Pinned topic Announce: Kolban's Book on IBM BPM

‏2011-12-05T17:41:22Z | book kolban

Folks,
I am delighted to announce that there is now a free book on IBM BPM available. This book contains all my written notes on using the product and related technologies. It is as-is and is not to be considered an official piece of documentation from IBM. Rather, it contains my practical experiences while learning and using the products. It may very well contain technical and factual errors and does not represent any explicit statements from IBM about content or future directions.

That all said, many have already found it useful and I hope you will too. The book will be refreshed monthly as a PDF.

I hope you find something useful with. Feedback, comments and areas to cover are very welcome.

The book can be found here:

    Wow! Thank You!

    I expect half the questions posted in these forums are answered somewhere in your book. It's like the missing manual for IBM BPM.

    Hi there,
    The web server on which the book is hosted is a GoDaddy server. Personally, I haven't seen it down myself. Every time I go and check on it, its up and available. I'm looking for a pattern as to when it may be "down". If you have trouble accessing it, let me know the time (and local time zone) when you see it unavailable.

    I am having 2 parallel activities(human tasks) both having radio buttons Accept & Reject.If both both activities send Accept then request is success.

    In order to get 2 radio button values i use simple join it is overiding with new value.

    Hi there,
    This thread is really about discussions on the topic of the PDF of notes on IBM BPM. Can I ask you to post a separate thread on individual technical questions about the product?

    Hi Neil,

    Thank you very much for this book. It is really excellent. Is there a way we can have your post made "sticky" as in mqseries.net? I believe this post should be at the top.

    Moderators - Could you please help?

    Hi there. Glad you are finding some value in the material, that was my hope. As for making the post sticky and at the top, Ive never seen such a post in any other IBM DeveloperWorks forum so it may not be technically possible.

    It's interesting you mention MQSeries.net. Have we met before? In the 90's my job was to be very technical for IBM but this time in the MQSeries (now WebSphere MQ) world. I tried to do a similar sort of thing as I am doing now for BPM but then for MQSeries ... had our paths crossed then or was it just coincidence that you mentioned MQ?

    Hi Kolban,

    Great job with your book!!! I have looked IBPM Kolban's Book Dec 2011 Version.

    We are still using WLE 7.2 though and seems like there was a version of this book which was released 01/01/2011 which was for 7.2. Where do I find the link for that book?

    Thanks,

    Neil,

    Great book. Thanks a lot for sharing. It is really helpful. Pretty descriptive.

    Some corrections for future releases. I was trying the Dojo examples in IBM BPM 7.5.0.1 and it didn't work as is (page 271) so I debugged and following changes are required i guess. Its working for me in IE 8.0

    Additions (from the lombardi wiki)
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="script/dojo/1.4.3/dijit/themes/soria/soria.css"/>
    <style type="text/css">
    body, html { font-family:helvetica,arial,sans-serif; font-size:90%; }
    </style>

    Modification (just the version change from 1.3.2 to 1.4.3)
    <style type="text/css">
    @import "script/dojo/1.4.3/dojox/grid/resources/Grid.css";
    @import "script/dojo/1.4.3/dojox/grid/resources/soriaGrid.css";

    Hope this helps

    Shashi,
    When I first started studying what was then the old Lombardi product which got renamed to IBM WLE and has now been consumed into IBM BPM ... the names of my notes/book had to keep changing. When I started writing my notes, my note taking started at WLE 7.2. When we moved to IBM BPM, I walked through the book and renamed most of the WLE references to IBM BPM (IBPM). Other than that, the content remains the same (or very similar). I can't (off the top of my head) remember any substantive changes that would invalidate even the current IBPM 7.5.1 material for WLE 7.2. I would suggest that we not go with the old version and keep plugging along with the 7.5.1 version of the book. Even though it may say 7.5.1 and have 7.5.1 screen shots, the vast majority is still pertinent.

