This 5-day instructor-led course teaches students how to build and deploy process integration solutions using IBM WebSphere Process Server, WebSphere Integration Developer, and WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus.
This course is a continuation of course Developing Applications for IBM WebSphere Process Server V7 - I (WB711) / (VB711). In that course, students learn the basics of the service-oriented architecture (SOA) approach to business process management and build an end-to-end process integration solution. In this course, students extend the functionality of that solution to accommodate additional process integration scenarios.
Through instructor-led presentations and hands-on lab exercises, students learn about the Service Component Architecture (SCA) programming model and runtime environment, XML (business object) support, Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) handlers, business state machines, and SCA transactions. Students also learn about business process dynamicity and flexibility, relationships, mediation primitives, SCA versioning, WebSphere Integration Developer test environment capabilities, approaches to securing SCA applications, and team development environments.
In the intensive hands-on lab exercises, students design, develop, and test comprehensive process integration solutions. Students use WebSphere Integration Developer to create solutions using the Service Component Architecture (SCA) programming model, the Service Data Object (SDO) data model, and the mediation flow programming model, deploy these solutions to the WebSphere Process Server runtime environment, and test them in the WebSphere Integration Developer integrated test environment.
The course also introduces students to iterative (model-driven) application development using WebSphere Business Modeler. In a hands-on lab exercise, students learn how to export a business model from WebSphere Business Modeler, import the application into WebSphere Integration Developer, modify the application, export the changes, and import the modifications back into WebSphere Business Modeler.
What You'll Learn
- Describe the service-oriented architecture approach to business process management
- Create and modify an application using iterative (model-driven) development
- Implement the event sequencing quality of service qualifier in an application
- Implement an MQ import in an application
- Navigate the WebSphere Telecom Content Pack and use the business object compare utility
- Implement a fault handler and compensation handler in a business process
- Navigate and test a business state machine
- Examine the transaction propagation settings and transaction quality of service qualifier settings for an application
- Implement a selector component and dynamically navigate a business process instance at run time
- Implement a static (lookup) relationship
- Implement and deploy SCA modules and libraries containing version information
- Create a service aggregation mediation flow using several prebuilt mediation primitives
- Enable cross-component trace to follow the invocation sequences between SCA applications in order to diagnose and repair an application failure
- Configure security quality of service qualifiers and implement role-based security for human tasks and business processes
