Red Hat Summit Report From the Finish Line

The final bell has tolled and we are all heading or headed back to our destinations after a crazy, fun, informative and exciting week at Red Hat Summit 2015 in Boston.

I was completely filled with booth activities, breakfast meetings, a meet the author event, giving three labs, evening meet ups and a last minute session due to missing speakers.

As mentioned, it was some week filled with conversations around JBoss BPM Suite and JBoss BRMS.

Thanks to all who stopped by the booth, joined a lab, attended my session or just stopped me in the halls for a chat. You were all so nice and fun to catch up with, but too numerous to single out here.

The JBoss BRMS & JBoss BPM Suite chose your own adventure labs were a lot of fun to see and you can get them online to continue your investigations at home.

A lab co-hosted with Christina Lin around building JBoss BPM Travel Agency with JBoss Fuse microservices was a big hit (completely sold out!) with a line out the door and around the corner waiting to get in. Thanks all who came to experience our work, it was fun to see you building hands-on projects!

With some issues getting our speakers to the venue due to passport issues, I got slotted into a talk on JBoss BPM integration.

A Guide to Modern BPM Integration

All across the Internet you will find references to solutions, offerings, and products that try to align with business process management (BPM) solutions.

Whether you’re a Business Analyst or in IT strategy, this session will illustrate how easy it is to model and automate business processes with modern BPM tools in the travel industry.

If you are talking to an airline, a baggage handler, a bookings agency or anyone in between, they all have one thing in common. They are dealing with complex business processes that often need to combine rules, events, resource planning, and processes.

You’ll take a deep look into several sample integration solutions for this industry, simulating a travel agency booking system with:
  • Service integration
  • Multiple tasks
  • Complex BPM elements and
  • Rule-based fraud detection for payment processing
  • Disparate data source integration
  • Microservice migration and integration with BPM
You will leave with an advanced overview of the capabilities of the Red Hat® JBoss® BPM Suite.

As promised the slides are available here:


A Guide to Modern BPM Integration

We look forward to seeing you again next year in San Francisco in 2016!

JBoss BPM Suite Quick Guide - Import External Data Models to BPM Project

You are working on a big project, developing rules, events and processes at your enterprise for mission critical business needs.

Part of the requirements state that a certain business unit will be providing their data model for you to leverage.

This data model will not be designed in the JBoss BPM Suite Data Modeler but you need to have access to it while working on your rules, events and processes from the business central dashboard.

For this article we will be using the JBoss BPM Travel Agency demo project as a reference, with it's current data model built externally to the JBoss BPM Suite business central. The external data model is called the acme-data-model and is found in the project directory:


This data model is built during installation and provides you with an object data model as a Java Archive (JAR) file which is installed into the JBoss BPM Suite business central component by placing it into the following location:

jboss-eap-6.4/standalone/deployments/business-central.war/WEB_INF/lib/acmeDataModel-1.0.jar

Authoring --> Artifact repository.
This way of deploying the data model means that it is available to all projects you work on in JBoss BPM Suite business central, something that might not always be preferable. What we need is a way to deploy external data models into JBoss BPM Suite and then selectively add them to projects as needed.

Within JBoss BPM Suite there is an Artifact Repository that is made just for this purpose. We can upload through the business central dashboard UI all our models and then pick and choose from the repository artifacts (your data model is one artifact) on a per project basis. 

This gives you absolute control over the models that a project can access.

Choose external data model file.
There are a few steps involved that we will take you through here to change the current installation of JBoss BPM Travel Agency where the acmeDataModel-1.0.jar file will be removed from the previously mentioned business central component and uploaded into the Artifact Repository and added to the Special Trips Agency project.

Here is how you can do it yourself:
$ rm ./target/jboss-eap-6.4/standalone/deployments/business-central.war/WEB_INF/lib/acmeDataModel-1.0.jar
Upload external model jar file.
  • start JBoss BPM Suite server after installation as stated in the installation instructions
  • login to JBoss BPM Suite at http://localhost:8080/business-central with:
    • u: erics
    • p: bpmsuite1!
  • go to AUTHORING --> ARTIFACT REPOSITORY
  • go to UPLOAD --> CHOOSE FILE... --> projects/acme-data-model/target/acmeDataModel-1.0.jar --> click button to UPLOAD
    • this puts the external data model into the JBoss BPM Suite artifact repository

Select dependencies to add to project.
  • got to AUTHORING --> PROJECT AUTHORING --> OPEN PROJECT EDITOR 
  • in project editor select GENERAL PROJECT SETTINGS --> DEPENDENCIES
  • in dependencies select ADD FROM REPOSITORY -> in pop-up SELECT entry acmeDataModel-1.0.jar

This will result in the external data model being added only to the Special Trips Agency project and not available to other projects unless they add this same dependency from the JBoss BPM Suite artifact repository.



