This article introduces you to techniques and patterns that you can use to develop personalized user interfaces for business processes. Although this article focuses on IBM WebSphere Process
Server as the process engine, you can use most approaches and tools to create client applications for other process engines, for example, IBM Lotus Workflow and SAP Business Workflow.
By creating classification taxonomies in IBM WebSphere Service Registry
and Repository, you can flexibly catalog and organize services and your metadata,
enabling effective governance. This article illustrates a mechanism for
uploading classification taxonomies into the WebSphere Service Registry
and Repository using an XML-based interface, which can also be extended as an
integration mechanism for synchronizing classification taxonomies to WebSphere
Service Registry and Repository from other external systems. Find out how to load the
classification taxonomies into WebSphere Service Registry and
Repository using the Java Management Extensions (JMX) management APIs provided by WebSphere Service
Registry and Repository.
The standard practice for database administration is to periodically
check on the database and table organization to insure optimal performance —
but do these standard practices apply to a database used for JMS persistent
message storage with IBM WebSphere Application Server? (IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal)
IBM WebSphere Integration Developer is a powerful tool used by integration
developers in the assemble phase of the SOA lifecycle. You can create, test, and debug
artifacts for WebSphere Process Server, including WS-BPEL processes and state machines,
human tasks, business rules, SCA assembly diagrams, and more. This article examines the
features new to WebSphere Integration Developer V6.1.2. Basic knowledge of WebSphere
Integration Developer is required for this article.
IBM WebSphere Process Server is a powerful runtime engine that can be used as
the heart of a Service Oriented Architecture. It is built on WebSphere Application
Server, and includes WebSphere ESB, enabling you to run integration modules created with
WebSphere Application Developer, mediation modules, and J2EE applications. This article
examines the features new to WebSphere Process Server V6.1.2. Basic knowledge of WebSphere Process Server is required for this article.
Many articles and books offer recommendations for designing message queuing and integrating it into applications. This article simplifies this maze by listing 15 or so widely recognized best practices for using

Problem determination is not an exact science, but it’s also not rocket
science. A methodical approach will help your problem solving techniques become more
organized, systematic, and, ultimately, more effective. (IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal)
Test case support, a new feature of WebSphere Integration Developer V6.1, lets you create a test suite, a collection of test cases. The test client allows you to test each component in
isolation or as part of the whole module, or system of modules. You can run the suites of test cases at any time to show you whether your latest changes cause tests to fail.
