Designing and developing systems based on a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) involves different approaches and perspectives ranging from process definition to individual service construction and architectural composition. The Eclipse STP top-level project provides several editors across the SOA space, including BPMN, BPEL, SCA, JBI, JAX-WS and Policy editors. Each editor covers part of the specification of a complete SOA system and it is essential that there be a consistent approach to unify all these parts into a coherent whole.
This webinar will introduce you to the STP Intermediate Model (STP-IM) component, a recent addition to Eclipse STP. STP-IM is meant as a "bridge" between editors. Its elements have the role of conceptual transport between different development spaces with the purpose to capture as much common SOA design information from different editors as possible. In particular, it aims to bridge the workflow and process world (BPMN / BPEL) with the architecture specification world (SCA / JBI) and the service creation world (such as JAX-WS). After a brief overview of the STP-IM structure, the webinar will continue with a practical demonstration of how the STP-IM can be leveraged when developing SOA elements with several STP editors.
