This is the first in a series of articles that explore the source artifacts migration capabilities provided in IBM WebSphere Process Server v6.0, specifically to support migration from WebSphere InterChange Server. It guides you through the migration of a simple WebSphere InterChange Server solution and the steps to test the migrated applications using the Visual Test Connector (VTC). A simple sample WebSphere InterChange Server solution demonstrates a successful migration with no required manual workarounds.
What is this article series about?
WebSphere® Process Server, the next generation of business integration software from IBM®, is based on a service-oriented architecture (SOA) that embraces open standards and is also the recommended migration target for WebSphere InterChange Server. WebSphere Integration Developer v6.0, based on Eclipse 3.0, is the Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that complements WebSphere Process Server and introduces a whole new paradigm of component-based development.
This article walks you through the migration of a simple WebSphere InterChange Server solution using the migration support provided in WebSphere Process Server. You learn how to perform a migration with WebSphere Process Server command line migration tool, and then, perform the same migration with WebSphere Integration Developer. Finally, you'll use the Visual Test Connector (VTC) to test that the migrated applications are functioning.
Part 2 of this series investigates the types of artifacts that are generated when you perform the migration using the same simple WebSphere InterChange Server solution provided in this article. Part 2 will be available later next month.
Part 3 of this series walks you through the migration of a complex WebSphere InterChange Server solution, discusses limitations of the current migration support, and explores some workarounds along the way.
