I am Shelly Gupta. Post Graduated from Banasthali Vidhyapeeth with an MCA degree. I started my career with Quark (product company) then I worked with Infosys for 14 months in the Retail department and then joined IBM in 2006. I now have a total of 7 years of IT industry experience building different enterprise products. Over the past 5 years, I have been deeply involved in building automation test suites and testing key pieces of WebSphere Message Broker. My passion is to help building world class quality product to retain leadership position for Message broker product and help IBM customers be successful. On the personal front, my family consists of my husband who works as a Development Director in a software MNC and a 5 year old daughter who studies in LKG. My husband has been a strong support and my daughter completely takes away all the stress of day to day life. Although we hail from north India, we are settled in Bangalore now.
What inspired you to be a developerWorks author?
We have a great product which is very powerful but during some of my client engagements I noticed that clients/professionals are not really aware of its strength. I thought of sharing my knowledge about the product and developerworks was an obvious choice looking at its popularity among technical professionals.
Any other improvements coming in Message broker related to web service?
In the latest release of message broker there is a new feature known as service interface wizard. User can create service interface from scratch, or based on existing WSDL. User can also implement the operations as subflows using the Service editor.
