Partner Webcast – Oracle on Serverless Computing: Developing FaaS with Oracle Fn Project

It is probably one of the most wrongly named idea in the world of IT (what do you mean ‘serverless’, there are no servers? Where should I run my code then?) which is quite likely to take the current and future cloud by storm. The concept is simple – you don’t pay for cloud infrastructure (in fact you don’t care about IaaS at all, thus the confusing ‘serverless’), you rent it for each invocation of your business logic and immediately release after that so it can be used by someone else. This gives you massive scalability and absolutely no worries about picks and fluctuations in demand. What’s even more appealing businesswise - your bill is directly linked to your success (pay per invocation), no fixed or upfront costs. In fact, ‘serverless’ does not really equal FaaS (Function-as-a-Service), the latter being one of the propositions to solve the scalability and cost efficiency issues which still linger even in the modern cloud solutions. And here comes the catch - adopting FaaS is quite a brave architectural decision. You will need a platform which gets you there without falling into common pitfalls and makes you productive regardless of programming language you are skilled in. FN: Container-Native Serverless Platform, the FnProject, is an open source, cloud agnostic, serverless platform by Oracle which aims to solve all the infancy issues of the FaaS. It is 100% portable, polyglot platform based on containers to deliver the same experience regardless of where the function is being deployed: on the developer’s laptop or in the huge production cluster in the cloud. One of its unique features is the FDK, especially Fn Flow API which provides elegant and functional way to compose functions (inspired by Java’s CompletionStage and CompletableFuture constructs). In this webcast we will show how to get started with FnProject how to create and run functions both on your laptop and in the cloud. We will also shed some light on the future of the Oracle serverless computing platform which will be based on FnProject. Agenda: What is serverless and why it matters to your business? Introduction to FaaS (and what will happen to my microservice architecture after adopting FaaS) FnProject, basic facts and concepts Demo – developing and running Fn functions Oracle Functions, present and future of the Oracle Serverless Cloud offering Wrap-up - Q&A Presenter:  Lukasz Romaszewski - FMW and Cloud Specialist, Oracle Innovation and Modernization Center Poland Delivery Format This FREE online LIVE eSeminar will be delivered over the Web.

Partner Webcast – Enterprise ready production microservices on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Container Engine for Kubernetes

There is a huge shift in application development where containerisation has become very popular with the move away from monolith application to microservices. Containers provide a level of isolation that, although not fully multi-tenant, can prevent applications from causing problems with other applications running on the same physical host. As containers grow in organisations, management of these containers becomes a problem and raises a need for container orchestration to help manage these containers. Kubernetes is the most popular container orchestration tool available and is maintained by one of the fastest-growing open-source communities. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Container Engine for Kubernetes is a fully-managed, scalable, and highly available service that you can use to deploy your containerised applications to the cloud. Use Container Engine for Kubernetes when your development team wants to build, deploy, and manage cloud-native applications reliably. You specify the compute resources that your applications require, and Container Engine for Kubernetes provisions them on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure in an existing OCI tenancy. Getting a Kubernetes cluster up and running, let alone a production ready one, has not historically been quite as straightforward. Please join us as we go through setting up a Kubernetes cluster on OCI, as we dive head first into the capabilities and benefits in a simple, intuitive and highly educational manner.

Partner Webcast – Building event driven microservices with Oracle Event Hub CS

If we are about to pick one word which would characterize the microservice approach, it would probably be the word freedom. It is all about freedom to change, freedom to deploy at any time, finally freedom to replace with a completely new technology stack when needed. The latter ability is actually the key driving architectural principle for microservices, which can be summarized as built to be replaced (in a contrast with the built to be reused SOA approach). Such freedom can be achieved only if we truly decouple each microservice at all levels from other services it interacts with. One of the most effective ways to provide such decoupling is using asynchronous communication between services. There are numerous asynchronous broker platforms available, both commercial and open source, but the market seems to favor Apache Kafka as de-facto standard technology and key enabler for the modern EDA (Event Driven Architecture) solutions. Kafka provides very efficient way to publish and subscribe to events and it is designed to be easily scaled, starting from small pilot deployments up to planet scale distributed systems. Having that said Kafka – being rather low level technology building block – is quite complex in terms of design and maintenance. The efficient and scalable architecture of Kafka makes it at the same time difficult to deploy and run on the same platform (e.g. Docker or Kubernetes) as consuming microservices, mainly because it does not comply with the 12 factor principles of stateless applications. Therefore it is common nowadays to find Kafka being rather an infrastructure element, and not just another service, especially in the dynamic cloud deployments. Oracle Event Hub Cloud Service follows precisely this approach. It provides an easy way to create and manage Kafka clusters for numerous other platform services and custom applications. As an architectural building block it enables various scenarios, starting from asynchronous communication patterns between the cloud native applications, data and service integration between cloud and on-premise deployments, serving as an efficient Big Data streaming channel and up to being used as a main event hose in the IoT world. We kindly invite you to this webinar during which you will learn how to configure and manage the OEHCS Kafka cluster and how to use it to provide reliable asynchronous event broker between microservices deployed in the Oracle Cloud.

