Microservices, SOA, and APIs: Friends or enemies? A comparison of key integration and application architecture concepts for an evolving enterprise
Comparing a microservices architecture and service-oriented architecture (SOA) is a sensitive topic and often cause for a swift source of disagreement. This article examines where these controversies stem from and considers how best to resolve them. It then looks forward to see how these concepts are combining with those of API management to enable more agile, decentralized, and resilient enterprise architectures.
Send and receive SOAP messages with large attachments in IBM Integration Bus by using the HTTPRequest node. This tutorial describes the built-in size limits of the various data types in IBM Integration Bus. It also highlights several approaches to maximize the size of data that can be successfully processed and shows an example of these techniques. You can reuse the code snippets that are provided in your own integration projects.
Configure IBM Integration Bus and IBM SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services to enable integration with SPSS Scoring Service. This integration is based on using SOAP over Java Message Service (JMS). To demonstrate this asynchronous integration, this tutorial also describes IBM Integration Bus flows. With asynchronous integration, you can improve performance and add parallel processing capabilities to integration flows.
IBM WebSphere on Cloud helps clients to balance new and existing resources to create new applications and APIs, enhance existing Java applications, and optimize everything. And, with developerWorks Premium and InterConnect 2016, you have the resources you need to help transport your starship to WebSphere on Cloud.
Automate your project deployment by using the IBM WebSphere Cast Iron Management API. With this automation in place, you can manage and monitor your Cast Iron appliances and orchestrations. In this tutorial, you learn how the Management API can help you go beyond what the Web management console and command line interfaces can provide. Also, by using configuration and a "no-code" approach, you see how to build a simple orchestration that publishes a project to an appliance.
This tutorial series explains how to use the REST management interface to manage and monitor the configuration of DataPower Gateway appliances. It describes the functions, structure, and capabilities of the REST management interface, as implemented in firmware release 184.108.40.206. This series also includes examples of common use cases with associated request and response payloads.
APIs are the digital glue that links services, applications and systems. They will drive digital transformation, innovation and new opportunities of the future. As we start to look ahead to 2016, let’s first look back to the best tutorials this past year about APIs for IBM WebSphere.
Create a Cloud Integration service in IBM Bluemix from IBM WebSphere Cast Iron Live orchestrations. By following the steps in this tutorial, you can expose a Cast Iron orchestration as a REST service in Cast Iron Live that can be accessed over a REST URL. You can also create a REST API that can be used in applications to quickly integrate with Cast Iron orchestrations.
The expanded functions in Virtual Member Manager (VMM), a part of IBM WebSphere Application Server, mean you can configure all V3-compliant LDAP repositories—both default and non-default—as custom repositories. In this tutorial, you learn about two methods to configure the custom LDAP repositories: the administrative console or the wsadmin command line interface.
Automating IT operations has long been a desired objective for streamlining notoriously repetitive tasks and avoiding frustrating, inefficient rework.
