Description

IBM WebSphere Message Broker Version 6.0 delivers significant new function for integrating virtually all applications while continuing to improve performance, ease of use, and flexibility for developers and administrators.

Flexible transformation

Transformations can be authored using tools that match both the user's skills and the data being transformed. The improved graphical mapping editor allows simple drag and drop transformations. Alternatively, developers who prefer to program can use Java™, ESQL, or XSLT as transformation languages.

  • Improved graphical mapping

    The improved graphical mapping editor makes transforming both simple and complex messages as easy as dragging and dropping.

    Maps can be developed iteratively either top-down (building the target format as part of map creation) or bottom-up (building the source as part of map creation) map development scenarios in addition to the existing support for meet-in-the-middle map development. Drag and drop gestures predict the desired result of the transformation. Novice users are guided through mapping by "predictions" that generate an initial mapping using drag and drop techniques. New features include the ability to split source messages into a number of output messages, message header mapping, and easy mapping of repeating elements.

  • Routing and transformation rules in Java

    A new Java compute node allows routing and transformation logic to be written in Java using existing programming skills. A standard J2SE 1.4.2 environment is provided with the standard Eclipse Java editor with color highlighting and code assist. No ESQL skill or experience is required.

    The Java jar files can be deployed to the broker runtime using the standard broker deployment facilities.

  • ESQL enhancements

    ESQL has been extended to make transforming and routing messages using ESQL even easier. Improvements include:

    1. In-memory cache to avoid access to databases for read only routing or validation data
    2. Improved support for creating DATETIME variables
    3. Access to multiple databases from the same compute node
    4. Dynamic database schemas
    5. New user-defined properties that can pass parameters to ESQL to modify standard behavior
    6. Access to environment information such as flow name and broker name, and so forth
    7. Improved support for result sets returned by database stored procedures
    8. Improved error recovery by the use of SQL handlers
    9. Multiple out terminals to combine the function of compute and filter nodes

  • XSLT enhancements

    Performance of XSLT transformations is improved by the support of compiled style sheets. The style sheets can also be deployed using the standard deployment facilities.

Improved performance and scalability

Performance of the broker runtime has been significantly improved by reducing the pathlength of the major broker functions. The cost of parsing and streaming messages has been reduced. ESQL and publish/subscribe functions have been optimized. The aggregation nodes are re-implemented to use queues to save state rather than a database to significantly improve throughput, particularly of non-persistent requests.

A new in-memory cache, mentioned above, allows more efficient flow to be developed. The Message Repository Manager (MRM) and XML parsers have reduced their storage requirements to allow larger messages to be dealt with.

The tools performance and scalability are improved. The tools take advantage of Eclipse 3.0 multi-threaded builders to quickly return control to the user. A performance analysis team optimized the complete tooling path, resulting in significant time savings for tools users.

Simplified installation and migration

Installation of the product has been simplified by reducing the prerequisite products required. The configuration manager no longer requires a database and other broker requirements have been reduced.

A default configuration wizard is provided to quickly build a full environment for development or other simple configurations on Windows™ and Linux™.

Migration from previous releases (branded WebSphere MQ Integrator® and WebSphere Business Integration Message Broker) is supported; utilities are provided to make version-to-version migration a simple operation.

Installation and configuration of the product on z/OS® has been simplified.

Enhanced support for Web services

Web services support is extended by support for more standards such as SOAP 1.2 and HTTP 1.1 in addition to verification that Web services comply with the Web Services Interoperability (WS-I) Basic Profile.

Modelling and transformation of SOAP messages is simplified and the ability to import WSDL definitions is provided to allow the generated WSDL to be more easily used in client development tools.

The HTTP transport has been extended to provide HTTPS support.

Improved development toolkit

The development toolkit is based on the latest release of Rational® Application Developer and Eclipse. New XML editors are provided.

Visual debugging of flows, ESQL, Java, and graphical mappings is simplified by reducing Eclipse perspective switching.

