Exploring the Enterprise Service Bus: Part 4: Federated connectivity in the enterprise
Driven by increasingly sophisticated business needs, service-oriented architectures have become more widespread, more mature and more sophisticated. A key driver of this growing sophistication is the need for multiple business units to cooperate and contribute to the overall business of the enterprise. From a business perspective, the result is generally called a federation or a federated enterprise. From an IT perspective, the enabler of a federated enterprise is often called a federated ESB, reflecting the role the ESB plays in providing service connectivity in SOA. But the ESB is just one part of an infrastructure that provides service connectivity in SOA, so it is more appropriate to discuss federated connectivity. This article describes the principles of federated connectivity and suggests an approach for creating efficient and effective federated topologies in SOA.

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.

Establish a policy-driven SOA using WebSphere Service Registry and Repository and WebSphere ESB
The WS-Policy specification provides a simple language for expressing policies supported by Web services. IBM WebSphere Service Registry and Repository supports loading, changing, and retrieving policy documents, and also supports using policy attachments to link a given policy with a service. This can then be used by a run time component, like an Enterprise Service Bus, to retrieve defined policies for a particular service or operation and act accordingly. This article shows how you can utilize standard WS-Policy documents stored in a registry to impact run time behavior in an ESB -- and then change that behavior on the fly with no code changes or redeployment.

Web services with SOAP over JMS in IBM WebSphere Process Server or IBM WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus, Part 2: Using the IBM WebSphere MQ JMS provider
The IBM WebSphere Process Server and IBM WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus products both include support for invoking and providing Web services. Part 1 of this article series covered the support of the SOAP over Java Message Service (JMS) protocol in WebSphere Process Server and WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus V6.02 and V6.1. This second installment of the series reveals how to change the referenced Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI) resources of SOAP over JMS exports and imports so that they can receive and send SOAP messages using the IBM WebSphere MQ JMS provider rather than the Service Integration Bus (SIBus) JMS provider. To follow along with this article, you should know how to create modules in IBM WebSphere Integration Developer and how to create WebSphere MQ resources.

IBM SOA Foundation product integration: Managing your WebSphere-based SOA solution
As more companies are putting service oriented solutions -- including a portfolio of services -- into production, the role of managing of these solutions becomes increasingly important. This ranges from monitoring individual services with respect to their associated service level agreements and the discovery of ”rogue” services that do not follow established protocols, all the way to the active management of an entire environment of applications, servers, and the networks that connect them. This part of our series on integrating products of the IBM SOA Foundation looks at how to manage a WebSphere-based SOA solution with IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for SOA.

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.

Web services with SOAP over JMS in IBM WebSphere Process Server or IBM WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus, Part 1: Using the SIBus JMS provider
This two-part article series shows you how to use SOAP over Java Message Service (JMS) in IBM WebSphere Process Server and IBM WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus. Learn how to set up and use SOAP over JMS as configured by default by the IBM WebSphere Integration Developer tool and how to enable the use of the IBM WebSphere MQ JMS provider via configuration. In this article, Part 1 of the series, you create and invoke a Web service using SOAP over JMS and an end-to-end application example, covering the full process of creating, building, deploying, and testing the applications. Scenarios covering both point-to-point and publish/subscribe messaging walk you through the process. In the second article in this series, you'll reconfigure a Web service that uses the SOAP over JMS protocol to enable the use of WebSphere MQ as the JMS provider and allow the transport of SOAP messages via WebSphere MQ queues.

IBM SOA Foundation product integration: Using WebSphere Transformation Extender with IBM Enterprise Service Bus products
The transformation to a service-oriented architecture (SOA) includes aspects that cover the entire lifecycle of a solution, from inception, to design and development, to its ultimate deployment and management. IBM published an SOA Reference Architecture that helps structure and position these aspects into a number of different components, and the IBM SOA Foundation includes a set of products that address specific components within the overall architecture. This article is the first of several that will discuss how products that are part of the IBM SOA Foundation can be used together. First up: how to add advanced transformation capabilities to IBM's set of Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) products: WebSphere Message Broker, WebSphere ESB, and WebSphere DataPower.

Resilient scatter-gather ESB messaging design with message-driven beans
This article presents a simple and resilient design to resolve a common scatter-gather application integration problem. One message-driven bean (MDB) receives a request message from a requester and publishes it to multiple providers, while another MDB aggregates the replies from the providers and sends the aggregate to the requester. The scatter-gather design resilience relies on powerful EJB and JMS provider runtime services, message delivery assured by the JMS provider, EJB transaction management, and automatic triggering of an MDB resulting from arrival of a message at the MDB-specified destination. The article focuses on the design and deployment of the scatter-gather components.
