LI77211: PROVIDE SERVICE ACTIVITY CREATE/EDIT ENDPOINT HAS INCORRECT INFORMATION IN THE INFOCENTER
Closed as documentation error.
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.
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.
The problem is to be resolved in a future WebSphere Cast Iron Infocenter update. The following page will contain the updates: http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/wci/v6r1m0/topic/com.ibm.websp here.cast_iron.doc/WS_creating_for_provide_service_activity.html The infocenter updates occur at the same time as fixpack releases. Announcements of new fix packs are made on the WebSphere Cast Iron Support Portal at http://www-947.ibm.com/support/entry/portal/Overview/Software/We bSphere_Cast_Iron_Cloud_integration Fix pack planned delivery schedules can be viewed here: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27036374
