It's been awhile (since June/July (PDF), actually), but the August edition of the IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal is now online.
In The EJB Advocate, Geoff Hambrick documents a discussion he had with some really smart young fellow about where to implement the code for producing DTOs. Scott Johnson talks about how to be a happy programmer. Roland Barcia is this month's Meet the Experts on developing apps on RAD 6.
Scott Simmons introduces the WebSphere Integration Reference Architecture, which among other things shows how an ESB fits into your apps. Several of my fellow ISSWers have an article on advanced authentication in WAS (they're in favor of it!). Rachel and Andre continue their building an ESB series, and there's an article on custom portal code performance.
And there's an article on doing pub/sub in the SIB that I'll talk about next.
