Description

WebSphere Integration Developer V6.0.1 and WebSphere Process Server V6.0.1 deliver a composite application platform optimized for building service-oriented applications that extend and integrate a company's existing IT assets.

WebSphere Process Server is the cornerstone of IBM's business process automation and integration solution. It represents years of experience that has been gathered with IBM's existing products and evolves the features of these products, while at the same time adding new ground-breaking capabilities.

WebSphere Process Server is the first to offer robust process automation, advanced human workflow, business rules, application to application (A2A), and B2B capabilities — all on a common, integrated SOA platform with native Java™ Message Service (JMS) support. This platform leverages many years of IBM domain expertise and customer experience to offer best-of-breed support for integration development, while at the same time offering unparalleled ease of use.

WebSphere Process Server builds on the WebSphere Application Server to provide a premier Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) and Web services technology-based application platform for deploying enterprise Web services solutions for dynamic On Demand Business.

WebSphere Process Server includes all of the features available in WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V6, including J2EE 1.4 support, Web Services Gateway, IBM Tivoli® Performance Viewer, clustering, and workload management support.

Included in these programs are several complementary products for use in the WebSphere Process Server environment, including restricted use licenses for DB2 Universal Database® Enterprise Edition, Tivoli Directory Server, and Tivoli Access Manager.

WebSphere Process Server 6.0.1 adds support for running on Linux on zSeries.

WebSphere Process Server now is built on WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) to provide a standards-based integration platform that facilitates connectivity between services. With Web Services connectivity, JMS messaging, and service-oriented integration, customers can improve flexibility, minimize disruption by using an ESB to handle integration logic, and allow the flow of business events and add needed intelligence to that flow.

WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus is designed to be easy to use from both a tools and a runtime perspective. New role-based administration support makes it easy to manage WebSphere ESB deployments through a simplified user experience for solution administrators.

WebSphere Process Server also includes a restricted use license of WebSphere Partner Gateway Advanced Edition to provide consolidated partner services for process integration with the WebSphere software platform. B2B gateway consolidation centralizes a company's B2B communications with trading partner communities, providing a central point of control for interactions among partners, and providing a security-rich environment at the edge of the enterprise. B2B gateway consolidation is of particular value when multiple business units interact with the same partners or partners with similar processes.

WebSphere Partner Gateway combines extensive partner profile management capabilities with a simple, reliable, and secure exchange for B2B messages capable of serving multiple B2B protocols and standards — to efficiently integrate your processes with those of your business partner community.

The WebSphere Partner Gateway restricted use license included with WebSphere Process Server entitles you to use a maximum of one WebSphere Partner Gateway Advanced Edition processor license and one Partner Connection license, regardless of the number of WebSphere Process Server licenses you acquire. The limitation applies based on your IBM Customer Number (that, is customer purchasing identifier).

WebSphere Integration Developer V6, optimized for developing composite applications that deploy to WebSphere Process Server V6, delivers an application development environment for building service-oriented, component-based applications that extend and integrate your existing IT assets. WebSphere Integration Developer has been extended to provide an integrated, interactive, and visual development experience for WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus that requires minimal programming skills.

You can get up and running quickly with comprehensive documentation, easy-to-understand samples, and a compelling out-of-the-box experience. The ability to simplify the task of declaring services and defining their interconnections and visually compose mediation functions with first-class tool support for intelligent message routing, enrichment, and transformation makes development easier.

WebSphere Integration Developer focuses on developer productivity by providing easy-to-use authoring tools that allow integration developers to rapidly build and debug composite business integration applications. Combined with other development tools from IBM, for example, Rational® Application Developer and WebSphere Business Modeler, it provides unparalleled support for enterprise developers.

Together, WebSphere Process Server and WebSphere Integration Developer provide a comprehensive list of services to enable the development of composite integration applications. These service components include:

  • Business processes
  • Human tasks
  • Business state machines
  • Business rules
  • Supporting services
    • Interface maps
    • Data maps
    • Relationships
    • Selectors
  • Java objects
  • Mediations

Business process

The business process component in WebSphere Process Server implements a WS-BPEL-compliant process engine. It represents the fourth release of a business process choreography engine on top of the highly scalable WebSphere Application Server.

