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 […]
The WebSphere Community Blog pointed out that there is a new WebSphere Application Server 7.0 Feature Pack available for download. This one will enable the Tuscany implementation of SCA inside the WebSphere Container. It should be noted that this version of SCA is not the same one included in WebSphere Process Server. I would just […]

Was getting the following oracle exception when trying to use an Oracle XA datasource from WebSphere: WSRdbXaResour E DSRA0304E: XAException occurred. XAException contents and details are: The XA Error is : -3 The XA Error message is : A resource manager error has occured in the transaction branch. The Oracle Error code is : 65535 […]
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.
Before I could do any of the steps below to invoke a REST service or install my BPEL suitcase, I needed to figure out how to connect JDeveloper to my application server. It’s not an obvious procedure. In JDeveloper, flip to the connections view. Create a new Application Server Configuration. Choose to create a Standalone […]
I had created a simple echoing BPEL process in my JDeveloper and then looked around for the option to export an EAR for my service. Of course, there isn’t one. What happens is that JDeveloper will create a JAR that contains your BPEL artifacts. This JAR is called the “BPEL Suitcase”. I assume it’s a […]
Right out of the gate in my experience with Oracle BPEL, I have to integrate with a non-SOAP HTTP service. Luckily, Lucas Jellema over on the AMIS Technology blog has a very well written article that goes end to end on exactly what you need to do in order to get Oracle and HTTP (REST) […]
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 […]
Just a quick tip, if you need to modify a JMS ConnectionFactory’s Provider Endpoints in WebSphere Application Server, be sure to re-start your server. You normally need to perform this task when you are outside the application server hosting the queue and performing remote JNDI lookups. I modified the value but always got the error […]

– 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.
This article shows you how to design, develop, configure, deploy, and test an end-to-end purchase order scenario using WebSphere Process Server,
WebSphere Adapters, and SAP. You also learn how to create applications that Web enable SAP services and help in the analysis, design, and implementation of similar integration applications.
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.
In a case of something I have never seen before, it appears that PK49507: THE SIBUS RESOURCE ADAPATER WILL NOW INDICATE THAT AN MDB SHOULD BE STOPPED IF A CERTAIN NUMBER OF FAILURES ARE HIT actually requires you to recreate your entire server profile from scratch! It contains the statement: This property will only be […]
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)
In my solution, I am using Log4J inside an EJB. I created a log4j.properties file and put it on the classpath of my EJB. I created a file appender for some exception cases. When I ran my solution, I found that my file wasn’t being created. Upon further inspection, my log4j.properties file was not being […]
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 […]
Planning that new WebSphere Process Server v6.0 GA production deployment? I suggest you check out the End Of Service Dates published by IBM for your versions to ensure that you aren’t painting yourself into a corner before you even start. Beware clicking that last link, it’s a poorly created web page with every single IBM […]
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

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.
In my solution, I use JAXB to convert from XML over the wire into Java objects. I added the JAXB jars to my ear (as previously explained). When I deployed and tested the solution on my local server everything was fine. When I deployed and tested the solution on the development machine, which contains WebSphere […]
I have an SIBus destination called: ‘MY/QUEUE’. I create a JMS QueueConnectionFactory and JMS Queue definition to this destination. jms/LoggingPoisonQueueCF and jms/LoggingPoisonQueue. When I attempt to put a message on the destination (using Spring JMS) I get the following exception: org.springframework.jms.InvalidDestinationException: CWSIA0046E: The parameter queue://MY/QUEUE?busName=SIBJMSBus is from a foreign implementation that is not supported.; nestedexception […]
I’d just like the tout the WHICH4J Project which has helped me immensely in my classpath confict issues with Oracle over LOG4J and JAXB. Which4J is a small utility jar that can be added to your classpath and used via: System.out.println(“WHICH 4J: ” + Which4J.which(JAXBContext.class)) Works fine with WebSphere Application Server
