In addition to the existing WebSphere Message Broker Parser capability (MRM), WebSphere Message Broker V8.0 introduces a new Data Format Description Language (DFDL) based parser which provides an open standard based, efficient means of accessing, parsing, and transforming data held in many different formats with a focus on text and binary data.
Data within a business environment takes numerous different forms, ranging from database records to structured text and XML, as well as raw binary formats common across many applications. The ability to quickly model and transform this data into new formats can provide faster processing across business boundaries and unlock significant potential in previously unused sources of valuable customer information.
Using the DFDL standard, clients may choose to build their own custom transforms. These either can be outside of the WebSphere Message Broker environment for use across their business applications, or can take full advantage of new integrated Graphical tooling within WebSphere Message Broker to speed development.
Developers can take advantage of improved usability when creating models for text and binary data, through new guided authoring wizards. They also have the ability to create models by marking up example data. Additionally, model definitions can be developed and tested fully in the WebSphere Message Broker Toolkit environment without deploying to a running broker instance.
