In a previous post, I discussed the DeveloperWorks Process Server Endurance article. In that article, they ran into a situation where the number of maxMessages was breached (100 by default). At my client site, we had a situation where messages in an Event Sequenced queue would remain locked forever, causing the maxMessages to be breached. […]
See how BPEL processes can handle unmodeled faults with a user-defined fault handler by using SCA mediation module (ESB) capabilities.
If you’ve worked developing an application for more than five minutes, chances are that you’ve encounter a big long exception trace. The best thing to do is try to look at the very top for a non-generic exception that relates to your problem. This article will attempt to describe exactly what happened via the information […]
The MQ Bindings feature in WebSphere Integration Developer V6.0.2, simplifies interoperability between SCA and MQ applications, and makes it easier
to read and write native MQ messages to and from SCA applications.
Generally, I’m not a big proponent of the certification process. They tend to be too focused on the ‘book smarts’ of the products instead of probing the candidate on their knowledge of the core abilities. But last year at the WebSphere Services Technical Conference, I took advantage of the attendee benefit of writing free certification […]
Usually, there aren’t a lot of books published on specific products as the software release cycle tends to be faster than the publishing industry can keep up with and information gets out of date quickly. I was surprised when I saw that a new book about Business Integration with IBM software was released: WebSphere Business […]
The one thing that always confused me about WebSphere is the lack of a single large vibrant community for practitioners. The best one that I’m aware of is the WebSphere Application Server developerWorks forum which seems to get about 20 posts a day. Twenty posts. The ones for process server and integration developer average 3-4 […]
At my client, we had a unique situation occur when integrating a database and an export for the WebSphere Adapter for JDBC. In a ‘typical’ scenario, a single row is written into a staging table, an SQL trigger writes this single row into the adapter’s event table, the adapter polls, converts the data into a […]
I stumbled across a great article on developerWorks that outlines what’s new in WPS v6.1 and a second article on whats new in WID v6.1. It’s nice to see IBM come out with a detailed article of whats changed between versions aside from the usual useless marketing banter. WebSphere ESB improvements New mediation primitives let […]
Developerworks has a fantastic article written about Endurance Testing with WebSphere Process Server. Taken from the abstract: Endurance testing is an important aspect of reliability. This article provides insight into the various problems and solutions encountered by the WebSphere Process Server Validation team as they performed an endurance run on WebSphere Process Server V6.0.2. Upon […]
We have an issue today arrise when an ‘old’ system was sending us XML that included a direct DTD reference in the XML transmitted over the wire. <?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”ISO-8859-1″?> <!DOCTYPE note SYSTEM “Note.dtd”> … Process Server was attempting to resolve the DTD is a very strange place: The Profile’s home directory: c:\wid6.0\pf\wps\Node.dtd. I attempted […]
The com.ibm.websphere.bo.BOFactory interface defines two methods: DataObject create(namespace, name) DataObject createByElement(namespace, name) Both methods take the same two parameters and both return DataObjects. Most of the time, create() is used and returns the DataObject as expected. Sometimes, though, you’ll find that it returns null when the namespace,name pair is correct. The reason for this peculiarity […]
I’m a large supporter of the IBM DeveloperWorks Forums for WebSphere Integration Developer and WebSphere Process Server (including WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus). Having the wealth of experience on this platform that I have, I tend to respond to 75%-80% of the questions. Sometimes, a question appears that sparks my brain with a rant or deserves […]
