Become Familiar with Process Language and Technology

Processes has no prerequisites. However, it’s helpful if you’re familiar with the following technologies, especially if you plan to integrate with applications outside of Processes:

  • Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN), the standard language for process applications.

    Processes is based on BPMN, but some of the standards have been simplified for greater usability.

  • Web Services Description Language (WSDL), a standard way of describing a web service provider to a web service consumer. You can expose process applications as web services and communicate with web services outside of Processes.

  • Representational State Transfer (REST), an architecture style for designing lightweight, stateless, networked applications that use Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). Processes has a REST API that you can use to integrate with other applications.
