Before you start
This series is for novices who want high-level overviews of various IBM software products. The modules are designed to introduce the products, and draw your interest for further exploration. The exercises only cover the basic concepts, but are enough to get you started.
This tutorial will provide an introduction to WebSphere Integration Developer. You'll learn more about the features and capabilities of this product by using it to complete three hands-on tasks. In the first, you'll create and deploy a simple business process; in the second, you'll create and deploy a business rule that contains several if-then rules; and in the third, you'll expand the rule you created in the second task with a new business process.
After completing this tutorial, you should understand the basic functions of WebSphere Integration Developer, and understand how to use it to create business rules and business processes.
This tutorial is for application designers with at least a basic familiarity with the Eclipse development environment.
To run the examples in this tutorial, you need to install IBM WebSphere Integration Developer v6.0.1.
If this is your first encounter with a developerWorks tutorial that includes demos, here are a few things you might want to know:
- Demos are an optional way to see the same steps described in the tutorial. To see an animated demo, click the Show me link. The demo opens in a new browser window.
- Each demo contains a navigation bar at the bottom of the screen. Use the navigation bar to to pause, exit, rewind, or fast forward portions of the demo.
- The demos are 800 x 600 pixels. If this is the maximum resolution of your screen or if your resolution is lower than this, you will have to scroll to see some areas of the demo.
