Sending Dynamic HTML-based Emails for SOA and BPM Projects by Mark Peterson

Sending email notifications in Oracle BPEL or BPM projects can turn into a major effort if you are not using ADF–and sometimes even if you are using ADF. If you use ADF, you can leverage features such as HTML editors and actionable emails. But in many situations you may need a stand-alone email formatting solution that doesn’t involve ADF, that can produce a simple HTML-based email, and that doesn’t need to be actionable. You will find that that simple SOA-based approach helps you implement your requirements efficiently and effectively.

This approach

  • Integrates with BPM and BPEL
  • Is HTML-based and can contain dynamic information from a database
  • Leverages BPEL and BPM direct assignments and role-based assignments
  • Includes a template selector, for sending different types of emails
  • Handles attachments
  • Intercepts and redirects emails for testing purposes

A detailed description of this email notification system is described below. Upon request we would be happy to provide the actual project code describe here.
