SOA Suite 12c: Property window for inspecting and editing BPEL activities

In 12c, the property inspector has been extended to also support editing the properties of BPEL activities. When the property inspector window is available, it will synchronize with the currently selected activity in the BPEL editor.

The property inspector is opened using the top menu action: Windows | Properties.
