Method and System for In-Place Modeling of Business Process Extensions as First-Class Entities
The adaptation of business applications and their underlying business processes is key to meeting the specific needs of a certain customer or domain. The core objective of an extender is tomodify the (process) artifacts provided by a base software vendor – yet, existing approaches do not support this directly but force the developer to explicitly use complex extensibility constructs and tools. Based on generic extensibility concepts, this demonstration proposal introduces a novel method and system for business process extensions that supports the intuitive inplace modification of processes. The extensions are extracted automatically and stored as first-class entities, ready to be recomposed or reused in other contexts.
