MDM AE pMDM with RESTful web services
Previously, interactions with MDM Operational server were possible with EJB/RMI, JMS, JAX-WS and JAX-
Possible payloads that are accepted are application/xml and application/json. JSON support was added in v11.4 FP1.
It is important to note that all REST interaction are using one RESTful service “MDMWSRESTful”, PUT method type only and accessed via URI http
The same xml request/response payload used for EJB/RMI is used for REST interactions.
For the full list of capabilities and supported request headers consult the following documentation link:
Interacting with MDMRESTful service
Here’s a sample client leveraging Apache Wink demonstrating an MDM RESTful call:
The above code will submitting an MDM xml payload and expecting back an xml response.
This is determined by the ‘Content-type’ and ‘Accept’ http header properties.
Here’s a look at a getParty xml payload and response:
The same request/response as JSON, using application/json, as both content-type and accept:
The default MDM JSON model is actually based on the core XML schema model (MDMCommon.xsd and MDMDomains.xsd). Internally, MDM will validate the JSON using these schemas.
We use a “Mapped notation” api to build the JSON. A couple things to note about this implementation:
Don’t want to write any code to test your MDM services?
Choose “PUT” as the HTTP method
curl --user "mdmadmin:mdmadmin" -X PUT
If you've used previous versions of the workbench, one of the first changes you'll hit is that you no longer need to run the developer environment setup tool when you create a new workspace. In version 11, no projects need to be imported into the workspace, and you use the same installer to setup a local test server on your development machine as you would to install a production system.
Full development environment install
If you have a completely clean machine, the simplest way to get started is to use the workbench typical install. This will install DB2, Rational Application Developer, and WebSphere Application Server, along with MDM Server and the workbench, i.e. everything you need for a full development and test environment in one go. Here's how to get everything ready to run a typical install...
Firstly, you'll need to download all the typical install images. The following part numbers are required for a full MDM Workbench v11 typical install:
CIM6NEN, CIM6PEN, CIR9NML, CIR9PML, CIR9QML, CIR9RML, CIR9SML, CIR9TML, CIR9UML, CIR9VML, CIE5FML, CIE5GML, CIE5HML, CIE5IML, CI6XNML, CI6XPML, CI6XQML
Important: If you are about to install MDM but downloaded the install images before 17th October 2013, you must download the product refresh first.
Once you have all the install images downloaded, the contents must be extracted into a specific dire
After extracting all the install images, open the install launchpad, which you can find in the MDM\disk1 directory (there are 32 and 64 bit versions). The typical workbench install link is right at the bottom of the launchpad:
When the install starts, you should be able to click through all the panels without changing anything:
Make sure you confirm that the IVT tests pass at the end of the install and, if they did, you're ready to start developing for MDM v11!
Note: you should change the defa
Workbench only install
If you don't want a local server to test changes on, installing the workbench is much quicker, since DB2, WebSphere Application Server and the server install are not required. In this case, you'll only need the following part numbers:
CIM7CML, CIR9TML, CIR9UML, CIR9VML, CIE5FML, CIE5GML, CIE5HML, CIE5IML
The launchpad doesn't support this scenario, so you have to install Installation Manager manually, add
Alternatively, you can use the Installation Manager command line to install Rational Application Developer and the workbench in one step. For example, assuming you extract the install images in the same structure as for a typical install:
imcl install com.
A typical install is ideal for demos or evaluating MDM but to set up developer environments I would recommend installing manually. You'll also need to do this if the typical install does not support your environment. The following blog post describes the manual install process:
There is also a wiki page with an up-to-date* list of install related information.

From version 11.4 FixPack 3 the MDM Application Toolkit has a new hierarchy widget, which replaces the now deprecated MDM Tree coach view.
This new widget, the MDM Hierarchy coach view uses the latest in web visualisation technology to render hierarchies in BPM coaches. As well as using this new technology the MDM Hierarchy coach view also has a new method of interacting with the MDM operational server.