Partner Webcast – Oracle Modern Application Development for Enterprises

Today’s global marketplace dictates that every organization - from large to small and across all industries - can only remain relevant through successful digital initiatives. These initiatives can span anything from mobile and chatbots, blockchain, artificial intelligence, customer experience, to cost reduction and much more. It is therefore imperative to be able to ‘do digital’ quickly, at low cost and across a variety of projects running in parallel. It is also important to shake away ‘old world’ habits and instead embrace a new digital character and new ways to execute. To deliver significant business value, digital organizations must develop unique systems of innovation. This is because custom development allows for greater control to deliver software capabilities that matter to the business and help differentiate from competition. It allows for speed to deciding on the roadmap, executing and adjusting. Cloud platforms can take away the complexities – leaving coders to code and deploy instead of setting up development infrastructure. Developers can now release new capabilities at higher quality and at speed, via a streamlined and integrated ‘Continuous Integration’ and ‘Continuous Delivery’ mechanism that delivers automation, reliability and repeatability of software releases. Join us in this webcast to learn more about how Oracle Cloud Application Development is helping developers to build new systems of innovation and adopt modern technologies easier and faster.

Creating a Custom Component in Oracle JET

Introduction Oracle JET (JavaScript Extension Toolkit) is a collection of open source libraries for JavaScript developers to develop client-side applications. It comes with lots of responsive components and layouts. You can explore them in Oracle JET's cookbook here. There could be cases when you need to create and use your custom components in Oracle JET. In this post, I will create a simple component and register it to be able to use it in my JET application.   Requirements Netbeans 8.1 with JET plugin installed. (You can visit this link to configure it). Oracle JET QuickStart Application created. (New Project -> Samples -> HTML5/JS -> Oracle JET QuickStart Basic).   Get Started Suppose that I have a requirement to create a component to place my links inside and specify link names dynamically as a component attribute. Let's see it. Below is the view that represents the component. It renders an array of links based on the names array. This array will be defined later when I create the viewModel of the component. <div>   <ul data-bind="foreach: names">             <li>                 <a data-bind="text: $data, attr: { id: 'id_' + $index() }"></a>             </li>   </ul> </div> Create the folder structure <site_root>/js/composites/my-comp and put my-comp.html there. I will refer to that location as <comp_home>. Add some CSS to it. Put my-comp.css in  <comp_home>. my-comp ul {     list-style: none;     background-color: #79a6d2;     overflow: hidden;     margin: 0;     padding: 0; } my-comp li {   float: left;   padding: 5px;   color: white; } my-comp li:hover {   background-color: #111111;   cursor: pointer; } my-comp a{     text-decoration: none;     color: white; } my-comp a:hover{     text-decoration: none; } As you'd figure, component name will be my-comp which will be registered later on. Now I need a metadata file to describe the component, properties etc. Put my-comp.json under <comp_home>. {     "name": "my-comp",     "description": "My custom link component",     "version": "1.0.0",     "properties":  {         "linknames": {             "type": "object"         }     } } Note the property linknames. This is going to be the component attribute that accepts an array of link names to be rendered. Now I need a viewModel to provide the data that come from linknames to the component as a names array. Put my-comp.js under <comp_home>. define(['knockout'], function (ko) { function model(context) { var self = this; context.props.then(function (properties) { if (properties.linknames) { self.names = properties.linknames; } }); } return model; }); One last thing to do is to register the component so that I can use it in my application. Put loader.js under <comp_home> define(['ojs/ojcore', 'text!./my-comp.html', './my-comp', 'text!./my-comp.json', 'css!./my-comp', 'ojs/ojcomposite'], function (oj, view, viewModel, metadata) { oj.Composite.register('my-comp', { view: {inline: view}, viewModel: {inline: viewModel}, metadata: {inline: JSON.parse(metadata)} }); } ); Notice the component is registered as my-comp and the files we created earlier are provided as view, viewModel and metadata. You can verify your directory structure below.    Now it's just a matter of requiring the component wherever you want to use. Let's open up incidents.js under <site_root>/js/viewModels and define a dependency shown in the 1st line as 'composites/my-comp/loader' to the component we created. While here, create some links as in 6th line. define(['ojs/ojcore', 'knockout', 'jquery', 'composites/my-comp/loader'], function(oj, ko, $) { function IncidentsViewModel() { var self = this; self.names = ["New Incident", "Open Incidents", "History"]; Open up incidents.html under <site_root>/js/views and place the component. <my-comp linknames='{{names}}'></my-comp> <div class="oj-hybrid-padding"> <h3>Incidents Content Area</h3> <div> .... Run the application and go to Incidents page. You should see your custom component there.  Summary Oracle JET is a toolkit for JavaScript developers that gives them great flexibility in developing client-side applications. It is an ideal collection of tools for any type of client-side Javascript application and if you are especially developing applications that interact with Oracle Cloud services and you want to utilize the same look and feel that Oracle Cloud services have been using. Visit this link to learn more about and get started with Oracle JET.

