Modern business logic tooling workshop, lab 4: Create a process

Since starting to update the free online rules and process automation workshops that showcase how to get started using modern business logic tooling, you’ve come a long way with process automation. The updates started with moving from JBoss BPM  to Red Hat Decision Manager and from JBoss BPM Suite to Red Hat Process Automation Manager.

In previous labs, we showed how to install Red Hat Decision Manager on your laptop, how to create a new project, and how to create a domain model. This article highlights the newest lab update for Red Hat Process Automation Manager, where you learn to design a process.

Good news: Business automation is not about SOA

Good news: Business automation is not about SOA

This is not an article about service-oriented architecture (SOA); neither is it a business process management (BPM) article. This article is about how business automation can change the way you create software.

At a first, developers and architects tend to associate the use of BPM suites (or business-oriented architecture) with SOA. This behavior immediately leads to an incorrect bias about the subject.

C-suite executives understand: Transform—or be suppressed by new, disruptive, technology-driven startups. In 2019, business automation is a key transformation that executives will seek in order to improve business performance and lower costs. However, some technology teams are not very open to it. Why?

In the past, BPM suites have been used as big centralized orchestrators for services, external systems, and human tasks. JBoss SOA Platform, released in 2008, is an example of such an integration platform. Unfortunately, this kind of application does not fit new cloud- and microservices-oriented architectures. The good news is that business automation evolved and can help teams to reach the next step in DevOps: BizDevOps.

Demystifying the Red Hat Decision Manager and Process Automation Manager Remote Client

Demystifying the Red Hat Decision Manager and Process Automation Manager Remote Client

KIE-Server is the light-weight, cloud-native, rules and process execution runtime of the Red Hat Decision Manager (RHDM) and Red Hat Process Automation Manager (RHPAM) platforms. Lately, I’ve gotten more and more questions on how to use the KIE-Server Client Java API to interact with the KIE-Server execution runtime of RHDM (formerly called Red Hat JBoss BRMS) and RHPAM (RHPAM). To answers these questions, and to create a future reference, I decided to write a number of code examples, accompanied by this article.

The KIE-Server Client Java API provides an easy way for Java applications to communicate with the KIE-Server execution engine of RHDM and RHPAM. The API abstracts the application from the underlying REST and/or JMS communication protocol and transport, making integrations with the server easier to build, test, and maintain.

Quickly try Red Hat Process Automation Manager in your cloud

Quickly try Red Hat Process Automation Manager in your cloud

It’s been some time since I last talked with you about putting JBoss BPM Suite (now called Red Hat Process Automation Manager) into your cloud, and with the new release, it’s time to talk AppDev in the cloud again.

It’s time to update the story and see how to put Red Hat Process Automation Manager in your cloud so you are set up with a standard configuration to start your first business rules project.

With the easy installation demo project described below, you can leverage process automation tooling through the business central web console running containerized on any Red Hat OpenShift.

Let’s take a closer look at how this works.

Spring Boot-enabled business process automation with Red Hat Process Automation Manager

With the release of version 7.1 of Red Hat Process Automation Manager (RHPAM), the platform now supports the deployment of the process automation manager runtime as a “capability” within Spring Boot applications. As Maciej Swiderski, the project lead for jBPM.org (the upstream community project for RHPAM) explained earlier this year, the KIE (Knowledge Is Everything) platform on which RHPAM is built provides Spring Boot Starters to quickly build a business application or microservice with process and case execution capabilities using a minimal amount of code.
