    Invoking A BPM Process

    958952
      Hi All,

      1. What is general architectural practice of exposing a BPM Process? We are into development and currently calling BPM processes directly using WSDL URLs generated by EM.
      2. In how many ways can we expose a BPM process? For e.g. a) Web Service b) EJB Service ???
      3. What is most widely used method/architecture of calling a BPM Process?
      4. What is most widely used tool/API to call BPM process?

      Thanks.

          Invoking a BPM process via web service call is probably the most common way... Pretty much any tool capable of invoking webservices can then invoke your BPM...

          Cheers,

            yes, the most common way to invoke the BPM process is via Web Service. Alternatively you can use the BPM API to invoke the BPM Process.

              A BPM process 'start' activity can have many implementations, only one of them is 'Message' (i.e. a web service interface).
              A process can also be instantiated using a 'signal' / event if you're adopting a loosely coupled, event driven architecture (read about Oracle Event delivery network).

              To see all your options, right click on your 'Start' -> Properties -> Implementation -> Implementation type

                Can someone teach me how to or show me an example that I can call 'Message Start Event' with SoapUI.
