|JBoss BPM Suite Mortgage Demo|
A while back I walked you through how to setup the all new JBoss BPM Suite Mortgage Demo, based on the provided example BPM project that you can download with the product. I just wrapped it up and made it a 3-click installation experience.
You will be up and running in less than 5 mins, at least that was all it took for me to video the experience for you.
Now we continue onwards, and show you exactly what is in this process project, how it works, take a single run through the process, and examine the results in the provided BPM BAM dashboard. This video is a bit longer than we like to present at just over 13 minutes covering all of the following aspects and components along the way:
Components on display
- Administration dashboard
- manage organizational units
- Artifact repository dashboard
- upload data model
- Project authoring dashboard
- process designer
- rule editors
- form modeler
- data modeler
- project editor
- build and deploy project
- Process Definitions dashboard
- view definitions
- start process instance
- Process Instance dashboard
- Tasks dashboard
- Process & Task dashboard
As you can see this is a pretty complete run through all the things you will need to understand the project and run the demo. We plan to provide smaller demo videos in the future that will zoom in on short tutorials of individual JBoss BPM Suite components.

Red Hat has just announced general availability of these long awaited products! It takes a large effort to turn the community code into enterprise quality software that customers and end-users can rely on in production with Red Hat support. It is now a great time for current and potential customers to learn about the product, for partners to start engaging with it and learning the nuts and bolts, and for the open source community and Red Hat to receive all sorts of input on these products; all of which turns them into better products to use with the world-class customer service Red Hat has gotten us used to.
The new JBoss BPM Suite has a well defined, integral focus on process management and automation. It represents the culmination of an awesome amount of work done by the open source community over many months. It contains not only improvements on existing components, not only a completely redesigned look and feel, but also a set of exciting new features!
It’s new, but it maintains backwards compatibility with your previous JBoss BRMS business process and rules project implementations. It also offers with your subscription the world class Red Hat JBoss support of your production environment you are familiar with.
JBoss BPM Suite 6 also represents the final phase in the integration of Polymita into Red Hat. That’s why you will find advanced functionalities such as dynamic data and forms modeling. This innovative feature lets you manage those directly from the web interfaces of the tool without coding! Another cool new thing derived from the acquisition is the Business Activity Monitoring. Now you are able to create beautiful dashboards by dragging and dropping on a web interface with all sort of rich graphics that are linked to the processes. In addition, BPM Suite now also includes the entire state-of-the-art BRMS 6 product with its advanced decision management and data analysis capabilities, which is also a separate product in itself that you can continue to use with its own support subscription.
So now it’s your turn! Discover how these new products can contribute value to your organization!

Defining business rules as a decision table
Both business analysts and developers have roles in creating business rules that can be quickly updated. Business analysts devise the rules, and developers code them. One way to do this is to devise rules with decision tables that developers can code from.
Writing rules for a rules-based application
Join this webinar to learn how business analysts can use a spreadsheet to devise decision tables that developers can then use to code business rules.
Working with Red Hat® JBoss® BRMS, we’ll show you how to:
- Lay out spreadsheet-based decision tables.
- Create an actual decision table in a spreadsheet.
- Include the decision tables in rules application code using a JUnit test.

Here are the slides and for those that missed the session you can watch the recording that is already online by registering for this webinar.

Business rules and events exist to drive processes. So in today’s dynamic business environment, creating and updating business rules quickly and efficiently is essential.

JBoss BRMS for business processes and rule-driven applications
After this webinar, you’ll be able to:
- Recognize capabilities, components, and basic concepts of building business processes for rule-driven applications.
- Recall 2 real life projects that bring those concepts to life, with step-by-step explanations of how to reproduce them yourself.

The final release of the Integration & BPM tooling for JBoss Developer Studio (JBDS) has gone public.
This is now arranged centrally, funny enough, in the JBoss Central tab of your JBDS 7.1.
Illustration 1 shows that if you access the Software/Update tab at the bottom of JBoss Central, you will find the product tooling available to you.
Just select the checkbox that applies to you.
This greatly simplifies the tooling and plugins installation process for your development needs.
You no longer need to use the methods below to pull in your developer tooling for the following Red Hat products:
- JBoss Business Rules Management System (BRMS)

I broadcast previously that I would be doing some storytelling on a webinar this week, around Red Hat JBoss BRMS & BPM Suite products.
This webinar was to give a light overview and then take a look closer at the migration of an older JBoss BRMS 5 project to the soon to be available JBoss BPM Suite 6.
There were over 300 registrations for this event and I got a lot of questions online during the event that I was not all able to get to. Don’t worry, I will be getting to them over the next week and get back to you personally if you asked a question that did not get answered live online.
Here are the slides I used, for your viewing pleasure.
