra (SOA_cluster_name)

Choose SOA Administration > BPEL Properties

Click "More BPEL Configuration Properties"

Click "Recovery Config"

Change values forStartupScheduleConfig

maxMessageRaiseSize = 0

startupRecoveryDuration = 0

subsequentTriggerDelay = 0

Click Apply

3) Change GlobalTxMaxRetry

The property GlobalTxMaxRetry specifies how many retries are performed if an error is identified as a retriable one. For example, after several web service invocations, if dehydration fails due to a data source error, then this is identified as a retriable error and all activities from the prior dehydration state are retried. If the activities being retried are not idempotent (that is, their state can change with each retry and is not guaranteed to give the same behavior), then multiple retries can be problematic.
You can set GlobalTxMaxRetry to 0 in the Systems MBean Browser.

Right-click soa-infra (SOA_cluster_name)

Choose SOA Administration > Common Properties

Click "More SOA Infra Advanced Configuration Properties"

Click "GlobalTxMaxRetry"

In the Value field, enter an appropriate value

Click Apply
