Using WebSphere MQ bindings in WebSphere ESB, Part 2: Creating MQ headers using the WebSphere ESB MQ Structures API
WebSphere ESB and WebSphere Process Server enable conversion between message protocols such as SOAP and MQ. When a request message is received in SOAP, it does not contain the message headers required by WebSphere MQ. The WebSphere MQ binding can add the required headers automatically, but these headers are not configurable. This article shows you how to use the MQ structures Java API to add an MQ header from a custom mediation. It includes sample code for creating the MQ structures required by the WebSphere MQ binding.

IBM SOA Foundation product integration: A complete ESB Gateway solution featuring WebSphere DataPower, Tivoli Access Manager, and WebSphere Service Registry and Repository
Leveraging the concept of a service-oriented architecture usually brings with it the ability to connect an increasing number of systems within an enterprise -- but also across enterprises. While enabling a higher degree of automation and reduced processing time, this also leads to growing concern about managing and securing the underlying connections between heterogeneous IT systems. This article describes how to address these concerns by implementing an ESB gateway using three of the products within the IBM SOA Foundation platform, beginning with integrating a IBM WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliance with IBM Tivoli Access Manager for security, and then adding IBM WebSphere Service Registry and Repository for endpoint address management.

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.
