Oracle SOA Suite 11g: Manipulate the SCA composite name at design time

By default no composite name is set when a SCA composite is executed. For runtime monitoring and tracking purposes it might be useful to set a custom name at design time for your SCA composite.  Especially, when the number of instances increases in production.
