WebSphere Service Registry and Repository V8.0 Fix Pack 2 has been released (188.8.131.52). Among the service fixes, there are new features added by the development team. Included is the subs
All features will be turned off when you install WSRR 184.108.40.206, and you must explicitly configure them on to see them.
Over time I will be posting articles describing each feature in more depth, and linking them back to here.
Subscriptions in Business Space
This feature allows a user to create an email subscription to certain items from the Business Space UI, for certain activities such as deletion, update or transition. Additionally the user can choose from a list of transitions to be told about. Finally the user can see all their subscriptions and edit them. This function was originally delivered in WSRR 7.5 fix pack 3.

The Object Copy feature allows you to copy a business model object from the context of a parent and the relationship to the object, pre-populate a create dialog with properties, classifications and outbound relationships from the object, then when you are done with the edits, save the copy and reattach the copy to the relationship it was copied on. Say you have a lot of custom classifications or properties you need to put onto every single endpoint you create in WSRR. This would allow you to easily add new SOAP Service Endpoint objects on the end of an SLD relationship “available endpoints”, or create new REST endpoints on a REST service, and keep all that custom metadata by copying an existing object.
See the WSRR infocenter for details of the feature.

WSDL and XSD documents could be updated before, but now the update will use the current dependent documents of the document being updated, to resolve dependencies. The update will re-use logical objects when their WSDL or XSD objects have not changed, subject to some rules documented in the WSRR infocenter. There is a new Replace Document wizard in the Business Space UI to allow easy updating of WSDL, XSD, XML and Binary documents.
This feature allows you to update WSDLs or XSDs in the development phase, when minor changes are required. You can also now update the URL of an endpoint in a WSDL and the associated GEP object (the SOAP Service Endpoint) will update itself.
See the WSRR infocenter for more details of the feature.
More details coming soon.
Web Service Mediation Policy 1.7 & DataPower 6 REST support
DataPower 6 and WSRR V8 fix pack 2 add new capabilities for dynamic look up and policy enforcement. Now DataPower 6 can dynamically look up endpoints for REST based services that are registered in WSRR. You can register your REST services in WSRR using the WSRR REST model, and you can subscribe your DataPower appliance (virtual or real) to keep up to date with changes to the endpoints where these REST services are deployed. You can already enforce mediation policies in DataPower on WSDL based services, but now you can also enforce these same policies on REST services.
What of the new policy capabilities? In version 1.6 of the Web Service Mediation Policy (WS-
See the WSRR infocenter for details of the WS-MediationPolicy 1.7 support.
See a series of articles describing how to set up the integration, with a test client, and show policy enforcement. The first part is titled "Usi
