IBM Business Process Manager Advanced 8.5.6 - My first hands-on

Given that it's been available for ~1 week, I'm perhaps late to the party, BUT I do have an excuse - I was on holiday until Monday.

Anyhow, I've now had a quick "play" with IBM BPM Advanced 8.5.6, specifically in terms of installing the binaries.

I'd previously blogged about 8.5.6 here: -



so I've now downloaded 8.5.6 Advanced for Linux, as per this: -


specifically these three files: -

-rw-r--r--@  1 hayd  staff  1867942208 18 Mar 08:57 BPM_Adv_V856_Linux_x86_1_of_3.tar.gz
-rw-r--r--@  1 hayd  staff  2834717864 18 Mar 11:57 BPM_Adv_V856_Linux_x86_2_of_3.tar.gz
-rw-r--r--@  1 hayd  staff   777054803 18 Mar 06:41 BPM_Adv_V856_Linux_x86_3_of_3.tar.gz


which I then unpacked: -

mkdir /tmp/Repo/BPM856
cd /tmp/Repo/BPM856
for i in /mnt/hgfs/DownloadDirector/*.tar.gz; do tar xvzf $i; done


and then created a series of response files to allow IBM Installation Manager ( aka IIM ) to install the binaries, as per the following examples: -

Install Process Center

/opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl input installBPM856_PC.rsp -acceptLicense

Installed 8.5.0.0-WS-WASJavaSDK-LinuxX64-IFPI35615_8.5.0.20150224_1408 to the /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer directory.
Installed 8.5.5.5-WS-WAS-IFPI35502_8.5.5005.20150225_1959 to the /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer directory.
Installed 8.5.5.5-WS-WASProd-IFPI35667_8.5.5005.20150225_1021 to the /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer directory.
Installed com.ibm.websphere.ND.v85_8.5.5005.20150220_0158 to the /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer directory.
Installed com.ibm.websphere.IBMJAVA.v70_7.0.8010.20150219_1802 to the /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer directory.

Add Basic Case Management

/opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools/imcl input installBPM856_CM.rsp -acceptLicense

Modified com.ibm.bpm.ADV.v85_8.5.6000.20150304_1832 in the /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer directory.

which I then validated as follows: -

AdvancedProcessServer.NonProduction
Case.Management


It's worth noting that: -

(1) We now get the latest WAS, 8.5.5.5, as default
(2) BPM now supports Java7, as well as the older Java6
(3) Basic Case Management is an optional add-on - it's also a separate license/PVU/cost, over and above Advanced

I'll now play around with the configuration of BPM, using the BPMConfig.sh script to build out a Deployment Environment.

Meantime, here's the Response Files that I've created for Process Center, Process Server and Basic Case Management: -
