Exporting XPDL Processes
You can export Designer process files as XPDL files. Exported XPDL files are compatible with ARIS Architect and can be imported there. See Process Integration with ARIS.
When a Designer process file is exported as an XPDL file, the webMethods-specific .process properties are preserved as extended properties so that they may be used upon the future return of the process file to Designer.
Designer process properties not required by other tools but required for Designer re-import are preserved as webMethods Extended Properties. For the list of these extended properties, refer to the schema document located at <Designer installation folder>\ eclipse\v36\plugins\com.softwareag.process.xpdl.model_<build number>\schema\xpdl21WMProperties.xsd . This file is also located at Software AG_directory \Designer\util\.
To export an XPDL process
1. In Designer: File > Export > Software AG  >  XPDL File.
2. Click Next.
3. In the XPDL File Export window, select the files you want to export:
*If you want to select multiple processes in a process project, select the check box corresponding to the process project on the left to select the entire process project on the right. Select the .project file to clear the check box; only .process files can be exported as XPDL.
*If you want to select one or more process files manually, without selecting the entire process project on the left, select the name of the process project and then select the boxes corresponding to the process files you want on the right. If you want to remove a check mark, select the box again to clear it.
4. When you have selected the files for export, click Browse to select the directory in your file system where you want to place the exported files.
5. If you want Designer to Create an XPDL WorkflowProcess construct for each pool in the Designer process model, select the check box in the XPDL Mapping section. This option is selected by default. If you clear the check box, Designer places all steps in the resulting XPDL file into a single WorkflowProcess construct.
6. If you want Designer to Overwrite existing files without warning, select the check box in the Options section. The option is not selected by default.
7. Click Finish.
