Graphical Message Flow Viewer constructs visualizations of message flow and assists people to see things that were not obvious to them before. Even when data volumes are very large, patterns can be spotted quickly and easily.
The viewer shows you what messages a service instance (pipeline or orchestration) sent and received, and details such as the URL, port, and party used. You can also see which preceding service instances handled the messages coming into the service instance you are currently viewing. You can link back to these instances and see the messages coming into and going out of these instances. You can also see the subsequent service instances that received messages from the service instance you are currently viewing, and link forward to these instances to see the messages coming into and going out of these instances. In other words, you can walk through the entire path of an activation message through your business process.
Graphical Message Flow UI has two panels(Left & Right). The left panel area exhibits message flow viewer. The right panel exhibits a tab interface with three tabs(Properties, Context, Content). The viewer panel has three groups Receive Ports, Orchestrations and Send Ports. A service instance of type Receive/Send pipeline will be placed under receive / send ports. An Orchestration service instance will be placed under Orchestrations.
