This course teaches students how to build and deploy mediation integration solutions using WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus and WebSphere Integration Developer.
WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus enables a service-oriented architecture (SOA) by providing a platform for business applications requiring a complex integration that will use different technologies. WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus supports a variety of integration bindings, including Service Component Architecture (SCA), Java Message Service (JMS), HTTP, and Web services. In addition, the WebSphere Integration Developer tool set can be used to create integration solutions by utilizing simplified integration mechanisms.
In this course, students learn the concepts, architecture, components, processes, and procedures involved in implementing an integration solution. In addition, this course enables students to design, develop, and test the mediation integration for many of the supported types of integration bindings. Students create integration solutions with WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus and the WebSphere Integration Developer tool set, and learn about mediation modules, mediation flow components, mediation primitives, unified common data structures such as the service message object (SMO), mediation module deployment, and the development-to-deployment life cycle for mediations. Students also learn how WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus supports an SOA by working with a variety of messaging protocols, using a broad range of interaction models, leveraging advanced Web services support, and supporting Web 2.0 applications.
In hands-on laboratory exercises, students create several mediation solutions by employing various technologies, such as JMS transport, HTTP binding, the JCA flat file adapters, mediation primitives, mediation flow components, and standard WebSphere MQ messages. The exercises also enable students to create a Common Event Infrastructure (CEI) event using the event emitter primitive, as well as business object maps and Extensible Stylesheet Language transformations to develop message relationships. Students also learn how to create various stand-alone utilities for testing and accessing the data on queues.
In additional exercises, students add plug-ins and create a mediation module that uses dynamic endpoints, and learn how to use Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) bindings and the JCA Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) adapter, as well as Web services gateways with Web services bindings.
This basic course is designed for integration developers, system administrators, support engineers, and technical sales and marketing professionals.
