In this straight through processing scenario, you did all the work using Integration Designer. You created a project library to store all the resources. You then created the interfaces, stored them in the library, and made sure that it was added as a dependency to the module that was created next. You created a simple BPEL process flow, assembled all the components together, and finally deployed and tested the process application. No matter how simple or complicated the BPEL process, the entire microflow process runs as a single transaction. The tutorial demonstrated the versatility of Integration Designer and some of the nuances of a BPEL process, such as interfaces and partners.
In the final installment of the orchestration scenarios, we will describe a variation of this scenario by adding an exception that is to be handled by humans.
The authors would like to thank Srikanth Ganesan for his review of the tutorial.
