ONEWEB provides Process Designer tool to develop and execute business processes in an application. The Process Designer tool also provides some nodes to integrate with other systems during a business process flow. The functionality of the node tasks are very similar to the node tasks in Microflow Designer tool.

Database Node

Process Designer provides Database node tasks to communicate with the database, which may be useful if you want to take some of the values from the database during a process. Database node has two types of connection - JNDI and JDBC.


There are four types of commands.

  1. Select: Query to retrieve desired value from the database. You can define the field and table via SQL Command.
  2. Insert: Insert the desired value into the database.
  3. Update: Update values in the database via SQL Command.
  4. Delete: Delete values from the database via SQL Command.


Sub Process Node

In a large process, one process can have a subroutine or another process within. We can collapse the flow as a single flow by means of a Sub process node.



Web Service Node

Web Services allow access to information from different applications. Process Designer provides a Web Service Task for consuming SOAP and REST services. Developer just needs to configure the specifications of the service and ONEWEB will generate the methods and data structures to call the Service.


       


File Read Node

Process Designer supports reading of Microsoft Excel, Delimited files, XML files or Fixed Width files. The File Read Task can be used for creating data models and populating it with data from files. Process Designer can read file from Files System, but also supports reading through FTP, SFTP and FTPS. In addition to reading files during a process, Process Designer can also trigger a process to start based on the availability of a file by using the File Input Node.
