BPM 12c Subprocesses (Part 2 of 3): Embedded Subprocess by Antonis Antoniou

clip_image001

In this second blog on sub-processes we will explore the embedded sub-processes, also referred to as inline sub-processes and as the name implies this is a sub-process type that consists of a series of activities (for example tasks, gateways, events, etc.) that resides within the parent process.

An embedded sub-process has certain distinct characteristics such as they always begin with a none start event and end with a non end event, they do not contain swimlanes and most importantly they share their parent’s context, meaning they can access parent process data which simplifies things since you are not required to define input and output parameters and pass them as data objects. If required you can defined data objects that are local to your embedded sub-process.
An embedded sub-process is mainly used to simplify the process model by grouping activities together into an embedded sub-process that can be collapsed or expanded to hide and show the implementation details.
Another common use of the embedded sub-process is to define loops which will be the case with the sample process that we will implement as part of this blog post.
We will be implementing a very simple process which will make use of the embedded sub-process to loop through a list of order items for review.
Create the basic BPM application and BPM project (i named it OracleBPM12cEmbeddedSubProcessDemoApp and OracleBPM12cEmbeddedSubProcessDemo respectively) and choose "Empty Composite" in step 3 of the "Create BPM Application" wizard since we will first create the the XSD schema file to describe our process’s input and output parameters.

Calling a Service in BPM Composer by Waslley Souza

 

clip_image001In the previous post, we created a simple BPM process using BPM Composer.
Now, let’s improve our process including a Service Call to save the employees added.
For this, we will need to do some changes.

Download the sample application: MyProject.zip

Go to Business Catalog.

Add a new Service and call it as CreateEmployeeService.
I’m using the service that I created here: Expose Application Module as SOAP Web Service.

Add a Service Task activity between the Initiator activity and the End event.
Call it as SaveEmployee.

Double-click on SaveEmployee activity.
In the Implementation section, set the type as Service Call and the Service as CreateEmployeeService.
Click on Apply Changes. Read the complete article here.

Oracle and Adaptive Case Management: Part 2 by Jan Kettenis

 

clip_image001This posting is the second of a series about Oracle Adaptive Case Management. The first one can be found here. I discuss the different options to define an activity, and the setting you can use to configure when and how activities are started.
There are two ways to implement an activity in ACM. The first one is by creating a Human Task and then "promote" it (as it is called) to an activity. The other way is to create a business process and promote that as an activity. As far as I know there are also plans to use a BPEL process to implement an activity, but that option is not there yet.
When using a Human Task the limitations of it (obviously) are that of a human task, meaning that the means to do some to do some pre- or post-processing for the activity are very limited. There are only a few hooks for Java call outs and XPath expressions, but as processing of that happens on the Human Workflow Engine this won’t show up in Enterprise Manager, and error handling will be hard if not impossible. So, when you for example need to call a service before or after a human task (like sending a notification email) you better use a process. Read the complete article here.
