Save the date: we'll be presenting the future of Enterprise Low-Code Development: GeneXus 17.

Version: GeneXus 17

GeneXus BPM Suite course
/*The videos recorded in previous versions are valid for GeneXus 17.*/

Data entry with dynamic forms

Dynamic forms enables us to create screens for data entry directly from the workflow client and associate them to interactive tasks, in runtime, without the need to write lines of code.

Instead of redesigning the application and creating new GeneXus objects to enter data, we may create dynamic forms and adapt them in runtime to store information, without the need to modify the application’s database. This is particularly useful when we must save data relative to a given process that was not provided for in the original workflow, where we must include information that is only related to each instance in the process. Dynamic forms enable us to store that information in workflow, making database structures for this type of information unnecessary.

Lessons

Presentation

Welcome to the online GeneXus BPM Suite course!

With these videos you will learn how to model business processes using the GeneXus Business Process Modeler (GXBPM), to then associate the model’s elements with GeneXus objects by using GeneXus, in order to make the model into a functional application. And lastly, we will execute the application and monitor its functioning using the client GXflow.
 
It is our recommendation that you replicate the examples shown in the videos. For the videos of the chapter Modeling the Business Process you will need to use the GXBPM, available for downloading here.  For the following stages of the course you will need to install GeneXus, available for downloading here. The GXflow client will be automatically installed with the installation of GeneXus.

In addition to replicating the examples, you have available a document with practice exercises. These practical exercises will allow you to extend practical knowledge, experimenting with other exercises.

The time necessary for watching all videos corresponding to this course is approximately 3 hours. The unit duration for each video is detailed here.

And lastly, for all those interested, in the page corresponding to each video is a document with the corresponding script.

We would like you to make the most of this training!

More information

Objective:
Learn the concepts necessary to model and execute business processes using the GeneXus suite for BPM.

The Business Process Modeler is applied throughout the course to model processes as per the BPMN standard, to then apply GeneXus in associating the model’s elements with GeneXus objects to make the model a functional application. The application is then executed and its operation is monitored through the GXflow client.

The workflow data types will be presented, which allow communicating with the workflow engine to carry out different activities, for example creating a process instance, executing a workitem, modifying the relevant data of a workflow instance among other functionalities. We will also see the GXflow custom client which allows us to customize the entire GXflow client.
