Implementing the side cache pattern with IBM Integration Bus and IBM WebSphere DataPower XC10
IBM Integration Bus V9 supports two methods of caching data -- an embedded global cache (embedded version of WebSphere eXtreme Scale), or an external grid. When connecting to an external grid, IBM Integration Bus hosts the WebSphere eXtreme Scale client, and therefore a separate WebSphere eXtreme Scale installation or an appliance is required, such as a WebSphere DataPower XC10 appliance. This article shows you how to configure IBM Integration Bus with a WebSphere DataPower XC10 appliance and back-end relational database management system to implement a side cache pattern, and describes how this configuration can reduce response time and improve performance.

Efficient, scalable caching using ESQL shared variables in WebSphere Message Broker and IBM Integration Bus
ESQL shared variables are often used to cache the contents of database tables in WebSphere Message Broker and IBM Integration Bus. The problem with this approach is that ESQL SELECT operations perform sequential searches, which become progressively slower as the cache grows. This article introduces a new way of structuring the cache that scales well, remaining faster than accessing the database even when exceeding 10,000 rows. The new cache structure is transparent to applications, so you can safely convert existing caches, and significantly reduce response time and CPU usage.

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.

Rational Application Developer enhancements for WebSphere Optimized Local Adapters present new opportunities for end to end EIS integration
Enhancements to IBM Rational Application Developer for WebSphere Software V9.0.1 added new capabilities for application integration between disparate enterprise environments, such as those made up of IBM WebSphere Application Server, CICS, IMS, and batch processing on z/OS, and environments that contain SAP, Oracle, Seibel, and other IBM WebSphere Adapter-supported enterprise information systems. Support for optimized local adapters is now included in Rational Application Developer, offering optimized bi-directional calling between WebSphere Application Server for z/OS and external address space applications on the same z/OS system. Combining optimized local adapters with the WebSphere Adapters support presents many new opportunities for real time interactions between applications and environments that were too complex to realistically handle in the past. This article presents one such scenario, in which a CICS application uses optimized local adapters and WebSphere Application Server for z/OS to communicate with applications running on SAP servers.

An introduction to service mapping: Integrating evolving web services in WebSphere Application Server V8.5.5
SOAs and web services evolve over time — new versions of services are deployed or brand new services must be integrated with existing clients. Typically, development effort must be expended to ensure that web service clients continue to work with the web service providers. IBM WebSphere Application Server V8.5.5 and IBM Rational Application Developer V9.0 introduce service mapping, a feature that enables you to remove the dependence of the service client on both the location and interface of the service provider via the interception, routing, and transformation of requests and responses between service clients and service providers. This article explains the concepts of service mapping and provides a working example, showing how multiple versions of a service provider can be called by the original service client via the development and use of service mapping technologies.

Best practices for converting wsadmin scripts from Jacl to Jython
This article describes best practices for manual and automatic conversion of Jacl script to Jython. Jacl and Jython are types of WebSphereAdministration Scripting (wsadmin scripts), which is the preferred way to manage servers and applications on WebSphere Application Server. Of the two types of wsadmin scripts, Jython is the preferred scripting method since WebSphere Application Server V7. Future investment will focus on Jython as development on Jacl stabilizes. Thus, to ease future maintenance, convert your wsadmin scripts from Jacl to Jython.

Get started with the Data Format Description Language
In this age of big data, the bulk of the data begging to be analyzed is not XML, but rather it is other structured and semi-structured formats, both text and binary. Until now, no open standard has been developed that is capable of describing a wide variety of such data formats. Learn about the Open Grid Forum (OGF) proposed recommendation for a powerful language that describes many different data formats, the Data Format Description Language (DFDL).
