Overview

Top rule

App Connect Enterprise 12 supports a breadth of integration needs across a modern digital enterprise whether it is on premises, on cloud, microservices container deployments, or traditional enterprise service bus (ESB) deployments. App Connect Enterprise 12 is ideal for businesses building API-driven and event-driven integration architectures to achieve their digital transformation objectives. App Connect Enterprise 12 includes artificial intelligence (AI) and other automation features to speed time to value and reduce risk of longer project timelines.

App Connect Enterprise 12 enhancements:

  • A new testing framework that lets you to create and manage test cases within the integration experience. This framework automates much of the test creation process by capturing test scenarios and related data as a developer works. This greatly speeds up project delivery and helps to improve overall quality by enabling broader test case coverage earlier in your development cycle. Features include a new wizard that provides a simple interface for interactive test generation, and a new message assembly editor for changing test data. Command-line tools for bulk message recording and automated test generation and playback facilitate organization adoption of agile development practices that decrease risk and speed delivery of updates and upgrades.
  • A new source-to-server build tool that automates the creation of integration servers, which are optimized based on the included integration artifacts.
  • Enhanced operations support through a centralized dashboard that manages App Connect integrations across any deployment topology, cloud, containers, and on premises.
  • API authoring experience enhancements with new tools to support OpenAPI 3.0 through a common user experience shared with IBM API Connect®.
  • A new validating JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) parser capable of checking inbound and outbound data for compliance against JSON schema (Draft 4) and OpenAPI 3 specification documents.
  • An improved development experience with updated user interfaces that uses the latest Eclipse release and restyled node development palette. A simplified command-line interface is available for scripting administrative actions.
  • A new tutorials gallery that provides an updated intuitive user interface with built-in tag and search capabilities. The gallery provides over 100 tutorials with step-by-step guidance covering existing scenarios and new features.

Description

Top rule

App Connect Enterprise automates integration scenarios with extensive connectivity and data format handling that are ready for immediate use. It delivers a powerful integration software solution that can be deployed in containers, on premises as a direct software install, or on a public cloud platform. With App Connect Enterprise, users gain a simpler experience when authoring and administering integration artifacts when using Eclipse. Web browser user interfaces enable developer productivity to quickly support the organization's digital business needs.

Users can develop integration solutions, using the latest Eclipse release with a new updated look, providing an enhanced experience for integration and developers of integration assets using Java™. The App Connect Enterprise Toolkit is supported on Windows and Linux with support for MacOS for App Connect Enterprise for Developers. The App Connect Enterprise Toolkit can be used to develop integrations that run on any of the supported runtime environments, including Windows, Linux, IBM AIX, IBM LinuxOne, IBM z/OS® Container Extensions (zCX), and Linux on IBM Power Systems (ppc64le) architectures. Deployment pattern capabilities are for ESB, container native microservices for both container managed services using Cloud Pak for Integration as well as bring-your-own Kubernetes runtimes and cloud-based services.

The primary capabilities and features of App Connect Enterprise 12:

  • Restyled and updated integration tooling

    The upgraded App Connect Enterprise Toolkit, designed primarily for integrators with an IT background, is now based on Eclipse 4.15, and provides frictionless access to enterprise data. The modernized look and feel simplifies the creation of message flows and message models from scratch. For those wanting more assistance, App Connect Enterprise Toolkit also provides built-in architectural patterns and a newly designed tutorial interface with over 100 tutorials, making it easier to get started. New features to enable test driven development make it easy to run unit tests for App Connect Enterprise integration flows with built-in Spies, Mocks and Stubs. This unit-testing framework also provides product-specific matchers, support for JUnit assertions, and third-party matcher libraries. The testing framework enables developers to iteratively test as they develop and automate test authoring to help mitigate the risk of issues that could result when upgrading and updating software. A new wizard provides a simple single interface for interactive test generation, and a new message assembly editor for changing test data. Command-line tools for bulk message recording and automated test generation assist with quality assurance of integrations and faster time to market when updating integration deployments or upgrading to an App Connect Enterprise version.

    The award-winning web browser-based App Connect Designer component helps bring together the teams that own and manage data with those that have the context to apply it by providing a no-code integration design tool, whether those individuals are in IT or are citizen integrators in a specific line of business. The option within App Connect Enterprise Designer to use intuitive interfaces to enhance the user development experience provides an optimal view and enhanced user experience of the organization's integration design.

  • No-code RESTful integration services

    App Connect Enterprise 12 supports building integration flows through a no-code approach and exposes those flows as RESTful APIs to users without them being an API development expert. These APIs can be seamlessly brought into API Connect Enterprise to handle the managing, securing, and socializing APIs so that development teams can reuse assets across business units. Whether building cloud scale, resilient applications from the ground up, or taking the opportunity to utilize existing technologies as part of a serverless architecture, organizations can rely on the rapid build and access to the systems when needed.

  • A new simplified API authoring tool

    The new API authoring tool is a common tool across API authoring in App Connect Enterprise, App Connect Designer and API Connect authoring experiences with support for OAPI V3. The API authoring tool offers API developers a simplified consistent experience across APIs and application integration development.

  • Flexible integration patterns

    App Connect Enterprise offers broad support, in a single platform, for API, automation, and event-driven technologies that complements other integration patterns. Deployment can be accomplished in the patterns users demand, such as container native microservices and enterprise service bus (ESB) architectures. The flexible integration patterns help ensure that existing investments in integration can be used where they are optimal, while supporting the rapid build of new use cases in application-centric, event-centric, and data-centric scenarios.

  • Broad deployment options

    These options include on-premises traditional integration patterns, highly flexible container native microservice deployments in many Kubernetes distributions, Cloud Pak for Integration, as well as options to deploy in public cloud native or hybrid cloud deployments. The decision of where to run the integration can be optimized for the specific needs of the business.

Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act

App Connect Enterprise 12 is capable as of May 28, 2021, when used in accordance with associated IBM documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it. A US Section 508 Accessibility Conformance Statement can be requested on the Product accessibility information website.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