Partner Webcast – Oracle Container Native Application Development Platform – Use with Kubernetes

Containerization of cloud applications rapidly becomes the right (only) way to deploy complex systems architected with microservice approach in mind. Containers solve one of the fundamental issues of software development – dev/test/prod environments disparity. Using containers substantially lowers the risk of changing and deploying new versions of the applications and allows IT to closely follow business needs. However, containers alone cannot be treated as a silver bullet and a remedy to all challenges. Complex systems may consist of dozens or hundreds of containers (following the microservice way), in this case the complexity shifts from developing components to running and managing them in the production environment. DevOps teams face different kind of challenges than in the traditional monolith approach. Fortunately, thanks to open source systems like Kubernetes, this challenge has been already addressed. Kubernetes, made by the cloud giant Google, has gained tremendous popularity recently and becomes de facto new “operating system/application server” in the modern cloud, quickly replacing any older technology. It handles and automates all the tasks needed to keep you application highly available and accessible from the outside word and allows you to manage complex network of inter-dependent containers which form the whole system. The last missing part in the picture has less to do with running applications and more with answering the question – how to shorten time from commit to deploy on production. In other words, we need also a modern CI/CD environment, which natively supports containers and allows automatization of all unit testing, integration testing, deploying on the staging environment, handling different deployment pipelines etc.  Having huge experience with providing variety of cloud services, Oracle has designed a new generation of container native, cloud application platform. It consist of three main services: Oracle Container Pipelines – based on Wercker, 100% containers native CI/CD environment Oracle Container Registry – Docker registry for all cloud native applications Oracle Container Engine – working horse of cloud applications – fast and reliable Kubernetes engine closely integrated with all other cloud services We kindly invite you to this webinar which will cover basics of Oracle’s Container Platform offering, the Next generation of the Containers in the Cloud, and demonstrate key advantages of running application in the modern containerized cloud environment.   Agenda: Oracle Container Native Application Development Platform Quick introduction to Docker and Kubernetes Overview of the process of building, testing and deploying using Oracle Container Pipelines Demonstration Summary – Q&A   Presenter:  Łukasz Romaszewski - Cloud IMC Consultant - Oracle Partner Hub Innovation & Modernization Center Poland Demo: Building and running a simple SpringBoot microservice using pipelines, registry and Kubernetes engine This FREE online LIVE eSeminar will be delivered over the Web.

Data Warehouse In The Cloud (DWaas)

