ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks supports plug-ins. When you install a plug-in, activities for the plug-in become available in the TIBCO Designer interface. You can add the plug-in activities to the business process you are designing, and integrate them with the process flow. At runtime, the plug-in activities are executed as part of the ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks process execution.
The TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Plug-in for Facebook is unique in its powerful integration capabilities, and also unique in its dependency on another company's product. Because the plug-in uses the public APIof the platform, in this case, the Facebook Graph API, any open issues that have been reported against the third-party API result in problems with the plug-in. If Facebook makes changes to their public API, theactivities functionality might become limited or might change.
Because the information about the activities is easy to extract from the Facebook Developer documentation, this manual's focus is on an overview of each activity's tab. The manual also includes a typical example scenario for each activity. For example, the Graph Query example scenario queries the feed for a user you specify.
