Recent developerWorks articles: DataPower, Service Catalog and SOA Policy Patterns
DavidSeager 110000C5XS Visits (2002)
The development team have been busy writing articles for developerWorks about WebSphere Service Registry and Repository. A few of these have just appeared. Firstly (because I wrote it):
Creating a Service Catalog for services in WebSphere Service Registry and Repository
Learn how to create a Service Catalog view for services -- a read-only view is optimized for business users to search for and discover existing services for reuse.
Secure integration of WebSphere Service Registry and Repository with DataPower
Learn how to configure WebSphere Service Registry and Repository V8 and WebSphere DataPower V5 SOA Appliances for secure connectivity and integration.
Introducing the SOA Policy Pattern to create reusable policy patterns and to control your services
In general, a policy asserts a requirement, a capability, or another property of intended behavior. In a service-oriented architecture, you can use a policy to reduce risk and increase dynamic control as you author and maintain it separately from any business logic. This article introduces the "SOA Policy Pattern" in which policies are authored, managed, enforced, and monitored using the specific combination of WebSphere® Service Registry and Repository, WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliances, and IBM® Tivoli Composite Application Manager for SOA.
There should be a follow on to the DataPower article soon, which will show a more concrete example of WS-Mediation policy integration between WDP and WSRR, complete with sample web service.