To highlight some of the new features, this post presents a step-by-step guide of how to get up and running with the new MDM Hierarchy coach view. I will assume a degree of familiarity with IBM BPM, in particular Process Designer.
Step 1: Drag and drop the MDM Hierarchy coach view from the palette onto the canvas, it is listed under the MDMAT grouping.
Switch to the configuration tab. You will notice that most of the fields have default values. In the rootNodeId field enter the values for the hierarchy and a node in the hierarchy in the format <hie
Step 2: Press the “Run” button in BPM. This will launch a browser, showing the coach you have just created. The hierarchy will be visible, and should render data if it has been set up correctly.
That is all that is required to get the MDM Hierarchy coach view up and running.
The coach view has a set of other configuration options; please see the documentation for more details on the configuration options.
The MDM Hierarchy coach view can be augmented by connecting it to a set of other coach views, which provide pop-up dialogs with additional behaviour that complements the hierarchy. These are the MDM Hierarchy Dialog Add, the MDM Hierarchy Dialog Details, the MDM Hierarchy Dialog Error and MDM Hierarchy Dialog MultiParent.
While each of these coach views can be added independently, the instructions below will guide you through adding them all.
Step 1: Adding the other coach views.
Drag and drop the MDM Hierarchy Dialog Add, the MDM Hierarchy Dialog Details, the MDM Hierarchy Dialog Error and MDM Hierarchy Dialog MultiParent on to the canvas that contains the MDM Hierarchy coach view.
Step 2: Create a new MDM_
Switch to the variables tab. Create a new Private variable, call it “events”. Change the Variable Type to MDM_
Step 3: Configure all of the widgets to use the same, shared event framework. Switch back to the Coaches view. For each coach, select it on the canvas, then select the Configuration tab at the bottom.
Locate the EventFramework configuration option; click the purple button next to the label. Then click the Select button to the right hand side. Find the variable you created in Step 2 (events) and select it. Do this for each of the widgets.
Step 4: Configure the visibility for each of the dialog coach views; this step should not be performed on the MDM Hierarchy coach view.
Select the coach view, then click the Visibility tab at the bottom. Leave source as “Value” then press the purple button next to the Visibility label. Press the Select button, then expand the events variable, expand the appropriate event, then select the visibility entry. Each of the different dialogs should be configured against its specific event. The MDM Hierarchy Dialog Add should be configured to use the addNode event; the MDM Hierarchy Dialog Details should be configured to use the nodeDetails event; the MDM Hierarchy Dialog MuliParent should be configured to use the multiParent event; the MDM Hierarchy Error Details should be configured to use the error event.
Step 5: Click the “Run” button in BPM.
The tree now has additional behaviour, if you right click on a node a pop-up dialog should now appear that will display additional data about the node. The add button on this dialog will launch the add dialog that can be used to add nodes into the hierarchy. If a node in the hierarchy has multiple parents in the hierarchy an icon indicating this is displayed to the right of the node, the MultiParent dialog will be launched if that icon is clicked and allows users to re-focus the hierarchy on the different parent nodes.
This brief post has demonstrated how to use the new MDM Hierarchy and associated coach views. In future posts more advanced topics, such as replacing the ajax service which supply the data to the hierarchy, and how to create custom widgets that use the event framework will be explored.

MDM Workbench v11 is here !
With huge pride, we have just shipped the version eleven of MDM, including the new unified MDM Workbench v11. It's been nearly 2 years in the making, and represents the biggest change to the MDM tooling in recent years. In this article we outline these changes and give the reader familiar with previous MDM tools a gentle introduction to what they can expect when they get their hands on the new tools.
The main changes made for v11 workbench can broadly be categorized under the titles unification, simplification and integration.
Unification is a drive to combine the tools from the v10.1 standard edition (formerly Initiate tools) and the tools from the v10.1 advanced edition into a single set of tools which run in the same Rational Application Developer (RAD) environment. Where the tools were inconsistent, or overlap existed we adopted common approach to make sure both sets of tools work together in a unified tooling environment.
