Intro to graph databases, Part 1: Graph databases and the CRUD operations
If you’re not familiar with graph databases, using one might sound a bit daunting. Anyone who has taken a course on graph theory can probably attest that the subject is a bit complex. But don’t let your graph theory experience (or lack thereof) keep you away from graph databases. In fact, when you use a fully-managed graph database-as-a-service, you get all of the benefits of graph databases without the complexity. This is part one of the two-part tutorial series Intro to Graph Databases.

Configuring IBM Sterling Secure Proxy with IBM B2B Advanced Communications for high availability
This article discusses how to configure IBM B2B Advanced Communications with IBM Sterling Secure Proxy and a load balancer for achieving high availability in case one of the SSP nodes fails. Prior knowledge of HTTP proxies and load balancers is helpful to better understand this article. The proxy that is used is IBM Sterling Secure Proxy, and the load balancer that is used is Apache. The setup involves two load balancers with a virtual IP address and two independent Sterling Secure Proxy installations. Also, B2B Advanced Communications is installed in a collective mode with both nodes capable of handling the incoming requests, processing them and responding properly back to the trading partner.

RESTful Web services: The basics
Representational State Transfer (REST) has gained widespread acceptance across the Web as a simpler alternative to SOAP- and Web Services Description Language (WSDL)-based Web services. Key evidence of this shift in interface design is the adoption of REST by mainstream Web 2.0 service providers -- including Yahoo, Google, and Facebook -- who have deprecated or passed on SOAP and WSDL-based interfaces in favor of an easier-to-use, resource-oriented model to expose their services. In this article, Alex Rodriguez introduces you to the basic principles of REST.

SOA Policy
Organizations use policy to guide decisions that are important to both the business and IT. Many times, policy is reactive, and created as a result of something negative happening. The SOA Policy Reference Architecture shows how the practitioner can be proactive with policy creation and maintenance, including the ability to manage and automate that policy. This paper and its more detailed attachment provides a framework for defining policy starting with business goals and objectives and then decomposing those into the business, architectural, and operational policies necessary to properly control the organization. An example of using the SOA Policy Reference Architecture to create the policy decomposition will be given to aid the reader in understanding the details.

OData
OData is a Web API for Data Access and manipulation. It is similar to a mini-ODBC or JDBC API but specifically intended for the Web. More precisely, OData allows clients to construct URIs that name an entity set, filter among the entities it contains, and traverse relationships to related entities and collections of entities. OData provides mechanisms for resources (also known as providers) to present descriptions of the data structures they expose and for clients (also known as consumers) to access and manipulate the exposed portions of the resources via the HTTP protocol. The OData Web API describes how requests from clients and results from the providers should be formatted. The OData specification documents have been submitted to OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards) in May 2012.

Linked Data standards
Linked Data and the Semantic Web have always been of interest to IBM Research but Linked Data has now become a central component of some of IBM's products strategy. The Rational group in IBM has for several years been employing a read/write usage of Linked Data as an architectural style for integrating a suite of applications, and we have shipped commercial products using this technology. The applications we have integrated in IBM are primarily in the domains of Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and Integration System Management (ISM), but we believe that using read/write Linked Data as an application integration technology could be broadly relevant and applicable within the IT industry.

USB-Like Universal Ports Type for Enterprise Service Bus, Part 3: Benefits of Universal Ports
In the first installment, part1 of this series, you learned about the basic functionalities of the currently available Enterprise Service Buses (ESBs). In part 1, you also learned about some of the difficulties in the use of the currently available ESBs. In the second installment, Part 2 of this series, you learned about the new concept of the Universal Ports type for ESB and how to implement Universal Ports. Universal Ports provide solution to the many of the problems that the current users of the ESBs experience. A Universal Port works analogous to the USB port of a computer, which is to connect devices of varied kind to connect to the computer. In a similar manner a Universal Port can be used to connect any application to the ESB and, indirectly, to the other applications. These applications may employ disparate forms of services to expose some or all of their functionality and still use a single port type. In this installment, part 3 of this series you will learn about the many benefits of Universal Ports.

Accessing HTTP and RESTful services from DB2: Introducing the REST user-defined functions for DB2
Increasingly, Representational State Transfer (REST) has become the preferred way of communicating in today's service-oriented architecture environments. There are many services and information sources that can be addressed via a URL and accessed using HTTP. On the other hand, there is still a significant amount of information stored in relational database management systems (RDBMS) -- like DB2. Modern RDMSes provide powerful processing features for relational data (through SQL) and XML data (through SQL/XML or XQuery).

A CBM-SOMA based approach to Resource and Capacity Management (RCM) Center Modernization
This article discusses the business operations and processes of Resource and Capacity Management (RCM) that helps to be transform IT systems. This methodology helps to modify and integrate the current assets and tools in realizing end-to-end automated business processes using an SOA. We looked at the enterprise view of the RCM center, build the business component models, identify the hot components and develop an SOA solution layered enterprise architectural model. The business services are identified and transformed into candidate IT services by applying SOMA service identification and analysis technique. This case study also provides example of IBM'S CBM-SOMA methodology, IBM SOA solution in modernizing existing RCM IT systems and its business operations.

Build RESTful web services using Spring 3
In the Java world, you can build a RESTful web service in several ways: Some folks use JSR 311(JAX-RS) and its reference implementation Jersey, others use the Restlet framework, and some might even implement from scratch. Spring, the well-known framework for building Java EE applications, now supports REST in its MVC layer. This article introduces the "Spring way" to build RESTful web services. Learn how to use Spring APIs and annotations to build RESTful web services, and see how Spring integrates this new feature seamlessly into its original framework.

Use Apache Wink with the Jackson JSON processor
Apache Wink is fast becoming one of the de facto implementations of the JAX-RS 1.0 specification. The providers included with the standard Apache Wink distribution for JSON marshalling and unmarshalling, such as JSON.org and Jettison, have some problems with array representation and limited return types. Coding JAX-RS services and their client Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (Ajax) applications can be difficult. In this article, learn a method for configuring an existing Apache Wink-enabled Web application to use the Jackson JSON provider to solve some of the problems.
