Use ARM to monitor SCA invocations in IBM WebSphere Process Server

This two-part series shows you how to monitor Service Component Architecture
(SCA) invocations using the Application Response Measurement (ARM) standard in IBM
WebSphere Process Server V6.1. You can use an ARM implementation, such as IBM Tivoli
Composite Application Manager for Response Time Tracking, to generate a graphic view
of SCA invocations. This article, Part 1 of the series, starts by describing ARM and
showing you how to debug synchronous scenarios using Tivoli Composite Application
Manager for Response Time Tracking. In Part 2, you’ll get an introduction to SCA
invocation patterns and learn how to debug asynchronous scenarios.

Web services with SOAP/JMS in IBM WebSphere Process Server

This two-part article series shows you how to use SOAP over Java Message Service
(JMS) in IBM WebSphere Process Server and IBM WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus. Learn
how to set up and use SOAP over JMS as configured by default by the IBM

MQ JMS provider via configuration. In this article, Part 1 of the series, you create and
invoke a Web service using SOAP over JMS and an end-to-end application example, covering
the full process of creating, building, deploying, and testing the applications.
Scenarios covering both point-to-point and publish/subscribe messaging walk you
through the process. In the second article in this series, you’ll
reconfigure a Web service that uses the SOAP over JMS protocol to enable the use of
WebSphere MQ as the JMS provider and allow the transport of SOAP messages via
WebSphere MQ queues.
