Error description

  • The following article in the information center is not accurate:
    
    http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/wci/v6r1m0/topic/com.ibm.websp
    here.cast_iron.doc/WS_creating_for_provide_service_activity.html
    
    In the "Procedure" section it states in step 1:
    
    In the Create Endpoint or Edit Endpoint pane, select the
    "Integration Appliance Provides Service" option and configure
    the fields as described in the following table.
    
    In step 1, the "Integration Appliance Provides Service option"
    does not exist, instead, the Cast Iron Studio has a radio button
    named "Provide" and if this radio button is selected, then there
    are options to select for the "Transport" pull-down.
    These options are also not described.

Problem summary

  • The information in the WebSphere Cast Iron Infocenter was
    incorrect and was misleading.
    
    The page will be updated with the following correct information:
    
    Create or edit a Web Service endpoint for a Provide Service
    activity.
    
    Procedure
    1. In the Create Endpoint or Edit Endpoint pane, select the
    Provide option and configure the relevant fields.
    Note: Changing the configuration properties of an endpoint
    affects all of the orchestrations that use that endpoint in
    the project. These changes are global, not local.
    
    2.
    Transport - Select one of the following transport options:
    - HTTP : Select this option if the web service provide project
    is to be deployed on appliance.
    - Cast Iron Cloud : Select this option if the web service
    provide project is to be deployed on Cast Iron Live.
    - Local : Select this option if this orchestration is called
    locally by other orchestrations. It can be used in studio and
    appliance.
    
    Port - Specifies the port number to communicate with the
    Integration Appliance acting as the Web Service.
    CAUTION: This port number is different to the port name
    specified in the WSDL.
    
    Path
    The path string specified in this field is added to the URL of
    the Integration
    Appliance to form the location element of the generated WSDL.
    For
    example, if your Integration Appliance is named:
    myAR.myCompany.com and
    the string specified in the Path field is
    /services/myservice/1.0, the
    resulting location element in the WSDL file is equal to the
    following string:
    http://myAR.myCompany.com/services/myservice/1.0
    
    Security
    - Select the None option if no security is required.
    - Select the HTTPS option to enable secure Web Service over SSL.
    
    Available for the HTTP transport option only. When server
    authentication is required, select the Server Certificate
    Alias Name
    check box to specify that the Integration Appliance acting as
    a server
    provides a certificate to the client. This certificate is used
    by the client
    for authentication and encryption. If this check box is
    selected, the
    name of the certificate must be provided. A certificate
    specified at the
    activity level with this check box, takes precedence over
    certificates
    specified on the Security > Certificates > Settings > Server SSL
    over
    data NIC entry in the WMC.
    
    Connection Pool Options -
    The Maximum Connections parameter specifies the maximum number
    of
    connections that the Integration Appliance can open in the
    connection pool.
    Specifying "0" means the number of connections is unlimited.
    By default,
    the Integration Appliance can have 25 connections open.
    
    Note: For some of the fields in the endpoint, you can define
    configuration
    properties to supply the values for these fields. The icon
    displays when you
    click in a field that supports a configuration property and a
    configuration
    property of the same type is already configured for the project.
