New features in WebSphere ESB V6.0.2

To realize the benefits of SOA (providing business flexibility and responsiveness), information must flow freely throughout the stages of the SOA life cycle. Administrators require the capability to change things on the fly as business conditions change. Business monitors need the ability to feed and define key events for scoreboard monitoring. In addition, WebSphere ESB provides integration with WebSphere Service Registry and Repository.

In this release, WebSphere ESB greatly enhances integration throughout the SOA life cycle. New administration features enable dynamic reconfiguration. Integration with WebSphere Service Registry and Repository delivers end-to-end service governance.

Increased business flexibility and responsiveness through dynamic reconfiguration

  • Administrative configuration of end points: Administrators can modify the definition of a service end point as their business requirements change.
  • Administrative configuration of meditations: Administrators can dynamically change the behavior of a running mediation.
  • Dynamic end-point selection: Administrators can change end points programmatically, based on a value contained in a message, the time of the day, by looking up an end-point definition from a registry, or any other predetermined parameters.

Flexible and dynamic service consumability

Integration with WebSphere Service Registry and Repository allows WebSphere ESB to use metadata from the registry and repository to govern its behavior and help ensure that runtime changes are governed by approved policies.

  • New dynamic end point lookup primitive: The administrator can query service end-point information from WebSphere Service Registry and Repository with the dynamic end-point lookup primitive without redevelopment and deployment.
  • ITCAM for SOA feeds service performance information to WebSphere Service Registry and Repository, giving WebSphere ESB better control for its dynamic selection of service end points.

Simplified and reduced time to market

  • Accelerate time to market and reduce development time with bundled technology adapters via WebSphere Integration Developer packaging.
  • Increase business activity management (BAM) flexibility with the CEI (common event infrastructure) primitive so that you can define and feed events into WebSphere Business Monitor.

Usability improvements

  • Allows you to set a value in a message element, without writing message transformation code, by using the message element setter.
  • Allows remote access to DB2® artifacts on System z™ from a distributed environment.
  • Has support for IBM DB2 on z/OS® as a remote data base management system (DBMS).
  • Provides new samples to facilitate the development of custom data bindings (datahandler support).
  • Delivers simplified server configuration using the WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment console for clusters and multiple cells.

Additional platform support

  • Provides additional platform support for Solaris 10 (SPARC and x86-64), HP-UX 11i2 (PA-RISC), SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, and Linux on zSeries (64-bit).

Enhancements in WebSphere ESB V6.0.2 include:

  • The new WebSphere MQ JMS binding extends WebSphere MQ assets as part of your ESB faster
  • The WebSphere MQ native binding support provides easier and faster integration with WebSphere Message Broker and WebSphere MQ

FIPS 140-2

The cryptographic functionality of WebSphere ESB is managed by the WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V6.0.2 runtime environment.

WebSphere Process Server

WebSphere Process Server delivers a unique integration framework that simplifies existing IT. Often, as IT assets grow to support business demand, so too does their complexity and manageability. WebSphere Process Server helps deliver an SOA infrastructure that provides one common model to orchestrate, mediate, connect, map, and execute the underlying IT functions. With this, WebSphere Process Server simplifies integration of business processes by leveraging existing IT assets as reusable services, but without the complexities associated with traditional integration methodologies.

One of the biggest challenges for businesses is to have the agility to respond on demand to business processes. Unlike traditional integration methodologies, WebSphere Process Server allows you to respond dynamically to business demands and adapt to business conditions. This is made possible with rich features like business rules, business state machines, and interface mapping. Its open standards-based services architecture allows clients to change underlying IT assets, with minimal impact on business processes.

WebSphere Process Server is part of an entire integration platform that reaches to the very core of business applications such as SAP, Oracle, and many others by using predefined business and technology WebSphere Adapters.

WebSphere Process Server is built using a common platform and tools that inherit the capabilities of WebSphere ESB and WebSphere Application Server, which provides rich capability. It also exploits technology from other IBM brands such as DB2, Tivoli®, Lotus®, and Rational®, as well as third-party platforms such as Microsoft™ .NET and Java.

