7.16. Configuring the ESB Action Handler

  1. Attach the EsbActionHandler to a node to call an action when that node is entered. When the EsbActionHandler is executed, the node waits for a transition signal (normally sent by the JBossESB callback service).
  2. Configure as follows:
    <action name="create_new_process_instance" 
      class="org.jboss.soa.esb.services.jbpm.actions.BpmProcessor">
    
      <property name="command" value="StartProcessInstanceCommand" />
      <property name="process-definition-name" value="processDefinition2"/>
      <property name="actor" value="FrankSinatra"/>                                                 
      
      <property name="esbToBpmVars">
      <!-- esb-name maps to getBody().get("eVar1") -->
        <mapping esb="eVar1" bpm="counter" default="45" />
        <mapping esb="BODY_CONTENT" bpm="theBody" />
      </property>             
    
    </action>
