Comment lines: Software solution resiliency guidelines can help prevent bad behavior
Unit testing, system functional testing, performance testing, and the like have traditionally been the only kind of testing that is performed in some form or fashion when implementing a new or updated system. Unfortunately, often overlooked is resiliency testing. The result is that when resiliency issues surface, operations, administration, network, systems, and database personnel all scramble to find the root cause. This typically leads to a relatively lengthy project to ensure the solution becomes - and stays - resilient. This article offers guidelines you can follow to ensure the IT solution is more resilient to environmental changes.

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.

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.

Resource management and analysis best practices for WebSphere DataPower
WebSphere DataPower architecture often includes integration with multiple endpoints. Downstream services may be front ended by DataPower for protocol transformation or authorization, orchestrations may be performed within a DataPower service’s policy rule, and logging services are often accessed. DataPower count and duration monitors and service level management configurations are well suited to mitigate performance variances within these endpoints. This article describes some of the methods for analyzing the resources allocated to these interactions. The article also describes how you can use DataPower service management tools within policy rule connections in addition to downstream services.

Integrating IBM Business Process Manager Standard with synchronous and asynchronous applications using IBM Integration Bus V9
IBM Integration Bus V9 (IBM IB) has new functionality to facilitate integration with IBM Business Process Manager Standard (IBM BPM). For IBM BPM business process definitions (BPDs) that require access to synchronous services, the IBM BPM user can simply define the interface (input and output business objects) and export that definition to IBM IB for implementation. Accessing asynchronous services from IBM BPM BPDs is more complicated because of the strict callback mechanism that enables IBM BPM to respond to an event. This article shows you how to integrate IBM BPM with both synchronous and asynchronous applications by using IBM IB V9 to provide the connectivity.