WS-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 WS-BPEL includes:

  • An improved business process editor with an easy-to-use authoring experience.
  • Intuitive drag-and-drop tools to visually define the sequence and flow of WS-BPEL business processes.
  • A visual business process debugger to step through and debug WS-BPEL business processes.
  • Long- and short-running business processes.
  • Compensation support to provide transaction "rollback"-like support for loosely coupled business processes that cannot be undone automatically by the application server. Compensation enables undoing of already committed transactions in case of a failure later in the business process.
  • Integrated fault handling to provide an easy, integrated means of performing in-flow exception handling.
  • Support for including Java snippets and artifacts as part of a business process.

Human tasks

Human task support expands the reach of WS-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 task 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
  • Java Server Faces (JSF) components to create custom clients
  • 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
  • Originating task support to invoke any kind of service (including a business process)
  • Ad hoc creation and tracking of human tasks in addition to the "claim — save — transfer — complete" model for processing and tracking tasks that have been available since WebSphere Business Integration Server Foundation 5.1.
  • Administrative tasks

Human tasks can be used to invoke services (for example, a business process), participate in a business process (traditional staff activity), or administer a business process (process administrator). Additionally, pure human tasks are available to implement ad hoc processing. By separating human task support from the core WS-BPEL engine, WebSphere Process Server and WebSphere Integration Developer now allow creation of pure WS-BPEL code without IBM extensions for human tasks.

Business state machine

WebSphere Process Server provides a business state machine component that can be used to model heavily event-driven business process scenarios. These kinds of event-driven scenarios are sometimes hard to model in a WS-BPEL model, but very easy to model in a state machine diagram. This state machine is modeled after the Unified Modeling Language (UML) state machine diagrams. The combination of WS-BPEL business processes with business state machines gives WebSphere Process Server a unique edge when it comes to business process automation.

Business rules

WebSphere Process Server contains a business rule component that provides support for rule sets (If/Then rules) and decision tables. Business rules are grouped into a rule group and accessed just like any other component.

WebSphere Process Server also provides a Web client with national language-supported plain text display capabilities to allow changes to business rules to be deployed using an intuitive user interface without having to deploy the business rules again from the development environment. By separating the business rules component from the individual business process flows, a rule can be managed by the domain expert for that particular business rule, and by encapsulating rules as a service component, a rule can be used across multiple processes for maximum business flexibility.

Supporting components

WebSphere Process Server provides a wide range of supporting components in order to facilitate component-based application development. Among these are:

  • Interface maps: Can be used to convert semantically but not syntactically identical interfaces. These are very beneficial for importing existing services that may have a different interface definition than required. They are also beneficial for implementing a completely canonical integration solution where one component has no knowledge of the implementation details of another component.
  • Data maps: Can be used to translate one business object into another; for example, as part of an interface map, it is often necessary to translate the arguments of an operation.
  • Relationships: Can be used to convert key information to access the same data sets in various back-end systems and keep track of which data sets represent identical data. This enables cross-referencing and federation of heterogeneous business objects across disparate Enterprise Information System (EIS) systems. Relationships can be called from a business object map when converting one business object into another to manage the key information. Additionally lookup relationships can be defined for static data (for example, mapping postal or zip codes into city names).
  • Selectors: Can be used to dynamically invoke different components based on various rules (for example, date). Combined with interface maps a great deal of flexibility can be achieved. A Web Interface is provided to change these selector rules; for example, to invoke a newly deployed module without having to redeploy the calling module.

Mediations

WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus supports mediation of interactions between endpoints beyond protocol transcoding; it enables handling of integration logic processing in the ESB instead of in the interacting endpoints. That includes support for content and context-based routing of messages that are exchanged via the bus as well as other operations on those messages such as logging or transformation of those messages. Pre-built mediation functions allow mediations to be visually composed and include XML transformation, message logging, message routing, and database lookup. Customers can augment the function provided by the supplied primitives by programming their own "custom primitives."

