LDAP as a Naming Service in Enterprise Application Integration
In enterprise integrations, applications across different systems are integrated by various means and techniques. In such large-scale integration, there is a need to identify the key integration components or elements and maintain them in a secure centralized location that provides easy and dynamic access. Here, Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is used as a naming service to discover most of the common integration elements. LDAP satisfies the needs and challenges that are faced in a typical integration scenario. The article explains how the LDAP-based naming service is used for application integration. The scenario explains how the JMS queue adapter of IBM Sterling B2B Integrator is integrated with another downstream system, WebSphere MQ. The JMS adapter application looks up the OpenLDAP registry for key integration elements, such as queue connection details. Using these integration parameters, the JMS adapter connects to the appropriate queue in WebSphere MQ and delivers the message.

Comment lines: Defeat image sprawl, once and for all
Virtualization and cloud computing make it very easy to create new virtual images, but as image catalogs grow, finding and locating the right images gets harder. New images are created because it is easier to create a new image than it is to figure out what existing image might be reusable, creating "image sprawl." Unless you address how to more effectively build and manage your virtual images, you will not realize the full benefits of the cloud. Two new IBM capabilities, the Virtual Image Library and the Image Construction and Composition Tool, can help you quickly understand the content of your images and build reusable, parameterized images.

Configure WebSphere Commerce with WebSphere eXtreme Scale to improve performance, scale, and your competitive edge
IBM WebSphere Commerce has become the one of the leading solutions for web retail. WebSphere Commerce makes extensive use of the WebSphere dynamic cache feature for performance optimization. IBM WebSphere eXtreme Scale is IBM’s powerful elastic cache solution that can provide both scale and performance improvement to meet increasing business demands. WebSphere Commerce can leverage WebSphere eXtreme Scale caching by eliminating duplicate dynamic cache entries and the frequent invalidation processing that's necessary to keep the cache synchronized during high stress situations. The combination of WebSphere Commerce and WebSphere eXtreme Scale can achieve a potential reduction in response time and facilitate faster start time for new WebSphere Commerce servers added to a cluster. Perhaps just as impressive is the fact this can be accomplished with relatively simple configuration changes. This article is a guide to moving from a WebSphere Commerce solution using the default dynamic cache provider to one that leverages WebSphere eXtreme Scale as the dynamic cache provider.
