An activity is a rule that corresponds in many ways to a traditional, procedural program in any programming language. Application designers who have programming experience often find activity rules in Pega easy to learn and understand.
Reference a specific instruction, known as a method, in each step as you use activity rules. Methods allow developers to manage activities efficiently.
Building and Testing Activities
Activity rules are similar to programs in traditional programming languages as they contain a sequence of procedural, atomic steps that are by default executed top down, can perform calculations, can retrieve, update and save data, call other activities, and contain loops or iterations.