    Manish,
    nice!! - Thank you SOO much for that. When I did my tests it was on an earlier release which had an earlier version of Dojo ... your catch and explanation were perfect and I have changed the source document to reflect the updates. I use IBM Lotus Symphony (not Microsoft Word) for the document (just fyi). The changes will be present in the Feb 2012 release.

    I sure do appreciate feedback for corrections. My goal was to help folks and not make things worse by sharing knowledge that is either wrong or out of date ... so catches of "That didn't work!!" get high priority attention from me.

    Hi Neil,

    The book is indeed very useful. Though you are mentioning that some part needs update after release of IBPM v7.5, but I found majority are still very much relevant.

    The reason I am writing is:
    one of the link is not working. For the offline infocenter (page 57: 2012-01.pdf).

    https://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/iwm/web/reg/download.do?source=AW-0M5&S_PKG=0M5&lang=en_US&cp=UTF-8

    even the zip file mentioned: IBM-Help-Win32-341.zip is not available at IBM sites. I even tried google.

    Why I am looking for this offline infocenter is because, I need to travel sometime and I am offline. at those time I am not able to get the required help system with me.

    If the link has been shifted or if you know from anywhere I can get the zip file, that would be really great help.

    Thanks

    Hi Folks,
    Wow ... am dissapointed to report I am a week late on the February release. I was all set to release it but then had to travel to Scotland for an unexpected event and am only just back.

    But ... here we are ... The February release is now up. One of the major additions this month is a ton of stuff on ... Google Web Toolkit (GWT). Ive been working in that area with its relationship to IBPM and have been logging my notes in the book. Usual book bug fixes and other goodies also included. As always, hope y'all find something useful in there and lots more to come.

    Sukdeb,
    I found the following:

    http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg24031355

    This appears to show where one can get the IEHS which is the software for viewing the InfoCenter documents.

    And it appears the latest 7.5.1 docs can be obtained here:

    http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/dmndhelp/downloads/v7r5m1/localhelp_bpm751.zip

    Hope this works and will update the book in the next release.

    Hello,

    I have download the help file "localhelp_bpm751.zip" and I installed in my environtment, but the help only is in English. Is it possible to configurate this help in other languages, for example Spanish? If it is not possible, Is it possible to download another file with the helps in Spanish?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Rafa,
    This thread on the forum is really only for discussions on the PDF of that is being distributed as described in the first post of the thread. It feels like your question is a good but general question related to IBPM. Can I ask that you post your question in its own thread?

    Thanks for the kind words Bornik. Comments like this make my day. When IBM bought the Lombardi company, it took me a while to start looking at the new acquisition. My BPM heritage had been MQ Workflow (pre 2000), Interchange Server (2001), WBI Server Foundation (2004), WebSphere Process Server (2005). I found that the Teamworks product allowed me to use my old skills while at the same time allowed me to learn new ones. Now that both WPS and Lombardi are "dead" from a futures perspective and IBM has a single, integrated offering in the form of IBM BPM ... I am like a pig in poo in terms of all the new goodies to study, share and help others learn while they teach me at the same time.

    All going well, I hope to keep updating my PDF notes and make more videos and keep up with the forums.

    Hi there elango,
    With you now my friend. Unfortunately, I only have one install of the product on my machine and that is always kept at the latest and greatest code levels for demonstration purposes. What this means is that when I built the code that is on the web site, I built it using IBM BPM 7.5.1. Even if I could get my hands on a 7.5.0 environment, I think I would have to manually re-enter the solution (too much work) as it wouldn't import into a 7.5.0 environment (since it was built at 7.5.1). I'm afraid the 7.5.1 code is all I will be able to share.

    Sorry ... but I think we are stuck.