Are you unable to scale your compute platform to meet the current growth in data , is it difficult to handle multiple data types in an era of IoT and Big data? All these questions will come up in your mind and distract you away from your business goals.  First let’s talk about Data warehouse (DWH) and what is your business needs from your enterprise data collection. DWH is a set centralized data repositories that integrate data from various transactional, legacy, or external systems, applications, and sources. The data warehouse provides an environment separate from the operational systems and is completely designed for decision-support, analytical-reporting, ad-hoc queries, and data mining. This isolation and optimization enables queries to be performed without any impact on the systems that support the business’ primary transactions (i.e transactional and operational systems) . So it's time to think about complete solution for consolidating and putting data to use with analytics that empower your entire organization to ask any questions of any data type at any given time. I think this is your primarily objective reaching that level of DWH perfection along with your data analysis capabilities. Let’s see what Oracle DW Cloud services can offer: Autonomous Database cloud service for Data warehouse - Fully automated database for self-tuning, patches , upgrade itself while the system is running and adaptive caching and indexing all powered by Oracle Exadata engineered infrastructure. Highly Elastic Compute platform - Prefigured compute and storage shapes can instantly scale up /Down. Built-in web-based SWL tool - Ready made tool optimized to run from your browser. Enterprise grade security - Data encrypted by default in the cloud as well as in transit. Today’s leading firms differentiate themselves through analytics, these pioneers leveraging their competitive advantage by extracting value from all their data sources so let’s see what are the benefits behind a successful DW implementation. Best Decision-Making - Corporate decision makers will no longer have to make important business decisions based on limited data and hunches. Data warehouses store credible facts and statistics, and decision makers will be able to retrieve that information from the data warehouse based on their personal needs. In addition to making strategic decisions, a data warehouse can also assist in marketing segmentation, inventory management, financial management, and sales Quick and easy data access - Speed is an important factor that sets you above your competitors. Business users can quickly access data from multiple sources from a data warehouse, meaning that precious time won’t be wasted on retrieving data from multiple sources. This allows you to make quick and accurate decisions, with little or no support from your IT department. Data quality and consistency – Since data warehouses gather information from different sources and convert it into a single and widely used format, departments will produce results that are in line and consistent with each other. When data is standardized, you can have confidence in its accuracy, and accurate data is what makes for strong business decisions.

Partner Webcast – Achieve Database High Availability and Disaster Recovery with Oracle Cloud

The High Availability and Disaster Recovery needs of customers traditionally have required significant capital investment in the infrastructure that provides the redundant capabilities that are needed and a lot of guidance leading to Oracle publishing detailed Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA) Best Practices. The goal of MAA was and remains to achieve the optimal high availability architecture at the lowest cost and complexity. With the cloud this situation has changed drastically, allowing customers to design hybrid solutions in which the redundancy to the production on-premise systems is provided by cloud services, strongly reducing the need for capital investment in redundant infrastructure. Maximum Availability is now updated with the introduction of Oracle Cloud, enabling a more efficient utility model of computing. In this webcast, exclusive for Oracle partners, you will learn how the Oracle IaaS and Paas cloud services can add high availability and disaster recovery features to the customers' on-premise systems. You will understand how to position and present the value proposition to customers, and what are the resources available to help you in the sales process.

