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.

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.

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.


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