Supplying and Inspecting Sample Variable Data During Simulation

Supplying and Inspecting Sample Variable Data During Simulation

Before beginning simulation, you must initialize certain input and output variables with sample data values. The idea is to simulate the actual data that a running process would normally receive and send. Namely, you add sample data values for the following variables:
  • Variable in the receive or onMessage activity that starts the process
  • Output variable in the invoke activities. This is the data sent back to the process from an invoked Web service.
  • OnEvent variable in an event handler
  • Fault variables that you want to simulate
Process Developer offers several ways for you to supply sample data values for process variables. When you simulate process execution, you can use different data values to test different execution paths in your process.
Add, load, and change sample data as follows:
Add sample data files for message data
In Participants view, you can view WSDL messages and then add one or more sample data files per message. One data file per message defines default values for the message parts. For a discussion of adding sample data, see Using Sample Data for WSDL Messages.
Select default values for message data
If you add multiple data files to messages, you can specify one file as the default. See Selecting a Default Sample Data File.
Change default values for process variables used in receive, invoke, onMessage, and onEvent activities
As you simulate execution of a process, you can override the default data values for input, output, and fault messages. For more information, see Setting up Sample Data Values for Input, Output, and Fault Messages.
Load sample data values to initialize process variables
For a specific BPEL process, you can type in data values or load a data file for each process variable. For more information, see Using Sample Data in Process Variables View.
During process simulation, you can view variable assignments. For more information, see Inspecting Process Variables during Simulation.
