BPM Suite 6 - 搶頭香分享,Beta 版介紹囉~

終於有點時間來看BPM Suite 6 了,之前一個月真的忙到回家只想躺著。電腦打都不想打開。所以都沒有更新,真是抱歉拉各位。(因為這樣正妹都變成肥妹了... 還我漂漂~噁~本來就不正了..歪一點也沒關係... )

JBoss 的新 BPM Suite 是針對jBPM 6 的企業支援版(個人認為整個界面更友善了,有種打怪升級的感覺),你問我跟之前得BRMS 有啥不同,我現在在玩Beta版的感覺就是, BRMS 主要是在整合邏輯方面的運用,如寫寫Rules, 跟CEP。 但是 BPM Suite 就是流程的部分拉! (簡單來說,BRMS就是 -> 完整版的邏輯引擎 + 陽春未支援版的jBPM)
==========================================================
BPM Suite 不是 BRMS,BPM Suite 不是 BRMS,BPM Suite 不是 BRMS
==========================================================

先來看看部署的檔案,目前Beta版看起來,原先的WAR 檔已經少了好幾個了,他把原先比較散落的的幾個如 jBPM console, Task server 還有Guvnor, 全部整合在一個Project 裡面。畫面也統一多了。


圖,如畫面上的WAR, 他只剩下這兩個了.. 科科。

回到登入畫面,長得就像醬子~所以以前Gunvor 的 http://hostIP:port/jboss-brms 已經不會存在了,現在要進入JBoss BPM Suite 6 就是透過  http://hostIP:port/business-central 進入



登入之後,還是可以看到畫面分成了五大塊,定義了一個流程生命週期會用到的部分,

1. 開發/資源/版本管理
2. 部署
3. 流程管理
4. 任務執行/管理
5. 儀表板(報表)界面




開發/資源管理 (Authoring)


比較像是先前5.3, 所以這裡我覺得變動上不大,比較不同的是,5.3概念是每個Package為一個單位, 但是在6 變成了Project 一個單位,Package 回歸到自己應該有的角色,跟java的package一樣,只是拿來分層用的。流程與規則編輯畫面的跟前一版Guvnor沒啥兩樣。

分成三個小功能

Project Authoring

主要的編輯跟編譯,根部署界面。

這個版本的BPM的大大改進,以前的BRMS 把所有的流程(Process),規則(Rules),Models 還有測試的腳本,阿裡阿匝的東西全部都透過JCR 儲存成一大塊的repository,搞得每次匯出匯入的時候都麻煩的要死,一次就是一大坨。這次他的版本控管的底層,改成了用Git 還有 maven 來管理,讓整個資源可以分成一個模組,一個模組的部署。所以我可以分別把不同的流程版本,分別部署到各個不同的環境上面。

Project Explorer view (左手邊的部分) 有所有儲存庫的Overview 結構, 裡面的資源有哪些, 像是有哪些定義好的商業流程拉,頁面啊,商業規則等等。
右手邊就是編輯用的,要看你左邊點到哪個資源,右邊就會出現相對的編輯器。這頁也是主要針對Project 要做validate 或是建制與部署的頁面。右下方在Validate出問題時,也會顯示有問題的內容。


Asset Repository 

可以看到Maven Repository 裡面的檔案內容


Administration

主要做資產的群組,分類與管理的工作。
所有建立的資源,都以 "Organizational Units(組織單位)"的方式放在儲存庫中裡面,也就是資產除存庫中的路徑。在一開始,你必須要在這裡先建一個"Organizational Units(組織單位)"跟一個GIT 的儲存庫。醬子以後建立的流程啊,規則啊,就可以歸屬在建立的"Organizational Units(組織單位)"之下了。
每個儲存庫裡面,我們就可以開始建立屬於自己這個單位的Project囉。




部署/版本管理 (Deploy)


這個功能還真的淺顯易懂,他會顯示你部署上去的專案,執行的方式等等.



流程管理(Process Management)


Process Definition

如果跟舊版的比較,這個就是舊版的jbpm-console, 也就是舊版的business central 中的 Process 那塊,所有server 上可以執行的流程都會顯示在這個地方。
可以透過它的界面看到流程的版本,可以執行流程,看流程的圖示,還有啓動這個流程需要的參數等等...







Process Instance

流程啓動後,在這裡可以看到每個啓動後instance。
而這個界面可以讓你去暫停啊,停止或是對這個流程發出Signal.
也可以看到現在跑道流程的哪裡...



最棒的是,現在不僅可以把目前Process variable 叫出來看,也可以修改喔~
(我想要這個功能好久了喔~~~)



任務執行/管理(Task)


這個就是使用者的人工介入畫面。如果你是使用jBPM 的 Form builder 給你的人工流程,那就是在這裡可以看到分配給你,或是你的群組的任務。

透過點選小鎖去取得任務,



然後就可以完成,或是跳過任務囉~。


儀表板(報表)界面 (Dashboards)


Process & Task Dashboard (流程與任務儀表板)

這裡面會顯示目前Server 跑的 Process 的總管理統計分析圖。


Business Dashboards (商業儀表板)

這裡讓使用者可以自由定義,去資料庫,或是檔案裝抓去data 然後畫出User 想要看得即時圖表。


以上,就是大致地介紹囉~謝謝收看。

I am very fortunate to talk in this great event, to talk about the things I have been working on and even discuss it with many. Also got lots of great ideas too. So here are the slide.

My first talk was with Thomas Qvarnström about how to handle large size data in JBoss Fuse and how JBoss Data Grid can help in the situation.

Here is the agenda of the talk, we will be talk about this in the up coming webinar on 24th Sept.

Integration often involves storing, retrieving, and transforming data. Using a traditional database in your integration is likely to becomes a bottleneck that is expensive and hard to …

Red Hat JBoss Fuse/A-MQ - Fuse and A-MQ Version 6.3 GA is released!

Fuse and A-MQ 6.3 GA has just went out. Maybe, you would think this is just only a minor version release why should I care? Hold your thoughts on that! Because they have done a lot of improvements and also added many new features into this release.

Besides various bug fixes and making sure Fuse Fabric is much more stable. There are two major change in this version update:

New Tooling in JBoss Developer Studio (JBDS) 9.1 GA. Newer Apache Camel version – Camel v2.17. I was really impressed by the work put in to make developing Camel application much simpler. First is the installation of tooling itself. Now it has a all-in-one installer so you don't need to worry about which plugins you need to check. See the videos below to see the new "Getting Started" of Fuse 6.3.



And If you notice from the above video, the presentation of camel route in JBDS has also updated. It fixed some of the miss representation of logic and making it easier to read.

Old Camel Route
New Camel Route
