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
Integration Developer is required for this article.
I did not realize that the default log size of the test server installation of WebSphere Process Server inside of WebSphere Integration Developer was so small. It’s a single one megabyte file. This means that I don’t have all the spring exceptions that I thought I did. I suggest anyone who wants to be able […]
The ability to roll back a update is a nifty idea. The theory is that you installed something that broke your platform. You can now just ‘undo’ the install. In practice, it’s a feature that next to nobody uses. It requires a deep-faith in the programmers of the rollback logic to return the system to […]
I started my update from 6.1 to 6.1.2 and the process took two hours (not including download times). That’s unacceptable. Most of the time was spent installing the WebSphere Process Server fixes. The UI appeared frozen for about an hour (still responsive, just that the progress bar didn’t move). When I jumped down to the […]
In v6.1 you now use the installation manager to update WID to the various fixpacks. I had a very old install of v6.1 GM in a VM that I started up and couldn’t seem to update. I was getting the message “No updates found.”. Then I realized that the VM’s network card was set to […]
Cheers to David Currie for pointing out that while the WebSphere Integration Developer user interface allows you to specify an event sequencing qualifier inside a mediation module, if you attempt to deploy the solution to an WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus Server, you’ll get exceptions. Interestingly enough, if you deploy the same Mediation Module to WebSphere […]
One of the restrictions when dealing with a short running process is that it must always run within a single transaction. The implication is that the process must complete within the default transaction timeout window. On an application server, this is 120s. We had an issue where our Process Server was creating a large number […]
V6.1.2 has been released for WebSphere Integration Developer and WebSphere Process Server. You can read the list of features. I’m going to highlight the ones that interest me: WebSphere Process Server New out-of-the-box, ready-to-run, Web 2.0 BPM client for business users with configurable work lists and detailed work item views, including support for collaboration using […]
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.

A while ago, I posted about the WebSphere Adapter for JDBC always writing an exception to the System.out when a record could not be found. At the time, we were being told that it was not something that would be fixed in the 6.x timeframe. Suddenly, there has been a change of heart from IBM […]
I had a custom snippet in my map between two string attributes and a list of business objects. The idea being that each string from the source should becomes an entry in the business object list with a wrapper. No problem. I wrote up the snippet to create the destination business object (since it does […]
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.
We had a WebSphere Adapter for JDBC export in our module, and it was throwing the following exception: [5/27/08 17:55:52:315 EDT] 0000006b NUXInResource I PollEventManagerWorker run() CWYBS0011I: Polling has started.
