Error: “Error(81): There is not an activity (receive/pick) to start the process”
Fix: Check the “Create Instance” checkbox on your Receive or Pick activity.
When do you see these errors?
When you create a BPEL process and remove the default Receive/Reply components to receive/pick events from a queue or an FTP adapter for example.
For example: I have a BPEL flow below with an FTP adapter which receives a file and calls out to a Java/Spring Bean (to parse the file etc)
