Rational Application Developer enhancements for WebSphere Optimized Local Adapters present new opportunities for end to end EIS integration
Enhancements to IBM Rational Application Developer for WebSphere Software V9.0.1 added new capabilities for application integration between disparate enterprise environments, such as those made up of IBM WebSphere Application Server, CICS, IMS, and batch processing on z/OS, and environments that contain SAP, Oracle, Seibel, and other IBM WebSphere Adapter-supported enterprise information systems. Support for optimized local adapters is now included in Rational Application Developer, offering optimized bi-directional calling between WebSphere Application Server for z/OS and external address space applications on the same z/OS system. Combining optimized local adapters with the WebSphere Adapters support presents many new opportunities for real time interactions between applications and environments that were too complex to realistically handle in the past. This article presents one such scenario, in which a CICS application uses optimized local adapters and WebSphere Application Server for z/OS to communicate with applications running on SAP servers.

An introduction to service mapping: Integrating evolving web services in WebSphere Application Server V8.5.5
SOAs and web services evolve over time — new versions of services are deployed or brand new services must be integrated with existing clients. Typically, development effort must be expended to ensure that web service clients continue to work with the web service providers. IBM WebSphere Application Server V8.5.5 and IBM Rational Application Developer V9.0 introduce service mapping, a feature that enables you to remove the dependence of the service client on both the location and interface of the service provider via the interception, routing, and transformation of requests and responses between service clients and service providers. This article explains the concepts of service mapping and provides a working example, showing how multiple versions of a service provider can be called by the original service client via the development and use of service mapping technologies.

Improve the quality of unit testing by increasing code coverage
One of the challenges for many agile software development teams is to ensure that their unit tests cover most of the code. This is critical in ensuring that they create as few defects as possible and that the code can be refactored. Therefore, one of the key metrics (other than all tests passing) is the amount of code that has been covered. Starting in version 8.0.3 of Rational Application Developer, you can configure IBM Rational Application Developer and integrate it with IBM Rational Team Concert to run your tests and check code coverage before allowing the code to be delivered. This article walks you through how to set up this precondition, called the Code Coverage Advisor, and shows how you can use it to increase the coverage of code tested in your projects.

Converting COM request to web service request
Since its introduction, web service has become a standard mechanism for integration between applications. However, there are many applications written in languages that do not provide a strong support for web service - for example Visual C++ V6.0 or Visual Basic V6.0. One approach to enable these applications is to have an adaptor that can convert a request into a web service call. This tutorial describes how to develop this adaptor implemented as a DCOM server using C#. It basically receives a COM request and forward the request to a web service endpoint. It also provides steps on how to make a COM request in C++ and shows steps on how to implement a Java web service. In short, it demonstrates how web service interoperability on the .NET and JEE platform can be achieved. C# code is developed using Microsoft Visual Studio, while the web services is developed using Rational Application Developer V7.5 and deployed on the WebSphere Application Server V7.0 test environment.

Web service simulator framework solution using Spring
Large Web development initiatives generally comprise multiple development projects executed simultaneously by geographically distributed teams who work around the clock. Specific components developed by these teams are expected to interoperate as seamlessly as possible. One key requirement for such development is the definition of the contracts between the teams charted with building the different components. A good simulator framework provides the best possible team isolation and potentially accelerates productivity by supporting the full suite of requests and responses supported by each interface contract. This article describes using a simulator framework in fast-paced Web development environments, and shows, step by step, how to create one in short order using Rational Application Developer, along with examples and sample code.
