Notify Regular Activity Invoke Process Regular Activity ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks 6 migration not supported In ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks 5.x, Notify, Receive Notification, and Wait activities are used for inter-process communication.

In ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks 6.x, a process now supports interface with multiple operations. These operations can be used for inter-process communication.

ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks 6.x Migration Tool currently does not migrate Notification Configuration shared resource, Notify, Receive Notification, and Wait constructs to ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks 6.x. After migrating the ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks 5.x project, you can manually add operations to processes that need to receive notification or wait for notification. The Notify activity is then replaced by the Invoke Process.

When the Notify or Receive Notification and Wait activities are used for multiple processes waiting to receive notification, you can use a JMS transport with topic to achieve the same publish/subscribe pattern.
