About this tutorial
This tutorial is based on a fictional service that retrieves and returns location details. You can imagine this service as being part of a room booking system, for which information about a campus and its facilities is fetched from an external entity. You are confident that campus facility information will rarely change, so you consider this particular service as a strong candidate for local caching. When a change in location details data occurs, you will also learn how to invalidate cache entries and clear the cache.
You will learn how to:
- Define the service interface.
- Build the caching component.
- Test the caching component.
- Work with cache entries and clear the cache.
This tutorial assumes you have an intermediate understating of the Java™ programming language, some familiarity with the SCA programming model, and you are reasonably comfortable working with WSDL interfaces, data types, SCA components, and the Integration Test Client in WebSphere® Integration Developer.
This material was developed using WebSphere Integration Developer V18.104.22.168. However, the code will compile and run on all versions of the product, including the forthcoming Version 7.
This tutorial takes about 1 hour to complete.
