To build an opaque activity:
  1. 1. Ensure that your BPEL process references a namespace for an abstract process. By default, a BPEL process is executable. See Tips for Working with Abstract Processes.
  2. 2. From the Activity palette, drag an opaque to the Process Editor canvas.
  3. 3. Add the activity to an appropriate container, if desired, or link another activity to it.
The following illustration shows an example of using an opaque activity.