If you build & deploy the project, run it as described in the project instructions you will find that the external data model is available and used by the various rules and process components that are the JBoss BPM Travel Agency.
Looking to Automate your business?

As a closing note, this works exactly the same for JBoss BRMS projects.

From Design to Execution with JBoss BPM Suite & Signavio Process Editor

Occasionally we are asked about JBoss BPM Suite integration with other products and layers in an enterprises architecture.

We have published articles talking about how to achieve this with various aspects such as:
Articles are one thing, but seeing is believing, so we have done a few webinars to show you live how to tackle integration:
Signavio process editor with mortgage process design
before exporting to JBoss BPM Suite.
Along with these articles we have always published demo projects that give you a closer look and chance to get hands on with these integration strategies:
There is another integration story yet to be told about how one can leverage other tooling together with JBoss BPM Suite.

This article will introduce one such company, Signavio, that provides a Signavio Process Editor so "...you can start modeling and engaging your organization in improving operational efficiency through the development of optimal models..."

The following demo project provides a working example of how you can model an example mortgage process in Signavio Process Editor and then bring it into JBoss BPM Suite where you can add implementation details, integration details and other implementation details to finally execute the mortgage process end-to-end.

Imported Signavio Process Editor mortgage workflow.

Demo project

As always we bring you not only a story, but a reusable demo project you can easily spin up yourself to explore the details around how a JBoss BPM project would integrate with the model designed in Signavio Process Editor.

The project is called the JBoss BPM Suite & Signavio Process Editor Integration Demo.

The project installs JBoss BPM Suite 6.1 with an example mortgage project with rules, process, forms and other artifacts. It also includes a copy of an exported Signavio Process Editor mortgage process that we then show how to import.
Final mortgage workflow project with
implementation details and integration
details completed. Ready to run!

This gives you the initial starting point after importing the Signavio process and the completely integrated final mortgage project that you can run side-by-side.

To setup this project there are just a few simple steps to get going and will be up and running minutes:

Installation

  1. Add products to installs directory.
  2. Run 'init.sh' or 'init.bat' file. 'init.bat' must be run with Administrative privileges.
  3. Start JBoss BPMS Server by running 'standalone.sh' or 'standalone.bat' in the /target/jboss-eap-6.1/bin directory.
  4. Login to http://localhost:8080/business-central
    - login for admin, appraisor, broker, and manager roles (u:erics / p:bpmsuite1!)
    
  5. Mortgage Loan demo pre-installed as project.
  6. Using process designer, import the Signavio process that was exported to the file found in:
    support/MortgageDemoSignavio.bpmn
    
  7. Looking to Automate your business?
    See screenshots provided in project for how this should look and note that the JBoss BPM Suite process designer included validation that puts messages about tasks not specified, this is correct as at this point you need to start implementing the process tasks.
You can examine the imported process and note the various details captured during initial workshops have been put into the process details for each step in the workflow. After implementing these steps you will find the final process ready to run.

You can now explore the final project by deploying it and starting a new instance.

We hope you enjoy this example project and feel free to browse for more at JBoss Demo Central.

Webinar - A Guide to Modern BPM Data Integration (slides)

We have talked about how much fun this can be, we have showed you the videos of how it works and we have showcased it in bpmPaaS.

What more can we do with the JBoss BPM Travel Agency?

Well I am glad you asked, as we hosted a live webinar where I walked through this fantastic example of how to leverage rules, services, user tasks and more in a travel industry use case.

We were live on Wednesday, June 17th at 08:00 PT / 11:00 ET / 17:00 CET. If you register online you can watch the recording (will be given a link to it).

The abstract and slides are provided here below and a video run through the project is also available.

A Guide to Modern BPM Data Integration

Enterprise data is often critical to providing timely and effective information for any enterprise application, but we struggle to integrate our vital and often diverse sources of information to our applications in a timely and effective manner.

No more.

Whether you are a Data Analyst, Business Analyst or in IT Strategy, this webinar will illustrate how easy it is to integrate disparate data spread across your organization when modeling and automating your business processes with modern BPM tools.

We will take you through an in depth sample solution that simulates a Travel Agency with examples of some of the complexities you will encounter:
Looking to Automate your business?
  • realtime disparate data integration 
  • rule based data validation
  • rule based fraud detection for payment processing
  • service integration
You will receive an advanced overview of the capabilities of both the Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization, Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite and a sample project with which to evaluate the solution.


Hope you enjoyed the webinar!

Modern BPM Data Integration with JBoss BPM Travel Agency Demo (video)

Some time ago we launched a rather expansive JBoss Travel Agency demo project to show some of the more interesting feature of JBoss BPM Suite.