An example of unification: Consistent use of the perspectives, showing the new MDM development perspective.
We want all the tools to be simpler. We aim to cut the time it takes to get value out of the MDM platform; automating where possible to relieve solution developers of repetitive tasks and reducing the amount of knowledge needs to get something working.
Toward this goal the workbench has made these changes :
An example of the way version is simpler can be seen by comparing a version 10.1 workspace against a version 11 workspace:
"No man is an island" as the saying goes, and the same is true for products. MDM tools now play a wider role in enabling the ingestion and distribution of information in an MDM solution.
Enhancements in this area include:
For example: Our list of export wizards has been expanded to help push MDM metadata to more remote systems.
In summary, we hope you like the changes we've made to the tools, and hope you find that creating, configuring and developing an MDM solution is now quicker and easier than ever before.

This document outlines how Physical MDM customisations can be built from source artefacts in an automated build and test system. This document does not aim to be a complete guide on this topic, but rather to point the way to how some detailed steps can be implemented using examples.
The MDM Advanced or Standard editions both include the MDM Workbench. In version 11.0 and beyond the MDM Workbench is used by solution developers to create artefacts which customise the MDM solution for the physical, virtual and hybrid implementation styles. These source code artefacts are typically built into a Composite Bundle Archive (CBA) and deployed to WebSphere where they augment the functionality already available in the MDM Server Enterprise Business Application (EBA).
A good practice amongst MDM solution developers is to create an automated build process such that customisation source code is checked-in to a code control repository, and an automated build process takes those source files and builds the CBA ready for deploying onto post-build test systems, placing built artefacts into a second repository or shared file system.
Some automated systems take this “build” concept further, by automating the deployment of such built artefacts to test systems, which in turn report back on the “health” of the build, how many tests passed and failed, and generally quickly provide valuable feedback to developers whether recent changes broke the solution or not. Project managers overseeing such projects are able to reduce project risk by adopting this continuous delivery processes, and changes to MDM solutions become more reliable and safer as a result.
To add MDM solutions to such a continuous build environment it is necessary to:
This article is mostly concerned with step #7 – building source artefacts.
2. Materials and prerequisites
This article is accompanied by a collection of example scripts. We do not intend that these are used directly, but as an example of how you may wish to implement your own automated build process.
The current solution consists of four main files:
In order for the scripts to work, the machine running the scripts needs to have the following products installed:
To run the Ant scripts the user needs to run mdm_wb_build.xml as a build file.
The script contains only the “runBuild” target.
The target checks that necessary properties, such as Eclipse Home, date and time stamps and output folder prefix are set. Provided these properties do exist, it creates a folder based on OutputFolderPrefix and date and time, within which “logs”, “CBAExport” and “workspace” folders are created.
The logs folder contains “MDM
generateDevProject: BUILD SUCCESSFUL
workspaceBuild: BUILD SUCCESSFUL
exportCBA: BUILD SUCCESSFUL
End of report.
The CBAExport folder contains all of the exported CBAs.
The workspace folder contains a local copy of build artefacts.
After the directories have been created, the script checks which operating system it is running on and sets the isLinux or isWindows property to “true” as appropriate and calls either runAnt.sh or runAnt.bat to run a headless Eclipse process. The relevant file (either the batch or the shell script) should be available by default in the bin directory in the Eclipse installation directory.
The runAnt script then sets up the log files, environment variables and runs a second script “mdm
3. Step breakdown of the automated build and test system
Given that automated building and testing of MDM solutions is a worthwhile goal, the following sections provide some guidance in some of these areas where actions specific to the MDM tools and development/build environment are necessary, and some points of discussion are presented where choices exist.
3.1 Identify the pieces of the solution which represent the “source code” for the solution.
The source code for an MDM solution will be made up of a collection of Eclipse projects and their contents. MDM development, MDM configuration, MDM hybrid mapping, MDM service tailoring, MDM custom interface, MDM metadata and other MDM-specific projects types. CBA projects will add to the list.
