Workflow Process Testing with a Server Component You cannot use the Process Simulator to test a workflow process that involves a server component, such as Workflow Process Manager, Server Request Broker, Assignment Manager, or Communications Server. If a workflow process that involves a server component is run in the Process Simulator, then incorrect behavior results. To test a workflow that involves a server component, the workflow must be deployed to the run-time environment and tested by using the application server. For example, if you must test a workflow process that calls Siebel Assignment Manager, then deploy the workflow to the run-time environment. You export the workflow from Siebel Tools and import it to the Siebel client. Then you test the workflow in real time with the working server components. Starting a Workflow Process with the Process Simulator Of the various ways to start a workflow process, starting a workflow from the Process Simulator is an easy way to test and debug a workflow. You can debug steps of the workflow as you define them in Siebel Tools, where the Process Designer and the Process Simulator both reside.

Testing a Workflow Process About the Testing Tools Siebel Business Process Framework: Workflow Guide Version 8.1, Rev A 199 When the workflow process is run from the Process Simulator, it runs in the Application Object Manager (AOM). The workflow can be started in the Application Object Manager or in the Workflow Process Manager server session, depending on specific parameters. Because some workflows that can run in the Workflow Process Manager server session might not be able to run in the application object manager, it is possible that every workflow cannot be simulated. Other ways to start a workflow process involve starting the workflow outside of Siebel Workflow. For more information, see “Starting a Workflow Process” on page 143 . For information about starting a workflow from a server component, see Overview: Siebel Enterprise Application Integration and Siebel eMail Response Administration Guide . Preparing the Simulator for Use with a Script You can use the Process Simulator with a workflow process that references a business service or business component that contains a script. However, if that script contains a breakpoint, and if the Arguments field in the Siebel Tools debug configuration contains /h, then the Simulator might not perform as expected. A breakpoint is a marker on a line of Basic code that tells Basic to suspend execution at that line so that the state of the program can be examined by using the Siebel Debugger. The /h argument directs the Siebel debugger to open the Watch window. To prepare the simulator for use with a script 1 Remove every breakpoint from the script on a business service or a business component that is referenced by the workflow process.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