We provided a collection of videos that not only show you how to install it, what the various rule and process artifacts are in the project, but we also walk you through the various paths you can take during actual use of the JBoss Travel Agency process.

The project continued to expand over time, adding on not just a bookings process, but also a payment process that included advanced features like compensation (rolling back bookings), integration of traditional web services in service tasks and a credit card fraud detection system.

We have showcased this project on several online webinars, including together with PEX Processing Network.

Continuing to expand and integrate data with
JBoss BPM Travel Agency using
JBoss Data Virtualizaiton
After that we decided to provide a reusable demo project you can easily spin up yourself to explore the details around how a JBoss BPM project would integrate with the microservices we migrated from existing classic web services with JBoss Fuse.

Finally, we put together an Ultimate Guide to JBoss Integration, where we looked at some of the more interesting products you can use to implement use cases where JBoss BPM integrates your various data needs.

The only thing missing in this discussion was a working example of data integration, where we are "...accessing data and functions from disparate systems to create a combined and consistent view of core information for use across the organization to gain necessary insights and improve business decisions and operations. This type of integration usually helps to accelerate development of business intelligence systems."

As JBoss Data Virtualization (DV) is ideally suited for this type of integration we went ahead an put together an example of this that fully integrated a working JBoss BPM Travel Agency with JBoss DV virtualized data sources that allow us to gather both Flight and Hotel information.

We also use this integration to communicate our bookings data back to the correct systems of record that JBoss DV manages for us behind the scenes and provide a consistent view that is integrated into the JBoss BPM Suite BAM dashboard.
Looking to Automate your business?

Please also take the time to join us for the webinar A Guide to Modern BPM Data Integration that will provide all the details around this project and a live run through the project showcasing everything presented here.

Video

We have also put together a short video of five and half minutes to walk you through how to run this project.




If you need more visual help with what the JBoss BPM Travel Agency can do,  check out the videos provided with the JBoss BPM Travel Agency that show you how to run through a valid travel booking.

Getting Very Retail with New JBoss BRMS Cool Store

Cool Store leverages KieScanner for rule updates
It is time for another update to the awesome JBoss Business Rules Management System (BRMS) Cool Store Demo, this time brought to you with the latest patches for JBoss BRMS 6.1.1 product.

This latest patch contains fixes to features we specifically showcased in this demo project.

We now have the Cool Store web application that relies on the JBoss BRMS business central based project for its rules, events, model, and a rule-flow.

The example web application is based on the popular framework Vaadin which is an example of an online shopping cart. This web application demonstrates interaction between a web front end and a decision table and rules package.

JBoss BRMS Cool Store decision table
It leverages the KieScanner feature that allows the business logic to become externalized from your deployed application and can then be modified as needed at runtime. This application leverages the rules to calculate the shipping costs based on your rules in the table below.

It is pretty simple really, you can adjust how much the ranges are and what the shipping for the shopping cart total order will be by tweaking this table, for example:
  • the price from Tier 1 based on value totaling between $0 - $25 is $2.99
  • you can fill your cart with order under $25 of materials to validate
  • edit decision table and adjust it to $12.99 for Tier 1 shipping
  • save changes
  • build & deploy your cool store project
  • re-order the same materials and validate the charge to Tier 1 shipping is now $12.99
I have released version 2.9 based on JBoss BRMS 6.0.0.GA which will get you started in a very short amount of time. See the provided documentation and Readme file in the project.

Looking to Automate your business?
The project is in the same template you are used to getting from JBoss Technology Evangelists, providing you with the 3-step setup you expect from us:
  1. download & unzip 
  2. download from Customer Portal:
  3. run projects init script for automated setup
We will be updating the videos for this demo project, so stay tuned and hope you enjoy this project!

Rules, events and processes guest lecture Radboud University Nijmegen

The path to knowledge can often be filled with hours of study, books, papers, assignments, due dates and exams. Occasionally it is nice to take a side trip into the real world where the knowledge you are gathering in academics is presented in a practical scenario.

This is what I try to do a few times a year when  I give guest lectures at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, Netherlands.

This week was a lecture for the Masters course Business Rules and Application where I take the students from deep in the theory to the practical application within a real world business rules management system.

A nice group of students put up with my story telling over a two hour period where we talked through an introduction to how an enterprise looks at rules, events and processes. This worked towards a live demo session where we took a closer look at what JBoss BRMS and JBoss BPM Suite has to offer.

The first demo was of the JBoss BPM Travel Agency with rules, processes, and an extensive tour of the business analyst tooling to help them design and implement their business logic.
Looking to Automate your business?

The final demo was specific to JBoss BRMS, the Cool Store, with domain specific language implementations and an event stream that we covered in depth.

