Skinning BPM Worklist & Humantasks

In this post I will describe how to create a custom skin and how to apply this skin to the BPM Worklist and the accessory humantasks.

Before I start explaining how to do this, I will first explain the relation between the worklist and humantasks. The BPM WorklistApp is a ‘stand-alone’ application that is deployed on the WebLogic Application Server. The same is true for the different Humantask projects. This means the Humantask projects are also deployed as ‘stand-alone’ application on the WebLogic Application Server. Every application is using a skin on it’s one. Using a custum skin means you have to apply the skin to every application separately.

I will first describe how to create a Custom skin and how to apply it to the BPM worklist.  After that I will describe how to re-use this skin in the separate Humantask projects.

An advanced Email component for the SOA suite

In my previous post I described how to send an email with attachment from Oracle BPEL (Sending an email with attachment from Oracle BPEL). This post described a rather simple approach to send emails. In this post I will describe an advanced email component as an alternative.

In the ‘simple’ approach the used variables of the email activity are a combination of static and dynamic parts. Static in the way that it often contains a default subject and/or body. Optionally extended with the content of BPEL variables (dynamic). Changes in the static parts result in a redeployment of the composite. Especially in the subject and body part this happens quite often.