Oracle Infrastructure Automation with Chef

Chef is one of the most popular configuration management tools that automates the building of your infrastructure especially if you are working with many servers. In this blog post, I am going to show you how you can automate the installation of your VM instance hosted on Oracle IaaS with Chef. The scenario will be based on installing and running Apache web server in Oracle Linux VM. Here are the main steps that I will cover; Installing Chef development kit Using the hosted Chef server Creating a cookbook and recipe Uploading the cookbook to Chef server Registering target node to Chef server Installing Chef Development Kit Chef is a client-server technology where you install a development kit that includes required chef commands to work with the server. The server part is not mandatory if you are willing to work in local mode and store your recipes on your computer. However, in this post, I am going to use the hosted Chef environment which I'll explain later. Now let's get back to installing our development kit. I am using Ubuntu 16.04 for my client. Go to https://downloads.chef.io/chefdk and download the corresponding package to your computer. Install the package with the following command sudo dpkg -i chef_13.4.24-1_amd64.deb You can verify the installation by running the following command. It outputs 13.4.24 in my case. chef-client -v Using the Hosted Chef Server As I mentioned earlier you can go without having a server but it is much better to have a centralized place for your configuration data, recipes and cookbooks so you can access them from anywhere and monitor your servers from the Chef server. In this scenario, I am going to use the hosted environment. First, create an account on https://manage.chef.io When you log into your account, the first thing to do is to create an organization. Choose a name as you like and proceed with the creation. The Chef server also provides a Starter Kit to make it easier to work with recipes and cookbooks. Download it from the left side menu by heading to Starter Kit > Download Starter Kit and unzip it. I am going to call this directory chef-repo When you are inside the chef-repo, you can validate your authentication to the Chef server by knife client list If it outputs <your-organization-name>-validator, that means you are successfully authenticated to the Chef server. Creating a Cookbook and Recipe Now we are going to create a cookbook that will hold our server recipe which will install and run Apache web server. We will create the recipe shortly. Under the chef-repo folder, run the following command to create a cookbook first. It will be placed under cookbooks folder with a name apache. chef generate cookbook cookbooks/apache You can verify the cookbook is created with; knife cookbook list -z -z specifies we are looking for local cookbooks. Now we can create our recipe with the following command; chef generate recipe cookbooks/apache/ server This creates a recipe called server under cookbooks/apache folder. Now we are going to edit this server recipe to include our automation code. Edit the newly created server.rb file under cookbooks/apache/recipes and append the following code that will install and run apache on our target server. package 'httpd' file '/var/www/html/index.html' do content '<h2>Hello world</h2>' end service 'httpd' do action [:start, :enable] end When this recipe runs, it will install and run the httpd service on our target server. Uploading the Cookbook to Chef Server Enter the following command to upload our cookbook to Chef server knife upload cookbooks/apache Now you can verify if the cookbook is uploaded to Chef server by entering; knife cookbook list Registering Target Node to Chef Server It is time to register our target server which will run the apache. I have an Oracle Linux 6.4 running in my Compute Cloud Service. To register the node, I need the public IP address of my node. This registering process is called bootstrapping in Chef. On my client machine, I type the following to register my server. Note that this command also runs the server recipe which we have uploaded earlier. Don't forget to keep your current working directory at chef-repo. knife bootstrap 140.86.1.251 -x opc -i priv.pem --sudo -N my_web_server -r "recipe[apache::server]"   You can also verify this in target server logs Lastly, we can do a curl localhost to see that apache is running properly and serving our files.   Imagine you have lots of servers to accomplish this same operation of installing and running apache server. This would be a very time-consuming task without an automation tool. Thus, tools like Chef enable us to manage our infrastructure with little effort. Chef has many other great features which are not covered here so please visit https://learn.chef.io/ for more. The VM I used for installing the server is hosted on Oracle IaaS. If you want to play with your own instances you can go to https://cloud.oracle.com/iaas request your free trial.

Oracle Big Data

Oracle Big Data Cloud services for all - Insights built to last

Big data remain a topic everyone seems to be talking about it, but still many wonder "what is big data really?" How is it changing the way researchers at companies, non-profits, governments, institutions, and other organizations are learning about the world around them.? Which technology provider should i trust ? What kind of data-set should be collected ? and many more similar questions we will try to answer during this post. Big Data came to existence as a way to handle  extremely large data sets that may be analyzed computationally to reveal patterns, trends, and associations, especially relating to human behavior and interactions. The more the data we could collect, the more complicated managing them became, thus different ways of handling and making sense of them had to be created. But most importantly, the more the data we could collect, the more information and insight we could get. For Oracle, Big data describes a holistic information management strategy that includes and integrates many new types of data and data management alongside traditional data. So, How is Big data used in practice ?  Big data analytics helps organizations tie up their data together and use it to identify new Business opportunities that leads to smarter business moves more efficient operation , higher profit and customer satisfaction  . Targeting Customers Big data is used to better understand customers and their behaviors and preferences. Companies are keen to expand their traditional data sets with social media data, browser logs as well as text analytics and sensor data to get a more complete picture of their customers. Humanizing Cities and Countries . Big Data allows cities to optimize traffic flows based on real time traffic information as well as social media and weather data. Optimize Business processes. Big data is also increasingly used to optimize business processes. Retailers are able to optimize their stock based on predictions generated from social media data, web search trends and weather forecasts. Personal qualification and performance optimization. Big data is not just for companies and governments but also for all of us individually. We can now benefit from the data generated from wearable devices such as smart watches or smart bracelets. Take the Up band from Jawbone as an example: the armband collects data on our calorie consumption, activity levels, and our sleep patterns. While it gives individuals rich insights, the real value is in analyzing the collective data. Financial trading. High-Frequency Trading (HFT) is an area where big data finds a lot of use today. Here, big data algorithms are used to make trading decisions. Today, the majority of equity trading now takes place via data algorithms that increasingly take into account signals from social media networks and news websites to make, buy and sell decisions in split seconds. Why Oracle Big data  ? In a natural evolution from database and data warehouses, where Oracle is the #1 enterprise choice, Oracle invests in Big Data allowing you to gain a competitive advantage with an information strategy and big data architecture focused on data liquidity. Oracle extends your data management abilities to getting the data you want into the shape you need with the minimum time and effort.

