Persistent structures : Infopads


BPM Events rules can generate data—they create, update and externalize dynamic reports as a result of their monitoring activity. These reports are stored in memory data structures called infopads. Infopads can store various kinds of data, other than application reports.
Infopads store any type of global data that the rules may use (that is, write or read), including:
*Application parameters (that is, a list of e-mail addresses of persons to notify).
*Rule parameters (that is, the critical threshold for a resource load).
*A dynamic business report that is modified based on new events.
* Defining Infopads, cells, and slots
* Creating infopads
* Using infopads
