ActiveVOS Designer User’s Guide
Previous | Next
The ActiveVOS tutorial guides you through creating a Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) process, testing the process in simulation mode, then deploying the process to the server and using remote debugging.
You will create a loan approval process definition. The process describes the interactions among three participants, as well as the control flow and decisions based on exchanged data. It is based on Web Services Description Language (WSDL) documents that describe the messages and business operations used in the process.
When you have completed the tutorial you will have worked with many of ActiveVOS’s capabilities. Be sure to see ActiveVOS Feature Tour and Tips and Tricks for a discussion of product capabilities.
The tutorial is divided into the following sections:
You will learn how to create the tutorial project, create and open a process document, and become familiar with the ActiveVOS environment.
You will learn how to use the Process Editor and graphical toolkit to develop the sample loan approval process BPEL definition.
You will learn to add a participant role for the process itself to provide the BPEL-required partner link.
You will learn the powerful shortcuts in ActiveVOS to create receive, reply and invoke activities in a process by starting with a WSDL operation.
You will learn how to complete a process definition by adding control flows. You will learn how to view your process in both a graphical and hierarchical view. You will learn how to create namespaces, variables, and activities manually and define properties for them.
You will learn how to catch errors sent to the process.
A short discussion of these topics, which are not included in the sample process.
You will learn how to simulate execution of your process with sample data values.
You will learn how to create a process deployment descriptor file and package several files into a business process archive for deployment to the ActiveVOS server.
You will learn how to deploy, run, manage, and test a process on the ActiveVOS server. You will create a process request form to start the process from ActiveVOS Central.
You will learn how to set up remote process launch configurations to debug a process running on the server.