MDM Development projects contain a “module.mdmxmi” file, which contains a model of the customizations which the project aims to create. This file should always be considered to be source code.
At some point the mdmxmi file will be used to generate Java, XML, SQL and other file artefacts, and there are a few different approaches you can take for these files:
The current solution is to only consider files which have been manually changed as “source code”, and “generate artefacts” from the mdmxmi model as part of the automated build process itself. This approach demands that the MDM workbench tools are installed as part of the build environment, because the “generate artefacts” process that turns .mdmxmi files into other artefacts will be a necessary part of the build process.
A project “MDM
3.2 Create a source code repository.
There are many choices regarding which product to use as a source code repository and covering them is not the aim of this document.
3.3 Recognize when a consistent set of code has been checked-in, at which point a “build” is started.
This event may be triggered manually, automated overnight, or whenever a change-set is delivered to the code stream. The capturing of this event is often specific to the code control system being used, though some solution teams augment this by adding a web page that enables build requests to be manually requested.
3.4 Create a build environment.
A build environment should include RAD (or RSA) which can be called in a “headless” manner such that functionality within RAD can be used without a user-interface being present.
MDM Workbench will be required in addition to RAD to perform a complete build of “module.mdmxmi” files.
For the list of platforms that MDM Workbench v11.0 and onwards support – refer to the product release documentation.
3.5. The build environment “boot-straps” itself.
A small script is responsible for “boot-strapping” the process by it checking-out the other build scripts which in turn build the artefacts from solution developers.
3.6 The build scripts check out the artefacts from code control to the local file system.
These actions are specific to the code control system so will not be discussed further here.
3.7. The source artefacts are processed, transforming them into built artefacts.
This phase of the automated system typically consists of a hierarchy of Ant files which decomposes the overall build process into many smaller steps and “Ant targets”. The Maven framework is a common choice of technology to oversee this phase.
These Ant files can be categorized into two types:
For a detailed walkthrough of specific implementations of the build process refer to the Ant scripts provided with this blog entry.
3.8. The build process often executes “unit tests” to further validate that the solution artefacts are healthy and do what they are expected to do.
The tools and approaches used to execute unit tests vary widely dependent on technology choice. Simple Java JUnit tests offer one simple solution, which can be invoked with scripts once the tests and tested code are built.
3.9 Built artefacts are published to a repository.
Every build against which build metadata can be gathered and reported is versioned by the publish process. Build logs, unit test results and results of other tests indicating the “health” of the build are gathered and published to the repository as well.
Products such as Rational Asset Manager can be used here, or for a really basic solution a simple shared folder on a network drive may suffice.
3.10 Automated deploy and test health of overall build.
If the build is considered “good” then further automation can be added to deploy the built solution to a test environment, with higher-level tests (functional and end-to-end system tests) exercising the solution further. Such tests can also report back to the build repository on the health of each build.
The automated deployment of entire systems for testing is often one of the most complex areas of the whole continuous development process. Products such as Rational Urban Code Deploy (UCD) can be used for this stage of the process, though for some environments a set of (reasonably complex) scripts might be sufficient.
For the MDM pieces, we are mostly concerned with deploying and un-deploying SQL scripts, depl
Prior to deploying extensions to the server, it is often necessary to modify the database. This is possible using the SQL scripts found in the MDMSharedResources project in the built workspace. Rollback scripts in the same location should be applied once testing is complete to reset the database back to a known good state.
For CBA deployment, Jython scripts can be used to manipulate the WebSphere server. Detailed documentation of these steps can be found in the WebSphere documentation.
MDM Application Toolkit for Product Domain
I recently had to build a product bundling process for a demo using BPM and the MDM Application Toolkit(MDMAT). Having built many business processes over the past 2 years using data from InfoSphere MDM I realized this was going to be the first one I that I was to build against the product domain of the physical engine. Using the MDMAT against the Party domain is pretty darn easy and very quickly a rich process can be built that interacts with MDM's library of web services for many different types of processes. How useful would it be for me when operating against the Product Domain, especially when a good chunk of my data was stored in Product domain XML soft specs? Well I'm pleased to say it was also very straight forward. I've written some notes below that will hopefully allow others to also find it just as easy to use the MDMAT against the product domain.
