Business Process Management using BPEL

  1. 1. Topic 3 Business Process Management using BPEL Dr.Thanachart Numnonda Sun Microsystems (Thailand) Asst.Prof.Thanisa Kruawaisayawan KMITL
  2. 2. Agenda  Benefits of BPM?  What is BPEL?  BPEL Syntax  BPEL Tools & Engines  NetBeans 6.5 Demo 2
  3. 3. Benefits of BPM? 3
  4. 4. SOA Framework Recap User Interface Dashboard (KPI) User Interface + Single Window (Portal) Business Process Management (BPEL) Build Re-usable Services (ESB) External/Internal Systems 4
  5. 5. Business process  A real-world activity consisting of a set of logically related tasks  When performed in the appropriate sequence, and according to the correct business rules produces a business outcome
  6. 6. Example Business Process
  7. 7. Services composition  The most important SOA concept is composition of services into business processes.  Services are composed in a particular order and provide a set of rule to provide support for business processes  It also enable us to modify business processes quickly  BPEL is used as a dedicated language
  8. 8. Business Process Management  addresses how organizations can identify, model, develop, deploy, and manage their business processes  including processes that involve IT systems and human interaction.
  9. 9. BPM Benefit  Reduce the impedance mismatch between business requirements and IT systems  Increase employee productivity and reduce operational costs  Increase corporate agility and flexibility  Reduce development costs and effort
  10. 10. Benefit of BPM, SOA and WS  more flexible and agile  implementation of a BPM system and the ability to more easily create, manage, and maintain composite applications
  11. 11. Silo IT
  12. 12. SOA and Web Services
  13. 13. Business Process Layer
  14. 14. BPM without Services
  15. 15. Need for Business Process  Developing the web services and exposing the functionality is not sufficient  We also need a way to orchestrate these functionality in the right order  Example:  Concert ticket purchase Web service has 3 operations, which need to be performed in the following order > Getting a price quote > Purchase a ticket > Confirmation and cancellation
  16. 16. Business Process & Workflow  A business process describes what has to be done (including input and output). It might include manual activities (Human Task) and might use any kinds of resources.  A workflow describes how a certain result can be reached. It looks further into the details of all the steps or activities.
  17. 17. Example of a business process hierarchy with a workflow layer
  18. 18. Orchestration & Choreography  Orchestration  Business Process with central coordinator  WS-BPEL  Choreography  Business Collaboration  WS-CDL
  19. 19. Orchestration
  20. 20. Choreography
  21. 21. What is BPEL? 21
  22. 22. Business Process Languages • BPEL / WS-BPEL : OASIS Standard • XLANG and the new version XLANG/s from Microsoft • BPML (Business Process Modeling Language) from BPMI.org • WS-CDL (Web Services Choreography Description Language) • BPSS (Business Process Specification Schema), part of the ebXML framework
  23. 23. WS- BPEL • Web Service- Business Process Execution Language • Version 1.0 released by IBM, Microsoft and BEA in Aug 2002 • Version 1.1 submitted to OASIS April 2003 • Version 2.0 available (2007) • XML language for describing business processes based on Web services • Convergence of XLANG (Microsoft) and WSFL (IBM) • Unprecendented industry consensus • IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, Sun, BEA, SAP, Siebel …
  24. 24. Business Processes with BPEL • BPEL can describes business processes in two distinct ways • Executable business processes specify the exact details of business processes and can be executed by a BPEL engine. • Abstract business processes specify only the public message exchange between parties, without including the specific details of process flows. They are not executable and are rarely used
  25. 25. BPEL “Fixes” WSDL • WSDL: unordered set of operations – Operations are message exchanges • Need rules for ordering
  26. 26. BPEL Is a Web Service Sequencing Language • Process defines “conversation” flow chart – Conversation consists of only WSDL-described message exchanges. • Process instance is a particular conversation following the chart – Execution systems can support multiple concurrent conversations.
  27. 27. BPEL is a WS Composition Language • Consumes services (invoke) • Creates services (receive/reply) • Aggregates fine-grained services • Creates coarser-grained service
  28. 28. Value Proposition of WS-BPEL • Portable business processes – Built on top of an interoperable infrastructure of Web services • Industry wide language for business processes – Common skill set and language for developers • Choice of process engines – Standards lead to competitive offerings
  29. 29. BPEL Syntax 30
  30. 30. Developing BPEL • Requires a good understanding of WSDL • Knowledge of XML / BPEL commands • For ease , uses modeling diagram like BPMN or UML
  31. 31. BPEL Document Structure <process> <!– Definition and roles of process participants --> <partnerLinks> ... </partnerLinks> <!- Data/state used within the process --> <variables> ... </variables> <!- Properties that enable conversations --> <correlationSets> ... </correlationSets> <!- Exception handling --> <faultHandlers> ... </faultHandlers> <!- Error recovery – undoing actions --> <compensationHandlers> ... </compensationHandlers> <!- Concurrent events with process itself --> <eventHandlers> ... </eventHandlers> <!- Business process flow --> (activities)* </process>
  32. 32. <partnerlink> • BPEL enable us to accurately specify relations between several web services in the business process. • These relations are called partner links
  33. 33. BPEL: Relationship to Partners WSDL Partner Service Partner Service Partner Service Orchestrating Process (BPEL) Partner Service
  34. 34. Business Process
  35. 35. Business Process & <partner links>
  36. 36. BPMN • Business Process Manafement Notation • Notation is similar to UML • Allow business people to describe a process flow from a hugh level • BPEL is more suited to technical people.
  37. 37. Simple BPEL Graphic Editor
  38. 38. BPEL Activities Basic Activities Structured Activities  <invoke>  <sequence>  <receive>  <while>  <reply>  <pick>  <assign>  <flow>  <throw>  <scope>  <wait>  <compensate>  <empty>  <switch>  <link>
  39. 39. BPEL: Basic Activities  <invoke>  To invoke a one-way or request/response operation on a portType offered by a partner  <receive>  To do a blocking wait for a matching message to arrive  Can be the instantiator of the business process  <reply>  To send a message in reply to a message that was received through a <receive>  The combination of a <receive> and a <reply> forms a request-response operation on the WSDL portType for the process
  40. 40. BPEL: Basic Activities (cont.)  <assign>  Can be used to update the values of variables with new data  <throw>  Generates a fault from inside the business process  <wait>  Allows you to wait for a given time period or until a certain time has passed  <empty>  Allows you to insert a "no-op" instruction into a business process  This is useful for synchronization of concurrent activities, for instance
  41. 41. BPEL: Structured Activities  <sequence>  Perform activities in sequential order  <flow>  Perform activities in parallel  <switch>  Conditional choice of activities  <scope>  Enclose multiple activities in a single scope
  42. 42. BPEL Tools & Engine 43
  43. 43. BPEL Components
  44. 44. BPEL Designer Tools • IDE can be used to write BPEL or BPMN • Examples: – NetBeans 6.1/6.5 – Eclipse – Oracle Jdeveloper 10g – IBM WebSphere Studio 45
  45. 45. BPEL Server • Provides a run time environment for executing BPEL • Examples – GlassFishESB (via BPEL SE) – Oracle BPEL Process Manager – Microosoft Biztalk – Sun Java CAPS – IBM WebSphere Business Integration Server – Active BPEL Engine – Apache Agila 46
  46. 46. NetBeans 6.5 BPEL Editor 47
  47. 47. Example : BPEL 48
  48. 48. GlassFish BPEL SE • GlassFish V2 has OpenESB • Project OpenESB implements ESB runtime using Java Business Integration (JBI) as the foundation • JBI container has BPEL SE (Service Engine) 49
