Communication between TIBCO iProcess Client and Engine.

  • The Tibco iprocess engine uses a client/server model for communication. Here we have two way communication path between each iprocess client and iprocess engine.
  • The communication protocol used for this communication is called Remote Procedure Call (RPC).
  • Any information updated/modified in client needs to be passed to iprocess engine for processing.


Physical architecture of TIBCO iProcess engine

The TIBCO iProcess engine can be installed in two ways.
  1. Installing the engine on  one server
  2. Installing the engine on  multiple servers.
Installing the engine on  one server:
  • Installing the tibco iprocess engine on one server is know as Tibco  iprocess engine node  architecture.
Installing the engine on  multiple servers:
  • Installing the tibco iprocess engine on multiple servers that all use the same database instance is known as “nodecluster”architecture.

Iprocess engine architecture: IAPJMS (IAPJMS) and RPC Background (RPCBG)

  • If activity monitoring is enabled on your TIBCO iProcess Engine, the BG process sends out a message when any of the TIBCO iProcess Engine activities that you have configured to monitor occur. This process is responsible for receiving messages from the BG process and routing these to the JMS topic or queue.
RPC Background  (RPCBG):
  • This process handles synchronous RPC calls from the Jump To and Case Suspend features in the TIBCO iProcess Client.

Iprocess engine architecture: Database Queue Daemon(DBQD) and Deadline Manager (DLMGR)

Database Queue Daemon  (DBQD):
  • This process is only currently used on the DB2 version of the TIBCO iProcess Engine.
  • This process  processes RPC requests from the BG and WISMBD processes to dequeue messages from the database queue tables.
Deadline Manager  (DLMGR):
  • This single process manages the deadlines that have been defined in a procedure using the iProcess Modeler.
  • At defined intervals, the Deadline Manager checks the outstanding_adresse table for expired deadlines. If deadlines have expired,the Deadline Manager sends an Mbox instruction to the background Mbox set. so that the case instruction process can process the deadlines for the case.

Iprocess engine architecture: About Background (BG) processes

  • This process retrieves messages from the Mbox sets and then processes the case instructions in the messages. 
  • The number of Background processes is controlled by the Process Sentinels.
  • Each message contains the case instructions from which the Background can determine what actions to take. The Background interprets the business rules defined in the procedure  and routes work items to the necessary work queues or external applications.
  • The process makes decisions based upon the Staffware data and procedure definition instructions as to what happens in the business process next.

Iprocess engine architecture: Case Prediction (BGPREDICT):

  • This process  receives messages from the Staffware Background processes.
  • When a case instruction that results in a change to a case has been processed, the Staffware Background processes notify the Case Prediction processes so that the prediction data (stored in the database) can be updated. There can be multiple case prediction processes running concurrently.
  • Each message contains information about the case that has changed and the procedure and instruction that caused the change.
  • The process will read messages from the queue(s) and update the predict table so that it contains the latest prediction information about the case that the queued message was for.
