Overview

Most companies today face a growing problem. The past 40 years of IT evolution have left them with an enterprise-computing infrastructure that is heterogeneous, widely distributed, and complex. Business logic and application data typically are scattered throughout the organization across multiple software assets. Furthermore, companies can face constant pressure to create new applications that integrate business logic and application data within the organization and with suppliers, partners, and customers in order to cut costs, build customer loyalties, and gain a competitive advantage. However, this integration remains complex, expensive, and risky.

What can you do to address these challenges?

You can leverage the power of open standards and the flexibility of a service-oriented architecture by using WebSphere® Studio Application Developer (AD) Integration Edition V5.1 in conjunction with WebSphere Business Integration Server Foundation (WBISF) V5.1 to build and deploy composite applications that make it easy to reuse your existing infrastructure and that are designed to adapt to change.

In addition to a full Java™ 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) development environment, WebSphere Studio AD Integration Edition V5.1 provides easy-to-use tools for creating reusable services out of a variety of back-end systems and for choreographing the interactions between those services using Business Process Execution Language for Web Services (BPEL).

New in WebSphere Studio AD Integration Edition V5.1

  • Business process designer for creating BPEL 1.1 process flows
  • Integrated BPEL debugger
  • Enhanced performance for install and debug function including support for J9 hot swap
  • New visual condition builder to direct the execution of BPEL processes
  • Automated migration of process flows created with WebSphere Studio AD Integration Edition V5.0 to BPEL
  • Unit test environment for WebSphere Business Integration Server Foundation V5.1
  • Full support for all the features included in WebSphere Studio AD V5.1.1 including support for Workbench V2.1.2, support for building Web Services Interoperability (WS-I) compliant Web services, and support for Java development kit (JDK) 1.4.1

Description

WebSphere Studio AD Integration Edition V5.1, optimized for developing applications that deploy to WBISF V5.1, delivers an application development environment for building service-oriented applications that extend and integrate your existing IT assets.

As a result of rebranding, a product name has changed. WBISF V5.1 is the follow-on product to WebSphere Application Server Enterprise V5.0.

Together, WebSphere Studio AD Integration Edition V5.1 and WBISF V5.1 provide:

BPEL support

BPEL defines a model and a grammar for describing the behavior of a business process based on interactions between the process and its partners. Support for BPEL includes:

  • Application assembly, deployment, and runtime support for BPEL-based business processes
  • Intuitive drag-and-drop tools to visually define the sequence and flow of BPEL business processes
  • A visual business process debugger to step through and debug BPEL business processes
  • Compensation support to provide transaction "rollback"-like support for loosely coupled business processes that cannot be undone automatically by the application server
  • A standards-based (XML Path Language (XPATH) / Extensible Stylesheet Transformation (XSLT)) transformation wizard to map data between nodes in a process
  • Integrated fault handling to provide an easy and integrated means of performing in-flow exception handling
  • Support for including Java snippets and artifacts as part of a business process

Human workflow support

Human workflow support expands the reach of BPEL to include activities requiring human interaction as steps in an automated business process. Business processes involving human interaction are interruptible and persistent (a person may take a long time to complete the task) and resume when the person completes the task. Human workflow support includes:

  • Staff activity nodes to represent a step in a business process that is performed manually
  • Ability to assign people (for example, direct reports) to specific instances of a process via staff queries that are resolved at runtime using an existing enterprise directory
  • Graphical browser-based interface for querying, claiming, working with, completing, and transferring work items to another user
  • Advanced work item management support for managing the creation, transfer, and deletion of work items
  • Dynamic setting of duration and calendar attributes for staff activities
  • Dynamic setting of staff assignment via custom attributes

Back-end system connectivity

WebSphere Studio AD Integration Edition V5.1 provides integrated, open standards-based support for building Web applications and BPEL business processes that integrate with back-end systems including:

  • Integrated tool support for using J2EE Connector Architecture (JCA) 1.0 resource adapters to access back-end systems
  • Enhanced tool integration for JCA adapters with tool plug-in extensions (available from IBM and IBM Business Partners)
  • Support for the entire suite of WebSphere Business Integration Adapters
  • Easy-to-use tools for creating services out of JCA resource adapters and including those services as part of a BPEL business process
  • Enhanced JCA 1.0 resource adapters included for CICS®, IBM Host On-Demand, and IBM Information Management System (IMS™)
  • Sophisticated wizards to manage the low-level data handling requirements for JCA resource adapters
  • Wizards to quickly and simply expose CICS or IMS programs as enterprise services including the ability to import definitions from COBOL, C structures, CICS basic mapping support (BMS), and IMS Message Format Service (MFS) definitions

Business rule beans

Business rule beans offer a powerful real-time framework for defining, executing, and managing business rules that encapsulate business policies that vary based on changes in the business environment. For example, a simple business rule might be, "If a customer's shopping cart is greater than $X, then offer a Y% discount." Business rule support includes:

  • Deliver easy-to-use tools for defining, executing, and managing business rules
  • Cheat sheet for defining business rules
  • Update business rules at runtime using a straightforward user interface without the need to bring the application or server down
  • Organize business rules into logical categories using the business rules beans framework
  • Define a start and end date for when the rule is in effect
  • Use business rules with BPEL4WS processes to automate decisions and increase process flexibility

Programming model extensions

WBISF V5.1 and WebSphere Studio AD Integration Edition V5.1 help accelerate large-scale application development by allowing the user leverage the latest innovations that build on today's J2EE standards including extended messaging, dynamic query service, internationalization service, application profiling, asynchronous beans, object pools, startup beans, scheduler service, work area service, activity session service, and last participant support. New programming model extensions include:

  • Distributed Map offers an interface to enable J2EE applications and system components to cache and share Java objects by storing a reference to the object in the cache in order to improve performance.
  • Container Managed Persistence over Anything extends the existing J2EE Container Managed Persistence (CMP) framework to support any backend system or service that supports create, retrieve, update, and delete (CRUD) methods.

Best-in-class development environment

WebSphere Studio AD Integration Edition V5.1 builds on the WebSphere Studio Application Developer V5.1.1 to provide a best-in-class integrated development environment for building, testing, integrating, and deploying J2EE applications, Web services, and business processes.

Feature and interface improvement replacements

In keeping with the IBM commitment to open standards, the IBM Common Connection Framework (CCF) is replaced with JCA in WBISF V5.1. CCF functions will be delivered in this release for migration purposes. IBM recommends that you put migration plans in place to remove application dependencies, and build all new applications on the new, replacement interfaces.

IBM will continue to support these replaced interfaces until end of service of this release. Afterwards, support will be withdrawn. CCF broke new ground upon release and has significantly influenced the evolution of the now industry-standard JCA. IBM is committed to open standards. Our strategy is to help customers move toward industry standards as they provide the necessary function. IBM recommends that you put plans in place to complete migration of CCF applications to JCA within the next three years.

Support of business processes created with WebSphere Studio AD Integration Edition V5.0 is being deprecated in WBISF V5.1. Business processes created with WebSphere Studio AD Integration Edition V5.0 need to be migrated to a process based on BPEL using the Migrate option provided with WebSphere Studio AD Integration Edition 5.1.

Several Process Choreographer API Interfaces and methods used for business processes created with WebSphere Studio AD Integration Edition V5.0 or earlier are deprecated. A detailed list can be found in the Java Documentation provided with Process Choreographer. The recommended migration action for the deprecated APIs is available on a detailed level in the JavaDoc for the appropriate API.

Additional information on feature and interface replacements can be found in the WebSphere Business Integration Information Center:

Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act

WebSphere Studio AD Integration Edition is capable, as of May 28, 2004, when used in accordance with IBM's associated documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it.
