SBM Orchestration Guide → Raising External Events → Defining an Event Definition
An event definition used in SBM defines events from an application workflow. You can create your own custom event definition for generating external events.
An event definition is a WSDL file that redeclares the ALFServiceFlow service, making it specific to your event source. The process involves creating a specialized event definition schema derived from the ALF event base schema. The event definition specifies custom, tool-specific types and events. It also defines the orchestration workflow (declared as a service flow service) that handles these events.
Event Definition Messaging and Schema
Event definitions must use RPC/literal messaging and must be created following the definitions in ALFEventManager?wsdl.
The ALF event base schema from which you create the derived schema for your event definition is defined in ALFEventBase_1.xsd. This schema is common to all event services and is included by reference in your event definition.
