I wrote this month's Comment Lines (but you may want to read it anyway): "Where can I learn about WebSphere?" These resources should already be well known by frequent readers of this blog, but now it's all gathered in one place.
And, of course, there's other good stuff:
- Greg Flurry is this month's Meet the Experts. Greg answers questions about SOA, including an extensive list of resources on SOA and ESB.
- My ISSW co-workers Kyle Brown, Keys Botzum, and Bill Hines have a cool article on WebSphere XD, "Exploring new network topologies made possible by WebSphere XD and the On Demand Router." The article focuses on the On Demand Router and gives a nice comparison between WAS ND and WXD.
- "Automate peer recovery for transactions and messages in WebSphere Application Server: Dramatic enhancements for high availability" talks about the improved failover capabilities in WAS 6, a favorite topic of mine.
- Another ISSW collegue, Roland Barcia, has an article "What is Gluecode? And why?," which helps explain the whole Gluecode thing.
- ISSW collegues Rachel Reinitz and Andre Tost continue their ESB w/WAS 6 series, part of the whole ESB and SIB things.
- "System management for WebSphere Application Server V6: New AdminTask commands make wsadmin scripting less complex and more practical" continues the series on what's new in wsadmin.
Allow me a moment to pat myself on the back: If I may say so myself (and I guess I am), I'm kinda impressed that the topics that are coming up in these articles are topics that I'm already discussing on this blog, often several months ago. Regular readers of this blog should already be pretty in tune with what's going on of interest and better prepared to digest the material in the Tech Journal. OK, I'm done now.
So, lots of good stuff to go read. Enjoy.
