Description
Bottom rule

IBM Integration Bus V10.0 includes enhancements to can help improve developer experience, manageability, cloud, and functional capabilities.

Quickly get started with a radically simplified, single-package installation and improved support for unit test

The installation and configuration of Integration Bus is dramatically simplified. It allows an integration developer to quickly get started and use the IBM Integration Toolkit to start creating applications. On Microsoft™ Windows™ and Linux™ operating systems, there is a single-package, installation process that deploys both the runtime environment and the Integration Toolkit.

  • On Windows, you run the installer, accept the license, and optionally change the location for the installation.
  • On Linux, the installation is a simple unpack of the code into an appropriate directory.

A local integration node and integration server are automatically created the first time that you start the Integration Toolkit and these components are automatically started whenever the Toolkit is started.

The new Unit Test experience allows the integration server to be placed in a test data capture mode. This enables the ability to inject data in both serialized (physical) and parsed (logical) formats and visually trace the path taken by data as it propagates through a message flow.

Flexibly interact with WebSphere MQ using connection policies

Greater flexibility is delivered in the interactions between Integration Bus and WebSphere MQ. You can configure local or client connections. This enables your integration nodes to get messages from, or put messages to, queues on local or remote queue managers.

WebSphere MQ message flow nodes can be configured to communicate with a specific local or remote queue manager by using properties such as the queue manager name, host name, port, and channel. These properties can be abstracted from the node into a policy document, which can be edited dynamically in the web user interface and reused across multiple attachment points.

You can also create message flows that contain multiple MQInput and MQOutput nodes, each of which can access different queue managers. This allows you to adapt your message flows to match any existing WebSphere MQ topology.

Use Integration Bus without installing WebSphere MQ

WebSphere MQ is no longer a prerequisite for using Integration Bus. This means you can develop and deploy Integration Bus applications without installing WebSphere MQ.

When creating an integration node, you can still specify a relationship with a queue manager. This relationship is used by all message flow nodes that do not have queue manager connections explicitly defined or defined with a policy.

When you purchase a license for Integration Bus you are entitled to install and use one copy of WebSphere MQ on the same server on which the Integration Bus Runtime component is installed. This allows you to continue using the Integration Bus capabilities that require WebSphere MQ functionality, such as the event-driven processing capabilities like message aggregation and sequencing.

Note: No entitlement is provided for use of WebSphere MQ on a separate server. The copy of WebSphere MQ that you are entitled to when you purchase Integration Bus may be used only for messages generated or consumed by the components of the program or for internal Integration Bus operation, and not for any other purpose.

Simplify administration of Integration Bus by using the improved web browser user interface which includes new capabilities for deployment, creating, editing and attaching policy documents

The web-browser-based administration tool provides new capabilities for managing an Integration Bus environment:

  • Create, edit, and attach policy documents.
  • Manage (add, delete, or rename) a node's integration servers.
  • Modify a node's properties.
  • Deploy Broker Archive (BAR) files.
  • Delete individual applications, services, libraries and flows.
  • Add, edit, and delete configurable services.
  • Export the HTTP port configuration for a node.

Rapidly create REST APIs and use the new, graphical data mapper to support the transformation of unmodelled data structures

Integration Bus can be used to rapidly expose a REST API. Input data interpreted by using the built-in JSON parser can be quickly transformed by using the Graphical Data Mapper, even in cases where the data structure has not been modelled. Use the mapper's new support to add, reuse, rename, transform, and delete user-defined elements directly within your message map during the development phase.

With a single click, you can also generate a JavaScript™ client API by adding an HTTP/JSON binding to an existing integration service. The JavaScript client API provides operation functions that a JavaScript developer can call from a program that is running in a JavaScript environment.

Reuse common resources, such as message models, subflows, Java, and ESQL code in shared libraries

Shared libraries are introduced to share resources between multiple applications. A shared library is deployed directly to an integration server. Any application can reference the resources in that deployed shared library. If that shared library is updated, the changes are immediately visible to all referencing applications.

