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 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.
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 spent a few days battling the oracle DBMS_CRYPTO package. This package allows the encryption of data types, including clobs and blobs (in oracle 10g). The battles included: My user not having visibility to the package in the stored procedure call. This was solved by a simple call to the DBA. In my system, I […]
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 […]
I was asked an interesting question. If your messaging engine is in a cluster and it fails over from one node to the next, how to my clients know which node is now hosting the Messaging Engine? I haven’t run this scenario myself so I don’t know. I do know that the datapower allow you […]
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 […]
There are various API’s that are provided as a part of WebSphere Process Server. EJB API There is the standard EJB lookup method for the four JNDI’s (Human Task, BusinessFlow, Relationship etc). EJB provides slightly more functionality than the Web service or JMS interface. The generic EJB API supports Remote Artifact loading so you don’t […]

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 […]
