Completing Design of a SOA Composite Application

This section provides an overview of how to complete design of your SOA composite application and deploy the application.

  1. Design the remaining contents of your SOA composite application. For example:
    1. Connect the BPEL process to the adapter. For this example, the BPEL process is connected to the adapter as an external reference.

    2. Design the contents of the BPEL process. For example:
      1. Double-click the BPEL process.

      2. Add and configure an invoke activity to invoke the adapter.

      3. Add and configure assign activities to copy the contents of one variable to another when sending and receiving messages to and from the adapter.

      4. Add and configure other activities, as appropriate.

        When complete, view the SOA composite application in the SOA Composite Editor.Description of GUID-B31E9F17-1FDB-45FF-96C5-6E8B12CEEB75-default.png follows

  2. Deploy the SOA composite application:
    1. In the navigator, right-click the project and select Deploy > project_name.
    2. Follow the steps in the deployment wizard to deploy the SOA composite application to the application server.
