With the Process Integration Scenario editor you can display and edit a Process Integration Scenario. In the interactive graphical work area, you can visualize the Process Integration scenario as a Component View. In a component view, you can display the process flow of a Process Integration scenario and assign other objects, which define how messages are exchanged.

You can define multiple component views  for a Process Integration scenario.


You have created a new Process Integration scenario or have opened an existing one.


If multiple component views are defined for one Process Integration scenario, you can select one component view after you have opened the Process Integration scenario editor (see: Defining Multiple Component Views for One Process Integration Scenario).


In the work area of the Process Integration scenario editor, the name of the selected component view is displayed in the Component View Name field. At the bottom of the screen area there is an interactive graphical interface that you can use to visualize the process flow of the Process Integration scenario and to assign all the required objects (component view). The structure of the component view is shown schematically in the following graphic. It also includes the various context-sensitive areas and the most important functions that can be called from the context menu.

Component View and Context-Sensitive Areas

This graphic is explained in the accompanying text


The Process Integration scenario objects are displayed in the Process Integration Scenario editor as follows:

      Application components are portrayed as colored vertical columns. The colors of the columns are defined according to color conventions.

      The application component column has a header where the role, the name of the product with its release (product version), and the extended name are displayed.

      Actions are portrayed as white rectangles within an application component. The vertical progression of actions from top to bottom corresponds to the logical process flow.

      Sequences are shown as vertical lines with an arrowhead beside the subsequent action. The sequence determines the order in which the actions are executed (see Connection).

      Synchronous Connections are displayed graphically with horizontal lines with two arrow heads. The two actions involved are on the same level in the graphic. This shows that the actions that are connected by such a connection are synchronized chronologically.

      Asynchronous Connections are displayed graphically as with bent lines with an arrow head beside the subsequent action. The two actions involved here are not on the same level in the graphic. The subsequent action must be beneath the source action. This shows that the actions that are connected by such a connection are independent of each other and are not synchronized chronologically.

Functions for Assigning Objects and Defining a Connection

To assign Process Integration Scenario objects, call the functions specified below from the context menu. To call a function, position the cursor on a particular area within the business scenario. The individual context-sensitive areas are represented in the business scenario (see above). To call the editor to display or change an object, double click the object in question in the business scenario.
