This section gives an overview of what you should note when modeling Process Integration scenarios and supports you when designing them. Furthermore, it provides you with background knowledge about the modeling concept and design decisions in the Enterprise Services Builder (Enterprise Services Repository).
A Process Integration scenario models the complete exchange of messages for a collaborative process and provides an overview of the process flow. The advantages of defining Process Integration Scenarios in the Enterprise Services Builder (design tool) are as follows:
● The Process Integration Scenario provides you with an overview of the process and the process flow.
● The Process Integration scenario combines all objects that are involved in this process: interface objects, mapping objects, executable integration processes from the Enterprise Services Repository, and product versions from the System Landscape Directory.
You can access all of these objects from the Process Integration Scenario.
● The Process Integration Scenario contains all design time information about the process that is required for its configuration. If you have defined a Process Integration scenario, you can use this as a template for configuration. The relevant objects are predominantly created automatically. For more complex collaborative processes the use of Process Integration scenarios enables you to clearly design the configuration.
Use the above as your starting point when defining and modeling Process Integration scenarios.
The sections below contain detailed information about what you must note when modeling the individual components of the Process Integration scenarios:
