BPM 11g – Using two dates to calculate and implement a SLA by Suyash Khot

clip_image002A very common use case for using an SLA (Service Level Agreement) is when there is a start date-time (not necessarily the current date-time) and an end date-time and you want to use the time difference between those two dates as your SLA in your BPM process. In the good old BPM 10g days you could do that easily. You could take the two dates and subtract one from the other and the result could be used as a SLA value. Unfortunately, the same cannot be done in BPM 11g as easily but we do have a solution.

The following will demonstrate how the above scenario can be achieved in BPM 11g. Since the SLA calculation itself is just a few lines of Java code, we will use a BPEL component called 'Java Embedding' for it. It does exactly what the name suggests; it embeds Java code into a BPEL process. In this blog, we will kill two birds with one stone and will look at the Java code to calculate the SLA value and also look at how to embed that into a reusable BPEL process. The BPEL process can then be referenced or invoked from any client, including a BPM process.

  1. Create a very simple reusable synchronous BPEL process. This BPEL process will be the SLA calculation utility. The input payload will have the two date-times (start date-time and end date-time) as strings. The output payload will have the calculated SLA value as string.
  2. We will set the output variable in the ‘Java Embedding’ component later, but for it to work the output variable has to have already been initialized. Therefore, let’s initialize the output variable. Drag the ‘Assign’ component and give it an appropriate name and assign a default value to the output variable. I have assigned it ‘PT60M’, which translates to 60 minutes Duration. Here are some examples of Duration code:

PT5M - five minutes
P1D - a day
P1M - a month
P1Y1DT1H1S - one year, one day, one hour, and one second

Why your Initiator Task is not Visible in the Oracle BPM Workspace by Dan Atwood

image Everyone getting started with Oracle BPM struggles getting the link for a process's Initiator task to appear in the Workspace's Applications tab at one time or another.

This short video goes over the six (ok - really seven) most common reasons that this occurs and how each is resolved.

BPM 12c Gateways (Part 5 of 5): Event-based Gateway by Antonis Antoniou

clip_image002My last article on gateways is on the event-based gateway, another type of gateway supported by Oracle BPM 12c to provide divergence in processes.
The event-based gateway is very similar, conceptual wise, to the exclusive gateway in the sense that we can have various outgoing sequence flows but only one branch is followed. The operational difference though is that, as its name suggests, the event-based gateway uses events for defining the branching conditions and decisions rather than data-specific conditions.

An event-based gateway can consist of multiple events; however the first event that occurs will determine the execution path that will be followed.
Using the order process as an example, once an order is received and validated it needs to be processed. Assuming that we have multiple warehouses, the order will be processed by the warehouse that can process all inventory items ordered and responds first. The process will wait until one of the warehouses responds to the request for processing the order. However, the process cannot wait indefinitely.
So let's see how we can implement the above scenario using the event-based gateway.
Let's start with creating the basic BPM application and BPM project (named both application and project "EventBasedGatewayDemo") and selecting "Composite with BPMN Process" in step 3. Read the complete article here.

Refining your BPM process by Red Mavericks

clip_image002Ah… The holiday season! Time to be with your family, eat like an elephant, getting stuck in endless traffic jams and moving in overcrowded shopping malls. No better time to write BPM articles, right? Actually, wrong! Curiously, a peak in activity actually absorbed me completely and we couldn’t do all the stuff that we wanted to. Anyway, we’re back.

Last time, we defined and modeled our first business process in BPMN. It modeled the “Request a parking space” process, with the behavior described in the textual process description. Now we’ll refine that process so that when we decide to implement it, we’ll take less time to do so.

Optimize before implementation VS implement before optimization

There’s an interesting debate as to whether or not should the first version of the BPM model be optimized before the implementation.

Some say “of course…why would you put a substandard process in production?”, while others argue “don’t worry and put the first version of the process in production ASAP, because the BPM lifecycle will guarantee an optimized version by itself in the second iteration, based on facts, not perceptions”.

Both approaches are valid and you can choose either one. Just don’t over do it if you go with the first one, or you’ll never get a version in production.

We typically choose the first approach, but we put a (half) day cap on the optimization work (one full day if the process is complex), to limit what we do. By the end of that (half) day the process goes on for implementation with whatever optimizations done in that time. This also help us focus and go for quick wins instead of nitpicking.
With our experience, we can look at a business process and quickly identify possible improvements. In time, you will too.

See any patterns?

If you look at the process version from the last article, you’ll see somethings that appear to be repeated. These are typically good candidates for optimization.
If you can factorize these into a reusable piece, you would only need to implement it once and then reuse it as many times as you want.

How To Start a Case in Oracle Adaptive Case Management 12c by Andrejus Baranovskis

clip_image002Blog reader was asking to describe how to start a new case in Oracle ACM 12c. You can read my previous blog post on ACM 12c topic - Adaptive Case Management 12c and ADF Human Tasks. There are multiple ways to start a case, depends if you want just to test the case or really use it. I would recommend to use SoapUI to test the case. In the real scenario, case most likely will be started from third party web service or through ACM 12c Java API. Here I would like to describe, how you could use SoapUI to test ACM process during development.
Once ACM 12c application is deployed, you could open it in EM. There is the option to test deployed composite and invoke it through EM Web Service tester. In the example below you can see startCase operation selected and payload structure displayed. Unfortunately it doesn't work well to test ACM process through EM, payload structure is very confusing and it usually fails with mandatory attributes missing errors:

Instead I would recommend to use SoapUI to test the ACM 12c composite. You could download and use it free of charge. Start the tool and choose to create New SOAP Project: Read the complete article here.
