1. What is Business Process Management (BPM)?

BPM is an automation of processes that exists in an
organisation.There are challeges that can be more
efficiently handled through different technologies using
BPM. Ex: webMethods technology(using Designer).

Through BPM an organisation can
► Monitor its working efficiency in rendering services to
the customers.
► Identify the areas that needs to be modified/improvise.
► easily address the problem areas.

2. What is short lock and long lock in tibco iProcess?

► Short lock. This is the standard lock normally set
by the TIBCO iProcess Workspace. A short lock is removed
when a user keeps or releases a work item. In the event
that short locks are left behind because, for example, the
iProcess Workspace crashed, the only way to remove the
short lock is to re-start the iProcess Engine or use the

► Long lock. A lock that is persistent and can only
be removed using sal_llock_frm_init() by the user holding
the lock. Long locks are not normally used by TIBCO
iProcess Workspace, but may be set by SAL SDK programs or
the TIBCO iProcess Objects Client. Re-starting the iProcess
Engine has no effect on long locks, so a work item locked
in this way remains inaccessible to every iProcess user
until it is manually unlocked.

3. Where can you see the description of the error when a Case is terminated abnormally?

Check the SWDIRlogssw_warn or sw_error log files to see
if any error messages were logged.

4. What is the difference between iProcess Server Objects and iProcess Objects server?

Client applications make use of the objects in the TIBCO
iProcess Server Objects by making method calls that either
retrieve or modify data. These method calls cause messages
to be sent to a TIBCO iProcess Objects Server. The TIBCO
iProcess Objects Server acts as a gateway between the
client applications created with TIBCO iProcess Server
Objects, and the TIBCO iProcess Engine, where the actual
processing and storage of data occurs. The TIBCO iProcess
Engine manages all data, routing work items and updating
the appropriate work queues.
Server Objects communicate with the TIBCO iProcess Objects
Server via TCP/IP .Objects Server communicate with the
TIBCO iProcess Engine via UDP

5. How can try and catch block can be implemented using web methods developer?

1)sequence(outer sequence-exit on success).

2)sequence(Try block with service logic(inner sequence & child
to outer sequence)-exit on failure).

3)sequence(Catch block with any errors found in try block
(inner sequence & child to outer sequence)-exit
on done).

4)Branch step with retrying the errors

6. What is difference between groups and ACL groups?

Groups: Can be created of people having same
resposibilities. ex:Developer Group.
ACL: With the help of ACL you can grant access to a gropu
or Individual.With ACLs you can grant access to few in a
ex: A user need not belong to Developer group to develop
new flows, but he need to belong to a group which is
assigned to Developer ACl.

7. What is alias file in TIBCO?

TIBCO Designer allows to create alias to resources that can
be reused across projects.
Alias are used in 2 resources
1)AliasLibrary- Used to alias file system resources like
the jar files needed in the project.
2)Library builder- Used to alias shared resources like
Schemas, SSL Certs, BW processes needed during design time.

8. How to create a directory using external command activity in BW? can u please tell the cmd?

To create Directory using external command

For Windows:
"cmd /c mkdir <Drive-path><Directory-Name>"
This is an single command to be entered in input of the

9. How to xml validation?

You will find green 'right mark' on the top or else just press f8 to validate the XML file. If there are any errors, it will populate them in detail. According to that you can rectify.

10. Why we implement the TIBCO in our organization or company?

see when we intract with any applications or dbs commnly we use protocols or connections.sometimes protocols also doesnt support to intract applications by rectifying all those things we need a middleware application. Tibco is the one of the middleware application

why we choose this?

becuase most midleware applications will follow server architecture but tibco follows bus architecture with special feature called tibco rv
