If you’re considering using Spring or Hibernate with IBM WebSphere
Application Server, this article explains how to configure these frameworks for
various scenarios with WebSphere Application Server. This article is not an
exhaustive review of either framework, but a critical reference to help you
successfully implement such scenarios. (Updated for Spring Framework 2.5 and
WebSphere Application Server V7.) (IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal)
When defining the usage of an authentication alias in a resource in the administration console of WebSphere Application Server, there are two places the data can be specified: Component Managed Authentication Container Managed Authentication Component Managed Authentication is used when the resource configured in the EJB’s deployment descriptor res-auth property is set to ‘Application’. Container […]
The WS-Policy specification provides a simple language for expressing
policies supported by Web services. IBM WebSphere Service Registry and Repository
supports loading, changing, and retrieving policy documents, and also supports
using policy attachments to link a given policy with a service. This can then be
used by a run time component, like an Enterprise Service Bus, to retrieve
defined policies for a particular service or operation and act accordingly.
This article shows how you can utilize standard WS-Policy documents stored in a
registry to impact run time behavior in an ESB — and then change that behavior
on the fly with no code changes or redeployment. (IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal)
One of the biggest pain points in any IBM product are the non-sensical error messages that are generated by the products when something goes wrong. The exception itself usually doesn’t provide much of a clue as to the root cause of the issue. To proceed you either need to be an expert in reading stack […]
If you are trying to force basic authentication to your web project resources in Rational Application Developer v6.1, ensure that you explicitly specify ‘BASIC’ as your authentication mechanism in the RAD Security Editor. If you do not, you can get yourself into a weird situation where defaults on one application server cause your basic authentication […]

– Migration concepts, planning and best practices
– Migration tools and scripting
– Migration end to end scenarios
In this IBM Redbooks publication, we discuss the concepts, planning, differences and migration paths, that you must understand before any attempt to migrate the source artifacts created using IBM WebSphere Studio Application Developer Integration Edition 5.1 product, to the IBM WebSphere Integration Developer 6.1.
Should you find that you have some links in your WebSphere Administration console that generate an error in the following format: com.ibm.ws.webcontainer.webapp.WebAppErrorReport: SRVE0190E: File not found: /xxxxxxxxxxx.content.main at com.ibm.ws.webcontainer.webapp.WebAppDispatcherContext.sendError(WebAppDispatcherContext.java) at com.ibm.ws.webcontainer.srt.SRTServletResponse.sendError(SRTServletResponse.java) at com.ibm.ws.webcontainer.servlet.FilterProxyServlet.dispatch(FilterProxyServlet.java) at com.ibm.ws.webcontainer.servlet.FilterProxyServlet.service(FilterProxyServlet.java) at com.ibm.ws.webcontainer.servlet.ServletWrapper.service(ServletWrapper.java(Compiled Code)) at com.ibm.ws.webcontainer.servlet.ServletWrapper.service(ServletWrapper.java(Compiled Code)) t com.ibm.ws.webcontainer.filter.WebAppFilterChain.doFilter(WebAppFilterChain.java(Compiled Code)) at com.ibm.ws.webcontainer.filter.WebAppFilterChain._doFilter(WebAppFilterChain.java(Compiled Code)) at com.ibm.wsspi.webcontainer.extension.WebExtensionProcessor.invokeFilters(WebExtensionProcessor.java) at com.ibm.ws.webcontainer.extension.DefaultExtensionProcessor.handleRequest(DefaultExtensionProcessor.java) It appears that the […]
This article describes an environment that is based on using a disk replication system in asynchronous mode. You can include this environment in a disaster recovery plan that includes a secondary data center using IBM WebSphere Process Server or WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus.
Learn how to create WebSphere BPM V6.1.2 Business Space dashboards using
the run-time artifacts from the WebSphere BPM V6.1.1 Clips and Tacks tutorial.
You’ll create a business space to manage the tasks and business forms input,
run some processes that use forms, and finally create a business space you can
use to monitor the process and tasks.

integration, and simplified administration. Find out about some of the new key
features that enable this new release to provide a flexible and reliable foundation
for your service-oriented architecture.
This presentation was subtitled: Accelerate Business agility and cost savings with websphere virtual enterprise. THis address the question, “How can you minimize the amount of ‘whitespace’ (deadspace) on machines when typical infastructure relys on being able to process peak performance”. Can we instead somehow provision for average performance and leverage more machines when the peak […]
IBM Developerworks has a nice clean looking site for SOA best practices, pulling in various content from all over the place. It’s worth checking out. It led me to an interesting link, Top 10 SOA and Web services tutorials and articles. Its interesting to see what the most popular tutorials and articles are on developerworks. […]
This session was delivered by Martin Wildberger, IBM VP and Director of the Toronto Software Lab. This session was attended by around 70 people, a pretty large turnout for one of these all-day events. Martin asked the crowd if they were from the line of business side or the IT side. I didn’t see a […]
As I wait for my next contract to start, I was given the opportunity to attend the Toronto version of the Impact Comes to You held at the IBM Toronto Lab (where I used to commute daily when employed by IBM). My goal today is to blog any interesting points or developments that occur throughout […]
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 […]
