As I wait for my next contract to start, I was given the opportunity to attend the Toronto version of the Impact Comes to You held at the IBM Toronto Lab (where I used to commute daily when employed by IBM). My goal today is to blog any interesting points or developments that occur throughout […]
IBM released a technote: Content and maintenance of the wstemp directory for WebSphere Process Server V6 which helps to explain what the server does with the ‘wstemp’ directory. There’s also four other articles on the topic: Problem with workspace directories How does wstemp directory work Clearing wstemp will delete console preferences Logs and temporary files […]
If you like browsing YouTube and actually want to find something educational between all the pet videos, you can check out IBM’s WebSphere Education YouTube Channel. Who knows, maybe you’ll discover the next great internet meme there that will sweep the world. Or not.
I was listening to the podcast of Steve Mills being interviewed by DeveloperWorks. The nice thing about these podcasts is that they are transcribed, so you can read along. There were a few bits of information that were interesting to me. I was listening to the podcast passively, so I may have missed some even […]

– Transition concepts and planning
– Transition support and guidance
– Transition examples
This IBM® Redbook publication provides a guide on how to transition from your WebSphere® MQ Workflow 3.6 environment to WebSphere Process Server V6.1.
This article shows you how to build versions of business processes and human tasks that are based on best practices in IBM WebSphere Integration Developer V6.1 and WebSphere Process Server V6.1.
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 […]

– Appliance Management Protocol (AMP)
– SOAP Configuration Management (SOMA)
The XML Management Interface is the third way to configure and administer the WebSphere
DataPower SOA Appliance, besides the WebGUI and the CLI.
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)
Geez, I don’t know how I missed this one. ILOG is a business rules engine that can already integrate with WebSphere Process Server so this acquisition makes sense. It’s better than the one bundled with the product and used by more companies. Anyway, I’ll defer to the bloggers of the world who have more industry […]
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
WebSphere MQ to implement message queuing. This article describes the most common best practices in designing, building, running, and maintaining WebSphere MQ solutions in order to achieve the full benefits of WebSphere MQ.
