DescriptionWhat we offer

This 3-day, instructor-led course teaches delivery best practice patterns and IBM WebSphere Lombardi Edition implementation practices that improve the speed and quality of process definition and implementation efforts.

In this course, students use IBM WebSphere Lombardi Edition to implement functionality in a business process definition (BPD). First, students examine the architecture of WebSphere Lombardi Edition to provide contextual information for the rest of the course. Students then learn how variables in Lombardi are scoped and used to exchange information between services and business processes. After learning about variables, students examine process flows to learn about routing and gateways. Students then build user interfaces (Coaches) and leverage the integration capabilities that Lombardi provides. The focus of this course is on reuse, ease of maintenance, and using best practices. After completing the integration exercises, students implement message events. Finally, students learn best practices for snapshots, toolkits, and organizing process assets.

This course uses an interactive learning environment, with hands-on demonstrations, class activities to reinforce concepts and check understanding, and labs embedded in each of the course units that enable hands-on experience with BPM tasks and skills. This course is designed to be collaborative, and students can work in teams to perform class activities.
