Receiving event throws

Processes receive events to react to events when they are thrown. Event receives are activities that you add to the process diagram of long-lived processes. Event receives react to event throws during the process that they belong to is executing.
Note: Event receives cannot be added to short-lived processes.

Event receives appear as icons on the process diagram. Event receives can have routes that begin or terminate at the event in the same way that operations do. When a route is followed to the event receive, the event receive waits for an event to be thrown. The process continues only after the event is received and acted on according to the event filters that are configured on it. Event filters define the criteria to which your event receive responds. For example, you can configure your event to respond only when the event message data for field exceeds a value.

Event receives can receive event throws in another process or application, in the same process, or in an Adobe Flex application that uses the event framework.
