This section provides you with the conventions that are used to uniquely identify versions of a process application.
A version context is a combination of acronyms that uniquely describes a process application or toolkit. Each type of acronym has a naming convention. The acronym is limited to a maximum length of seven characters from the [A-Z0-9_] character set, except for the snapshot acronym, which can also include a period.
- The process application acronym is created when the process application is created. It can be a maximum of seven characters in length.
- The snapshot acronym is created automatically when the snapshot is created. It can be a maximum of seven characters in length.If the snapshot name meets the criteria for a valid snapshot acronym, the snapshot name and acronym will be the same.
Note: When using the mediation flow component version-aware routing function, name your snapshot so that it conforms to the <version>.<release>.<modification> scheme (for example, 1.0.0). Because the snapshot acronym is limited to seven characters, the digit values are limited to a maximum of five total digits (five digits plus two periods). Therefore, care should be taken when the digit fields are incremented, because anything beyond the first seven characters is truncated.For example, a snapshot name 11.22.33 results in a 11.22.3 snapshot acronym.
- The track acronym is automatically generated from the first character of each word of the track name. For example, a new track created with the name My New Track would result in an acronym value of MNT.The default track name and acronym are Main. Deployment to a IBM® Process Center server includes the track acronym in the versioning context if the track acronym is not Main.
- You might be unable to expose the business process definitions as web services without some form of mediation.
- You might be unable to invoke a business process definition created in IBM Process Designer from a BPEL process created in IBM Integration Designer.
The version context varies, depending on how the process application is deployed.
- Naming conventions for Process Center server deployments
On the IBM Process Center server, you can deploy a snapshot of a process application as well as a snapshot of a toolkit. In addition, you can deploy the tip of a process application or the tip of a toolkit. (A tip is the current working version of your process application or toolkit.) The version context varies, depending on the type of deployment.
- Naming conventions for Process Server deployments
On the Process Server, you can deploy the snapshot of a process application. The process application snapshot acronym is used to uniquely identify the version.
