Description

Connectivity is critical in establishing an enterprise-wide layer of data and extracting information from disparate sources within information systems.

A key differentiator for WebSphere Business Integration (WBI) Adapters is that the adapters are stand-alone solutions that may be used with WebSphere InterChange Server or IBM WebSphere MQ Integrator® Broker (both of which are components of WebSphere Business Integration Server) or with WebSphere MQ Integrator.

Because the adapters support all of these brokers, they offer additional system flexibility and change protection.

The open standards-based architecture of the adapters can also increase your business agility. Your customers benefit from greater interoperability by not being tied to a specific technology.

IBM WBI Adapters object discovery tools and event management include event queuing, event archiving, and event identification. They are also bidirectional and meta data driven.

The IBM WBI Adapter Framework supports each adapter solution. This foundation makes it easier and quicker to:

  • Install your adapters
  • Migrate different brokers seamlessly as your needs change

For adapter solutions not provided by IBM or IBM Business Partners, IBM offers the WebSphere Business Integration Development Kit.

In addition to exposing internal Web services, this adapter can also be used to communicate to externally hosted Web services.

This adapter is available on Windows NT, Windows 2000, Solaris, and AIX. Since the adapter exposes WebSphere InterChange Server collaborations, the adapter is compatible with that integration broker.

Enhanced technology adapters

IBM WebSphere Business Integration Adapter for JMS — Enhances event processing to allow different datahandlers per input queue

Greater support for updating and inquiring JMS header attributes is added for this release. JMS is an open-standard API for accessing enterprise-messaging systems. Allows business applications to synchronously and asynchronously send and receive business data and events. This adapter for JMS allows an integration broker to exchange business objects with applications that send or receive data in the form of JMS messages. It supports request processing and event notifications. In addition, swappable data handlers can be used to customize the message or business object conventions. This adapter is currently supported with the InterChange Server only.

The JMS adapter is available on Windows NT, Windows 2000, Solaris, and AIX.

IBM WebSphere Business Integration Adapter for SWIFT — As part of the solution for the Financial Services industry, the WBI Adapters for SWIFT provide connectivity to the SWIFT financial messaging network through the SWIFT Alliance Access. The adapter allows firms to migrate to the new ISO 15022 message standard without placing extensive new requirements on their existing ISO 7775 message infrastructure. The adapter includes prebuilt maps for commonly used messages. These maps can be extended and customized using an intuitive and user friendly toolset.

The WebSphere Business Integration Adapter for SWIFT utilizes the MQSeries host adapter, MQSA, which is provided on the SAA® gateway. This adapter is available on Windows NT, Windows 2000, Solaris, and AIX platforms.

IBM WebSphere Business Integration Adapter for FIX Protocol — Allows integration brokers to exchange business objects with applications that send or receive data in the form of Financial Information eXchange (FIX) messages. The connector allows integration broker flows to asynchronously exchange business objects with applications that issue or receive FIX messages when change or data occur.

The connector is meta data-driven. Message routing and format conversion are initiated by an event polling technique. The connector uses an MQ implementation of the Java Messaging Service (JMS), an API for accessing enterprise messaging systems.

The connector retrieves FIX messages from queues, calls the FIX data handler to convert messages to their corresponding business objects, and then delivers them to the broker. In the opposite direction, the connector receives business object requests from the broker, converts them into FIX messages using the same data handler, and then delivers the messages to an MQSeries queue.

This adapter supports FIX message sets V4, V4.1, V4.2 and V4.3. It is available on Windows NT, Windows 2000, Solaris, and AIX.

IBM WebSphere Business Integration Adapter for WebSphere MQ — In this release, IBM WBI Adapter for WebSphere MQ now supports WebSphere MQ V5.3. This release also enhances event processing to allow different data handlers per input queue.

IBM WBI Adapter for WebSphere MQ allows for Enterprise Application Integration with applications communicating via WebSphere MQ messages. The connector supports synchronous and asynchronous modes for request processing and event notification. In addition, to create, update, and delete, the adapter also supports retrieve, retrieve by content, and exist operations.

The WBI Adapters for WebSphere MQ can assign more than one message format to the same business object using any data handler, if the data handler can identify the business object from the message content alone. In addition, as an option, the connect supports synchronous posting of events as an integration broker for applications that want feedback on the request the issue through WebSphere MQ. This adapter is only required with the WebSphere InterChange Server.

IBM WBI Adapter for WebSphere MQ Adapter support connectivity to MQ series 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3. This adapter is available on Windows NT, Windows 2000, Solaris, and AIX.