You might want to map between different versions of an XML schema. Both versions might declare the same elements and types, which cannot coexist in one application. If you create the two versions in separate shared libraries, then at deployment time separate models are built for each of the shared libraries. Therefore, no clash results from the duplicated elements and types.

In addition to these functional benefits, sharing common resources in a shared library can provide a significant reduction in memory usage, particularly in cases using large message models.

Libraries created in previous versions of Integration Bus are classified as static libraries. If you use a static library to contain resources, each application that references that static library is deployed with its own private copy of that library. If a static library is updated, each application that references it must be redeployed with the updated static library.

Integrate publish-subscribe-based applications by using MQ Telemetry Transport messages

MQ Telemetry Transport (MQTT) is a lightweight, publish-subscribe messaging protocol. You can now use Integration Bus to connect to applications and devices that send and receive messages using the MQTT messaging protocol.

You can create message flows to receive an MQTT message by using the MQTTSubscribe node to subscribe to one or more topics on an MQTT server. You can send an MQTT message by using the MQTTPublish node in your message flow to publish messages to a topic on an MQTT server.

Easily transform and model data structures with multiple new Graphical Data Map and DFDL features

Support is provided to dynamically define user-defined elements in your message map structured data for which you do not have the XML schema. User-defined elements are useful, for example, when graphically mapping JSON data and the Local Environment tree variables folder. You can also use them when using transport headers that include extension points, such as the MQRFH2, and a SOAP or XML messages that include an xsd:any structure. Graphical data maps can use the Environment tree variable input data to a transformation.

You can also now use the Graphical Data Map Specification Language to create a message map programmatically. If you choose to use a development approach that is based on JAXB, a bindings file is also provided.

DFDL continues to be enhanced for parsing and writing non-XML data structures. Sample DFDL commercial and scientific formats are provided via a GitHub repository. These models are provided with a public license for use on any DFDL implementation and include TLOG 4690, ISO8583 (1987), ISO8583 (1993), NACHA, and HL7v2. DFDL functional enhancements include support for unordered sequences, asserts on recoverable exceptions, improved refactoring support in the DFDL editor, DFDL Model Editor Copy-Paste support, and improved validation of DFDL schema.

Extend the reach of the Integration Bus with file, database, and security enhancements

Several functional improvements have been made to the core capabilities of Integration Bus when interacting with files and databases, including several security enhancements.

  • The FileRead node is enhanced to support the retrieval of remote files using SFTP.
  • There are new integrated security enhancements for the HTTP and SOAP nodes to use the transport-level security protocols NT LAN Manager (NTLM), Kerberos, and Simple and Protected Negotiation (SPNEGO). These protocols are collectively known as Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA).
  • Support is also added for the configuration of a Microsoft SQL Server database to be used as a data store for recording and replaying data. When the database has been configured, you can select a data capture store that is configured to use an SQL Server database and view the recorded data.

Create new application connectors and control them by using independently managed policies

The Connector Framework provides a simple development experience for quickly creating new connectors for the exchange of data with application endpoints.

  • When creating a user-defined node, new connector framework API methods are provided. This simplifies the development experience so that connectors can be written without earlier knowledge of how Integration Bus nodes work. This approach focuses on the interactional style of the endpoint application and not on Integration Bus.
  • The WebSphere MQ nodes and MQTT nodes are built on the new connector framework and can be easily administered at run time using policies. A policy defines a common approach to performing a particular action by providing a shared, managed set of properties. These configuration properties can be changed dynamically and managed independently from the multiple places where the policy is used. A policy can be attached to one or more nodes in a message flow to control their operational behavior at run time.
  • Connectors can be administered using policies. A policy defines a common approach to performing a particular action by providing a shared, managed set of properties. These configuration properties can be changed dynamically and managed independently from the multiple places where the policy is used. A policy can be attached to one or more nodes in a message flow to control their operational behavior at run time.

