The software can support any processes, small or large. It allows companies of all sizes to design, deploy, and optimize the most complex business processes. This can be done on top of any application and middleware system without having to write any code. Intalio bpms provides a comprehensive enterprise-class platform to design, deploy, and manage the most complex business processes. It features an intuitive and powerful visual designer, for designing the business processes and a reliable high-performance process execution server for running the business processes once deployed. The server can support the most complex business processes, deployed within mission-critical environments.

This can be anywhere convenient for you. The mostly-empty project folder will appear in the upper left pane of Designer, called the Process Explorer. Click Finish and the diagram will automatically open in Designer. It contains one pool, containing one task. Double-click on the name of the pool, along the left-hand side, to enter the name of your process. BPMN is a common language for business analysts to define the semantics in their processes.

To add new task or event shapes in your diagram, you can select them from the Palette tab. Just click the Palette tab to display all the shapes you can use in your process diagrams. Click on any shape to select it, and then click on your diagram to add that shape to it. If you double-click a shape in the Palette, it will display a black border, and then you can click in your diagram multiple times to add multiple copies of the same shape. There are several other ways you can quickly add new shapes to your diagram, and you can learn about them with our reference guides.

In BPMN, executable processes should always start with a Start Event, and furthermore executable processes always start by receiving an external message.

The first is a simply a second Task, and the second is a Message End Event. Rename, move, and connect them to look like the screenshot below. We can now start connecting our process with some external systems, like the TimeService web service. Step 4: Implement the processImplementing the process refers to binding the process model to existing systems and defining the flow and manipulation of data.

During this phase we can also assign tasks to roles or individuals, define exception handlers in case of a failure, and implement advanced concepts such as transactions. An interface is represented by a participant that is calling the process. However, the new pool we have just created will not represent a process that will execute.

It is used to represent how the process will be called by the outside world, from other processes, external web service calls, or in our case a human user via the BPMS Console. So, once the pool is created, you will set it to non-executable. We will answer those questions by using XML Schema elements to define our message content. This is available in the completed GetTime example which you should have downloaded already. Simply unzip the GetTime example, and drag-and-drop the GetTime.

Now in your Process Explorer, you can unfold GetTime. You can also access the messages included in the operations and even the schema that defines the data structure of the operations.

Like GetTime. Unfold TimeService. You can learn more about those from other reference guides and tutorials. Follow the same steps to add the getCityTime operation to the same pool. The order in which you create the links is important because it defines the order in which messages are sent or received. You can think of it this way: your process has to tell the web service which operation is wants to run and any data the web service needs before the web service can give your process the results.

Connect both tasks to their operations, and it should look like the screenshot below. Notice that the messages each have their own icons already.

This is because the WSDL contains the schema for these messages already, and Designer automatically adds them for you. Step 8: Create the data flowAll the data involved in a process is contained in variables.

Variables are automatically created for you when you integrate an external WSDL or when you create a message connection, including any XML Schemas you specify. The Mapper is a graphical tool that allows you to define various data manipulations, how the data is then passed through your process, and other process function such as evaluating conditions in process flow or looping. In our process, variables are going to be used for two different things: invoking the getCityTime operation, and returning the result to the user via the BPMS Console.

We need to tell the getCityTime operation which city we want information about. More accurately, we want the USER to be able to tell the web service which city they want, and so that data will get passed through our process up until this point. Click it, then the source city element, and finally the destination city element.

Now the web service will receive whatever city the user enters when they start the process. Note that mappings are not always this simple, but there are certainly times when you simply want to pass data from one pool to another like this. For more complex mappings including arithmetic, string, XML, or other manipulations, the Mapper supports dozens of functions designed to make these transformations easy.

More information on complex mapping is available in advanced tutorials. Reference guides: Intalio Designer — Data Mapper There is one last mapping to perform in this process: we need to return the result from the web service operations to the user. You should be able to do this mapping alone, but make sure you select the Send Response event in your diagram first to do it. See the screenshot below for the expected mapping. Deployment and ExecutionOur process is now fully implemented!

Now for deploying, testing, and executing it, please continue to the next article: Deploying and Testing Your First Process.
