STP/IM Component/Plug-in Structure

The following is a list of the plug-ins currently available in the SVN repository and their description.

Plug-in Name Description The intermediate model project EMF stuff Generated by EMF The emf editor for im files generated by EMF EMF Generated stuff This plugin realize the transformation BPM->IM ( The transformation is implemented in Java using relying on api from emf bpmn and im model ) Define a common repository where define resources that could be needed by Intermediate Model and provide extension point for exporting resources, and importing resources into this respoistory. At the moment this plugin provide the dialog to manage datasource type resource. Define the concept of Intermediate Model Runtime: A runtime define a set of services/service bindings that then we could drag and drop on bpmn diagram files. Provide some utility classes so it's possible to define static runtimes, based on xml configuration files. For example the predefined set of services offered by ESB could be defined in an xml file. Another exmaple of runtime, could be the set of activities offered by BPEL engine. BTW it's important to say that xml is only a way to define runtimes, but it's not the unique way, basically to define a new runtime you need only to write a plugin that use the extension point defined in this plugin and provide a class that implements the IRuntime interface. An example of runtime is provided by "" plugin Define the set of service/servicebindings offered by servicemix, using the xml configuration file. Extension to the BPMN editor:
  • Provided Technology Section in properties view, this section is used to choose a particular runtime for BPMN Pool.
  • Intermediate Model View. When you choose a runtime for a Pool the set of service service bindings provided by this, are showed in this view and you could do drag and drop on bpmn elements
  • Provided Intermediate Model Section. Once you drag and drop a Service/ServiceBinding on a BPMN element, this will create an annotation on BPMN Element containing the properties this service/servicebing need to work, in this section you're able to edit the properties defined by a particular service/servicebinding annotation.
