This is the course that I am attending this week. This will be nice as I’ll have a hardcopy of the course contents. Also, being able to go through the content slowly over a week with hands-on usage of the datapower box will be a huge bonus. When I was trying to learn the machine […]
Sometimes the stars just align perfectly. I’m trying to get my DataPower Certification and IBM’s business partner relations team is offering a free course on DataPower next week in Markham. It pays to be in a city with an IBM Office. I’ll be in attendance there and hopefully sitting in the room for 5 days […]
I have a theory as to why I don’t see my mapped data objects in my result business object. I’ll give a write up once I figure out what’s going on. I was ready to point fingers all over the product stack, but it looks like (as always) the finger will end up on me, […]
Mapping logic between two business objects or the secret plans for the next Intel Processor? Simply follow path ‘A’ from the Business Object on the left to the destination ‘B’ on the right. Pack a lunch, you may be there a while.
It’s a Canadian holiday on Monday, so I’ll be back blogging on Tuesday. Cheers.
IBM provides a variety of self-help tools and other support resources to
help you maintain and troubleshoot systems that are based on WebSphere products. In
addition to these, IBM also provides three levels of Premium Support that can be
customized and added on to your Passport Advantage support agreement. This article
describes the advantages of IBM Software Premium Support and how these additional
services would impact your day-to-day operations. (IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal)
I will arrive from Las Vegas in the early monday morning red-eye, so don’t expect any updates from me today. I am still working on writing up my notes from a very good WTSC2008 session about how to be an “excellent IT Architect” amongst some other goodies from Las Vegas.
I wrote three certification tests: Test 253, IBM WebSphere Application Server, Network Deployment Test 142, XML 1.1 and Related Technologies Test 664, SOA Fundamentals Test 253, IBM WebSphere Application Server, Network Deployment As I had mentioned before, I attended a WAS 6.1 Administration business partner course run out of the IBM Toronto Lab. I have […]
I was recently asked about where to find resources on WebSphere Process Server and WebSphere Integration Developer in order to pass certification tests 093 and 094. I responded to basically search developerworks for articles along with IBM RedBooks. I didn’t really like responding without concrete links, so I did a little browsing of the site […]
Well I must say I was taken aback when I saw that that my SOA Jam ESB question was responded to by Steve Mills: Steve Mills is a senior vice president and group executive, IBM Software Group. In this capacity he is responsible for directing the development, marketing, sales and support of IBM’s software portfolio. […]
If you are attending Impact 2008, don’t forget that you are allowed to write three IBM certification tests for free this week! I’m a big fan of free, so I always max out my conference allotment. If you need some suggestions for tests, check out my previous entries about my impressions having written SOA Solution […]
The marketing says that it’s WebSphere’s 10th birthday on Tuesday. To celebrate, IBM is asking for revised lyrics to the well-known Birthday song. Never being one to pass up on a free chance at bizarre creativity, I’ve shilled-out and submitted: WebSphere *IS* big blue What Can it not Do? We praise you, Dear WebSphere Ten […]
From the IBM Innov8 game. Premonition of the future? (Both sides??) Damn, she stole my gimmick should I ever be back on the job market. I’m not sure if a panhandler should be dressed better than the people she’s begging from though. The collared shirt probably has to go.
Sometimes you have to chuckle at the titles of PMRs. I came across this one today: “Information not included in the user guide for IBM WebSphere Adapter for FTP V6.0.2” Where they admit they forgot very minor details like the fact you have to create all the directories manually or the ftp location where inbound […]
Go figure, I was googling for “WebSphere Process Server” and came across an AlphaWorks project: SCA Component for Ruby with IBM WebSphere Process Server. Unlike the article that ‘integrated’ the two via Web Services, this project will give you the ability to run Ruby from inside a component.
