Course Title: Developing Applications for IBM Business Process Manager Advanced V8 – I

Course Duration: 5 Days

Course Number: WB851G

Course Abstract: Please also see alternative option ZB851G (listed under “Online Courses”).

This 5-day instructor-led course teaches you how to use the tools in IBM Business Process Manager Advanced V8 to build and deploy process integration solutions.

IBM Business Process Manager Advanced V8 provides a comprehensive way to manage business processes by offering a suite of tools that support visibility, management, and automation with high quality of service. IBM Process Server and WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus support a service-oriented architecture (SOA) by providing a platform for integrating business applications by using diverse technologies. IBM Process Center provides a scalable central repository and control center for organizing and managing process artifacts, applications, and services. IBM Process Server is a high-performance business process engine that orchestrates services within an SOA, and WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus enables interaction between applications and services by using standards-based connectivity.

In this course, you learn the concepts, architecture, components, processes, and procedures that are required to develop and implement an integrated business solution by using a diverse set of WebSphere and IBM products. You learn how WebSphere Java EE Connector Architecture (JCA) adapters supply connectivity to enterprise information systems (EIS). You learn how IBM Process Server enables business integration applications to define business logic and processes based on Web Services – Business Process Execution Language (WS-BPEL), human tasks, and business rules. You also learn how IBM Process Server uses the Common Event Infrastructure (CEI) to centralize the runtime monitoring of various events that occur in business integration solutions and applications.

The course also teaches you how to implement a reusable Coach View by using a Coach user interface, and then invoke it through a BPEL process. You then learn how to use IBM Process Portal to collaborate with others to participate in processes and complete their work efficiently. In addition, this course covers how WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus provides mediation services for integration applications.

In the intensive hands-on lab exercises, you design, develop, and test a comprehensive business integration solution. You use a standards-based process design tool, IBM Process Designer, as part of the authoring environment to rapidly compose a process design. You use the IBM Integration Designer tool to create business integration solutions by using the Service Component Architecture (SCA) programming model, the Service Data Objects (SDO) data model, and the mediation flow programming model. You then manage your processes in IBM Process Center and deploy the integration application to IBM Process Server. You also test and debug the application.
