1 TUTORIAL STARTS 7PM “THE MOVIE QUOTES GAME IS BACK!” 1 1.Identify the movie (Easy!) 2.Spot the odd-quote-out (Harder!) 3.Who said what? (Geek level!)

2 START RECORDING! Recordings in various formats will be available in a few days Check out the Tutor Group Forums for: Recording links Copies of slides Any follow up questions and answers Please use the chat box for chat! (Note to Karl: Check max. simultaneous talkers) 2

3 T320 TUTORIAL FOUR REVIEW, BPMN, BPEL AND THE WORKPLAN 3

4 PROPOSED AGENDA Where are we? TMA03 Feedback Why BPMN /BPEL? Approaches to the EMA Any Questions? Important dates 4 Any questions, please click the “raise your hand” icon Then type question in chat box Or use microphone!

5 PROPOSED UN-AGENDA(?) The practical work Everyone is at a different stage Thoroughly described in Block material Excellent support from the appropriate national forums Best worked through at your own pace (IMHO) Check out the T320 Website for extra tutorials Especially the recording of Nick & Michelle’s BPEL tutorial (July 9 th ) The EMA in detail Tutorial on September 16th 5

6 WHERE ARE WE? “ASPS! VERY DANGEROUS. YOU GO FIRST” 6

7 OVERVIEW 7 Block 1 – E-Business in context Block 2 – Protocols and Data Block 3 – Web Services Block 4 – Business Processes TMA01 TMA02 TMA03 E M A pt 2 EMA pt 1 You Are Here You Are Here

8 TMA03 FEEDBACK “COME ON! SHOW A LITTLE BACKBONE, WILL YA?” 8

9 TMA03 – LESSONS FOR THE EMA Thank you all for your hard work! Many successful implementations, well documented Reports – Organisation is key! Use tables and diagrams for clarity Match headings to mark scheme Check terminology (see glossaries in block material) Revision prior to starting the EMA? Probably not necessary Re-visit only if unsure about architecture or standards and terminology Manage your references Consider functionality already in word processor 9

10 WHY BPMN AND BPEL? “DR. JONES. AGAIN WE SEE THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN POSSESS WHICH I CANNOT TAKE AWAY.” 10

11 WHEN I WERE A LAD… We didn’t have no fancy “Process Modelling Notations” We had Systems Analysts what wrote “Requirements Specifications” An’ then we had other Analysts what turned ‘em into “Functional Specifications” An’ Lead Designers turned them into “Design Documents” That Programmers used to write “Program Code” An for every document there were a correspondin’ “Test Specification”! But tell that to young ‘uns these days… And they don’t believe you! 11

12 MORE PROPERLY: 12

13 THE ‘V’ MODEL OF SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT Is well understood Easy to manage Specialisation of skills BUT: There is an enormous “distance” between the actual business problem and its IT solution Many areas for misunderstanding / mis-communication Very late to “close the loop” for feedback Hard to make changes / fix problems 13

14 BPMN & BPEL 14 Business “Owner”Business Analyst Software Developer Built on a foundation of … Lots of well defined, available web services… BPMN BPEL

15 TO SUMMARISE BPMN is a diagramming technique readily understandable by those familiar with the “business” There is a fairly straight-forward process to turn this into executable BPEL Some low level design choices to be made, e.g. how to implement conditions; error handling etc. But: It relies on the existence of lots of existing, well defined, well understood web services Without these, it becomes another traditional development as each service must be defined and built 15

16 EMA OVERVIEW “WE HAVE TOP MEN WORKING ON IT RIGHT NOW” “WHO?” “TOP…MEN” 16

17 EMA SECTION 1 Introduction and Conclusion – 10 marks As per previous TMAs, esp. TMA01 (See next slide) E-Business Evolution – 18 marks Material from block 1 E-Business Adoption – 19 marks Material from block 1 & TMA01 Reflection on Work Plan – marks No right/wrong answer, say sensible things! Look carefully at the mark breakdown! 17

