The BRIDGE Education Lessons 1-3 serve as a self learning program for developing a Web service with Scheer PAS BRIDGE. The education leads you through a development process divided into three lessons, which will teach you to build services based on the BRIDGE platform. Each lesson can be accomplished in about a day.

Lesson 1

By working through Education Lesson 1, you will learn

  • how to install the software and tools on your system, which are necessary to develop, test, and run a simple Web service
  • how to handle Scheer PAS BUILDER for MagicDraw and the xUML Embedded Runtime
  • how to draw a UML model with MagicDraw
  • how to compile and deploy your own xUML service with the xUML Model Compiler
  • how to test and debug your own Web service with the xUML Interactive Debugger
  • how to manage service composites on the BRIDGE

Lesson 2

The goal of Lesson 2 is to create a Web service that receives data. The Web service processes the data and returns it back.

By working through this document, you will learn

  • how to create classes and associations
  • how to use objects and pins
  • how to use operations and functions in Action Scripts
  • how to define call operation actions how to perform simple mappings
  • how to test and debug your own Web service with the xUML Interactive Debugger and the Scheer PAS ANALYZER
Lesson 3

The goal of Lesson 3 is to model a Web service that receives a search request. The requested items are searched in an XML data source file. For each found record a currency conversion is performed. The necessary exchange rate is received from an external SOAP Service. If the search is successful, the Web service sends the search result back.