New ways of driving flows

Message flows can now be driven by JMS transports in addition to WebSphere MQ. Supported JMS providers include the embedded JMS provider in WebSphere Application Server V6.0. Other JMS V1.1 providers are supported.

A new timer node allows message flows to be driven periodically rather than by an external event.

A new MQGET node allows messages to be retrieved in the middle of a flow in addition to the beginning and end of the flow. This new function allows groups of messages to be dealt with together or queues to be used to save temporary state information.

These new input and output methods are in addition to the WebSphere Message Broker File Extender and the VSAM and CICS® nodes SupportPac™ offerings.

Enhanced message parsing

The performance of parsing and streaming has been significantly improved to allow greater throughput, especially of large messages.

Pre-built message definitions are supplied for some common industry message formats such as SOAP envelope, SAP IDoc header, and MIME header.

A new WSDL importer is provided to simplify the calling of Web services from within flows.

A new MIME parser is provided to allow the parsing of SOAP with Attachment, RosettaNet, and TLOG messages.

Improved management

  • Run-time versioning

    The enhanced versioning capabilities introduced to the development environment in the last release have been extended to the runtime environment. All resources deployed can be tagged to version, author, and other useful information in addition to the standard complied time and deployment time attributes. The new information is displayed in the administration interface making it easy to see which resources have been deployed to production systems.

  • More automation

    New and extended command line utilities are provided to allow full automation of deployment of new resources to production environments.

    A new systems management application interface is provided to allow the product to be fully managed by other products and utilities besides the administration interface.

Improved security

The HTTP transport has been extended to support HTTPS to allow added privacy and security. Communication between the toolkit and configuration manager has been extended to allow the use of SSL for added security.

Extended platform support

The Configuration Manager is supported on all the broker platforms including z/OS, UNIX®, Linux, and Microsoft™ Windows.

The development toolkit can be installed on Linux in addition to Windows.

Database support on Linux for Intel™ is extended to include Oracle in addition to DB2 Universal Database®.

The IBM market-leading application integration software including WebSphere MQ and WebSphere Message Broker helps companies:

  • Quickly and economically address business integration issues
  • Become more agile and take rapid advantage of new business opportunities
  • Stay flexible
  • Maintain customer orientation
  • Gain competitive position advantage

WebSphere Message Broker allows companies to maximize flexibility as an integrated, On Demand Business by:

  • Leveraging existing resources much more widely than was part of their original design
  • Improving speed of implementation of changes to applications to respond to new opportunities, ensuring that application design and changes are focused on business logic rather than infrastructure details
  • Anticipating and rapidly implementing IT changes as their business changes

Service-oriented architecture and an enterprise service bus

In a service-oriented architecture (SOA), a connectivity layer often referred to as an enterprise service bus (ESB) optimizes information distribution between service requesters and service providers. Each enterprise can deploy its own unique ESB, reflecting how far it has advanced toward becoming an On Demand Business.

As key members of the IBM WebSphere software portfolio, WebSphere MQ and WebSphere Message Broker enable you to begin deploying or widening the deployment of your ESB today.

Some businesses may find that simple messaging-based connectivity between well-matched applications provides the aspects of integration that they require to implement an effective enterprise service bus. Other businesses may find that to extend these capabilities into their wider deployed infrastructure, they realize value of other parts of the WebSphere software portfolio. As key members of the IBM WebSphere software portfolio, WebSphere MQ and WebSphere Message Broker enable you to begin deploying your ESB today.

These programs help maximize the value of your IT investment by broadening the range of environments this connectivity layer can reach, such as hardware and operating system platforms and non-standards-based programming models as well as J2EE and .NET.

For connecting these diverse programming models there needs to be proven delivery of messages and data between the applications. The proven delivery mechanisms of WebSphere MQ and WebSphere Application Server can extend the standards-based enterprise service bus with reliable connectivity throughout the enterprise. WebSphere Application Server messaging resources provide a best-of-breed Java Message Service (JMS) implementation for use with J2EE-hosted applications. WebSphere MQ seamlessly extends those messaging resources to non-J2EE environments to integrate virtually anything, across more than 80 platforms.

