The Participants view is the key starting point for developing a BPEL process. It guides you to provide the key ingredients for a process: the roles that the process and partner services play and the interface for each role. Further, once you define an interface, you can drag its operation to the Process Editor canvas to create process activities. For example, a receive activity is created from the interface operation associated with a process service consumer.
The following illustration shows an example of participants and their interfaces:
The Participants view is empty unless a process is open. The view is process-based; that is, it shows participants only for the process in focus.
In this view, you can do the following (on-premises only):
Create new process and service interfaces. See
Creating a New Process Service Consumer Interface
Creating a New Partner Service Interface
Create new human task participants and their tasks for use in people activities.
Drag an operation (or task) to the Process Editor to create appropriate activities. See
Creating New Activities from the Participants View
