WebSphere Service Registry and Repository

For full details of what is new in WebSphere Service Registry and Repository, refer to Software Announcement 211-084, dated April 5, 2011.

Store, access, and manage information to support a successful SOA. WebSphere Service Registry and Repository V7.5 delivers management and governance capabilities that allow you to get the most business value from your SOA with the ability to measure success. It facilitates storing, accessing, and managing service information, called service metadata, along with service consumer information to easily select, invoke, govern, reuse, and report your services. WebSphere Service Registry and Repository has tight integration with IBM SOA Foundation, an integrated, open standards-based set of software, best practices, and patterns for SOA.

Publish, find, enrich, manage, and govern

Encourage reuse. The publish and find capabilities of WebSphere Service Registry and Repository promote service reuse in SOA projects by allowing greater visibility of and easier access to existing services. The service discovery engine discovers services on WebSphere Application Server and other Application platforms, WebSphere Process Server, WebSphere ESB, and Microsoft.Net platforms, allowing you to keep an accurate record of deployed services in your SOA. (For a list of supported platforms, refer to the WebSphere Service Registry and Repository Information Center.) Faceted search provides a natural and user-friendly way to find services by allowing you to progressively refine search results using attributes, document types, and classification.

WebSphere Service Registry and Repository helps in quickly creating or modifying business processes using existing services. A powerful query mechanism allows you to search and find the services that best fit the requirements of a given process.

Enhance connectivity. The enrich capability enables dynamic and efficient access to services information by runtime applications and processes that facilitate better connectivity and efficiency. WebSphere Service Registry and Repository increases runtime flexibility of applications via an ESB by enabling selection of services based on service metadata.

Optimize service usage. The manage capability enables management of service metadata, service interactions, service dependencies, and service redundancies. You can classify services based on business objectives, manage policies for services usage, and monitor how services are changed and versioned. Also, you can link related documents (such as PDF files) to service metadata. This capability helps you optimize the use of services in an SOA by exchanging rich service metadata with runtime monitoring tools and operational data stores.

Enable SOA governance

Enables SOA governance in the service lifecycle by providing:

  • Access control

    Control the visibility and access to service metadata for sharing and reuse by using role-based access. Using the access-control editor, you can easily set up access-control rules that align with your business.

  • Classify service

    Classify services and related metadata into groups that are meaningful in the domain of your organization and that align with your business needs. Using the classification editor, productivity can be improved by easy setup and modifications to your classification schemas.

  • Impact analysis

    By maintaining relationships, WebSphere Service Registry and Repository has extensive support for analyzing the impact of service introduction, deletion, or alteration. Graphical views can be used to intuitively understand the service relationships and dependencies.

  • Service lifecycle

    By creating user-definable entities and customizing the service lifecycle, you can configure WebSphere Service Registry and Repository precisely according to your business needs. You can implement best practices for service lifecycle management with the ability to promote services and lifecycle validations. Using customizable validators, you can guard transitions in the life-cycle states of services.

  • Service Consumer lifecycle

    Governing the service consumers is just as important - if not more important - than governing the service itself. Consumers have versions just as services have versions. Governing the consumers provides you the means to measure your SOA's success. This becomes critical when managing a SOA. WebSphere Service Registry and Repository has a well-defined model for governing the service consumer in the Governance Enablement Profile. This profile can be customized to fit your business needs.

  • Governance profile

    To get you started easily and quickly, WebSphere Service Registry and Repository provides a well-defined service model that includes templates, associated life cycles, governance policies with a generic validator, a classification system, roles, and perspectives.

  • Reporting

    Reporting becomes key in managing and measuring a SOA. WebSphere Service Registry and Repository provides robust reporting capabilities built on top of Eclipse BIRT.

SOA policy management

WebSphere Service Registry and Repository enables policy management across the life cycle spanning all domains of policy. Better policy management with WebSphere Service Registry and Repository gives you the ability to track and govern your runtime policies while establishing contractual and enforceable relationships between various runtime policies and associated services. You can consistently enforce the most current policies in your SOA. These policies are discovered and interpreted dynamically during run time. By helping to ensure that your contractual obligations are strictly followed, you will benefit by mitigating the risk of lost revenue and customer dissatisfaction, and achieving higher levels of service quality and responsiveness.

  • Govern the lifecycle of SOA policies
    • Validate, audit, and report changes to policy
    • Ensure web services interoperability compliance
    • Enforce service governance policies
  • Use policy authoring tools to easily create new policies
    • Associate policies to services to create an authoritative source of services and related metadata
    • Store and associate policies of any domain
  • Apply prescriptive approach to governance with new policy libraries, improving time-to-value
    • Templates for operational policies
    • Policies that capture governance best practice
  • Distribute SOA policies to enable enforcement by ESBs and other SOA products

Federate with other SOA repositories. WebSphere Service Registry and Repository federates with other SOA repositories to enable governance and management of the complete service life cycle. At the model and assemble phases, WebSphere Service Registry and Repository is complemented by repositories that specialize in managing SOA development artifacts.

In the deploy and manage phases, WebSphere Service Registry and Repository can work with configuration management databases to acquire and manage operational details of your IT infrastructure. Integration with IBM Tivoli® Change and Configuration Management Database (CCMDB) provides governance and impact analysis capabilities across services and the underlying infrastructure.

