After completing Part 2 of the tutorial, you will be able to:
Understand the design of the loan approval process.
Understand top-down vs. bottom-up design.
Use layout features of the Process Editor to optimize process display.
Review BPEL validation messages.
At the end of this tutorial part, you will understand the loan approval process we will build.
What is the Loan Approval Process?
The Loan Approval process starts by receiving a customer request for a loan amount. The risk assessment Web service is invoked to assess the request. If the loan is small and the customer is low risk, the loan is approved. If the customer is high risk, the loan is denied. If the customer needs further review or the loan amount is for $10,000 or more, the request is sent to the approver Web service. The customer receives feedback from the assessor or approver.
A top-down design would begin by adding activities to the Process Editor without adding any valid attributes to them; for example:
This part of the tutorial familiarizes you with the Process Editor, demonstrating features you can use to create a top-down design. You will not create a complete top-down design.