    • Provides a remote client install option, which provides an environment for custom remote clients that use the WebSphere Process Server APIs (not just on the same system as WebSphere Process Server).
    • Allows work to be assigned to a group, or team, of individuals who all share the same job or responsibility, in shifts or in parallel.
    • Handles ad hoc tasks: Gives line of business users the flexibility to create additional tasks (insert additional tasks into a task-list), schedule follow-up work for the same user, or follow-on tasks for co-workers, and handle events that were not planned for in advance.
    • Allows a customized e-mail message for human task escalations (for example, to alert a manager that a task has not been processed).
    • Post-processing of staff query results allows you to plug in customer-specific workforce management policies, such as staff workload balancing, substitute when absent, or prefer active users, and supports the integration of additional custom staff repositories.
    • Allows you to query and filter lists of business processes based on client-specific process data, such as order ID or client name; and store those queries and filters as private views.
    • Allows you to redistribute tasks in reflection of organizational staff and responsibility changes, using a timer-controlled daemon.
    • Allows you to automatically present users the next task at hand within the same business process, using a server-controlled page flow capability.
    • Provides users with a graphical view of processes, to track status and drill down into each individual activity.
  • Provides run-time administration improvements (dynamic reconfiguration, with no need to rebuild or redeploy).
    • Administration configuration of mediation properties and end points

It can be expanded to other roles like business analyst or J2EE developer by adding other products from the IBM family of development tools.

SOA, ESB, and BPM

In an 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.

Some users may find that simple messaging based connectivity between well-matched applications delivers the aspects of integration that they require to implement an effective ESB. Other users may find that to extend these capabilities out into their wider deployed infrastructure, they realize value of other parts of the WebSphere software portfolio.

As key members of the WebSphere software portfolio, WebSphere ESB and WebSphere Message Broker enable your users 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 beyond more standardized programming models such as J2EE and .NET.

The proven delivery mechanisms of WebSphere MQ and the JMS messaging resources delivered by WebSphere Application Server, and available in WebSphere ESB, extend the reach of the ESB with reliable connectivity throughout the enterprise for connecting and integrating virtually any type of application or system. WebSphere Application Server messaging resources provide a best-of-breed Java Message Service (JMS) implementation for use with connecting to J2EE-hosted applications. WebSphere MQ seamlessly extends those messaging resources to non-J2EE environments to integrate virtually anything, across more than 80 platforms. WebSphere ESB can make use of both types of messaging environment as required.

WebSphere ESB delivers an enterprise service bus that will connect applications that have standards based interfaces in order to power your SOA. WebSphere ESB is used in conjunction with WebSphere Integration Developer, which is designed with ease of use in mind and requires minimal programming skills, based around an interactive visual environment. To create a true ESB, WebSphere ESB also supports seamless integration with the WebSphere software stack, enabling you to move up the stack to solve more complex business problems, as well as the Web services-based integration provided by WebSphere ESB.

Business Process Management (BPM) with SOA allows you to separate "what you do" from "how you do it." Abstracting the definition of the business processes from how those processes are executed gives businesses greater responsiveness and flexibility. This separation allows for changes to the business process without significant reengineering of the underlying technology and, conversely, allows for changes to the technology infrastructure without impacting the business process.

WebSphere Message Broker adds services such as content-based message routing and transformation, as well as support for a range of message distribution options and protocols to improve their flexibility and performance. These features allow WebSphere Message Broker to extend the standardized integration features of an enterprise service bus out to encompass all business systems and applications, making full use of the IT assets of the business, and even allowing better integration with the applications and business processes of business partners.

WebSphere software provides integration capabilities that enable you to begin reaping the benefits of service-oriented architectures and begin deploying end-to-end environments that provide the benefits of an ESB across all of a business infrastructure today.

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

WebSphere Process Server is the flagship WebSphere process integration offering for SOA. It is the single Process Integration server to support all styles of integration based on SOA. WebSphere Process Server allows developers to create composite applications in an SOA environment. It is the single process server for all your process choreography needs.

WebSphere Process Server is the run-time engine for IBM's Business Process Management portfolio. IBM's Business Process Management (BPM) suite enables clients to model, assemble, deploy, and monitor their end-to-end business workflows. WebSphere Process Server enables the life cycle of a business process with integration with WebSphere Business Modeler and WebSphere Business Monitor. Clients can import, design, and analyze their business processes using WebSphere Business Modeler. With WebSphere Process Server, clients can then execute their business processes in an SOA environment. Through WebSphere Business Monitor, clients can get real-time visibility into their business process performance.

