Part Number B10284-02
The Oracle Workflow Event Manager lets you register interesting business events that may occur in your applications, the systems among which events will be communicated, named communication agents within those systems, and subscriptions indicating that an event is significant to a particular system. You can use the Event Manager web pages to define and maintain these events, systems, agents, and subscriptions.
Note: You must have workflow administrator privileges to access the Event Manager web pages.
You can use the Workflow XML Loader to upload and download XML definitions for Business Event System objects between a database and a flat file. See: Using the Workflow XML Loader, Oracle Workflow Administrator's Guide.
When an event is raised by a local application or received from a local or external system, the Event Manager executes any subscriptions to that event. Depending on the action defined in the subscription, the Event Manager may call custom code, send the event information to a workflow process, or send the event information to an agent.
After you finish setting up the Business Event System, you can use the Event Manager to raise events manually, sign up systems to receive business events from each other, synchronize systems with each other, and review your local queues. You can test your setup using Workflow Agent Ping/Acknowledge.
Note: For information about the version of the Event Manager in the Oracle Applications Framework user interface format, currently available with the version of Oracle Workflow embedded in Oracle Applications, see: Event Manager for Oracle Applications.
