Authored by : David Read, Oracle Product Management

Earlier today, Sushil Shukla, Yogeshwar Kuntawar, and I (David Read) delivered an OpenWorld session that covered BPM design best practices.  It was well attended.  We’ve varied the content over the last few years to cover both lifecycle development process as well as design topics.  This year we narrowed the focus to a number of design topics that frequently come up in discussion with customers and partners.

We started with an overview of several general but important areas:

  •  Data handling, specifically avoid selection failures a runtime
  • Common questions about multi-instance activities
  • Common questions and suggestions around conversations and correlation

Yogesh then covered importance concepts around error handling and recover.  In particular:

  • Types of errors and suggestions for best practice in deciding when to use BPMN constructs and when to leverage the SOA fault framework
  • How transaction rollback impacts running processes and how to perform message recovery.
  • Suggestions for avoiding transaction rollbacks

Sushil closed the session with a discussion about the importance of identity service integration design.  Key points included:

  • What happens during authentication
  • Which BPM features utilize LDAP 
  •  Options and suggestions for integration with external directories

OpenWorld Session: Oracle Unified BPM Suite Development Best Practices

Blog by David Read

Earlier today,  Sushil Shukla, Yogeshwar Kuntawar, and I (David Read) delivered an OpenWorld  session that covered BPM development best practices.  It was well attended.  Last year we had a session that covered end-to-end lifecycle best practices for BPM.  This year we narrowed the focus to the development portion of the lifecycle.  We started with an overview of development process best practices, then focused on a few key design topics where we’ve seen common questions from customers and partners.

  • Data Design
  • Using EDN
  • Multi-Instance Activity
  • Using the Spring Component
  • Human Task Integration

We wrapped up with an overview of key concepts for effective error handling, including error handling within the process design, and using declarative fault policies.

We hope you found the session useful, and as noted in the session, please be sure to try to attend Prasen’s session to see more details about approaches for testing Oracle Business Rules:
