wso2bps fault notification for default fault behaviour

I have a BPEL process that does a number of invoke activities. By default, if you leave the "Fault on Failure" setting to default the process will come to a graceful halt if an invoke fails. You can then restart the process using the api or UI. That is all very well and good but how do you notify somebody/anybody that something has gone wrong without the fault handler. As soon as you strap a fault handler into the mix the process appears to have no choice but to go through the fault handler and then terminate. There doesnt appear to be any way to have a mix of both words where you could react to the fault and notify somebody but still allow the process to be recovered gracefully when the problem is resolved.

I would be grateful for any advice

thanks Paul
