Using Messages in Executable BPMN

Blog: Method & Style (Bruce Silver)

In BPMN, the most common way information is provided to a process from an external source is via a message. Incoming messages are indicated in the diagram by a dashed arrow connector called a message flow, with its tail on a black-box pool or a message node in another process pool and its arrow on a message node in the receiving process, either an activity or message event. In our BPMN Method and Style training, which focuses on non-executable processes, we discuss at length the semantics and usage patterns of messages and message events.
