Before you start
Many customers model their business processes with the ARIS SOA Architect tool and transform their Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) process manually into WebSphere Integration Developer (hereafter called Integration Developer) to implement business processes. We will describe the business-driven development (BDD) with the ARIS2WebSphere methodology. This methodology automatically generates the BPEL process from ARIS SOA Architect and imports this into WebSphere Integration Developer. We will also describe best practices for using the methodology.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to configure your modeling and development tools and how to install the provided script for ARIS SOA Architect as well as the provided plugin for Integration Developer (see the Downloads section of the tutorial). We will lead you through the modeling, exporting, importing, and development tasks of the ARIS2WebSphere method. We will also cover best practices, open issues, and workarounds.
You should have basic knowledge of ARIS SOA Architect and Integration Developer. The tutorial is intended for business analysts and integration developers.
To install the provided script, IBM WID SOA Connectivity, you need ARIS SOA Architect V7.1.
Furthermore, we provide slightly different plugins for versions 6.2 and 7.0 of WebSphere Integration Developer.
This tutorial takes about 3 hours to complete.
