|Special visual representation for patterns? [message #3946]

Using BPEL there might be patterns (at the moment I am not shure if this
is the right word) for which a special representation in the editor is
helpful. A simple example might be the way the Oracle BPEL Designer works
with the "User Tasks". In the editor you only see a simple representation
of the user task. Actually the task is a sequence of standard BPEL
elements. So here a special combination of
elements is represented by a special representation. Such a technique
makes it possible to offer a user interface that hides the complexity of
the pattern but still achieves this with the BPEL standard elements (or
other extensions) without the need to add special activities (which in
turn require extensions in the runtime engines).
Are there any plans to support this kind of special representation? Would
it be interesting for the project at some point?
I am not sure if I made my point clear, so dont hesitate to ask.

I think patterns or macros are the right things to use in some cases.
The other one of course is processes or sub-processes (other BPEL
I'll be interested what use cases you have in mind. We have found them
(for the moment) to be most useful around invocation steps. That is:
This is precisely the place where locally scoped partner links are very
useful and where a chunk of code can be hidden behind a facade of what
appears a singular activity.
Just like in other languages, the usefulness of this concept does reach
