Pool

A BPMN 2.0 Pool represents a Participant in a Process and does not map to any specific BPEL 2.0 element. Enterprise Architect uses Pools to represent external Participants, with which the BPEL Process communicates. These are 'black box' pools i.e., they are abstract and do not expose any details ( they do not contain any BPMN 2.0 elements inside them ).

BPEL Properties:

  • Double-click on the Pool in the BPEL diagram
  • Right-click on the Pool in the BPEL diagram ( or the Project Browser ) and select the following context menu : BPEL | BPEL 2.0 Properties

Notes:

  • A BPEL Process should not contain a Pool as its child element.
  • A BPEL diagram under a BPEL Process contains an implicit Pool - so it is invalid to add a Pool in this BPEL diagram to represent the BPEL Process.
  • Pool cannot have any incoming or outgoing Sequence Flow connectors - it can have only incoming or outgoing Message Flow connectors.
