Business process management (BPM) constitutes one of the most exciting - search areas in computer science and the BPM Conference together with its workshops provides a distinct platform for presenting the latest research and showing future directions in this area. These proceedings contain the ?nal v- sions of papers accepted for the workshops held in conjunction with the 7th International Conference on Business Process Management (BPM 2009). The BPM 2009 conference and workshops took place in Ulm, Germany. We received many interesting workshop proposals, eight of which were selected. Ultimately the workshops ran on September 7, 2009 featuring highly interesting keynotes, inspiring scienti?c presentations, and fruitful discussions. The history of ?ve years of BPM workshops in a row proves the continued success of the workshop program. Theworkshopsheldin2009includedonenewworkshoponempiricalresearch in business process management and seven well-established workshops. First International Workshop on Empirical Research in Business Process Management(ER-BPM 2009). The ER-BPM 2009 workshop addressed the demand for empirical research methods such as experimental or case studies to BPM and invited fellow colleagues to investigate both the potential and the limitations of BPM methods and technologies in practice. The ER-BPM workshop aimed at closing the gap in knowledge on process management and at discussing empirical research in the space of BPM and associated phenomena. 12th International Workshop on Reference Modeling (RefMod 2009).

Being a Packt Beginner’s Guide, each chapter follows an easy to understand approach with plenty of screenshots and clear and concise steps to guide you throughout. This book is primarily intended for Business Analysts (BAs) who need to develop a process model for implementation in a Business Process Management system. The book assumes that you have basic knowledge of business analysis; however, no Activiti or Java knowledge is required.
Approached from a developer's perspective, the "jBPM 5 Developer Guide" teaches readers all the essentials of Business Process Management through applicable examples with helpful screenshots and diagrams. This book is for Java developers and Java architects who need to have a deep understanding of how Business Process Management frameworks behave in real-life implementations. The book introduces you to the jBPM5 and Drools Community where you can contribute; providing ideas, adding code, fixing issues, or providing documentation and examples. The book assumes that you know the Java language well and also know some widely used frameworks, for example Hibernate and Log4J. You should also know the basics of relational databases and the Eclipse IDE.
The book aims to speed up the reader in Java EE 5 development. All major Java EE 5 APIs and the details of the GlassFish server are covered followed by examples of its use. This book is aimed at Java developers wishing to become proficient with Java EE 5, who are expected to have some experience with Java and to have developed and deployed applications in the past, but need no previous knowledge of Java EE or J2EE. It teaches the reader how to use GlassFish to develop and deploy applications.
Presents the state of the technology and points to future directions for semantic computing Semantic computing, a rapidly evolving interdisciplinary field, seeks to structure, design, and manipulate computer content to better satisfy the needs and intentions of users and create a more meaningful user experience. This remarkable contributed work examines the art, engineering, technology, and applications of the field. Moreover, it brings together researchers from such disciplines as natural language processing, software engineering, multimedia semantics, semantic Web, signal processing, and pattern recognition in order to provide a single source that presents the state of the technology and points to new breakthroughs on the horizon. Semantic Computing begins with an introduction that explores the concepts, technology, applications, and future of semantic computing. Next, the book is divided into four parts: Part One: Semantic Analysis Part Two: Semantic Languages and Integration Part Three: Semantic Applications Part Four: Semantic Programming and Interface As readers progress through the book, they,ll learn not only the underlying science, but also the fundamental technological building blocks of semantic computing. Moreover, they,ll discover a variety of cross-disciplinary solutions to current computing and communication problems. Throughout the book, references to the primary literature enable further investigation of each individual topic. Semantic Computing is ideal for industrial managers, researchers, and engineers seeking to design the next generation of computing systems in order to better meet user needs. It is also recommended as a textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate-level semantic computing courses.

jBPM5 is a powerful, new open-source technology that takes a new approach to managing business process workflow. As the product is so cutting edge and there are few available resources to those who wish to use jBPM in their environments, A Practical Guide to jBPM5 by Venkataganesh Thoppae is invaluable as a resource. Thoppae's book is a simple, quick-start guide that anyone with basic understanding of Java, JEE, JBoss, Maven, MySQL (or any RDBMS), and eclipse will be able to understand and put to use immediately. The author notes that the book is not to be considered a "Bible" for jBPM5, but rather a companion to more in-depth books on the topic. Thoppae eschews detail and foundational philosophies for the nuts and bolts basics to get you up and running without costly lag time. The book is well organized with real-life examples of how jBPM5 works in the business process workflow environment. Easy-to-understand screenshots accompany each aspect of the how-to explanations, making the steps easy to put into play. A Practical Guide to jBPM5 will be an invaluable tool in making this new tool work for you.
A unifying foundation to design and implement process-aware information systems This publication takes on the formidable task of establishing a unifying foundation and set of common underlying principles to effectively model, design, and implement process-aware information systems. Authored by leading authorities and pioneers in the field, Process-Aware Information Systems helps readers gain a thorough understanding of major concepts, languages, and techniques for building process-aware applications, including: * UML and EPCs: two of the most widely used notations for business process modeling * Concrete techniques for process design and analysis * Process execution standards: WfMC and BPEL * Representative commercial tools: ARIS, TIBCO Staffware, and FLOWer Each chapter begins with a description of the problem domain and then progressively unveils relevant concepts and techniques. Examples and illustrations are used extensively to clarify and simplify complex material. Each chapter ends with a set of exercises, ranging from simple questions to thought-provoking assignments. Sample solutions for many of the exercises are available on the companion Web site. Armed with a new and deeper understanding, readers are better positioned to make their own contributions to the field and evaluate various approaches to a particular task or problem. This publication is recommended as a textbook for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in computer science and information systems, as well as for professionals involved in workflow and business process management, groupware and teamwork, enterprise application integration, and business-to-business integration. A Solution's Manual is available online. An Instructor Support FTP site is also available.
