Version: GeneXus 18

GeneXus BPM Suite course

Introduction to business process modeling based on the BPMN standard

This video shows how to use GeneXus to model processes based on BPMN standard, and all the possibilities for modeling business processes based on that standard.

The air ticket reservation’s main process is modeled, recording the reservation data according to the passenger’s requests, destination, registry of passenger as customer, validation of the reservation and notices to user in case of acceptance or rejection of reservation.



With these videos, you will learn how to model business processes using GeneXus Business Process Modeler (GXBPM).
Then, using GeneXus, you will associate the elements of the model to GeneXus objects to turn the model into a functional application.
Lastly, you will run the application and monitor its operation with the GXflow client.

It is recommended that you replicate the examples shown in the videos. For the Business process modeling chapter, you can use GXBPM which can be downloaded from here. For the following stages of the course, you will have to install GeneXus. It can be downloaded from here. To work with users and roles, you will need a full version. The GXflow client will be automatically installed whn you install GeneXus.

In addition to replicating the examples, you also have available a document with practical exercises. This document will allow you to expand your knowledge by experimenting with other exercises.

Finally, in the page of each video, you will find a document with the corresponding script.
We hope you make the most of this training!
