Learn how to incorporate workflow processing in business applications

Developing Workflow Applications with Red Hat® JBoss® BPM Suite with exam (JB428) is for developers and architects who wish to incorporate workflow processing in business applications.

This course includes the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Business Process Design exam (EX427).

Course Overview

Through hands-on labs, the student will learn the architecture and features of Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite, basic and advanced business process modeling (BPMN 2.0), and integration of workflow into Java SE and Java EE applications. In addition to creating workflow applications, the student will learn how to unit test and debug those applications using Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio. Students will learn how to deploy a business process and monitor its runtime state.

Course content summary

  • Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite 6 architecture and features
  • Basic and advanced business process modeling
  • Integrating workflow into applications
  • Testing and debugging BPM applications

Impact of this training

Impact on the organization

This course is intended to develop the skills needed to create business logic as business processes, using a graphical notation, without requiring software development skills. The result should be faster time to market, increased visibility of the specific business processes implemented by an application, and lower risk of interpretation errors that would lead to application errors.

Red Hat has created this course in a way intended to benefit our customers, but each company and infrastructure is unique, and actual results or benefits may vary.

Impact on the individual

As a result of attending this course, students should be able to develop, test, and integrate workflow processing using business process modeling expressed in the standard Business Processing Modeling Notation (BPMN 2.0) graphical language.

Students should be able to demonstrate the following skills:

  • Design BPMN diagrams using JBoss Developer Studio
  • Integrate BPMN processes with Java or Java EE applications
  • Debug BPMN processes
  • Handle human tasks and exception flows in a BPMN process
  • Monitor, simulate and optimize BPMN process execution