Import and convert existing WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus integration assets

Integration Bus represents the strategic IBM Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) offering and is the successor product for existing clients of both WebSphere Message Broker and WebSphere ESB.

Integration Bus provides tooling that facilitates the conversion of existing WebSphere ESB assets so they can run on Integration Bus. The tooling enables:

  • WebSphere ESB Project Interchange files to be imported and viewed
  • Common flow primitives to be converted automatically while maintaining the flow structure
  • An understanding of remaining manual tasks through a task list
  • Resulting flows to be modified and deployed

The conversion tooling is greatly enhanced beyond the extensible framework delivered in Integration Bus V9.0. It reduces the number of manual tasks required and now supports:

  • Conversion of mediation modules with multiple exports and with multiple mediation flow components.
  • Conversion of mediation flow components that implement multiple interfaces.
  • Conversion of mediation modules which contain Java components. Java components can call Imports with a synchronous binding or other Java components.
  • Conversion of mediation flow component subflows.
  • Encapsulation of converted mediation flow component logic using separate subflows for operation request, response, and error flows.
  • Encapsulation of converted exports, imports, and Java components within separate subflows.
  • Updated documentation to reflect the latest capabilities and conceptual approach.

Share product extensions with the integration community, including an enhanced explorer configured to access a GitHub repository of Integration Bus patterns

Patterns and samples are no longer included with the Integration Toolkit by default. Instead, the Pattern Explorer is configured to access a GitHub repository, from which you can select, download, and install just the resources you require. The Open Technologies for Integration GitHub repository also provides DFDL models, nodes, and connectors.

By default, the Integration Toolkit is now configured to use the online IBM Knowledge Center to provide context-sensitive help from the latest information that is available.

Deliver several modes of operation

Integration Bus offers several modes of operation to licensed clients. The mode of operation may be selected at any time, subject to the purchase of license entitlement. Existing clients may select any mode of operation at deployment time and are not required to reinstall their existing Integration Bus environment to change the mode in which a node is running.

  • Express® Edition provides an entry-level starting point to deploy an integration solution with the option to grow to full function and performance. It has restricted features and is limited to one process.
  • Standard Edition offers the choice of a full-feature mode of operation, which is limited to one process, or a restricted mode of operation without capacity restrictions. This intermediate edition offers the flexibility to fulfill either broad capability or high-performance scenarios.
  • Advanced Edition is the full-feature edition of Integration Bus with no function or capability restrictions imposed. It is the default mode of operation.
  • Remote Adapter Deployment Edition offers support for adapter-related features for users whose typical use of the integration nodes is integration with Enterprise Information Systems (EIS). The types of message flow nodes that you can use, and the number of integration servers that you can create, are limited.

WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus Transfer License

The Integration Bus WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus Transfer License provides comparable capabilities and performance to those available in WebSphere ESB. It offers a restricted mode of operation without capacity restrictions.

Integration Bus V10.0 5724-J05 Processor value unit

 
Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the PVU table by processor value, brand, type, and model number at the website below) and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores. The PVU table can be found at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html
Licensee can deploy the program using either full capacity licensing or virtualization capacity (sub-capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (refer to the web page below). If using full capacity licensing, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the program, except for those servers from which the program has been permanently removed. If using virtualization capacity licensing, licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at
http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_sp ecific_virtualization_technologies.html

* An activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

Notes

  • Some programs may require licenses for the program and what is being managed. In that case, the following applies. In addition to the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • Some programs may be licensed on a managed basis only. In that case, the following applies. Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • A few programs on an exception basis may be licensed on a referenced basis. In that case, the following applies. Rather than obtaining entitlements for the activated processor cores available to the program, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the environment made available to the referenced program as if the program itself were executing everywhere the referenced program was executing, independent of the basis on which the referenced program is licensed.

Top rule
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 product is only available via Passport Advantage.

Licensing

IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information document and Proof of Entitlement (PoE) govern your use of the program. 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.

Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance

This program is 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. This program has 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 number

L-ACRR-9G2EN9

The program's License Information will be 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.

Top rule
Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
