Process Developer Preferences

Process Developer Preferences

You can set default preferences for all processes, and then override a preference for individual processes.
To set Process Developer preferences, select
Window
Preferences
Process Developer
.
Preferences on the main page include:
Default settings for new process files:
Target Namespace preamble
Every BPEL process needs a target namespace. Type in a default namespace preamble, if desired. You can change the namespace and add additional ones for each new process you create.
Expression Language (URI)
Process Developer supports a variety of expression languages. The default expression language is XPath 1.0. Two other expression languages are built-in. These are XQuery 1.0 and JavaScript 1.5. You can select any of these languages as the default. The default language refers to the expression language that is used (both for validation and simulation) for a given process when that process does not explicitly declare the expression language.
Select
Dialog (...)
to view the configured expression languages.
Suppress join failure
Enabled by default. For a description of this setting, see
Process Element and Properties
.
Abstract process
Create all new processes as abstract, as opposed to executable, processes. Disabled by default. For a description of this setting, see
Creating an Abstract Process
.
BPEL Version
Select the BPEL specification version to use when launching Process Developer and when creating new BPEL processes. The versions supported are WS-BPEL 2.0 (current version) or BPEL4WS 1.1. The version you select sets the correct menu items, palette, and other details for new processes. Any new process you create conforms to the version chosen. Any process you open conforms to the correct BPEL version.
BPEL Extensions
Create XPath
A Process Developer extension for WS-BPEL 2.0 processes. For a description of this setting, see
Using the Process Developer Create XPath Extension
. To use this setting during simulation of BPEL4WS 1.1 processes, see
Simulation Preferences
.
Disable Selection Failure
A Process Developer extension for WS-BPEL 2.0 processes. For a description of this setting, see
Using the Process Developer Disable Selection Failure Fault Extension
. To use this setting during simulation of BPEL4WS 1.1 processes, see
Simulation Preferences
.
Links are Transitions
A Process Developer extension for WS-BPEL 2.0 processes. Allows links that target completed activities. See
Process Developer Extension for Links
.
Add object option
Launch primary property dialog after add
In Outline view, you can right mouse click on a node, such as Imports, Partner Links, or Variables and add a new item. If you enable this option, you can right mouse click on the item to edit the primary property.
You can disable this option if you prefer to edit all the properties (not just the primary property) in the Properties view.
New deployment options
Addressing Version
The default WS Addressing specification is W3C 1.0. This specification is referenced in the preamble of a new Process Deployment Descriptor file.
You can select one of the earlier specifications if applicable for your new deployment descriptors.
These settings take effect the next time you start Process Developer. You can set additional preferences for the following:
  • BUnit Preference
  • Cache and Timeout Preference
  • Colors and Fonts Preferences
  • Contribution Preference
  • Layout Preferences
  • Relationships View Preferences
  • Identity Chooser Preference
  • Remote Debugging Preferences
  • Simulation Preferences
  • Tasks and Problems Preferences
  • Editing HTML in Process Central Forms
