Yet again, It’s been awhile since I’ve updated the blog.. I’ve been busy getting married and I’ve made the decision to leave Perficient and try my hand at independent consulting in Canada. If you’d like to talk about what services I can provide, feel free to hit me up on one of the ten thousand […]
Yes, I’m still alive. Things have been pretty slow this year and I haven’t had all that much to say here at DanZrobok.com. It looks like business is picking up in the 4th quarter and I find myself with an opportunity to work with iTKO Lisa, an SOA Testing tool. I’ll get into more details […]
Just incase you were thinking of writing some IBM Certifications, there will be a new promotion in July called Take It Again which allows you to rewrite a failed certification test free. I have to re-write my WebSphere Integration Developer, WebSphere Process Server and DataPower certifications and am waiting for this promo to start before […]
Yes I know, I’ve been an extremely delinquent blogger in 2009. I resolve to change that this month.
As I mentioned before, I wanted to create a demo of DataPower vs the WBI Suite for the conference that I attended today. The goal was to try and show the ‘wow’ factor of DataPower and turn a product that most only know from marketing slides into something real that could insprise the attendees. I […]

Happy Halloween. Here is my WebSphere Integration Developer costume I sported two years ago. I’m a java component featuring fly over feedback and a busted attempt at a build.
I have to admit that I’ve been a very poor blogger over the last two months or so. It has more to do with a lack of day-to-day hands on with the IBM suite than a lack of topics to discuss. I’m currently back with IBM (on a contract basis) working on an IBM Software […]

I’m currently in-between contracts right now, which means I don’t have my hands on a tool on a daily basis finding bugs and getting frustrated. I’m taking this time as a little break and tinkering with Linux and generally decompressing from a hectic year and a half at Perficient. Not to worry, once I’m back […]
From the blog ‘Ben means Business‘, Ben Jones lists the 7 reasons why corporate blogs suck. I really like the first reason: Reason#1: Fear of Transparency People who read blogs expect to “know” the author, and participate in discussions with the author and other readers. They enjoy an atmosphere that is genuine and has a […]
I think some of my readers need a refresher course on exactly what I’m doing here and everything that I’ve contributed to the external IBM community (aka, the community that IBM does next to nothing to help thrive). I constantly post and answer questions of all levels in the two external newsgroups for WebSphere Integration […]
I’ve been running danZrobok.com now for about four months now and I’m curious as to who my readers are. Feel free to comment to this post as an introduction. I’m always in the market for topics to talk about in the blog or features of the IBM Suite of products that you’d like to know […]
As my gig here in Toronto doing WebSphere Process Server implementations comes to a close, I’m going to be moving on to a new opportunity using Oracle Fusion and Oracle BPEL. This should be very interesting as I will be able to directly compare and contrast the two integration engines from the perspective of someone […]
I re-wrote IBM DataPower Certification test 284 over the weekend and passed with a 75% when requiring a 60%. Taking the course made my life a lot easier. I still spent two hours writing and reviewing the answers but I was a lot more confident about passing when I ended the test. I did notice […]
