Software as a Service: Web service mediation patterns for dynamic routing of multiple tenant requests using WebSphere Business Services Fabric

Explore one of three IBM middleware based mediation patterns for rapid enablement of multi-tenancy for existing Web services implementations. The pattern in this demo uses WebSphere Business Services Fabric. The remaining two patterns show the use of WebSphere Enterprise Services Bus and WebSphere DataPower. In the demo, multi-tenancy is enabled for an existing single tenant credit check service by introducing a WebSphere Business Services Fabric based mediation pattern layer. This pattern layer uses a new TenantID assertion defined as an extension to the core WebSphere Business Services Fabric ontology. The assertion acts on properties defined in the Web services context to dynamically route credit check service requests from users for a particular tenant bank to service endpoints dedicated to that bank. The WebSphere Business Services Fabric subscription manager is used to enroll users and organization to the credit check service and the WebSphere Business Services Fabric performance manager is used to view service usage logs for each tenant.
