Today’s business processes tend to get more and more complex and can sometimes have hundreds of activities. Maintaining and monitoring these business processes can get hard for companies’ IT experts. Process views support those experts by providing user-defined views of a process. Complexity can be reduced by aggregating activities or leaving them out. It is also possible to highlight parts of a process that are more im-portant than others. Business Process Illustrator is an open-source, web-based business process monitoring tool, developed at the Institute of Architecture of Application Systems at the University of Stuttgart. This tool uses process views to simplify the monitoring of complex business processes. It has a built-in adapter for the Apache ODE process engine, but it can basically support any type of Workflow Management System. WSO2 Carbon is a modular open-source middleware platform which hosts a rich set of middleware components encompassing capabilities such as business process man-agement and business activity monitoring. It is extensible and allows the installation of custom components through a technology called OSGi. WSO2 Business Process Server is a WSO2 Carbon-based product that executes business processes defined using the WS-BPEL standard. The WSO2 Process Server is powered by Apache ODE and therefore predestinated for the Business Process Illustrator to be integrated with WSO2 Carbon. The goal of this student thesis is to provide an open-source integration of the Business Process Illustrator with the WSO2 Carbon platform as an OSGi bundle and to establish a connection to the Business Process Server component.
