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
Process Server, and shows you how they work together to build a secure
transactional runtime environment for your SOA. In this respect, you will be able to
better articulate the technical architecture of WebSphere Process Server, which will
improve your ability to operate WebSphere Process Server in your organization..

From DeveloperWorks, WebSphere Process Server invocation styles As you author applications in WebSphere Integration Developer, you may find it necessary to set or verify the invocation style that one component will use to call another. Users are often surprised to find that this is not as easy a task as it may seem. This article […]
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)

I had the need to be able to place a JMS Message onto a Service Integration Bus Queue. I tried to use the SIBus Explorer, but it really didn’t like my WebSphere v6.1 configuration and would always throw an exception. I then checked out the IBM Client Application Tool for JMS pointed out to me […]
