Friends of Eclipse,
Eclipse is an open source community that benefits millions of developers around the world each and every day! During the month of September, we are asking you to give back to our wonderful open source community. All donations will be used to improve Eclipse technology. Your contribution counts!
We thank you for this gesture, and for giving back to our community.
This page provides links to a series of self-learning videos (YouTube and downloadable) to learn how to use Stardust or IPP. It is recommended to perform the trainings of a single learning unit in the presented order.
In this unit you learn the "basics": How to configure the environment. In the second video you learn the setup of a basic project. Eclipse is a very powerful and complex development environment, so obviously we cannot give a general introduction to Eclipse, but you will learn what you need for starting modeling. In the following video, you learn how to create an easy process model in the Business Process Management Notation.
YouTube Playlist: Getting Started
|Environment Setup (10 Minutes)||Learn how to setup an environment for all IPP projects.|
|Project Setup (12 minutes)||Learn how to setup a your first IPP project. Note: With recent releases you no longer choose facets manually when installing a Dynamic Web Project (as shown in the video), but select "Infinity Portal" in the combo box "Configuration".|
|First BPMN Process Model (15 Minutes)||Learn how to create your first process model in the Business Process Management Notation.|
Modeling is an important and in most cases the first part in the BPM lifecycle. Therefore the second unit starts with a bit more complex modeling after the first example in the preceding unit. A scenario to be found in most organizations is a helpdesk. While components of a business process - likeroles and various organizations - can be demonstrated, the process model is not overly complex.
Finally we show you the simulation functionality of IPP in two videos.
Process simulation allows a process model to be tested for performance characteristics without actually deploying the process. Each simulation run is a hypothetical (what-if) test that varies parameters such as work volume, worker availability, etc. to provide a performance summary of the process design under those conditions. Some parameters are set to fixed values. Other parameters are allowed to change within a range of possible values just as they would in real life. In effect, the simulation run shrinks the scale of real time (weeks, months, years etc.) to just a few seconds, minutes or hours to predict long term process behavior without the time and cost of actual deployment and observation.

Most videos are about the IPP portal functionality, which is offered in a unified portal with several perspectives. It replaces the several portals which where used until version 5.
The End User Portal is what the seen by the this type of user, it is the interface to the solution. It is highly configurable, which is one of the strengths of IPP. The exact view depends on the process models and on the role of the user. It can be configured to adhere to style guidelines of a company. Nevertheless, the look & feel on a little more abstract level and usage patterns stay the same. Therefore the videos are useful also for end users that work with a solution build with the IPP portal.

The video presents a model configured to support departments, shows how to create departments and assign users to them and presents a processing scenario, where work items are assigned to participants based on process data.

Infinity Process Platform offers an advanced Scan Client that can access several professional scanning devices. This Scan Client is .NET based an hence cannot be published via Eclipse but is available under the Infinity Process Platform maintenance model.

The following training videos explain how Stardust can be used for case management and grouping of business processes.

Infinity Process Platform comes with a TIFF Viewer/Editor fully integrated in the Infinity Process Platform portal. This video shows how to use it:
