Part 1 of this two-part article series dives deeply into the operational
architecture of IBM WebSphere Process Server. This article introduces you to concepts, such as Service Component Architecture (SCA), Business Process
Choreographer (BPC) and Service Integration Bus (SIB) in the context of WebSphere

From DeveloperWorks, Error handling in WebSphere Process Server, Part 1: Developing an error handling strategy With the emergence of service oriented solutions, we’ve seen a sharp rise in developer productivity. Developers are empowered with a new found freedom of service construction and reuse. However, with this freedom comes an increased exposure to inconsistent service definitions. […]
The WS-Policy specification provides a simple language for expressing
policies supported by Web services. IBM WebSphere Service Registry and Repository
supports loading, changing, and retrieving policy documents, and also supports
using policy attachments to link a given policy with a service. This can then be
used by a run time component, like an Enterprise Service Bus, to retrieve
defined policies for a particular service or operation and act accordingly.
This article shows how you can utilize standard WS-Policy documents stored in a
registry to impact run time behavior in an ESB — and then change that behavior
on the fly with no code changes or redeployment. (IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal)
