    IBM WebSphere Process Server, and the accompanying IBM WebSphere Integration Developer development tool, provide a vast array of powerful features for building business process solutions. But how can you use those features for your organization? This IBM Redbooks publication takes a scenario-based approach to demonstrate these product features and employs the IBM Patterns for e-business to illustrate proven business process patterns.

    Part 1 of this book introduces the Patterns for e-business. The Patterns for e-business are a group of proven, reusable assets that can be used to increase the speed of developing and deploying On Demand Business applications. This book focuses on the Serial and Parallel Process patterns from the asset catalog.

    Part 2 describes the business scenario used in this book. It also explains the key technologies that are relevant to the scenarios.

    Part 3 guides you through the building of business process solutions in WebSphere Integration Developer for deployment to WebSphere Process Server. It includes the use of Web Services Business Process Execution Language (WS-BPEL) business processes, business state machines, and other product features. Four solutions are described, each adhering to a separate pattern. Each solution includes architectural considerations for designing the solution and step-by-step instructions for building the scenario.
