1 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Oracle Workflow Cartridge Jason Moody Into Networks (617)

2 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Agenda zOverview zProcess Modeling yExamples (Content Workflow) zArchitecture zUsers View zExtending Oracle Workflow Cartridge zWorkflow Versioning

3 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Overview zPredictability. zEliminates the Excel Spreadsheet phenomenon. zOracle Workflow allows your customers to modify your product without writing code.

4 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Practical Considerations zWorkflow is tougher (than data modeling). zProcess modeling must be done up front. zLong testing periods.

5 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Project Timeline zMedium Project (with 4-5 processes) zDesign Phase: 4-6 weeks zImplementation: 4 weeks zTesting: 4 weeks zUser Acceptance: 2 weeks z(Expect 4 months just for workflow)

6 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Design Phase zProcess Modeling yVisio yDesigner zERD zData Dictonary Visio Diagram

7 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Example: Content Workflow System zInto Networks allows software on-demand yNo Download or installation of titles. zDescription: Content acquisition for software titles including: yAssets (Screen shots) yEncoding information yTitle Notes

8 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Content Workflow (Cont.) zWorkflow y2 processes y14 notifications zData Entry y40+ forms

9 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Architecture zOracle Database zApplication Server yOracle Application Server yWebdb zWorkflow Builder z

10 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Architecture zRoles yDatabase Roles zNotifications (End User Client) yWeb Monitor yClient Server (Apps Version) zBusiness Logic (PL/SQL Blocks) zProcesses (Workflow Builder)

11 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Architecture

12 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Roles zWorkflow views show database roles. yExample: Wf_users

13 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Notifications

14 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Business Logic CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE BODY OWF_ADM.WF_AREPA as procedure arepa_startprocess (p_itemkey in varchar2) is v_wf_process varchar2(30); v_item_type varchar2(30); v_owner varchar2(30); begin v_wf_process := 'P_OVERVIEW'; v_item_type := 'AREPA'; v_owner := 'OWF_ADM'; wf_engine.createprocess ( itemtype => v_item_type, itemkey => p_itemkey, process => v_wf_process );

16 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Workflow Process

17 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Extending Oracle Workflow zApplication Servers zManagement Reporting zPortal zComments

18 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Adding Cold Fusion zIntegrated Cold Fusion yRapid Application Development yData Entry Screens zSingle Login (OAS manages logins)

19 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Reporting Problems zNeed to provide lots of information yWorkflow and Application Specific zNo Out of Box Management Reports zTry to use existing reports instead of creating new. zEspecially with workflow: People want to see the same data multiple ways.

20 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Management Reporting zNo Out of Box Management Reports zCreated custom approach vs. Discoverer

23 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Title Detail Page

24 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Comments zPeople want to communicate problems to others. yEnd to End Systems zFuture versions of workflow may have this functionality.

25 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Comments - Data Entry

26 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Comments - Report

27 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Workflow Versioning zReal World Constraints of Workflow zProcess changes yItems finish with the version they start with. yCannot make changes to process structure on the fly. zCan change notifications (messages) users see.

28 Northeast Oracle Users Group (4/12/2000) Workflow Thoughts zDo up front process design work. yProblem to change process later zDesign reporting piece as part of original project. zMake Notifications (Messages) single point of contact. zThe first project is intense.
