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

clip_image001

In this third and last part of a three part series on subprocesses we will explore a special type of subprocess referred to as an “Event” subprocess.
This type of subprocess is triggered by an event that can occur anytime during the execution of a process flow that allows you to interrupt the normal flow of an instance.
Such capability can be applicable in various use cases. For example, an error might occur in the process, or you can very well define various service level agreements to delineate execution times or you can even have a business requirement to cancel a flow (for example cancel an order).
You can use the “Event” subprocess to implement such requirements (i.e. handle system and business exceptions).
“Event” subprocesses posses various unique characteristics. One of them is that, by configuration, you can have an “Event” subprocess either as interrupting, that is interrupting the normal process flow execution or have an “Event” subprocess running in parallel (concurrently) to the main flow of your process.
Another really nice and useful characteristics of an “Event” subprocess is that it shares the same context as the main flow of the process, meaning that from the “Event” subprocess you can have access to all the data objects that are used by the main process (and of course update their state).
An “Event” subprocess resembles like an embedded subprocess (except that it’s displayed in a dashed-line boarder), however an “Event” subprocess cannot have outgoing or incoming sequence flows. And just as with the other types of subprocesses an “Event” subprocess can define data objects that are local to its scope.We will implement a very simple process that will make use of the event sub-process to simulate the functional use case depicted by the image above; the scenario is straightforward, you can cancel an order as long as it’s not shipped.

Process Timers – Controlling the time in which your process executes by Jose Rodrigues

clip_image002

Following up a series of questions around setting timers in the Oracle Community forums, I decided to write this article to try and guide their use and how these can be used to control process execution.

Let’s start!

The Use Case

We’ll begin by setting up the scenario in which we’ll have to control our process flow.

Imagine that you want to have a part of your process that executes immediately if the current time is between 08:00am and 04:00pm (16:00 hours for us Europeans), or wait until 08:00am if it’s outside that interval.

It’s frequent to have some kind of control in parts of the processes, for instance when you want to send SMS to your customers. You certainly don’t want to do it at 03:00am.

How will we make this?

We should use a Catch Timer event, of course, and XPATH’s DateTime functions to check the current time and to set the timer to way for next morning’s 08:00.

The Catch Timer event has several ways to be configured (triggered at specific dates and times, on a specific schedule – every day at 10:28:00 (repeatable), or in a time cycle – every 2 minutes), but we’ll focus on the one where we configure the timer to wait for a specific time and date. More on the others perhaps in another article.

We’ll illustrate the use of timers with an example process. You can, of course, adapt it to your needs.

Defining the execution conditions

So you start by defining a gateway that will split the execution between:

  • Immediate
  • Wait for 08:00am
    • This will have to be split into prior to midnight and after midnight. but for now, we’ll consider the scenario of only two options.

So, you set the expression on the conditional flow that will do the immediate execution, leaving the condition that must wait for 08:00 as the unconditional (default) branch.

The expression should be something like this: Read the complete article here.

Getting started with Process Cloud Service by Waslley Souza

clip_image002If you know and use Oracle BPM Suite, you will like to try the new cloud solution called Oracle Process Cloud Service or PCS. With PCS you can modeling your processes through the cloud without the need to install Oracle BPM Suite. Go to PCS section within the Oracle Cloud website to learn more about or try it: http://cloud.oracle.com/process.

In this post we will create a basic process to create and approve employees.
Download the sample application: CreateEmployeeApplication.zip.

Log in to Oracle Process Cloud Service.
Click Create button, and then select New Application.

Name the application as Create Employee Application.
Select New Space option, and then name it as HR.

In this step, we will create the process and we have many options to create it.
Select the Form Approval Pattern option.

Name the process as Create Employee Process.

In the Create Employee Process, right-click Submit Request, and then select Implement. Read the complete article here.

PCS Travel Request Management – Process Form Creation by Red Mavericks

The fourth video by Red Mavericks (http://www.redmavericks.com) addresses the use of Oracle's Process Cloud Service to build and deploy a full working Business Travel Request application in 40 minutes.
This is the first of a series of 4 videos that will guide you through the application creation process of a BPM application, using near zero code, which makes it particularly suitable for Business Analysts to also be engaged.

clip_image001

For this part, the focus is on Process Form Design using Oracle's PCS Web Form builder, i.e. the process diagram that will guide the application's general behavior. The use case was made for Link Consulting's (http://www.linkconsulting.com/oracle) Process Cloud Event, held on July 2015. Watch the video here.