WebSphere Process Server also enables:

  • Interoperability with the WebSphere portfolio: WebSphere offers a compelling set of capabilities for people, information, and application integration. WebSphere Process Server seamlessly integrates with these capabilities.
  • Interoperability with non-IBM products: WebSphere Process Server allows you to interoperate with non-WebSphere applications using open-standards and a rich set of adapters.
  • Integrating your Business Partner community using industry protocols: WebSphere Partner Gateway, with its rich set of industry-specific services, is packaged with WebSphere Process Server.

Charge metrics definitions

Value Unit

A Value Unit is a pricing charge metric for Program license entitlements which is based upon the quantity of a specific designated measurement used for a given Program. Each Program has a designated measurement. The most commonly used designated measurement is a processor core. However, for select Programs, there are other designated measurements such as users, client devices, and messages. The number of Value Unit entitlements required for Your specific implementation of the given Program must be obtained from a conversion table associated with the Program. You must obtain a proof of entitlement (POE) for the appropriate number of Value Unit entitlements for Your implementation. The Value Unit entitlements of a given Program cannot be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Unit entitlements of another Program.

Processor (Value Unit)

A processor (commonly called a "CPU" or "core") is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes instructions. A processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and/or logic unit. With multi-core technology, each core is considered a processor. Not all processors require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To determine the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the processor value unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage Web site

With full capacity licensing, a proof of entitlement (POE) must be acquired for the appropriate number of value units based on all activated processors on the server available to the Program or a component of the Program.

Sub-Capacity Processor (Value Unit)

In sub-capacity licensing, a proof of entitlement (POE) must be acquired for the appropriate number of value units based on all activated processors in partitions (utilizing eligible partitioning technologies) on the server available to the Program or a component of the Program.

Authorized User

An authorized user is one and only one individual (named or unnamed) within or outside Your enterprise. A proof of entitlement (POE) must be obtained for each individual user accessing the Program in any manner. A Program licensed under an authorized user POE may be installed on a single computer or server, and accessed by multiple users, provided that a POE has been obtained for each individual user accessing the Program either directly or indirectly (via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means on behalf of the user.

Sub-capacity for selected middleware products

Sub-capacity licensing on a per-processor or per value unit basis is available for selected middleware products. To offer sub-capacity licensing, IBM software products implement IBM Tivoli License Manager within their offerings so that customers can monitor and report quarterly to IBM on their use of the programs on a continuous basis.

More information can be found on the Passport Advantage web site

Eligibility requirements for sub-capacity licensing

To be eligible for sub-capacity licensing terms on this product, you must agree to install and configure IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software, in accordance with the IBM Tivoli License Manager publications, and to enable the collection of program use data on all eligible machines subject to sub-capacity terms.

For those machines running programs with sub-capacity licensing terms, you must use IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software to monitor program use and submit to IBM an IBM Use Report each calendar quarter. Multiple copies of IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software or IBM Tivoli License Manager are not required. You can use more copies if you need them to support your operational environment, but only one copy is required to monitor all your sub-capacity licensed products.

Additionally, if this is the first product you have licensed under sub-capacity terms, you must agree to the terms of an attachment to your Passport Advantage or Passport Advantage Express contract and submit a new Passport Advantage enrollment form. First-time sub-capacity clients also have an opportunity to ensure a Primary Business Contact is established for their contracts.

For more information on required and entitled license capacity, license requirements and reporting refer to Software Announcement 205-093 , dated April 19, 2005.

If you order (this product) under sub-capacity terms, IBM Tivoli License Manager for IBM Software will be made available to you if you do not already have one. You must install and configure this tool for your sub-capacity products. Alternately, you can use Tivoli License Manager. Once the license manager software is installed, you will be required to register online (IBM may need to contact you in order to finalize the registration process).

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 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 because these offerings apply to Programs already acquired and in use by the licensed user.

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 available on the IBM eServer® platform. These services provide the opportunity for 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 may result in 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.
