Converting COM request to web service request
Since its introduction, web service has become a standard mechanism for integration between applications. However, there are many applications written in languages that do not provide a strong support for web service - for example Visual C++ V6.0 or Visual Basic V6.0. One approach to enable these applications is to have an adaptor that can convert a request into a web service call. This tutorial describes how to develop this adaptor implemented as a DCOM server using C#. It basically receives a COM request and forward the request to a web service endpoint. It also provides steps on how to make a COM request in C++ and shows steps on how to implement a Java web service. In short, it demonstrates how web service interoperability on the .NET and JEE platform can be achieved. C# code is developed using Microsoft Visual Studio, while the web services is developed using Rational Application Developer V7.5 and deployed on the WebSphere Application Server V7.0 test environment.

High-performance solution to feeding a data warehouse with real-time data, Part 2: Explore the integration options with staging tables and WebSphere MQ messages
Feeding a data warehouse with changes from the source database can be very expensive. If the extraction is only done with SQL, there is no way to easily identify the rows that have been changed. IBM InfoSphere(TM) Replication Server can detect changed data by reading only the database log. This series shows how to use InfoSphere Replication Server to efficiently extract only the changed data and how to pass the changes to IBM InfoSphere DataStage(R) to feed the data warehouse. Part 1 of the 2-part series provided an overview of these products and how they can work together. In this Part 2, explore two integration options: using WebSphere(R) MQ messages with InfoSphere Event Publisher and using staging tables.