WebSphere Message Broker adds services such as message routing, transformation enrichment, and support for a range of message distribution options and protocols to improve their flexibility and performance. This enables businesses to integrate virtually any applications on any systems, exchanging their data together in real time.

WebSphere software provides integration capabilities that enable you to begin reaping the benefits of service-oriented architectures with connectivity and integration through an enterprise service bus today.

IBM can help you to grow project-by-project toward an On Demand Business. WebSphere MQ, WebSphere Application Server, and WebSphere Message Broker play a pivotal role in creating service-oriented architectures and will continue to do so as IBM delivers enhanced capabilities to accelerate the deployment of an integration infrastructure that spans the entire IT ecosystem.

Statement of direction

In the Statement of Direction for the April 19, 2005, announcement of WebSphere MQ V6.0 (Software Announcement 205-094), IBM stated an intention to deliver WebSphere MQ V6.0 on additional platforms, including Linux on Itanium. The requirements of clients known to be interested in support for this configuration (Linux on Itanium) have subsequently changed and so there is no longer an intention to extend WebSphere MQ V6.0 to this configuration.

All statements regarding IBM's plans, directions, and intent are subject to change or withdrawal without notice.

Charge metrics definitions

Processor: In Full Capacity charging, PoEs must be acquired for all activated "processors" (available for use) that are on the server where the Program or a component of the Program is run.

  1. If there are Program Components included in the offering whose function is not to be included in the charge metric, these must be listed in the Program-unique Terms of the License Information.
  2. IBM defines a physical processor in a computer as a functional unit that interprets and executes instructions. A physical processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and logic units.
  3. Multi-core technology allows two or more processors (commonly called "cores") to be active on a single silicon chip. Unless otherwise announced, with multi-core technology, IBM considers each "core" to be a physical processor. For example, in a dual-core chip, there are two physical processors residing on the single silicon chip.
  4. In the zSeries Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) environment, each IFL engine is considered a single "physical processor."
  5. Threading, a technique which makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does not affect the count of physical processors.
  6. Where "blade" technology is employed, each "blade" is considered a separate server and charging is based upon the total number of processors on the blade on which the Program is run.

"Per processor" charging under Sub-capacity (when available): Required authorized use for eligible Programs is based upon the highest observed daily utilization of the partitions where the Program or a component of the Program, executes during a reporting period as measured by an IBM license management tool. IBM license management tool use is required for your submission of periodic reports to IBM. For each sub-capacity eligible software Program, the required authorized use is re-evaluated based upon the quarterly sub-capacity reports submitted to IBM.

  • The number of authorizations you must acquire is the smaller value of either of the following methods:
    • The total number of active (available for use) processors in the machine, or
    • The sum of (1) and (2) as follows (any remaining fraction of a processor must be rounded up to a full processor in the final aggregation)
      1. When a Program is run in partitions with dedicated processors, the sum of the Processing Units of those partitions, and
      2. When a Program is run in partitions that are members of a Shared Processing Pool, the smaller of:

        The number of processors assigned to the pool, or

        The sum of the Virtual Processors of each Uncapped Partition plus the Processing Units in each Capped Partition running a Program.

  • z/VM® Guest Charging
    • The total number of active (available for use) processors in the machine, or
    • The sum of (1) and (2) as follows (any remaining fraction of a processor must be rounded up to a full processor in the final aggregation)
      1. When a program is run in VM Guests with dedicated processors, the sum of the Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) engines of those VM Guests, and
      2. When a program is run in VM Guests that are members of a Shared Processing Pool (z/VM), the smaller of:

        The number of processors assigned to the z/VM pool, or

        The sum of the IFL engines in each z/VM pool running a Program.