Process Cloud Service - Using correlations to communicate between processes (part 1)

There are several possible ways to communicate between processes like, request and response, fire and forget, calling sub-processes using call activities. All of those create a new process or sub-process which interacts with the old one. But what if we need to communicate with the specific already active instance of the process. The solution is to use correlations. This blog post, comes as a detailed guide next to Partner Webcast – Inter Process Communication with Correlations in Oracle Process Cloud Service. As in the Partner Webcast demo, we will describe how to create two processes in Oracle Process Cloud Service communicating using correlation. There will also be a additional post describing how to demonstrate correlations using PCS Player. The case is very simplistic (see below) to focus only on correlation in action. First Process defines the correlation unique key during Start Event then waits for the message from the second process. Second process sends the same unique key to first process together with the message. When the First Process receives the message it proceeds and displays the message in user interface. The following sequence of actions is needed to define user interfaces of start events for both processes : Open Oracle Process Cloud Service Home page Select Develop Processes Create new application - name it Correlation Demo Create two processes "First Process" and "Second Process" both started with a form Open "First Process" select Start Event, open its properties. You need to set the title to "First Process initialize" and create new form using NewWebForm  In the form Designer drag and drop two input text elements and name them correlationKey  and initalMessage, change their labels to "Define Correlation Key" and "Initial Message" Go to "Second Process" open properties of the Start Event Set title to "Initialize Second Process" and create new from named SecondProcessStartForm This time use Forms palette - and reuse elements already created for FirstProcessStartForm  Click "Detach" and existing update labels to Key and Message  Click Save Add Catch Intermediate Event to the first Process: Open "First Process" Drag and drop intermediate message catch event after Start Event Open its properties Set type to Define Interface and click on the pen button Change the operation name to catchIntermediateEvent Add two arguments by clicking plus button name them key and message keep type string for both like in the diagram below Click Save Define Correlation Click on the correlation button: The pop-up correlations window will appear Click + button Add correlation named ck1 Add one property name it key and type string Click << button see diagram below Click Apply button Initialize correlation Select Start Event and Open its properties Select Correlation tab Click + button The system will show all available correlation keys - in our case there will be only one ck1 previously created. Please select ck1 Click fx button located in the properties table Then Expression Editor window will appear. Expand formArgs, select correlationKey Click "Insert Into Expression ^"  button then click Validate button If the expression is valid then click OK button Set correlation event Select "Message Catch Intermediate Event" and Open Properties Select correlations tab but this time instead of Initialize Tab we need to select Correlate tab Select + button to select ck1 correlation key Click fx button located in the properties table Expression Editor window will appear. Expand formArgs, select correlationKey Click "Insert Into Expression ^"  button If the expression is valid then click Validate button Save Add user Task to show the received message to the user Drag and drop new user task after  "Message Catch Intermediate Event"  Open properties of the User task Add new webForm name it UserTaskForm Click Create button We want to reuse forms created for initialization of first and second processes Go to Forms Palette and drag and drop FirstProcess.. and SecondProce... objects This time we will not detach those elements because we need exact copies of the original elements Save    Add global variables to First Process - we need them as an output from "Message Catch Intermediate Event"  and input to UserTask Go back to the first process Select "Message Catch Intermediate Event" and "Open Data Association" Expand FirstProcessData and select Data Object Click + button Add two data objects key and message both type string Drag and drop key object from Message Catch Intermediate Event - Output to  left  entry field in Transformations table Do the same with newly created key Data Object to the  right  entry field in Transformations table Afterwards a new row will appear in the Transformations table ready for repating previous steps but this time with message objects Click Apply button Assign data for UserTask Select UserTask "Open Data Association" Be sure that  input Data association was selected We need to associate data like in the diagram below Click Apply button Define message from Second Process to First Process Select  Second Process Change End none type Exit event into end message event like in the first diagram below Open its properties Select Type to Process Call Click pen button Using magnifying glass search processes Select "First Process" and Target Node "Message Catch Intermediate Event" Click OK button Open Data Association for the End event Set up Input data Association for CorrelationKey and initialMassage like in the second diagram below   Now the application is ready for deploying and testing, but before we need to publish it   Select publish button - see below Enter mandatory comment text then Click Publish button     Continued in Part 2...
