Create the InventoryService BPEL Process


The next step in the Purchase Order sample project is to create the InventoryService BPEL Process.

Creating the InventoryService BPEL Process

The HTTP-SOAP-PO-BPEL project utilizes two BPEL processes, InventoryService.bpel, which creates a response message with the status of the inventory, and POService.bpel, which creates the purchase order response.

For this example the BPEL Designer's Design view and the BPEL Mapper are used to create the BPEL process.

For more information about using the BPEL Designer, see Developer Guide to BPEL Designer.

To create the InventoryService BPEL process

  1. From the Project window, right-click the HTTP-SOAP-PO-BPEL project's Process Files directory and select New → BPEL Process from the pop-up menu. The New BPEL Process wizard appears displaying the Name and Location page.
  2. From the New BPEL Process wizard, enter InventoryService for the File Name.
  3. Click Finish. The BPEL Designer appears containing the new BPEL process.

To Create the InventoryService business process using the BPEL Designer

  1. From the Project window, double-click InventoryService.bpel , under the project's Process Files directory. The Design view of the InOutMapper.bpel is displayed graphically in the IDE's BPEL Designer.

Specify InventoryService BPEL Process Business Logic

To specify the business logic for the InventoryService BPEL process

  1. Specify the business logic for the If1 element (not the Assign1 element) from the BPEL Mapper as follows:
    1. Select the If1 element in the BPEL Designer's Design view, and click the Designer's Mapper button to open the BPEL Mapper. The If1 activity is displayed in the BPEL Mapper window.
    2. From the BPEL Mapper, expand the nodes in the Output pane.
    3. From the BPEL Mapper toolbar's String menu, select Starts With. The Starts With function box appears in the Mapping pane.
    4. Map the orderDescription node, under Variables → IsInventoryAvailableIn → purchaseOrder in the Output pane of the BPEL Mapper, to the first inbound String node of the Starts With function box. To do this, click on the orderDescription node, and drag your cursor to the first String node of the Starts With function box. A link now joins the two nodes.
    5. From the BPEL Mapper toolbar's String menu, select String Literal. A String Literal function box appears in the Mapping pane. Enter OrderVal, as the String Literal value.
    6. Map the outbound OrderVal node of the String Literal function box to the second inbound String node of the Starts With function box.
    7. Map the outbound Boolean node of the Starts With function box to the Boolean Condition node under If1 in the Input pane of the BPEL Mapper.

  2. Specify the business logic for the Assign1 element from the BPEL Mapper as follows:
    1. From the BPEL Designer's Design view, select the Assign1 element and click the Mapper button to open the BPEL Mapper.
      The Assign1 activity is displayed in the BPEL Mapper window.
    2. Map orderId, under Variables → IsInventoryAvailableIn → purchaseOrder in the Output pane of the BPEL Mapper, to orderId, under Variables → IsInventoryAvailableOut → inventoryStatus in the Input pane of the BPEL Mapper.
    3. From the BPEL Mapper toolbar's Boolean menu, select and drag Logical True to the Mapping pane. Map the outbound Boolean node of the Logical True function box to inventoryStatus under Variables → IsInventoryAvailableOut → inventoryStatus in the Input pane of the BPEL Mapper.
    4. From the BPEL Mapper toolbar's String menu, select String Literal. A String Literal function box appears in the Mapping pane. Enter available, as the String Literal value.
    5. Map the outbound available node of the String Literal function box to inventoryStatusMessage, under Variables → IsInventoryAvailableOut → inventoryStatus in the Input pane of the BPEL Mapper.