Notes:

  1. IBM defines a physical processor in a computer as a functional unit that interprets and executes instructions. A physical processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and logic units.
  2. Multi-core technology allows two or more processors (commonly called "cores") to be active on a single silicon chip. With multi-core technology, IBM considers each "core" to be a physical processor. For example, in a dual-core chip, there are two physical processors residing on the single silicon chip.
  3. In the zSeries Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) environment, each IFL engine is considered a single "physical processor".
  4. Threading, a technique which makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does not affect the count of physical processors

"Per managed processor" charging under Full Capacity: Charges are based on the active processors on the machines in the computing environment affiliated with the Program rather than on the server where the program is run. The managed processors which require PoEs are defined in both the Charges section of the Announcement and the License Information's Program-unique terms.

Notes:

  1. IBM defines a physical processor in a computer as a functional unit that interprets and executes instructions. A physical processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and logic units.
  2. Multi-core technology allows two or more processors (commonly called "cores") to be active on a single silicon chip. With multi-core technology, IBM considers each "core" to be a physical processor. For example, in a dual-core chip, there are two physical processors residing on the single silicon chip.
  3. The Program may not run on some or all of the processors for which PoEs are required by the Program's valuation method.
  4. In the zSeries Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) environment, each IFL engine is considered a single "physical processor."
  5. Threading, a technique which makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does NOT affect the count of physical processors.
  6. Where "blade" technology is employed, each "blade" is considered a separate server and charging is based upon the total number of processors on the blades with which the Program is affiliated.

The warranty provided to the customer, for at least one year from acquisition, is access to databases (read Web sites) for program information and FAQs, including any known fixes to defects, which the customer can download or obtain otherwise and install at leisure.

Program technical support: Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of three years from the general availability date, as long as your 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 Maintenance also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. Customers 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, return it within 30 days from the invoice date, to the party (either IBM or its reseller) from whom you acquired it, for a refund.

  • For Programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the Program.
  • 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 the customer.

Volume orders (IVO): No

Passport Advantage applies: Yes and through the Passport Advantage Web site at

Usage restriction: Yes

Charging and license use management: Charges for authorized use of the Program are based on "Processor License Units" (PLUs). The use of the Program on any server machine requires one PLU to be acquired (from IBM or an IBM Business Partner) for each processor or symmetric multiprocessor contained in the server machine on which any copy of the Program is to run. PLUs are required for every server machine on which the Broker component of the Program is installed. You are also required to obtain a corresponding number of additional PLUs if the Program installation is moved to a server machine with a greater number of processors, or if any additional processors are added to the server machine on which the Program is installed.

Failure to comply with requirement for the appropriate number of PLUs will invalidate the terms of this license. License Use Management software is used to monitor compliance.

No separate server authorizations are required to license any other component part of the Program.

You should retain your original product and all Passport Advantage documents as Proof of Entitlement.

Specific restrictions also apply to various components of the Program, as described below.

Use of components on separate machines: The Program consists of several components:

  1. Message broker
  2. Configuration manager
  3. User Name Server
  4. Database manager
  5. Message Broker Toolkit

Each component may be installed on only a single machine, at any one time except for the Message Broker Toolkit, which may be installed on multiple machines provided they are all used in conjunction with the same message broker machine.

You may use the Program's Configuration Manager on the same server machine as the Broker component, or on one Intel-based1 machine.

1
Intel machines include compatible processors, such as Cyrix and AMD.

Unit testing: The Program license authorizes a single developer to install each component of the program on a single Microsoft Windows machine for purposes of "unit testing," which is limited to testing of code written or generated by such developer to confirm that such code functions as designed. Each license does not authorize the following purposes:

  1. Testing applications on servers separate from the developer's machine
  2. Exchanging messages with any production application or system
  3. Simulating production workloads
  4. Testing scalability of any code, application, or system

WebSphere MQ: The Program includes a copy of IBM WebSphere MQ V6.0. For each Proof of Entitlement, you are authorized to install and use WebSphere MQ V6.0 in association with your use of the Program, as follows:

  • You are authorized to use WebSphere MQ V6.0 only with messages generated for the Program, and not for other purposes. (To use WebSphere MQ V6.0 for any other purpose, you must acquire a separate [unrestricted] Proof of Entitlement which authorizes such use of an WebSphere MQ V6.0 software product.)

