Subject [jira] Updated: (ODE-565) Adding web based BPEL debugging support
Date Sat, 04 Apr 2009 06:10:12 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ODE-565?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Denis Weerasiri updated ODE-565:

    Attachment: ODE-565_2.patch

This patch provides functionalities like adding GlobalActivityBreakpoints to processes and
step through for suspended instances at the break points. 
Used 1.x branch
Didn't write any test cases but tested the "adding GlobalActivityBreakpoints" and "step through"
using an axis2 client and REST calls.
But still as I examined, though the step through functionality is working it didn't give a
respond to the user after the step through process is completed. (i.e. Though the org.apache.ode.bpel.engine.BpelManagementFacadeImpl#step
operation is completed , it can't be assured that actual process instance have reached to
the next break point or completed the whole business process.)So upto now there is no way
of assuring whether the step through process is completed except observing the the particular
instance through the Instance management API.

better ideas are more than welcome. 

Best Regards,
Denis Weerasiri

> In order to run a business process successfully in ODE, it is a must to verify and debug
its BPEL process model before deploying it in Apache ODE. So exposing the process debugging
functionality as a web services such that a user can remotely debug a process and adding a
graphical monitoring console allows for setting breakpoints and to monitor the run time details
of that process will increase the usability as well as popularity of the work-flow engine
we are concerning. Currently though the debugging functionality is included in Apache ODE,
it's not really been tested for the current Apache ODE and it's not exposed as a web service.
> Web based debugging support for Apache ODE is a project aimed at exposing the debugging
functionality as a web service and adding an AJAX based monitoring console to which consist
of a graphical representation of a particular business process, allows for setting breakpoints
to activities and allows for monitoring that process being debugged.
> This will enable users to gain full advantage of the ODE, by reducing design time and
the testing time during the process development by allowing them to remotely debug a business
process, set breakpoints to process activities, modify variables and to monitor the run rime
variable information.
