Service Definitions

A deployed process contains at least one My Role partner link, and a My Role partner link is assigned a service name in the Process Deployment Descriptor (PDD) file. The service name identifies the WSDL that the Process Server engine generates during deployment. The WSDL includes the messages, operations, service, and binding details for the Web Service exposed by the process’ My Role partner link.

In addition to this default service endpoint, Process Server provides several others, including REST, JSON, and XML. For details, see the Process Server topics of this help.

An example is a Retry Policy system service, which is a process deployed to tell the engine how many times to retry a non-communicating service. This type of process is not intended for outside consumption. For more information on unpublished services, see the Process Developer Help.
