Selecting Simulation Paths and Properties

Selecting Simulation Paths and Properties

Add an endpoint reference address to simulate with.
You can modify certain BPEL elements to cause different simulation events to occur.
For example, you can change a data value in a receive message variable to cause a link transition to be true or false. You can also change sample data values for output and fault messages.
Similarly, you can update the value of correlation properties, if needed, and also update the address information for a partner link.
The following table lists the simulation property for each BPEL element that you can modify.
Activity
Simulation Property
Description
Receive
Input Message
Input attachments
Set the instance data for the simulated message to receive
Pick
Execute
Select the onMessage or onAlarm branch to execute for simulation. You must select an option before you simulate a Pick.
onMessage branch of pick or onEvent Event Handler
Input Message
Set the instance data for the simulated message to receive
Invoke
Output Message
Output attachments
Set the instance data for the simulated message to return
 
Result
Set the result of the output message to Normal or Fault
 
Fault Name
When the Result is set to Fault, you can select a Fault Name from the list. Fault names are defined in the associated WSDL file.
 
Fault Message
Fault Attachments
Set the instance data for the simulated Fault message.
 
Subprocess
Wait
Wait in Seconds
Actual wait time in seconds for simulation. The activity wait time can be longer than you want to wait during simulation. This is a way to shorten that time.
Partner Link
My Role and Partner Role
Endpoint reference address that is used in a dynamic assignment within a Copy operation
The following table lists the execution property for each BPEL element that you can modify. Note that the Execution properties are only available during simulation or remote debugging and do not normally appear in the Properties view.
Element
Execution Property
Description
Correlation Set
Correlation Set Data
Update the current value of the correlation property
Partner link
Address
Add or update address information for the partner link
For details on scenarios using correlation sets, see Process Exception Management.