    Hi Rado,
    Sounds like a smart idea :-) ... However, I sure wouldn't read it end to end each time it comes out. There is a ton of content in it but the "editing" of that content is all over the place. As one month passes to the next, what I do is that whatever I am working on during that day, when the day is done, I go read about it in my own notes. If Ive learned something new, I add them to the notes. If I now considered the notes wrong or could be improved, I tinker with those notes. What I mean by this is that there is no structure to what I add or change ... it is all a function of what I work upon that day ... which in many cases is a function of what questions are hot in the forum. By and large we are now "polishing" the periphery. For example, during March I was studying WODM (JRules) and added sections on that into the notes. For the majority of us at this time, no great relationship to IBM BPM. Same with GWT.

    As an aside, playing with Unity Game programming in the evenings but won't add that to the book :-)

    What's the story with the deviantart link? I'm a big fan of that web site. Are you perhaps an artist there?

    Well, you could just write down 2-3 lines if there is some `major` update or something like that хаха

    About the deviantart link - these are my brother's works, which I am very proud of :)

    PS: Personaly, I wouldn't mind if you write down and 2-3 lines about Unity

    Hi Neil.

    Your book is fantastic. Thanks.

    I'm begining a project with IBPM and I need to do something. I have a process "A" which runs as updates a variable that represents a state. On the other hand I have a process "B" which is exposed as web service and should consult the value of the variable state of the process "A".

    ¿How could I access the process variable "A"?

    Hi folks,
    Got a little late with the May release of the book. Was at IBM's Impact 2012 conference in Las Vegas. A couple of nights in Las Vegas is nice but Saturday-Friday ... ouch ... too much of a good thing. The May release of the book is out and mostly cleanup as I correct errors and tweak. IBM announced the IBM BPM v8.0 release which I understand to be available later this month. As such, that should give me plenty to cover over the next few months.

    As always, latest version of the book is available for free download here:

    You are most welcome my friend and welcome to the forum. I am excited by the prospect of the V8 of the product as finally I will have some new material to cover. My biggest challenge has been trying to come up with things that other folks would like to see covered and I can only imagine V8 will contain lots :-)

    Marcello, Balu, Vignesh,
    Many thanks for the kind words my friends. It always makes my day to hear that there is some value in the writings. Ive been with customers for the last few weeks and am now just starting to study v8. I expect the majority of the new updates will be on using the new features contained within. Please be assured that my commitment to updates and monthly releases is still high so let us all look forward to more of the same to come.

    Hi folks,
    First of the month again so time for another drop. Ive been visiting customers most of the last 4 weeks so nothing too much new in this release. Ive spent a few days with v8 and am starting to work through the changes. This is giving me pause on what to do with pre v8 materials. For example, in v8, the whole Coach Designer and Process Portal technology has completely changed ... so the question becomes one of do I keep both in these notes or only the new v8 material? My current leaning is to remove the pre-v8 material and replace it with the v8 equivalents. This will make the book smaller and hence easier to perhaps find what you are looking for. The back-issues will still be around for those looking for pre-v8 materials.

    The v8 content should start to appear in a much more solid form in the July edition and beyond.

    I like the idea of keeping the Pre8 and post8 separated. I think that will be less confusing (and less work for you to have to preface stuff as pre8 and post8 if it is not applicable to both).

    But then the downside is that the pre8 stuff would no longer have any updates. But eventually everyone would theoretically be on 8 and would not have to look two places.

    Hi CBradley,
    The reality is that I have already re-imaged my machines to v8 and simply don't have a pre v8 environment installed anymore. All new information from me will be exclusively as determined on the v8 environment.

    Hi folks,
    I am pleased to release the July 2012 edition of the book. Mostly changes and reworks for v8 in this release but tons more to go. I am finding myself "troubled" by some of the dramatic changes in v8 from previous releases. Some of them appear to be revolutionary vs evolutionary. From a book content perspective, this is "challenging" as it means I need to rip and replace as opposed to update. The bottom line is that there are increasing sections which are relevant to pre v8 which have no relevance in v8 and since I haven't addressed those yet, there will be confusion for those reading it having never before seen pre v8 and will be looking for "things" which don't yet exist. Only time and patience will cure this I'm afraid.

