Adding Comments to a Process

Adding Comments to a Process

Process Developer offers two ways to add annotations to a process: comments and documentation.
Comments are useful for design-time annotations because you can add tasks and to do items to them. They appear as HTML-formatted comments in the BPEL source code. You can also add a documentation element to a BPEL process, activity, and links. For details, see
Adding Documentation to a Process
.
You can add a comment to any element of the process, such as an activity, link, variable, or the process itself.
  1. Select an item from the Outline view or the Process Editor canvas. For example:
    • Select Process or a partner link, variable, or copy operation from the Outline view
    • Select an activity or link on the Process Editor canvas
  2. In the Properties view, at the end of the
    Comment
    row, click
    Dialog
    .
  3. Type in a comment in the Comment dialog and click
    OK
    .
    Tip:
    You can add a Task tag to the beginning of the comment and the comment appears in
    Tasks
    view. For details, see
    Tasks and Problems Preferences
    .
The comments for activities and links appear when your mouse hovers over them on the Process Editor canvas, as shown.
Comments appear as formatted tags in the Source view of your process.
If you want to add a comment about a namespace, add the comment to the process itself.