Finally, the students were pointed towards the free online JBoss BRMS and JBoss BPM Suite workshops where they could get started implementing both of the demonstration projects.

As these students were not well versed in JBoss technologies, walked through where they could find the products to get started on jboss.org/products. Also the newer JBoss BPM Suite workshops around the Travel Agency were highlighted.

Last but not least there are the JBoss BRMS Getting Started Kit and the JBoss BPM Suite Getting Started Kit.

For completeness the slides used are provided once again here:



Looking forward to our next guest lecture, so until then good luck with the final exams!

NCDevCon 2015 submission - Rule the World with Practical Rules & BPM Development

This is a bit of going out on a limb and trying to bring the power to developers who mainly focus on HTML5, Mobile, CSS, Design, JavaScript or ColdFusion applications.

Why not super-charge your applications with the knowledge of rules, events and processes that can expand your developer toolbox?

It is called NCDevCon 2015, takes place on September 26-27 and is going to be hosted at Centennial Campus of NC State University in Raleigh, North Carolina. They are web developer specific, but maybe, just maybe I can get in and expand a few horizons?

I have submitted the following hands-on session.

Rule the World with Practical Rules & BPM Development

Ready to get hands-on with technology that can super-size your HTML5, Mobile, CSS, Design, JavaScript or ColdFusion applications?

Why not super-charge your web applications with the knowledge of rules, events and processes that can expand your developer toolbox?

Looking to Automate your business?

With this workshop you get a chance to do just that, unlock the power of business rules engines and business processing for your development projects. We will take you through it all step-by-step, building rules, domain specific languages, using the wizards and editors that the JBoss BRMS & BPM Suite provide to create your own rules or process project. You have a choice in this workshop between an online web shop project or an HR employee rewards process project.


Bring your laptop as this is a hands on experience that takes you from nothing to a fully working rules or process experience with JBoss open source software. No experience in rules or processes is required, you will be guided by the experienced speaker and go home ready to apply what you have learned in your own projects.


Fingers crossed and hope to see you in September in North Carolina!

Submit a travel booking request.
As JBoss Data Virtualization (DV) is ideally suited for this type of integration we went ahead an put together an example of this that fully integrated a working JBoss BPM Travel Agency with JBoss DV virtualized data sources that allow us to gather both Flight and Hotel information.

We also use this integration to communicate our bookings data back to the correct systems of record that JBoss DV manages for us behind the scenes and provide a consistent view that is integrated into the JBoss BPM Suite BAM dashboard.

JBoss DV provides a concise view of the Flight data.
Please also take the time to join us for the webinar A Guide to Modern BPM Data Integration that will provide all the details around this project and a live run through the project showcasing everything presented here.

Demo project

The project installs JBoss BPM Suite 6.1 with the JBoss BPM Travel Agency projects rules, process, forms and sub-flow. It then installs JBoss DV 6.1.1 with several data sources setup to be used by our application.

JBoss DV provides overview of Hotel data.
To setup this project there are just a few simple steps to get going.

Installation

  1. Add products to installs directory.
  2. Run 'init.sh' or 'init.bat' file. 'init.bat' must be run with Administrative privileges.
  3. Start JBoss DV Server with offset port with '-Djboss.socket.binding.port-offset=100'
  4. Flight bookings are tracked in BAM dashboard.
    Start the JBoss BPM Suite server, login, build and deploy JBoss BPM Suite process project at http://localhost:8080/business-central (u:erics/p:bpmsuite1!).
  5. Create custom Dashboard entry for monitoring the external JBoss DV virtualized DB views:
    1. - select menus Dashboards --> Business Dashboards 
      
      - select Administration -->  External Connections 
      
      - select Create New Datasource and select radio box Custom Datasource
      
      - fill in form as follows:
      
          - Name: TravelVDB
      
          - Url:  jdbc:teiid:TravelVDB@mm://localhost:31100
      
          - DB Driver Class:  select Teiid
      
          - User:  teiidUser
      
          - Password:  admin_24
      
          - Test query:  select 1
      
      - select Check Datasource, if all goes well Save the configuration.
      
      - select in top left Workspace: 'Flight and Hotel Bookings'
      
      - these are the BAM dashboard views of the integrated data.
      
      - monitor for bookings when running process instances.
Hotel bookings finalized and displayed in BAM dashboard.
Once you are up and running just build the project in JBoss BPM Suite and run the process by submitting through the client web application at:

      http://localhost:8080/external-client-ui-form-1.0

Looking to Automate your business?
The process will now be using the various data sources and the BAM dashboard will provided a running live look at the data as fights and hotels are being booked by users of your process.

If you need some visual assistance you can watch the videos provided with the JBoss BPM Travel Agency that show you how to run through a valid travel booking.

We hope you enjoy this one too and feel free to browse for more at JBoss Demo Central.
