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)
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 […]
V6.1.2 has been released for WebSphere Integration Developer and WebSphere Process Server. You can read the list of features. 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 […]
A handy resource for seeing what exactly is contained in a new release of software are the APAR fix lists published by IBM. They contain a list of every APAR that is resolved and you can click to get more information. You can find them for: WebSphere Application Server 6.0.2 WebSphere Application Server 6.1 WebSphere […]

– Learn valuable tips for tuning
– Get the latest best practices
– Try the example settings
This IBM® Redpaper was produced by the IBM WebSphere® Process Server, WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus, WebSphere Adapters, and WebSphere Business Monitor performance teams in Austin Texas, Böblingen Germany, and Hursley England.
I had a custom snippet in my map between two string attributes and a list of business objects. The idea being that each string from the source should becomes an entry in the business object list with a wrapper. No problem. I wrote up the snippet to create the destination business object (since it does […]
We had a WebSphere Adapter for JDBC export in our module, and it was throwing the following exception: [5/27/08 17:55:52:315 EDT] 0000006b NUXInResource I PollEventManagerWorker run() CWYBS0011I: Polling has started.

Looking for a way to manage the interoperability among applications using
different protocols that need to exchange confidential data? Consider combining the
functionality of IBM WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus and IBM WebSphere DataPower
SOA Appliances. Find out how you can get a secure, agile, and extendible solution
with a little effort in terms of code.
This two-part article series shows you how to use SOAP over Java Message Service
(JMS) in IBM WebSphere Process Server and IBM WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus. Learn
how to set up and use SOAP over JMS as configured by default by the IBM
WebSphere Integration Developer tool and how to enable the use of the IBM WebSphere
MQ JMS provider via configuration. In this article, Part 1 of the series, you create and
invoke a Web service using SOAP over JMS and an end-to-end application example, covering
the full process of creating, building, deploying, and testing the applications.
Scenarios covering both point-to-point and publish/subscribe messaging walk you
through the process. In the second article in this series, you’ll
reconfigure a Web service that uses the SOAP over JMS protocol to enable the use of
WebSphere MQ as the JMS provider and allow the transport of SOAP messages via
WebSphere MQ queues.

I have a solution that I’m working on that involves Mediation Flow Components. Recently, the namespace of a service I consume changed. This service throws two known faults whose namespace also changed. When I modified by Mediation Flow Component to ‘Synchronize Interface/References from component TO implemenation’ it didn’t bother to update the fault terminals. In […]
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 […]
From DeveloperWorks, Configuring SCA HTTP binding to enable real-life scenarios You can use HTTP bindings supported by IBM® WebSphere® Integration Developer Version 6.1 in many common real-life integration scenarios involving Service Component Architecture (SCA) applications. For example, by properly configuring the HTTP bindings you can expose SCA applications as a simple HTTP URL using HTTP […]
Check out the latest features introduced into IBM WebSphere Enterprise
Service Bus V6.1 and its associated tooling, IBM WebSphere Integration Developer.
This article describes the transport protocol binding, data
bindings, and administrative and mediation support. You should have basic
knowledge of the features and functions of previous versions of WebSphere Enterprise
Service Bus to follow along with this article.
Yesterday, I blathered on about how great DataPower would be for usage in WebSphere Process Server. Your developer would be able to stay completely inside the Generic Business Object (GBO) data view while leveraging DataPower’s awesome ability to transform efficiently. Very neat indeed. An interesting is scenario where DataPower IS the ESB. No WebSphere Process […]
A quick tip on how to emit a CBE. I usually put this block of code into a utility java project and add it to my module’s dependency editor so I can emit events in my modules. ECSEmitter emitter = new ECSEmitter(“com/ibm/events/configuration/emitter/Default”, null); // create common base event eventCommonBaseEvent cbe = emitter.createCommonBaseEvent(null); // Work your […]
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 […]
