Open ESB Tip : Giving the BPEL Monitor a Business Skin

Although the BPEL Monitor provides a technical user with the process status information this may be too detailed for someone within the business who may be interested in the progress of information through the system and therefore we need to consider an alternative view of the business processes that would be useful to a none technical user. To facilitate this I have leveraged some of the extended functionality available within the BpelSvgGenerator.jar file that allows for the replacement of standard, minimised, icons to be modified for a specific activity. This blog details how to present your business processes in a business manner.

Open ESB Tip: Adding Icon Sets To The BPEL Monitor

Read the original article at The Crooked Stick

This is a quick blog entry the documents some new functionality (to help pre-sale) that allows the addition of new extended Icon Sets to an already deployed Monitor application. This assumes that you have the latest version of the war file installed (build date 13th November 2009 or later).

<script type="text/javascript"> $(document).ready(function(){ $("#traildiv").load("../resource/bpel-monitor/MonitorTrail.html"); $("#resourcediv").load("../resource/bpel-monitor/MonitorResources.html"); $("#traildiv").load("resource/bpel-monitor/MonitorTrail.html"); $("#resourcediv").load("resource/bpel-monitor/MonitorResources.html"); }); </script>

Adding New Icon Sets

With the latest release of the Monitor we are able to customise the Monitor Web Application by adding additional Icon Sets. Once added these Icons can be used instead of the standard shipped Icons. The following step show you how to this can be done:

  1. Create an Icon Set of type .png and with the specific names used in the existing Icon Sets. To check you have this correct look in <glassfish domain>/applications/j2ee-modules/BPELMonitorWebApplication/resources/icons/openesb.
  2. Create a sub directory of <glassfish domain>/applications/j2ee-modules/BPELMonitorWebApplication/resources/icons to contain your icons (myicons) and copy the icons into it.
  3. Edit the <glassfish domain>/applications/j2ee-modules/BPELMonitorWebApplication/iconsets.properties file and add the following:

    myicons=My Icons Display Name (This is what will appear in the drop down)

  4. Refresh the monitor page and choose your Icon Set.

Open ESB Tip : Getting Started With The OpenESB BPEL Monitor

Read the original article at The Crooked Stick

Following my previous blog entries on building an Open ESB BPEL Monitor I decided to bring it all together in this blog and provide a simple User Guide that describes the current features. This page will also be available from within the downloaded war file (assuming you can connect to the internet).

Open ESB Tip: Enhanced Ajax Based BPEL Monitor

Following on from my previous BPEL Monitoring Blog entries I have tweaked, yet again, the web application and some of the underlying SVG Generation code. These tweaks are relatively minor but hopefully provide the user with some useful additional functionality. A quick 5 minute video can be seen at the end of this blog to demonstrate the functionality now available.

Open ESB : NetBeans BPEL Documentation Plug-in Upload Functionality

As mentioned in my previous entry "Extending the Template Based BPEL Document Generator" I would be looking at linking into Adjoovo Spaces as a source for extended BPEL annotation. Whilst looking into this option I decided that what I also needed was the ability to upload BPEL information to the various repositories I was working with and on further investingation decided to extend the NetBeans Module associated within the Documentation Generator (NetBeans Module for BPEL Documentation Generation) to include this functionality.

Because I have done more JDBC and LDAP programming than REST Web Services I decided that I would build the Adjoovo Spaces Upload Action first and this blog entry covers the additional functionality I created and how I accessed the Spaces using the REST API.
