Study points for the exam

To help you prepare, review the exam objectives, which highlight the task areas you can expect to see on the exam. Red Hat reserves the right to add, modify, and remove exam objectives. Such changes will be made public in advance.

Candidates should be able to perform these tasks:

Configure and use Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite activities, including:

- User Task

- Script

- Service

- Custom work item

- Business rule task

- Sub process

Define and manipulate Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite variables, including:

- Global variables

- Process variables

- Task variables

- Mapping variables to activity parameters

Understand and use flow control in Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite business processes, including:

- Understanding the meaning and use of the different start and end events

- Using gateways to branch process flows

Understand the specific benefits and weaknesses of different Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite process elements, including but not limited to:

- Script vs. work item

- Stop vs. terminate

Handle technical exceptions and process errors:

- Using signal

- Using error code

- Triggered by event subprocess

- Integrate with external processes

Familiarize yourself with the official Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite documentation for the version used in the exam (BPM Suite 6.3). The exam environment includes a snapshot of the official BPM Suite 6.3 docs, so being familiar with them will significantly help if you need to look up anything during the exam. In addition to the official documentation for the product version being tested, there may also be sample files or additional documentation included with the product itself. We will not strip out anything that is normally included, but you will not be able to use the Internet to search for or use other documentation. It's a good idea to keep these restrictions in mind as you study. Make sure you're familiar with, and only rely on, the official product documentation for the version specified. Due to technical limitations in the exam environment, we strongly recommend that you use the +HTML-SINGLE+ version of the docs as that is the version that is easiest to use and view during the exam.

Skills Gained

Red Hat encourages all candidates for the Red Hat Certified Specialist in Business Process Design exam (EX427) to consider taking the Developing Workflow Applications with Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite (JB427) course to help prepare. Attendance in these classes is not required, and you can choose to take just an exam.

While attending Red Hat's classes can be an important part of your preparation, attending class does not guarantee success on the exam. Previous experience, practice, and native aptitude are also important determinants of success.

Many books and other resources on system administration for Red Hat's products are available. Red Hat does not endorse any as preparation guides for any exams. Nevertheless, you may find additional reading helpful to deepen your understanding.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. Its a cost effective option. One on one training can be delivered too, at reasonable rates.
