These reference modeling projects are examples of actual modeling projects that have been completed using WebSphere® Business Modeler. They represent a cross-section of industries, containing many elements and processes that are familiar to industry insiders. You can use these projects as a reference when deciding how to model processes for your own business or organization.
The modeling projects make use of a set of common elements contained in the Common Elements (ZIP, 16KB) project. Before using any of the sample projects, you must import the Common Elements (ZIP, 16KB) project into your workspace.
To import the sample projects into WebSphere Business Modeler Version 6.1.2, complete the following steps:
- Unzip the downloaded sample. After unzipping, you will have a .mar file containing the sample.
- In the Project Tree, right-click and select Import. The Import wizard appears.
- Select WebSphere Business Modeler project (.mar, .zip) and click Next. Click OK.
- Click Browse to select the source directory that contains the file you want to import.
- In the Files list, select the .mar file containing the project that you want to import.
- Optionally, to import the files faster, clear the Include simulation snapshots check boxes.
- Select Overwrite existing elements to replace any of the elements with the same name as an element being imported. Otherwise, you will be warned when an element is about to be overwritten.
- When you have finished specifying your import options, click Finish. A window opens when the import process is complete.
- If there were any errors or warnings during the import process, click Details to read them. Otherwise, click OK.
Important: If you choose to overwrite a catalog, be aware that the entire catalog and all of its contents will be deleted and the contents of the new catalog will be imported instead.
