Working with Service Component Architecture (SCA) (deprecated)
Start here to find out how you can use SCA to allow interoperability with IBM® Business Process Manager Advanced Version 7.5 or WebSphere® Process Server Version 7.0.
SCA is a specification that describes a model for building applications and systems using a service-oriented architecture (SOA).
IBM Integration Bus provides built-in message flow nodes that allow interoperability with WebSphere Process Server. These nodes support inbound and outbound scenarios with WebSphere Process Server. In an inbound scenario, a service component in WebSphere Process Server can send a request to IBM Integration Bus. In an outbound scenario, a message flow in IBM Integration Bus can send a synchronous or asynchronous request to WebSphere Process Server.
- From an SCA import or SCA export component that is defined in IBM Integration Designer Version 7.5 or WebSphere Integration Developer Version 7 and imported into IBM Integration Bus.
- From an IBM Integration Bus message set.
- Import an SCA import component from WebSphere Integration Developer and create a message flow that uses an SCAInput node, or
- Generate an inbound Integration Bus SCA definition and export the .insca file to WebSphere Integration Developer
- Import an SCA export component from WebSphere Integration Developer and configure a message flow using the Integration Bus SCA definition that is created, or
- Generate an outbound Integration Bus SCA definition and export the .outsca file to WebSphere Integration Developer
- IBM MQ Enterprise Transport
- WebSphere Integration node HTTP transport with SOAP
If an MQ binding is specified, IBM MQ is required to process the messages, so you must ensure that IBM MQ is installed on the same computer as your integration node. For more information about using IBM MQ with IBM Integration Bus, see Installing IBM MQ.
The SCA nodes do not support the SCA binding in WebSphere Integration Developer, which is used only for SCA invocations between modules running within WebSphere Process Server.
