When you use Advanced Integration services in IBM® Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced, a copy of the EAR file for the implementation of each Advanced Integration service is created for each process app that uses it.
For large implementations, these EAR file copies take a lot of space. To avoid wasting space, deploy that implementation EAR file once as part of one dedicated process app, and have a very small facade Advanced Integration service that invokes the process app. This facade pattern is documented in Implementing the facade pattern using IBM Business Process Manager Advanced V7.5. This IBM developerWorks article also applies to IBM BPM V8.0 through V8.5.5.
This pattern is built into IBM BPM v8.5.6.
