In the Spotlight

  1. Effective 30 June 2014, IBM will withdraw support for the WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliances 4.0.1 firmware level
    Remote Technical assistance (Q&A, usage) as well as fixpack support provided through the IBM firmware services and support organization will be withdrawn for the 4.0.1 firmware level on 30 June 2014.
  2. IBM WebSphere DataPower Gateway Appliances firmware V7.0 announced!
    WebSphere DataPower gateway appliances are positioned to act as security and integration gateways for a full range of web, mobile, API, service-oriented architecture (SOA), B2B, and cloud workloads in a single, highly secure, highly consumable, DMZ-ready appliance.
  3. New WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliances firmware fix packs are available!
    Fix packs for WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliance firmware versions 6.0.1, 6.0.0 and 5.0.0 are available.
  4. Lifecycle dates you should be aware of for other supported DataPower SOA Appliances hardware machine types
    Lifecycle dates for the Hardware Generation Machine Types (M/T): 9235, 4195, 7199, 7198 and 2426.
  5. Changes to WebSphere JMS Front Side Handler drops messages
    Configuration changes to the WebSphere JMS Front Side Handler while transactions are flowing might cause messages to be dropped when not using transactionality. The WebSphere JMS Front Side Handler must be referencing a WebSphere JMS Server configuration with transactionality disabled.
  6. SFTP Poller Frontside Handler does not pick up files from directory
    When the SFTP Poller Frontside Handler is configured on the IBM WebSphere DataPower SOA appliance to retrieve files from a directory on the SFTP server, the SFTP poller might not pick up the files depending on the number of files in the directory. For example, the SFTP poller might not pick up files if the number of files in the directory is greater than 50,000.
  7. Setting SQL configuration parameter 'DescribeParam' to 0 results in a failure on the IBM WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliance
    I configured an SQL Data source object with the configuration parameter 'DescribeParam' set to 0 and now all my SQL calls fail with an error message similar to the following: [0x818000a7][sql][error] sql-source(SQL_DSO): tid(1234567): Database reported query error: CLI0150E Driver not capable. SQLSTATE=HYC00 Is this expected?
  8. IBM DataPower or B2B standby group members ignoring active members
    I have an appliance in an active state when it should be in standby or listen state. If I reload, change an interface setting, or remove and add the standby group the appliance will change to the expected standby or listen state. Why does this happen?
  9. WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliances SFTP Transfers Failing Due to Unsupported Mode
    Datapower has an SFTP server front side handler attached to a MPGW, but an SFTP transfer from a client fails with the unsupported error.
  10. DataPower firmware V6 and later does not allow WSDLs with a non-digit port value for soap:address location URLs
    Why does DataPower firmware V6 and later fail to compile WSDLs (or add them to a Web Service Proxy) if they contain a non-digit port value for soap:address location URLs?
  11. WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliances Integration Between DataPower and InfoSphere Streams with MQSeries.
    We are trying to proceed integration between DataPower and InfoSphere Streams with MQ. The full chain is: Client (HTTP) -> DP -> Queue Manager <- Streams (DataPower sends MQ messages and Streams consumes them). After testing different configurations, we chose to send MQ/JMS messages of type StreamMessage. See additional details in this support document.
