Hi all,

I try to implement "continue on fail" with different actions (Forward, 
Voicemail, InbandInfo...) based on failure type (No Answer, Busy...)and 
come into troubles how to do :-)

 From what I know about FreeSWITCH (very few :-) I see three solutions, 
but I do not like any of them :-)

Pre: My dialplan si served by http server through mod_xml_curl.

1. After the failure use something "Asterisk like"
<action application="transfer" data="${originate_disposition}"/>
But why should I invoke transfer (new dialplan parsing, garbage in CDR) 
for such a simple thing?

2. Use ...break="never"... and serve next extension through 
mod_xml_curl. Bur it invokes unnecessary http request and even I ask, 
why should I send it in parts if I know all I need at the beginning of 
the call?

3. Use custom app to handle processing of failed bridge.
<action application="bridge" data="sofia/xxx/yyy%zzz"/>
<action application="whatever_lang" data="whatever_name 
But I dislike to start new process/thread (performance) and, like in 
previous cases, why to do it i parts, if have all info at the beginnig?

If I look to my ideas, I'm sure I miss something important :-)
Could you, please, point me to right way? Or just tell me your "rating" 
of cases above :-)

Thank you very much!

Best regards,
