WebSphere BPM v8.5 Development

WebSphere BPM v8.5 Development

This course is suitable for integration developers involved in integrating applications primarily by developing business processes, system administrators and other technical staff involved with working with a business process. Experience or understanding in the areas of J2EE platform and distributed computing is strongly preferred.

This course builds on the integration skills and Developing Applications for IBM WebSphere Process Server, students learn the basics of service-oriented architecture (SOA) and build a simple end-to-end scenario using WebSphere Integration Developer and WebSphere Process Server.

This course goes into greater detail regarding WebSphere process integration from both runtime and development aspects, covering topics that build the skills students need to address common integration and project implementation problems. Through lectures and hands-on exercises, students learn about Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) binding mechanics in order to better understand the WebSphere Process Server technology, as well as approaches to securing Service Component Architecture (SCA) applications. Advanced tooling topics include business process choreographer (BPC), business state machines (BSM), business object (BO) mapping, cross-referencing, dynamicity, component versioning, and source control using Concurrent Versions System (CVS).

Students are also introduced to the WebSphere Business Modeler tool in this course. In a hands-on lab exercise, students learn how a business model can be exported from WebSphere Business Modeler and imported into WebSphere Integration Developer as Business Process Execution Language (BPEL). After completing this course and its prerequisite, students have the knowledge needed to implement complex business integration scenarios using WebSphere Integration Developer and WebSphere Process Server.

WebSphere Process Server and WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus support a service-oriented architecture (SOA) by providing the ideal platform for integrating business applications using diverse technologies. WebSphere Process Server is a high-performance business process engine that orchestrates services within an SOA, and WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus enables applications and services to interact with each other using standards-based connectivity.

Through instructor-led presentations and hands-on lab exercises, students learn the concepts, architecture, components, processes, and procedures necessary to develop and implement an integrated business solution using a diverse set of WebSphere and IBM products. The course teaches students how WebSphere Adapters supply connectivity to back-end enterprise information systems (EIS) and how WebSphere 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. Students also learn how WebSphere Process Server uses the Common Event Infrastructure (CEI) to centralize the runtime monitoring of various events that occur in business integration solutions and applications. In addition, this course covers how WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus provides mediation services for integration applications.

In the intensive hands-on lab exercises, students design, develop, and test a comprehensive business integration solution. Students use the WebSphere Integration Developer tool set to create business integration solutions using the Service Component Architecture (SCA) programming model, the Service Data Object (SDO) data model, and the mediation flow programming model. Students then deploy the integration application to WebSphere Process Server and learn how to test and debug the application.
