About this tutorial
This tutorial shows you how to create a simple top-down process in IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced V7.5. In a typical top-down process scenario, a Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) business process created in IBM Process Designer (hereafter called Process Designer) invokes a Service Component Architecture (SCA) based service that is created in IBM Integration Designer (hereafter called Integration Designer).
This tutorial is the first of a 4-part tutorial series that describes orchestration scenarios in IBM BPM Advanced V7.5. The four scenarios are:
- Straight through processing
- Straight through processing with exception
In this tutorial, you will learn how to:
- Create a business process using Process Designer.
- Create a service using Integration Designer.
- Run the business process to invoke that service.
This tutorial has three parts:
- In Part 1, you work with Process Designer to create a process application containing a Business Process Definition (BPD).
- In Part 2, you work with Integration Designer to implement an Advanced Integration Service in the Process Application.
- In Part 3, you use Process Designer to run the Business Process Definition, which in turn invokes the Advanced Integration Service.
You need to be familiar with business processes.
- IBM BPM Advanced V7.5 Process Center
- IBM Process Designer V7.5 (capable of communicating with Process Center)
- IBM Integration Designer V7.5 (capable of communicating with Process Center)
