If you are trying to use datapower’s url-open command to an MQ destination and need to set the MQMD header, you must follow the information contained in the following post: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/forums/message.jspa?messageID=14542843#14542843 Basically, the final xslt document that needs to be sent as part of the http-headers is: <xsl:variable name=”newSerializedMQMD”> <header name=”MQMD”></strong> <xsl:value-of select=”$mqmdSer” /> </header></strong> […]
If you plan on using datapower to write a modified value to the AppIdentity MQMD header, ensure that your Put Message Options on your destination are correct. You want to use “2052” which represents “MQPMO_SET_CONTEXT_ALL” along with “MQPMO_NO_SYNCPOINT”. You need to tell MQ that it should use the message headers from the written message. In […]
If you are using DataPower to pull messages from MQ which contains persistent messages, do yourself a favor and set the ‘Units of Work’ on the QM in DP to 1. This will enable DataPower to use SyncPoints from MQ and allow you transactionality on a per-message basis. Without this setting, you can get very […]
In WTX, I have a COBOL EBCDIC input with a bunch of filler fields. The Input Type Tree was created by the Cobol Copybook Importer. I had an ‘invalid input’ occur when I submitted a cobol message to my WTX map. The map failed on a filler item where the input wasn’t spaces, but NULL. […]
I was using WTX 8.3 to build a type tree off a COBOL copybook. When I then attempted to run a map based on the tree I got the error “One or More Inputs was Invalid”. My Input data was in EBCDIC format and RFHUtil was my saviour. It was able to display the copybook […]
Just had a problem where a WSDL file that was uploaded to the DataPower device did not show up in the local:// drop down for selection. Upon further inspection, we found that there was whitespace before the <? xml .. ?> tag and whitespace before the <wsdl:definitions…> tag. Once this extra whitespace was removed, the […]
I’ve posted a question to the Datapower external newsgroup asking about how Siteminder can be used to authenticate users. The documentation is pretty thin on the subject. https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=315235 Basically, i have a username and password that I’d like Siteminder to authenticate. I’m sure that Datapower invokes a URL and posts the information to the given […]
This tutorial shows you how to migrate WebSphere Process Server configuration data,
application data, and databases from V188.8.131.52 to V184.108.40.206. The tutorial also describes the sub-tasks

If you are planning on upgrading your WebSphere Servers to a later fixpack level, be sure to start with the Deployment Manager. If you do not, your Deployment Manager will not be able to contact your ‘future level’ node agent. “Server cannot be started because the node agent for server Node1 on node x is […]
You can import and export your WebSphere Application Server or WebSphere Process Server profiles into .CAR archive files. Importing and exporting version 6 WebSphere Application Server profiles provides the specific wsadmin (or RAD/WID) steps to perform.
The infocenter has a great article about how to use “Industry Standard Schemas” with WebSphere Process Server. This is required reading. You will need to know about the Sequence object when dealing with xsd:any xsd:anyType xsd:anySimpleType xsd:anyAttribute This used to be completely undocumented and now, the documentation is actually really good. Enjoy your undefined datatype. […]
