Configuring BP Server : Publishing BP Server applications

Publishing BP Server applications

You must publish a BP Server application before it can be used. This involves using the Administration module of Business Process Portal or issuing commands and/or macros in BP Server Admin.
Perform the following:
1. Create the process using the Business process template XML file.
This is done by the Business Process Server Application Developer using OpenEdge. For more information refer to OpenEdge Getting Started: Developing BPM Applications with Developer Studio.
2. Install the process.
This step validates the process definition. If there is any problem in the process definition, for example, or if the flow of the process is not correct, then you can see either warnings or error messages.
3. Create and activate a process instance.
This starts an instance of the process.
Note: The Business Process Server administrator completes the first two steps and Business Process Server end-users generally perform the final step.
* Understanding the process flow
* Suspending the BP Server