    As always, hope you find something useful within and I plan on lots and lots more releases to come as I learn and study more.

    Vikash,
    By and large, I keep adding "stuff" and only occasionally take stuff away. If we went back in time to a version of the book back in the WLE 7.2 days, it might have less than 100 pages at that time :-)

    What this means is that there isn't a version of the book in existence which covered so much material but was focused at the 7.2 release.

    Thanks for the kind words. That is the best thing I could hear. Just delighted I could contribute to the community. Keep tuned to the forum, read the past Q&As and if you see something you can contribute to ... do it.

    Re: Announce: Kolban's Book on IBM BPM - September 2012 edition

    ‏2012-09-01T15:18:04Z  
    Folks,

    The release of the September 2012 edition is now out. Again, tweaks throughout the whole document. Ive spent most of the last month studying Coach Views and putting those out on IBM's BPM Wiki so most of the changes in the document are in that areas.

    Hope y'all get some value.

    Enjoy.

    You update this document with a mind-blowing consistency. I admire you Neil. Anyone would think of monetizing such a rich content but you choose to share it for free with everyone. May God bless you to live longer and serve humanity.

    More than food or money, the biggest donation one can give is 'Knowledge'. Rest would follow. A bow to you on behalf of our BPM community.

    I recently got to work on integrating Adobe Flex with 7.5.1, and I found your article very useful. It was succinct and sufficient enough for anyone to get started.

    Thank you, and cheers.

    Vignesh,
    You make me blush. Those are some of the kindest words I have ever read. I appreciate your good thoughts very much. The truth is I really enjoy my job and studying a product is similar to working a cross word puzzle or some similar "mental challenge". IBM pays me to work upon the product but not specially for forum posting or writing PDFs of notes. Rather, I work on the simplest of philosophies that there is nothing in the product that I haven't learned myself by studying what others have previously written or said. Each time I learn a new morsel of information, I try and share it with everyone who may be interested. Because of the many other good people who do the same, together we build, record and share that knowledge. There are many users of our product who have the task of achieving a specific project and don't (correctly) have the time or inclination to spend more time than needed in study. It is primarily for these folks that I strive. To provide pointers to paths through the forest that others have walked before.

    I have no plans to change what I am doing so hopefully much more of the same to come in the future.

    Hi
    Excellent book - many good examples.I co-edited/co-authored the "GBS best practice for modeling" doc so I really appreciate the hard work needed to keep up with the changes.
    One important improvement in V8 is the changed semantics of TerminateEvent - you mention a couple of times that TerminateEvent terminates the whole process instance - all parent processes.
    In V8 you can select to terminate only the current subprocess or the whole tree - a great help in many patterns eg reminder patterns. This change may impact some of the samples you have.
    The services/function table on p211-212 omit some features - for my part the availability/lack of timer functions in various service types was the most confusing in the beginning - both the decoration of other activities and the Wait function. Kust a suggestion to include that in the table.

    <sigh>. Thanks Paul. I messed up. I uploaded last night before I caught a plane to visit with a customer all this week. Problem was, I failed to actually upload the PDF. I changed the web page and built new cover images ... but ... failed at the most important part. It won't be till Saturday when I get home that I can upload. Sorry folks.

    Excellent book! Its now became my bible to BPM8.

    A small request - would it be possible to add in more details on the integration between Process Designer and Integration Designer, especially around Integration Designer invoking Process Designer (not AIS). You have mentioned in the September release that we can use JMS and REST. Perhaps we can also add a section where we can actually use a BPD SCA import directly in Integration Designer. I do have a question though, not sure if i am posting in the right forum, but how would we go about calling a BPD Incoming message event from integration designer? We can probably use JMS, but that's so clunky to use. Are there any other ways (eg. SCA)?