Synchronization with Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI) registries. Allows entries created via a UDDI V3-capable product to be synchronized with entries in WebSphere Service Registry and Repository. The Web Services Description Language document entries (that are created in UDDI following Best Practice: "Using Web Services Description Language in a UDDI Registry" or Technical Note: "Using Web Services Description Language in a UDDI Registry, V2.0.2") can be mapped, created, and maintained including their metadata.

Policy documents stored in UDDI can also be mapped in WebSphere Service Registry and Repository. The support is bidirectional, meaning that documents created in WebSphere Service Registry and Repository can be mapped into UDDI and documents created in UDDI can be mapped into WebSphere Service Registry and Repository.

Enable governance and lifecycle management of high-value applications. WebSphere Service Registry and Repository helps your high-value applications to participate fully in enterprise SOA. Service-enabled applications from WebSphere MQ and CICS can be published in WebSphere Service Registry and Repository enabling you to reuse, classify, describe, and govern these services like any other in your SOA.

WebSphere Service Registry and Repository can be a critical deployment component of SOA projects because it enables you to

  • Get clear visibility into service associations and relationships. Better align IT to meet business needs by outlining business tasks and the corresponding IT services. WebSphere Service Registry and Repository supports service lifecycle management and governance to provide better control of SOA environment.
  • Share your services. You can identify common services to avoid duplication and foster reuse. WebSphere Service Registry and Repository supports discovery and reuse of services and the associated metadata and artifacts.
  • Deliver services interoperability. Make the most of existing investments and infrastructure. With the support of Web Services Description Language, XML, XML Schema Definition (XSD) Language, Service Component Architecture (SCA), and other standards including UDDI, WebSphere Service Registry and Repository delivers true interoperability.
  • Provide SOA governance. SOA governance is a catalyst for optimizing SOA deployments in meeting the IT business objectives. Your SOA can be more tightly aligned to business objectives because it is organized by business-oriented services and if needed, also by IT function. Better governance of an SOA means better business results.
  • Unlock the value of mainframe applications and databases. Mainframe applications and database interactions that are exposed as services can be published to WebSphere Service Registry and Repository and accessed by both the mainframe and non-mainframe applications without invasive programming at the API level.
  • Enforce best practices. WebSphere Service Registry and Repository includes functions and flexibility to help IT groups institute standards and best practices in their SOA deployments.
  • Incrementally adopt SOA. The scalable nature of WebSphere Service Registry and Repository enables you to start your SOA small and grow as needed. You can incrementally deploy SOA alongside existing assets and processes.

Play a vital role in IBM SOA Foundation

WebSphere Service Registry and Repository plays a major role in the SOA lifecycle.

  • Model. During service modelling, you can use WebSphere Service Registry and Repository to create or reuse service descriptions, classifications, and XML schemas. It also interacts with the service development lifecycle with standard asset management solutions.
  • Assemble. During service development or assembly, you can use WebSphere Service Registry and Repository to locate services for reuse and to enable service composition, such as creating new composite applications. Because the lifecycle of services is managed and governed in WebSphere Service Registry and Repository, it forms the authoritative source of service metadata.
  • Deploy. As part of the service deployment process, you can publish service endpoint information to WebSphere Service Registry and Repository. It augments any service descriptions that already exist from development or other tools, which helps by enriching the service interaction from run times.
  • Manage. To manage services that leverage system-management practices (such as Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL®) processes, and Change and Configuration Management Database (CCMDB) for storing information about service interactions such as mediations), you can use WebSphere Service Registry and Repository to capture and assess the performance of services against business and operational performance objectives. WebSphere Service Registry and Repository federates service information with operational system management utilities.

WebSphere Service Registry and Repository enables Service Governance needs of an enterprise. Its robust, industrial-strength capabilities help you efficiently manage access to, and governance of, services. Standard registry and repository functions for the entire software life cycle, well integrated with IBM SOA Foundation and other complementary third-party software solutions, make WebSphere Service Registry and Repository a valuable component of your SOA. Regardless of the level of SOA maturity in your enterprise, WebSphere Service Registry and Repository brings immediate benefits that can help accelerate your adoption of an SOA approach.

Terms and conditions
Bottom rule

The information provided in this announcement letter is for reference and convenience purposes only. The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IBM International Program License Agreement, IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

This offering is only available via Passport Advantage. It is not available as shrinkwrap.

Licensing

WebSphere ESB Registry Edition V7.0 is composed of two components:

  • WebSphere ESB V7.0 (program 5724-I82) and
  • WebSphere Service Registry and Repository V7.0 (program 5724-N72)

IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information documents and Proofs of Entitlement (PoE) govern your use of the two component programs specified above. PoEs are required for all authorized use. Part number products only, offered outside of Passport Advantage, where applicable, are license only and do not include Software Maintenance.

This software license includes Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance).

The two component programs specified above are licensed under the IBM Program License Agreement (IPLA) and the associated Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance, which provide for support with ongoing access to releases and versions of the program. IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available. These programs each have a one-time license charge for use of the program and an annual renewable charge for the enhanced support that includes telephone assistance (voice support for defects during normal business hours), as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect.

License Information form number

This offering comprises the two component programs specified above, for which the respective License Information document form numbers:

  • L-SBRY-8C7EWN (for program 5724-I82) and
  • L-SBRY-8D8HV5(for program 5724-N72)

The above-referenced components' License Information documents are available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement website

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
Limited warranty applies

Yes

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

Technical support of a program product version or release will be available for a minimum of five years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) also provides you with access to updates (modifications or fixes), releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that (1) for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program and (2) for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
