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.

BPM Composer 12c New "Document-Only" Feature by Dan Atwood

 

clip_image002BPM 12c Business Process Composer has many new features, but one that is commonly overlooked is its "Document-Only" feature.

This makes it easy to create processes that are not validated or deployed when the other processes in the project are deployed.  This is useful when modeling the way things are currently working, and is commonly known as modeling the As-Is process.  An As-Is process’s purpose is to reach a common understanding of how things are working today and to determine through a consensus how the process should be improved.

With this goal in mind, always guard against spending an exorbitant amount of time modeling As-Is processes.  They should be left in a rough state, without any services, human tasks or user interfaces fully defined.  Because As-Is processes document problems in a business where work is lost, the process needs to be modelled with its sequence flows missing.  With this feature, you can leave your As-Is process intact in its inconsistent state and in the same project as your To-Be (or Should-Be) process models without impacting the project’s ability to be deployed.

This video demonstrates this feature as well as a best practice to help ensure that developers using Oracle BPM Studio understand that As-Is process models exist in a project. Watch the video here.

Video on Team Collaboration Using Oracle BPM 12c PAM by Jaideep

clip_image002When teams work on an Oracle BPM project, they can use the Process Asset Manager (PAM) to collaborate on the project. Oracle BPM 12c PAM helps Process developers using BPM Studio (JDeveloper) to collaborate with analysts using the Oracle BPM Composer. Team members can ‘publish’ or ‘commit’ BPM artifacts into PAM and ‘check-out’ or ‘update’ BPM artifacts from PAM. The Oracle BPM 12c PAM also supports versioning functionality. It’s basically a subversion repository that is built into the product. It also includes support for Security and Access Control, Conflict Resolution, Diff and Merge, Reporting of business assets in the catalog and their history, and the ability to create project snapsots, so that you can revert back to a stable version of the project. Watch the video here.

clip_image002Enterprise Maps, Value Chain Modeling and Strategy Models – These are all new modeling types that are introduced as part of the Oracle Process Composer in the 12.1.3 version of the Oracle BPM Suite.

Here is a quick, two minute tour of these new modeling types in Oracle Process Composer.

Types of Modeling

These new types of modeling are a step in the right direction for business to model the high level models and map them to the lower level, executable business models.

Enterprise Maps

Enterprise Maps are the highest level of modeling, level 0. The show lanes and process areas. Some common examples of process areas are Sales, Marketing, HR and R&D. Of course, the process areas in an Enterprise Map will very much depend on the type of organization that is being modeled and the structure of that organization.

“The Enterprise Map described the primary business functions of an enterprise and the pieces of the organization that perform those functions” – Oracle Process Composer Watch the video here.
