Step 1: Create a Receive activity

A BPEL process begins by receiving an input message. This means a top-down design would start with either a Receive or a Pick activity, since they are structured to receive data from a business partner's Web service.
  1. If the
    tutorial.bpel
    file that you created in Part 1 is not open, open it in the Process Editor.
  2. If Cheat Sheets view is open, close it to make more room.
  3. Click the
    Show Palette
    arrow.
  4. From the
    Catch Event
    palette, drag a Message icon to the canvas.
    The activity is labeled with Message.
  5. Make sure that the message is selected. A selection box encloses it. When it is selected, the Properties view displays Receive attributes.
  6. To make the activity name more meaningful, do one of the following:
    • Click on the activity label Message and type in
      Receive Customer Request for Loan Amount
      .
    • In Properties view, type the following in the Activity Name field,
      Receive Customer Request for Loan Amount
      .
Here's what your activity should look like.