IBM WebSphere Business Integration Adapter for WebSphere MQ Workflow — Supports WebSphere MQ Workflow V3.4. In addition, it now supports WebSphere MQ V5.3.

WebSphere MQ Workflow is a workflow engine that permits users to construct processes that include both manual and automated steps. At the specific points where manual tasks, information or action are required in a process, the WebSphere MQ Workflow adapter provides the capability to build pauses between the state steps, or stages of the processes where data is transformed by a transaction taking place in the underlying applications, or in the manual activities taking place outside the process. These pauses, or long-lived transactions, are critical features in the ability to automate business processes. WebSphere MQ Workflow adapter compliments the integration broker by merging sophisticated workflow capabilities with IBM's superior business process management features.

The Java-based WBI Adapter enables hybrid implementations of WebSphere MQ Workflow with an integration broker solution. The combination of products provides a best-of-breed integration strategy for companies seeking to automate processes that do not necessarily take place instantaneously, but rather require sustained pauses for reasons such as obtaining approvals, meeting regulatory requirements, or satisfying industry-standard procedures.

The WBI Adapter for WebSphere MQ Workflow functions in a couple of different ways. It initiates synchronous and asynchronous interaction between the integration broker flows and WebSphere MQ Workflow. If, for example, during an order process based on an IBM WebSphere Business Integration Collaboration, an approval must be obtained, then the Adapter prompts WebSphere MQ Workflow to pause and wait until a response has been returned from an underlying application, which could be an automated process or the result of a manual step. Correspondingly, WebSphere MQ Workflow prompts the connector to initiate collaboration processes. This adapter is only required with the IBM WebSphere InterChange Server.

The WebSphere MQ Workflow adapter is available on Windows NT, Windows 2000, Solaris, and AIX.

IBM WebSphere Business Integration Adapter for WebSphere MQ Integrator Broker — Now supports WebSphere MQ V5.3.

The WebSphere Business Integration Adapter for WebSphere MQ Integrator enables integration with IBM's WebSphere MQ Integrator Broker and, for the first time, WebSphere Event Broker. Consult system documentation for adapter setup nuances between the two products.

Integration broker requests can now initiate IBM WMQI message flows as well as handle synchronous requests issued mid-flow to broker. The adapter uses the WebSphere Business Integration Data Handler for XML to facilitate XML integration with IBM WMQI. Business Object specifications can be created at development time using the XML ODA against WMQI parser-generated DTDs. This adapter is only supported with required with the WebSphere InterChange Server.

The WebSphere MQ Integrator Broker adapter is available on Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Solaris.

IBM WBI Adapter for JTEXT — Minor enhancements. Consult the release notes for detailed information.

The WBI Adapter for JText enables integration brokers to communicate with an application through the exchange of text files. The connector is used when an application does not have a C, C++, or Java standard API through which the broker can communicate, and when it is not feasible to have an event table for a custom-built application. In these cases, the simple method for integrating an application into a larger system is by exchanging text files through the JText connector.

In addition to support of local text files, the WebSphere Business Integration Adapter for JText supports integration with remote text files accessible using the FTP protocol. This capability provides greater integration durability in that file sources can be moved across the network with minimal changes to integration parameters.

The JText adapter is available on Windows NT, Windows 2000, Solaris, and AIX.

Product positioning

As part of the WebSphere Business Integration family, the WebSphere Business Integration Adapters further extend the breadth of IBM's e-business infrastructure software portfolio.

WebSphere Business Integration Adapters can make your business more flexible with both the messaging and processing brokers that underpin WebSphere Business Integration; with WebSphere MQ Integrator or WebSphere MQ Integrator Broker, or with WebSphere (formerly CrossWorlds®) InterChange Server as the hub for your business integration efforts. In addition to supporting multiple brokers, adapters are stand-alone solutions that can protect customer technology investments in applications and systems.

Connectivity is critical in establishing an integrated, enterprise-wide system from which companies can extract information from disparate sources. The WebSphere Business Integration Adapters allow companies to address this need for total connectivity with one coherent approach. All WebSphere Business Integration Adapters run on the same foundation, the WebSphere Business Integration Framework. The framework allows greater speed and ease of adapter deployment, requiring less skill to install a broad range of adapters.

With this introduction of new adapters, IBM has increased its adapter portfolio to include more than 40 WebSphere Business Integration Adapters for industry-specific and cross-industry connectivity. In addition to IBM's current adapter portfolio, the WebSphere Business Integration Adapter Development Kit may be used in a services engagement to build new adapters for unique customer needs. These custom adapters are built to run on the framework mentioned above.
