What about CMMN (Case Management Model and Notation) ? by Jan van Zoggel

image

When we started our Case Management adventure the Case Management Model and Notation (CMMN) standard was still relatively new and unknown. (May 2014 the official 1.0 release was released). Both our design tool (Enterprise Architect) and implementation software (Oracle  Adaptive Case Management) did not support the CMMN notation so we created our own “way-of-modelling”.

In our teams that means that the process analysts/designers use powerful tools like SparxSystem Enterprise Architect (EA) with its integrated BPM(N) and SOA support. However manually adding text documents describing the relation the specific process or task has in the whole case. You would think that the CMMN notation could easily be integrated in one of the leading architecture and design tools out there. There are some niche products out there that see a market for CMMN modelling like Trisotech, however SparxSystem seems to have no plans at all. Read the complete article here.

BPM Worklist API 12.2.1.1 and Custom ADF 12.2.1.1 Application by Andrejus Baranovskis

image

I have updated my sample app with BPM API usage in ADF application to 12.2.1.1. Originally this was developed with ADF/BPM 11.1.1.7 – Dynamic ADF Buttons Solution for Oracle BPM Outcomes. There are several changes in BPM libraries usage. I will describe it all step by step.
Download sample application – adfbpm12211.zip. This archive contains both BPM and ADF app. BPM process implements two roles – request holiday and approve holiday:

Main goal of such use case – we don’t want to use out of the box Oracle Worklist app, but prefer to develop our own business logic and manage BPM process from custom ADF app through BPM API. It is important to initialize Workflow context one time during login, this can be heavy operation and we should not call it each time when BPM API is invoked: Read the complete article here.

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

image

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.

Input XML

This is a sample of the input XML. Notice the data includes

  • A record ID – Used to pull data from the database for embedding information in the email
  • An array of "TO" email addresses – Use to lookup email addresses from user names or BPM application roles. Read the complete article here.

PCS 16.3.5 New Features Part 1 –> Introduction to Web Forms by Niall Commiskey

image

Your starting point should be the What’s New doc for PCS 16.3.5. Click here to read it.
One of the most interesting additions is the new web forms functionality.
Let’s be honest, the previous Frevvo based forms were rather basic, they’ve even been renamed Basic Forms. So now you have the choice, you take either the basic forms – very effective for eGov style forms based apps – or else the new web forms with their richer UI. So let’s take a look.

Web Forms

From the docs –
This release introduces a powerful and intuitive new forms editor for creating forms without rules scripting. The editor lets developers create multiple views (presentations) for a single form, reuse forms within forms, brand them by uploading a CSS stylesheet, create list of values (LOV) tables, and fetch data using REST connections.The new forms editor is called Web Forms, and the existing forms editor is now called Basic Forms. Read the complete article here.

Creating and editing forms in Process Cloud Service by Patrick Sinke

image

For whom is PCS?

Oracle Process Cloud Service is a PaaS (Platform as a Service) offering which centers around designing and managing (stand alone) business processes in the cloud. The focus is once again on business analysts and other non-technical people to automate business processes. Oracle has keyed them “citizen developers”. One of the features is the option to create forms that fulfill the “human task” interaction in the BPM process.

A walkthrough for creating a form

For the sake of ease, login to the Process Cloud BPM Composer. Create a new app and choose “Quickstart App”. Select the Travel Approval.

The process is displayed. Drag a human task type “Submit” into the process.
Now click on the app and a blue “hamburger icon” appears. When you click on it the detail view is displayed:

Now press on the + icon to go to the Form page.
Creating a new input form is childishly easy; drag and drop the elements of choice to the canvas and enter the name, description and other basic properties. It’s all very very straightforward. Read the complete article here.

Missing BPM plugin issue in BPM Quick Start 12.2.1.1.0 – How To Fix it by Ganesh Kumar Krishnan

image

With the release of Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c, Oracle introduced the concept of Quick Start distributions that allow developers to install a development or evaluation environment on a single host computer. The quick start distribution is available for both Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle BPM Process Management Suite and, if you are like me, chances are, you may prefer to install them separately and independently to try out the various new features they offer. Installing them separately also helps with the performance of JDeveloper, as it could reduce the number of design time plugins loaded during the design time.

What is the problem?

When you install the SOA and BPM 12.2.1.1.0 Quick Start distributions independently, in separate ORACLE_HOMEs, but on the same machine, you may find you run into a problem where the BPM Plugin is missing from the BPM distribution’s JDeveloper IDE.The problem manifests when you launch the JDeveloper IDE from the SOA distribution (before launching the BPM distribution), and will mean that the BPM Plugin extension will not get loaded into the JDeveloper IDE, and you will not be able to develop BPM processes.

Where is the problem?

Although the SOA and BPM Quick Start distributions are different, the underlying JDeveloper IDE is the same, and both IDEs point to the same build version, as shown below. Read the complete article here.