18 EMA SECTION 2 XML schema and instance documents - 5 marks Very similar to parts of TMA02 XML solution discussion - 10 marks Material from Block 2 Evidence of BPEL orchestration solution Stage 1 only - 8 marks Similar to block 4 practicals 1a, 1b, 2 & 3 Stage 1 & marks Includes items from other block 4 practicals BPEL orchestration discussion – 12 marks Material from block 4 Look carefully at the mark breakdown! 18

19 WORKPLAN – SOME EXAMPLES “I’M GOING AFTER THAT TRUCK” “HOW?” “I DON’T KNOW, I’M MAKING THIS UP AS I GO” 19

20 EXAMPLE 1 20

21 EXAMPLE 2 21

22 EXAMPLE 3 22

23 EXAMPLE 4 23

24 APPROACH TO THE PLAN As a minimum, you need: Something to hand in … …That contains enough to sensibly reflect on! “Begin. Do Project. Hand in Project. End” NOT sufficient So you might as well make it useful… I suggest at least 10 separate tasks Include rough timescales (in weeks perhaps?) Note any dependencies between tasks But don’t go overboard! Balance doing with planning! Finally, start (and keep up to date) a project diary This will help with your reflection 24

25 APPROACHES TO THE EMA “WHAT IS IT MISTAH JONES?” “FORTUNE AND GLORY KID, FORTUNE AND GLORY” 25

26 WHERE TO START? 1.Work through in order Good for the methodical No problem with dependencies 2.Hardest first Might be demoralising (or uplifting!) Might find dependency problem 3.Easiest first Might be uplifting (or demoralising!) 4.A little bit of everything at once Work until you get stuck, move on elsewhere Maybe good if you have missed parts of the course 26

27 SOME SUGGESTIONS… Read the EMA material NOW! Then do the workplan, submit by the 31 st Start the XML schema and data part A “stand-alone” part of the EMA, worth 15 marks Similar to TMA02 but with more scope for structuring and re-use. Think about your data types! Complete block 4 Get a feel for BPMN / BPEL Then, either: Start the report section Try the practical (BPEL) parts of the project 27

28 EMA TIPS (FOR NEXT TIME…) “BALLOQ’S STAFF IS TOO LONG.” “THEY’RE DIGGING IN THE WRONG PLACE!” 28

29 (EMA TIPS – 1) Hand Something in! No submission = definite fail Submission = possible pass! There are no tricks or traps! You can take everything you see at “face value” Word count limits But not too challenging – 2500 “content” words Organise your report to help your marker! Follow suggested headings in EMA Booklet 1 Page 10 Carefully read (and follow) “What to submit” EMA Booklet 1 Page 12 29

30 (EMA TIPS – 2) The deadline is fixed, no submission possible after cut-off But unlimited submissions allowed before that So submit early versions in case of problems later Only the most recent version will be marked Keep up to date with the T320 website Check the news section Take a quick look through the EMA forums Strongly recommend doing this about 1 week before deadline Check that you haven’t missed anything 30

31 (GETTING HELP) Read the national forums Your question may have already been asked! Post in the national forums Try to provide detailed information, specific question But not your actual answers(!) me – I can answer two types of question: “Have I understood the question?” (Yes or no only!) “Can you help with this very specific problem?” Don’t get fixated, or give up! Move on to other parts of the EMA 31

32 ANY QUESTIONS? “LOOK AT THIS. IT’S WORTHLESS — TEN DOLLARS FROM A VENDOR IN THE STREET. BUT I TAKE IT, I BURY IT IN THE SAND FOR A THOUSAND YEARS, IT BECOMES PRICELESS. ” 32

33 SPACE FOR DIAGRAMS 33

34 IMPORTANT DATES (POINTS TO DEAD MONKEY) “BAD DATES.” 34

35 THANK YOU FOR WATCHING! EMA Part 1 Submission Date July 31st EMA Part 2 Submission Date October 3rd No extensions are possible! (from me, anyway) If there are circumstances beyond your control that may affect your ability to complete the EMA properly Submit a PT39 “Special Circumstances” Form BEFORE THE DEADLINE Any questions or problems Check the Tutor Group Forum for slides & recordings Next tutorial Tuesday September 15th 35
