Hi HimagiriV,

One way to achieve what you ask is by using the Call External Method activity, which basically invokes a method of some outer-world (non workflow) object with a specified parameter. Although it may sound simple, the implementation requires that you go through some steps. These steps however, are pretty straightforward.