Back-end system connectivity

WebSphere Integration Developer provides integrated, open standards-based support for building composite applications such as WS-BPEL business processes that integrate with back-end systems, including:

  • WS-BPEL business processes that integrate with back-end systems.
  • Integrated tool support for using J2EE Connector Architecture (J2C) 1.0 and 1.5 resource adapters to access back-end systems.
  • Enhanced tool integration for J2C adapters with tool plug-in extensions (available from IBM and IBM Business Partners).
  • Enhanced J2C 1.5 resource adapter support to leverage WebSphere Adapters.
  • Support for the entire suite of WebSphere Business Integration Adapters.
  • Easy-to-use tools for creating services out of J2C resource adapters or WebSphere Business Integration Adapters and including those services as part of an integration application.
  • Sophisticated wizards to manage the low-level data handling requirements for J2C resource adapters.
  • Support for Web services (JSR 109 / JAX-RPC-based).
  • Support for JMS messaging through the integrated WebSphere messaging resources (with full connectivity to existing WebSphere MQ based networks).
  • Support for calling EJB session beans.
  • 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.
  • Universal connectivity: WebSphere ESB enables users to connect interaction endpoints using a variety of interaction protocols (for example, JMS 1.1) and APIs. It supports interactions via JMS 1.1 implemented in WebSphere Platform Messaging as well as SOAP over HTTP(S) and SOAP over JMS. WebSphere ESB allows interoperation with the WebSphere family (WebSphere Application Server, WebSphere MQ, and WebSphere Message and Event Brokers) and can leverage WebSphere Adapters for capture and dissemination of business events.

J2EE application server

IBM WebSphere Process Server builds on the WebSphere Application Server to provide a premier J2EE and Web services technology-based application platform for deploying enterprise Web services solutions for dynamic On Demand Business.

Common criteria

A Common Criteria Initial Assessment was performed by Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) Common Criteria Testing Laboratory on WebSphere Process Server. The CCEVS lab determined that WebSphere Process Server derived its security functionality from the WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V6.0.2 runtime environment, and does not include additional security functionality. Therefore, a Common Criteria evaluation is not necessary because this product relies on the underlying runtime environment for security function and is neither IA (Information Assurance) nor IA-enabled.

FIPS 140-2

The cryptographic functionality of WebSphere Process Server is managed by the WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V6.0.2 runtime environment and WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment has been FIPS-140-2 certified.

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. Multicore 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 that 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
    • 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
      2. When a program is run in partitions that are members of a Shared Processing Pool, the smaller of the following:
        • The number of processors assigned to the pool
        • 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
    • 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 IFL engines of those VM guests
      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
        • 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. Multicore technology allows two or more processors (commonly called "cores") to be active on a single silicon chip.

  3. In the zSeries IFL environment, each IFL engine is considered a single "physical processor."
  4. Threading, a technique that makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does not affect the count of physical processors.

Authorized User:

An Authorized User (User) is one and only one individual, machine, program or device with a specific identity (ID) within or outside your enterprise.

A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) is evidence of your authorization to use a program and is required for each user accessing the program or any component, application, feature, function, or capability thereof, either directly or indirectly, through any means on behalf of the user in any manner.

The program may be installed on one or more computers, and accessed by multiple users provided that a user authorization has been obtained for each individual user.

  1. Users have unique specific identity and IDs cannot be shared.
  2. An ID may establish one or more connections and count as a single user.
  3. An ID may only be reassigned for the long-term replacement of personnel, machine, program, or device.

Limited warranty applies: Yes

Warranty: This program includes a warranty for one year from acquisition from IBM or an authorized IBM Business Partner. For one year from acquisition of the program, this warranty provides the customer with access to databases containing program information and FAQs, including any known fixes to defects, which the customer can download or otherwise obtain and install.

Program technical support: Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of three years from the 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.

Software Maintenance, previously referred to as Software Subscription and Technical Support, is included in the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement. Installation and technical support is provided by the Software Maintenance offering of the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement. This fee service provides voice and electronic access to IBM support organizations.

IBM includes one year of Software Maintenance with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Maintenance can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available.

While your Software Maintenance is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions; and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, every day of the year. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Guide at

Software Maintenance does not include assistance for the design and development of applications, your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment, or failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under this agreement.
