Hello every body,
I am a new webmethods user, I just finished to attend a webmethods 7.1.2 BPM course and I have some questions that I need to get answers. It helps me to understand very well almost all components, tools and concepts related to WebMethods 7.1.2.
Any tip and answer will be appreciated and helpful
:!: START THE INTEGRATION SERVER, BROKER AND MWS:
#What is the url for the IS Server ?
#what is the url for my webMethods Server ?
#Why is the broker monitor set to Automatic start, but not the broker server?
:!: PACKAGES AND FOLDERS:
#If you place the folders in the wrong parent folder, how could you correct it?
#Why is a consistent folder structure in all packages important?
:!: CREATE A SERVICE:
#Why is the order of the services important?
#How many inputs can the pub.string:concat service accept?
#Where would the server log appear if the server is not running through the Command Prompt?
:!: DOCUMENT TYPES:
#What is the benefit of using a schema forimport over using a DTD?
#What are the two ways to intend a document type element under another?
:!: FLOW SERVICES -BRANCH:
#When are regular expressions useful in branch?
#Can you combine a switch variable woth Evaluate labels=true?
#Why use Trace to test branch logic instead of Run?
:!: BUILDING FLOW SERVICES- LOOP:
#What would happen if the MAP and debugLog steps were not intented under the Loop?
#Does Loop have a limit?
#Why do you want to use document references rather than creating the document in the service input?
:!: BUILDING FLOW SERVICES-SEQUENCE:
#Rather than using a service you know will fail, how can you throw an Exeption in Flow?
#When we create a business logic for a Try/Catch using a sequence in a flow service called ABC, we want also create a service, called DEF, that will return an exception, and then embed that service in a Try/Catch. What happen if the ABC service flow works (doesn’t fail)?
:!: MAPPING SERVICE:
Context: we created a service that maps from one data format to another using the document types we created peviously
#How is a transformer different from a normal service?
#What if the transformer you want to use is not in the transformer drop-down list?
#why did we need to LOOP over a document type created previously? Why not just map from this same document type to other document list?
:!: MONITORING BUSINESS PROCESSES:
Context:Using My WebMethods to track the execution of services.
#Why is it necesseray to create remote server aliases?
#Under what circumstances would it be acceptable to resubmit a service? Why?
:!: VALIDATION SERVICE:
Context:We created a business logic in order to validate an inbound Purchase Order, we tested to verify that the line items in Purchase Order have a valid quantity. Then we will flag the order as invalid for follow up by a customer service representative.
#Why we need to set isValid to true at the very beginning? is there a better way?
#is there another way we could have validated this particular value with writing Flow or Java?
:!: CREATE A FLAT FILE SCHEMA:
Context: We created , configured and tested a Flat File Schema object to parse flat files.
#Why can’t flat files be imported like XML documents?
#What is the meaning of Nth field?
:!: CREATE A FLAT FILE DICTIONARY
#What is the difference between a dictionary and a schema?
#Why we should create the IS document type when the schema is complete?
:!: CREATE WEB SERVICE DESCRIPTORS AND CUSTOMS FAULT:
#What would we create a Provider WSD or a Consumer WSD ?
#How and when are WSC’s created ?
#Can we have more than one custom SOAP Fault Document?
:!: BROKER Pub/Sub:
#What happen when a document is made publishable?
#What would be the appropriate production settings for publishable properties Discard and Time to Live if the Storage type = Garanteed? ?
#What two objects are required for publishing?
#What three objects are required for subscribing?
#Why were we required to use the full document type name as argument name in the flow service created before?
:!: JMS Pub/Sub:
#What is a topic versus a queue?
#Where is a topic created and confugured for use with IS (2 places)?
#What two objects are required for publishing ?
#What three objects are required for subscribing ?
:!: CREATE ADAPTER SERVICES :
Context: We created 2 insert adapter services, 2 select adapter services, and a parent flow to easily work with data in a database.
#What administratrive activity must be done prior to using adapter service templates?
#Why is it important to specify the LOOP input array before mapping the fields of insertOrderDetails adapter?
#What is automatically created and updated when you work with your notification service?
#What occurs when the notification schedule is enabled?
#Why is the notification schedule an administration task?
:!: USE SERVICES IN A BUSINESS PROCESS:
#Why do we need to create swimlanes within a process? What effect do they have on the execution of the process ?
#What occurs throughout the system when you perform a build and upload from designer?
#What are the different start mechanisms for a process?
:!: MONITORING A BUSINESS PROCESS:
Why would our process already be enabled in My WebMethods Server (when we view it there for the first time?
Many thanks to all of you and best regards