The process was to execute a search against the MDM product domain using some pre defined criteria that would allow me to pull back all products that met a certain criteria. in this case it was to retrieve a list of products that were within the 'Mobile Phone' category of the 'Channels' hierarchy, were aimed at a 'Market Segment' that was 'Affluent' had an 'Effective Date' before today's date and an 'Expiry Date' that was after todays date. This would allow me to show currently active offers on the mobile channel for Affluent customers. The 'Market Segment', 'Effective Date' and 'Expiry Date' attributes were all stored as attributes within an XML spec called 'Offer Attributes'. In the search results that come back from MDM I also needed to pull out some additional attributes that were stored within another XML spec called 'Channel Mobile Phone', these attributes were named 'Mob
Whenever I build a business process I first start by defining the variables that I will need. Since BPM applications are data driven, I find it helpful to define the data upfront and then worry about wiring them into a process at a later stage. Using the MDM Workbench I exported my MDM WSDL and imported it into Process Designer. This gives me access to my MDM Product business objects within BPM, allowing me to easily construct a ProductSearchBobj object with the criteria I need to execute my search and also create a Prod
With the objects defined I could move on to define my process flow. I created a very simple flow to suit the requirements as seen below:
I would first use the 'Configure Spec Search Criteria' node to execute a script to populate the ProductSearch object with the crieteria I needed. I would then configure the 'Retrieve all Offers' node to use the MDM Application Toolkits' Physical MDM Txn service to execute a search an return a list of Prod
With my objects defined and my process defined all I had to do was a little bit of scripting to firstly populate my search and then extract my search results to populate my displayObject. (I had already populated my MDMConnection object with my MDM server's credentials and configured the 'Retrieve all Offers' node to use the MDM Application Toolkit's Physical MDM TXn service to call an MDM 'sea
Populating the Search
I wrote a simple script in my 'Configure Spec Search Criteria' object to pass in the search criteria. I wont include the full script here, but all I had to do was create an instance of a ProductSearch object and set the following attributes:
When passed into the 'Retrieve all Offers' node my search criteria successfully results in a list of products that I am interested in being returned as a list of Prod
Extracting the spec values and populating the display object
Up until now everything I had done was pretty similar to other processes I had built, this final piece was the most challenging, in that I had never extracted values from an XML spec before within a business process. Looking at my Prod
With my spec values now populated inside my Prod
This ended up being a bit of a longer blog post then I intended (sorry JT), but hopefully it will provide you a good starter in using the MDMAT for the product domain. I really enjoyed building this process (and writing this article) as it showed me how cool the MDMAT is for helping me to build MDM centric business processes. The ability to build processes against MDM and not worry about the connection and any complexity in calling MDM Web Services saves a huge amount of time and with a little bit of script I was able to leverage the value of MDM's XML specs. if you want more information drop me an email. I'd love to hear what you are doing.

I mentioned in my developerWorks status at the middle of last year that I was working on a redbook on MDM and BPM integration. Well I am pleased to announce that this redbook has now finally been published!
The redbook titled : 'Aligning MDM and BPM for Master Data Governance, Stewardship and Enterprise processes' provides a detailed insight into the business benefits of running MDM and BPM projects side by side. It explains how combining the benefits of IBM InfoSphere MDM and IBM Business Process Manager to provide a platform for Master Data Governance and Stewardship, providing you with an industry lead
We'd love to hear what you think....
You may have seen the recent tech talks that the team here have been producing for our clients. In these tech talks an IBM expert will talk through a specific MDM topic in great detail sharing the deep expertise of the architects and developers that are living and breathing the technology. These tech talks are provided for free and just require a simple registration process to allow you to attend. All sessions are recorded and replays will be available shortly afterwards.
