Part 1: Starting a New Process

Part 1: Starting a New Process

You can use Process Developer to design a process using top-down or bottom-up techniques. In the top-down technique, you sketch out your process by dropping down activities within a bounding box that automatically contains sequenced activities. You then add all the necessary information to bind the activities to an implementation and add decision-making to make your sketch a working process. In the bottom-up technique, you use the definitions of the implementation that are available when you begin process creation. This tutorial covers both design techniques.
After completing Part 1 of the tutorial, you will be able to:
  • Create a new orchestration project.
  • Understand the nature of an orchestration project.
  • Create a new process document in the Tutorial orchestration project.
  • Familiarize yourself with the Process Developer tools that help you create a valid process.

Note:
The illustrations of dialog boxes and wizards (for example, font and button color) that you will see in this tutorial can look different from one version of Eclipse to another and your operating system may also display them differently than are shown here.
