Coach Views in IBM BPM v8.0

Coach Views are new feature in version 8.0 and enable reuse of custom, user-defined coach controls, sections and templates. In practice, this means that we can build one control for a certain business object and use it on multiple user interfaces in multiple human tasks. Because business processes are usually all about modifying a business object through a series of steps, performed by various participants, this is an extremely useful option which saves us a lot of redundant work.

In this blog we will take a look at how to build them and how to use them within coaches.

I have installed Integration Designer along with Process Server and BPM Process Center (PC) on the same virtual machine. After installation, I have first created a Process Server Profile and after and then a PC profile.
Creation of both profiles went smoothly and both profiles started normally. Then, I opened Process Center Console on the second profile and downloaded Process Designer (PD) installation files. I installed PD and tried to open it. And there was a surprise. Although I have just downloaded files from process center, which was therefore obviously running, PD has displayed the following error: “Attempt to connect to the Process Center failed. Verify that the server is running.”. (more…)

IBM Process Designer (PD) is a heritage of WebSphere Lombardi Edition and according to IBM enables you to model and implement your business processes and easily demonstrate process design and functionality during development efforts. In this post I will show you how to create and execute a simple process using PD.
