A Business Process Management System (BPMS) offers you the capabilities to better manage and streamline your business processes. JBoss continues expanding its vision in this area by offering a lightweight process engine for executing business processes, combined with the necessary services and tooling to support business processes in their entire life-cycles.

This allows not only developers but also business users to manage your business processes more efficiently. A lot has happened in the BPM area over the last few years, with the introduction of the BPMN 2.0 standard, the increasing interest in more dynamic and adaptive processes, integration with business rules and event processing, case management, etc. In this session, we will show you how JBoss BRMS leverages the jBPM project to tackle these challenge and give you an overview of its most important BPMS features.

  • We will start with a discussion of how the BRMS comes to be. We will breeze over the background of BPM, discuss how the project jBPM releases are incorporated into the BRMS product. From there we will examine the interesting points as they apply to a business user, followed by the more technical elements of BRMS that will be of interest to developers. Finally we will summarize in an overview the new BPM components that come from the jBPM project. We will also mention the components that will NOT be included into the BRMS 5.3 product that are in the jBPM project. These are up and coming features that have yet to mature enough for inclusion at this time, but you can expect to appear in future versions of BRMS.
  • Here’s a sketch of the primary components of JBoss BRMS, and as you can see it comprises the 4 main components we just talked about... But what you might notice is that we’ve packed a lot more into JBoss BRMS... The runtime services include...
  • JBoss Enteprise BRMS (new in 2009) Enables critical business rules to be managed in a more centralized manner (e.g. Insurance = policy risk assess and pricing; Heathcare = claims processing annual regulatory changes) Avoids need to otherwise re-code business rules redundantly in multiple applications Leverages JBoss Rules execution engine which has been available for years Adds new browser-based Rules Mgmt app, enabling business users to participate in the review, editing, and maintenance of business rule changes Also adds Repository to provide version management of multiple sets of business rules Supports the deployment of business rules to JBoss middleware platforms and non-JBoss runtime environments
  • One of the main problems if u use bpm system sometimes you cannot implement all your business logic in a business process diagram because then the diagram becomes too complex. We believe there should be flexibility and ability to dynamicall change your process instances on the fly. User should decide what happens...Ad-hoc subprocess meaning that in this case we are defining process fragments – 3 possible options then end user is responsible for deciding which one of those is going to be executed..he can dynamicall add new tasks to this even tho they are not part of the original process definition.. You can combine this paradigm with other things like business rules or event process..a rule could trigger one path depending on some data or some events Not only BPMN ..Use the paradigm to be best suited for you..which could be a combination of processes, rules, event processes
  • When you start the process you need to specify some info – what employee and a reason HR logs whats going on .. then make a decision
  • We are going to generate forms (tas forms) one to start the process..and one for HR approval..generated automatically and ran on the jbpm console
  • Hide complexiti of the business processes – we allow you to create domain-specific nodes that use domain-specific services ..business users or developers can just drag-drop these service nodes and start using them Describe slide..each domain specific nodes and can start using them right away..
