To Create a Process Definition from Top Down

1. To start Oracle Workflow Builder, double-click on the Oracle Workflow Builder icon located in the Application Development folder within the Oracle - <SID NAME> program group. If you are using Windows 98 or NT 4.0 or higher, you can also select the Oracle Workflow Builder icon from the appropriate program folder of the Start menu.
2. Use the Quick Start Wizard to create the framework for your new process definition. Specify the requested information for the new item type and new process activity. See: To Use the Quick Start Wizard.
3. A Process window appears, that shows a Start and an End activity node. Create your process diagram by defining new activity nodes to place between the Start and End nodes. See: To Define Nodes in a Process.
You may also use predefined standard activities associated with the Standard item type. See: Standard Activities: .
4. Model your process by drawing transitions between your activities. See: Diagramming a Process.
5. Save your work by choosing Save or Save As from the File menu. See: To Save Your Work.
Attention: When you save your work, Oracle Workflow automatically validates the process definition for any invalid or missing information and displays what it finds in a Workflow Error verification window. The Workflow Error window is non-modal, so you can keep it up on your screen while you go back to your process to correct the problems that are identified. You can also save your work as is, and fix the problems later. Use the Copy button to copy the information to the clipboard if you want to paste it into another document for later reference. If you save your work without correcting the problems, the Workflow Error window will appear when you open this process definition later.
