Modeling process-oriented enterprise applications asks for combining business process modeling with user interaction and data modeling. Current Business Process Management (BPM) and workflow technologies, however, are neither integrated with user dialogs nor offer an appropriate data model. This paper describes a solution to these shortcomings – an integrated framework for modeling process-oriented applications called Processes with User Interfaces and Data Modeling Integration (PUDI), which combines best practices of processoriented and form-based approaches. The paper presents both, a precise technical description of the PUDI framework and a detailed description of its use in an industrial re-documentation project at inet-logistics.
