Starting and Ending Simulation of a BPEL Process

Starting and Ending Simulation of a BPEL Process

To simulate your process:
  1. Open your BPEL file.
  2. Click your mouse in the Process Editor canvas to activate the editor toolbar.
  3. Select the
    Simulate Process
    icon on the toolbar, as shown.
    The simulation target stops at the first activity in the process and suspends execution. If you have not added sample data you are prompted to add it.
  4. In the Debug view, do one of the following:
    • Click the
      Resume
      icon to run to completion or to a breakpoint
    • Click the
      Step Over
      icon (F6 key) to step to the next activity or breakpoint
    • Click the
      Step Into
      icon (F5 key) to step into a container such as a while, if, or for each
As the process executes, the following events occur:
  • Each activity is highlighted as it prepares to execute
  • If necessary, messages appear to instruct you to add missing sample data
  • In Process Variables view, sample data is cleared at the beginning of simulation and then is displayed as the corresponding activities execute
  • The Console view shows simulation events
  • The Outline view shows execution of all activities, some of which can be hidden on the canvas
  • If an error occurs, an error message pops up, the simulation terminates, and the activity is marked with an X, as shown in the following illustration. For more information, see Inspecting Standard Faults During Simulation.
You can end a simulation thread by stepping to the end or by terminating it.
You can select
Terminate
from the context menu of the process's thread in the Debug view to terminate the simulation.
When a simulation terminates, the process diagram shows the simulation path. The illustration above shows both the path taken (highlighted) and not taken (grayed out).
