Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is a popular method for designing enterprise applications, because it provides benefits like reusable components and platform-independent communication. When considering an SOA, it's essential to factor in data integration. A great deal of legacy data is derived from daily transactions and must be maintained as part of new applications. If you can combine both SOA and data-integration technologies, you benefit through reusability, increased communication with other enterprise applications, and the use of Web services. This article explains how IBM® WebSphere® DataStage helps make this possible. DataStage, an IBM flagship product, provides a complete solution for real-time data integration (RTI) that can be handled as a Web service. You'll use DataStage to develop a sample RTI job, publish it as a Web service, and invoke the Web service with a Java™ client.
