Download Description

WITHDRAWN: Web Services are self-describing, self-contained, modular applications running on the Web for the benefit of enterprises who want to create innovative processes and value chains. The Web Service Process Management Toolkit (WSPMTK) combines business process management technology with Web Services and offers the tools and samples needed. The WSPMTK tools and samples complement Websphere MQ Workflow and allow you to create complex Web Services.

Web Service Process Management Toolkit (WSPMTK) allows you to:

» Compose Web Services into a business process

Composing Web Services allows you to choreograph the interaction of a set of Web Services within a business process and add control logic to the business process. For example, consider a book ordering process of an online book store: The first step of this process might be to check the credit card of a customer. If the credit card checking is favorable, the book is delivered and an e-mail is sent to confirm the order fulfillment. Checking the credit card is done through a Web Service, which is offered by a credit card company, and sending an e-mail is a Web Service provided by an e-mail provider. These Web Services can be plugged together into a Workflow process, allowing you to make the new e-business applications visible. With the WSPMTK you can choreograph Web Services and even other software components, for example, Java programs to combine both intranet and Internet components.

» Implement a Web Service as its own business process

Using a process as implementation for a Web Service allows you to compose complex Web Services with the characteristics of a process. To implement a Web Service as a business process you must create a process model and publish it as a Web Service. For example, the book ordering process could be provided as Web Service and published into UDDI using the WSTK. As soon as the Web Service is invoked, the process, which is published as a Web Service is executed unter the control of the process management system, Websphere MQ Workflow. Websphere MQ Workflow offers a message-based XML interface, which allows you to execute process instances. A process instance can invoke activity implementations by means of sending and receiving XML messages.
