BPEL executable to BPEL code

Hi everyone:

We have a BPEL process that runs successfully processing EDI records. But we do not have the source code of it for fixing any future bugs and/or making enhancements. The person who developed is not available. Please share if you have any suggestion/recommendation to get the BPEL source code from the executable? We run SOA 12c.

Thanks and appreciate your help in advance.

    If you log into the EM and go to the soa-infra, you can go to the specific composite and download the current version.


    Then click on your composite and in the menu choose Export:


    You can have several options: for instance downlaod with or without post deployment/configuration plan modifications.

    Very handy if you want to see what the configuration plan has done to the composite.


    In your case you probably want option 4: Export with no post-deploy changes.

    You can then unzip or unjar the downlaoded soa composite and turn it into a JDeveloper project.

    (but make sure you put this under version control right away).

    Adding to Martein's comment.

    To import the composite archive directly into Jdeveloper with extracting the jar file

    1) Create a new SOA application(if it doesnot already exists). File-->new-->SOA application

    2) After the application is created, import the SOA archive. File-->Import-->select SOA archive Into SOA project

    3) give your project a name and select the jar file exported from EM console
