In this section, we walk through about how to call a Java method in BPEL process 2.0.


I have created a Java class in my SOA project as shown below. The Ā class name is FirstJava.java; it has a single method getString which returns a string

Follow the steps If you want to add a jar file instead of creating Java classes inside the SOA project

1. Export your existing Java project into a Jar file

2. place the jar file inside <SOA_PROJECT_HOME>\SOA\SCA-INF\lib (Example: C:\JDeveloper\mywork\SOAApplication\Project\SOA\SCA-INF\lib)

3. Right-click the SOA project >> Click Properties >> Select Libraries and Classpath >> Click button Add Jar/Directory >> Add the jar file from the SCA_INF\lib directory

4. Follow the remaining screenshots as presented above expect the first image

    Thanks for the wonderful article.

    I am facing one difficulty in importing Standard Java Classes.

    If I have to use File Class (java.io.File), then even after putting an import statement at the start of the BPEL like

    I still need to refer the File Class in Embedded java code by giving the entire package structure like

    java.io.FileOutputStream fos = new java.io.FileOutputStream(new java.io.File(“Test.txt”));

    If I just write the above statement as

    FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream(new File(“Test.txt”));

    Then I get error during build.

    Can you please suggest, what is going wrong.
