Understanding BPEL Process Lifecycle

Understanding BPEL Process Lifecycle

A BPEL process instance has a beginning, middle, and end, which are all defined by activities. The process must begin with one of the following:
  • Receive activity
  • Pick activity (with an
    onMessage
    event)
  • Flow or Sequence activity containing one or more Receive or Pick activities
In a Receive or Pick, the
Create Instance
property must be set to
Yes
. The middle of the process consists of activities, running in sequence or concurrently.
The process instance ends in one of the following ways:
  • An activity defines that the process is complete
  • A fault reaches a process scope, and the process exits