IBM Cloudscape: The Program includes an embedded version of IBM Cloudscape Version 10.0 (or components of IBM Cloudscape Version 10.0). Your use of IBM Cloudscape includes the right to copy, modify, prepare derivative works of, and embed IBM Cloudscape into applications you develop, and to redistribute IBM Cloudscape, as modified, as part of those applications, provided that you: (1) agree to defend, hold harmless, and indemnify IBM from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, expenses, and costs arising out of or in connection with your use or distribution of the Program, modifications thereof, or your application programs, and (2) distribute your applications under a license that states (i) that IBM (or any suppliers of code included in your application) assumes no responsibility and extends no warranties covering its (their) code, (ii) disclaims implied warranties and any indemnities for the IBM (or any suppliers') code, and (iii) extends to IBM (or any suppliers of code included in your application) the same cumulative limits of liability protections that you provide for yourself in your license. Each copy or partial copy of IBM Cloudscape, or any modifications thereof, must include a copyright notice as follows:

(C) Copyright (your company name) (year). Portions of this code are derived from an IBM Program. (C) Copyright IBM Corp. 1997-2004. All rights reserved.

DB2 UDB components: The Program includes portions of IBM DB2 Universal Database Version 8.2 ("DB2") and DB2 Run-Time Client Version 8.2. For each Proof of Entitlement of the Program, you are authorized to install and use a maximum of one copy of DB2 components only in association with your licensed use of the Program for the storage and management of data used and generated by the Program, and not for other data management purposes, specifically excluding use for application data. For example, this license does not include inbound connections to the database from other applications for queries or report generation. You are authorized to install and use one copy of these DB2 components on the server used by the Broker component of the Program.

You are authorized to install and use DB2 UDB components only with and on the same workstation as the Program.

Your use of the DB2 UDB components is subject to the terms and conditions of the license agreement which accompany the components except as limited in this license. The DB2 components may not be used for any other purpose. Contact your DB2 Reseller if your needs exceed this license agreement, to obtain a full DB2 UDB program.

IBM WebSphere MQ Everyplace: The Program includes a copy of IBM WebSphere MQ Everyplace Version 2.0.2. For each Proof of Entitlement, you are authorized to install and use WebSphere MQ Everyplace in association with your use of the Program, as follows:

  • You are authorized to install a maximum of one copy of WebSphere MQ Everyplace for use with the Program.
  • You are authorized to use WebSphere MQ Everyplace only with messages generated for the Program, and not for other purposes. (To use WebSphere MQ Everyplace for any other purpose, you must acquire a separate [unrestricted] Proof of Entitlement which authorizes such use of a WebSphere MQ Everyplace software product.)

IBM Message Brokers Toolkit: The Message Brokers Toolkit included with the Program includes a copy of IBM Rational Application Developer (RAD) and IBM WebSphere Eclipse Platform Components. You are authorized to use IBM Rational Application Developer and IBM WebSphere Eclipse Platform Components only with the Message Brokers Toolkit, and not for other purposes. (To use IBM Rational Application Developer and IBM WebSphere Eclipse Platform components for any other purpose, you must acquire a separate [unrestricted] Proof of Entitlement which authorizes such use of the IBM Rational Application Developer and IBM WebSphere Eclipse Platform software product.)

IBM Electronic Services

IBM Global Services has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to put you on the road to higher systems availability. IBM Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that provides you with an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support on the IBM eServer. You should benefit from greater system availability due to faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. IBM Electronic Services is comprised of two separate but complementary elements: IBM Electronic Services news page and IBM Electronic Service Agent™.

IBM Electronic Services news page provides you with a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used by customers 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 IBM Electronic Service Agent is no-additional charge software that resides on your IBM eServer system. It is designed to proactively monitor events and transmit system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, customer-defined timetable. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tracks system inventory, hardware error logs, and performance information. If the server is under a current IBM maintenance service agreement or within the IBM warranty period, the Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to provide proactive service that maintains higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent will be made available to IBM service support representatives when they are helping answer your questions or diagnosing problems.