One area of keen interest to our clients has been concerning the Stewardship and Governance capabilities provided by MDM, specifically the IBM Stewardship Center, that was released in MDM 11.3. So it falls to me to host the next MDM tech talk on June 23rd. In this session I will be discussing the new capabilities offered by the IBM Stewardship Center, how we are changing the game for stewardship teams looking to evolve their organization to be more reactive to data quality events, engaging line of business users to provide input to data quality issues and adding advanced business rules and intelligence to automate events from across the entire data quality landscape.
A one hour tech talk is no where near enough time to do such a broad and important area justice however, we will spend some time up front explaining IBM's perspective on Information Governance and how IBM's InfoSphere portfolio provides the market leading integrated suite of comprehensive governance capabilities that can flex to suit your specific industry requirements. We will dive into the IBM Stewardship Center and its comprehensive workflow engine, providing collaboration and orchestration across the enterprise and touch on the MDM Application Toolkit, a suite of accelerators designed and built by some of our development ninja's to make creating custom governance workflows and quick and easy experience....and if we have time we may even have a live demo of the latest version of the Stewardship Center. During the session the live chat will be open allowing you to ask questions and I will have a team of experts ready to respond in real time.
If your organization is trying to address the growing focus on Information Governance, if you are trying to figure out how to make your Stewardship organization more efficient, or you just wanted to take a look at one of the coolest new features from the MDM team then don't miss the Mast
As of version 10.1, MDM is secured by default. This means that using the Web Service Explorer to test your web service will not be possible. Whilst there are many web service testing tools out there like SOAPUI, there is one that is included within the MDM Workbench that you can use, the Generic Service Client. The following steps detail how to invoke the required MDM web service :
This will then open the following editor :

InfoSphere Master Data Management operational server v11.x OSGi best practices and troubleshooting guide
Note: This preview only covers the initial set up of the MDM Workbench. The
The goal of this article is to show best practices and optimal development practices for developing with the InfoSphere MDM operational server. We will discuss common OSGi patterns, troubleshooting, including failures and resolution, as well as how to best deploy MDM composite bundle (CBA) extensions.
The InfoSphere MDM version v11 operational server is based on an enterprise OSGi architecture, which is modular in nature. The benefits of a modular architecture application design include reducing complexity, reducing time to delivery, and increasing serviceability. The Java EE infrastructure leveraged in previous versions of InfoSphere MDM had limited ability to enforce or encourage a modular design.
The advantage of a modular MDM application is to allow customization to be deployed without having to alter the core MDM application. Instead, customizations are attached in the form of extensions to the core MDM application. This is done using composite bundles, or CBA files.
Optimal workspace operational server configurations
The InfoSphere MDM Workbench is a tool that supports development of customizations and extensions to MDM operational server. The MDM Workbench allows you to define the desired data model and transactions and then generates the code required to implement the MDM Server extensions.
When using workbench to build and deploy your MDM customizations and extensions, there are a few workspace configurations to consider for achieving the best performance and development experience.

With MDM Workbench 9.0.x, you may find that web service deployment classes are not generated for data extensions. This causes runtime errors when invoking web services affected by data extensions, typically a class not found error referring to a class name with suffix _Ser, _Deser, or _Helper. Classes with these names should be generated when you run Prepare for Deployment on WSEJB projects. If these classes are not generated, the web service won't work.
To resolve this error, right-click on PartyWSEJB (you need to repeat this for each affected WSEJB project), select Properties. Select Project Facets. Check the facet: WebSphere EJB (Extended). Save changes, and run Prepare for Deployment on the WSEJB project.
I have added this information to the MDM Workbench FAQ. Thanks to Bark Bakker, for finding the workaround.
If you know of a good solution to a common problem, then please do add it to the MDM Workbench FAQ so that other users can benefit. And if you are having problems, please look at the MDM Workbench FAQ before posting to the MDM Workbench newsgroup, as you may find an answer there.
