Setting Up the Embedded Process Server

The Process Server consists of the server engine running under Apache Tomcat. Tomcat is the servlet container that is used in the official reference implementation for the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies.
When you create a BPEL process and its deployment descriptor, you can deploy process resources directly to a running server. This allows you to execute and remotely debug your processes.
To set up the server:
  1. 1. Select the Servers view in the lower right of the workspace.
  2. 2. Right-mouse click within the Servers view and select New > Server.
  3. 3. In the Server type list, select Process Server, and select Next.
  4. 4. If the default HTTP and connector ports are already in use on your computer, you can change them on the Ports page and then click Finish.
The Console shows the Tomcat start-up activity. At the end of start-up, you'll see a "server started" message for Tomcat.
To start the server:
After Tomcat is started, select the Start the Server icon in the Servers view for the Process Server, as shown.
To view the Process Console, select the Process Console icon in the Process Developer toolbar.
You can also view the console in a browser. Do this be going to the Console's URL. The default URL is http://localhost:8080/activevos.
