 These questions are all discussed and answered in (lab 3). shows also code for it. 

When you add a severity ERROR information to the information collector, the follow up action should prevent the save. As far as I understand , the whole preconditions and follow up actions are run in a transaction, that is also the reason, why pre-conditions and follow up actions should be fast.
