Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite - Online Workshop Building a Travel Agency (Introduction)

Welcome to the kickoff of the second series of JBoss Business Process Management (BPM) Suite online workshops.

For the very first ones you can start building the JBoss Cool Store retail online web shop and JBoss HR Employee Rewards process project.

In this workshop we will be introducing you to the possibilities that abound for your business when leveraging this product.

Each article presented here will push out the next installment of this workshop that will lead you through building the JBoss BPM Travel Agency, including installation of the product, designing the domain model, building rules, tasks, forms and integrating services.

If you would like a tour of the JBoss BPM Travel Agency, there is a four part video series to quickly get you up and running.

This project is available as a completed project called the JBoss BPM Travel Agency, but we thought it would be interesting to help you build this application from scratch.

This week we kick it off with an introduction to the workshop including the product overview, pointers to the JBoss BRMS workshop and then point you to the first lab which will be released soon showing you how to install the JBoss BPM Suite.

In following articles we will feed you new sets of lab exercises to help you to the next stage of development as you watch your very own JBoss BPM Travel Agency take off and fly.

All of the workshop materials will be hosted online with the help of OpenShift, so all you need is a browser to follow along below.

You do not need to be a Java developer, as this workshop focuses on only the online product web dashboard experience as an analyst would interact with the product. The only technical deviation from this will be the initial installation of the product, but we have detailed instructions and it is a three step process that should not take you more than a few minutes.

So what are you waiting for?

Let's get started with the introduction to the workshop:
