Description

WebSphere Message Broker File Extender extends the reach of WebSphere Business Integration Message Broker brokering capabilities into the domain of files.

The Program consists of a set of broker plug-in nodes (namely a file input node and a file output node) that are fully integrated with the Message Broker Toolkit palette, giving new and existing users of WebSphere Business Integration Message Broker immediate productivity with this new component.

The Program is a very important addition to the broker portfolio of add-on plug-ins nodes as it enables users to natively exploit from the broker the huge amount of information that in the vast majority of enterprises is still stored in flat files.

Users can apply brokering services such as transformation, enrichment, logging, and routing to file content, and seamlessly convert messages into files, file records, and vice versa, by simply wiring the relevant input/output node into the appropriate message flow.

The Program administration model adheres to the overall WebSphere Business Integration Message Broker administration paradigm. Configuring the Program is as simple as dragging a node into a message flow and editing a few user specified node properties using the standard broker toolkit. In order to support change management procedures in an effective way, some of the node properties can be overridden at deploy time.

The following list summarizes the functions and capabilities of the WebSphere Message Broker File Extender:

Ability to read from and write to a file directly using input and output nodes in a message flow

The WebSphere Message Broker File Extender File Input and File Output nodes allow you to write a message flow that takes input from files stored in a local file system source directory (possibly using wildcards to select specific file subsets), and to produce output in the form of files written to a local file system target directory. When reading from a file, you have the option of propagating the file content to the message flow either record by record or as a single buffer of information; in both cases the information read from files can be parsed exploiting the native IBM WebSphere Business Integration Message Broker MRM definitions.

Ability to operate on file information with ESQL and built-in IBM WebSphere Business Integration Message Broker nodes

The information read from a file or written to a file can be handled from within a message flow using the standard facilities offered by IBM WebSphere Business Integration Message Broker, such as Compute nodes with ESQL language, Mapping nodes, Filter nodes, and MRM parsing.

Support for file-to-file message flows

When a WebSphere Message Broker File Extender File Input node is used in conjunction with a WebSphere Message Broker File Extender File Output node, the resulting message flow can be used to perform pure file brokering functions such as: file format conversion, file content augmentation, and filtering.

Support for File to Message and Message to File message flows

When a WebSphere Message Broker File Extender File Input node is used in conjunction with an MQ Output node, or vice versa, when an MQ Input node is used in conjunction with a WebSphere Message Broker File Extender File Output node, the resulting message flow can be used to implement two-way interfaces between message-based applications and file-based applications, possibly including value-added function such as on the fly format conversion (for example from a COBOL copybook-like format to XML) and routing.

One-click install and extreme ease of use

The WebSphere Message Broker File Extender features a one-click install, a key attribute of IBM's increased focus on supreme ease of use. Other usability features include smart defaults for most configuration parameters and several working sample message flows.

Benefits of WebSphere Message Broker File Extender

WebSphere Message Broker File Extender and IBM WebSphere Business Integration Message Broker are an ideal platform for business integration. They offer you the essential flexibility to start small and grow with your customer demands. Ease of implementation and ease of use in production ensures that time to value can be slashed and return on investment maximized. These integration offerings help you improve control of your business, allowing rapid response to events as they occur, and enable timely delivery of business information that supports key business decisions.

The use of WebSphere Message Broker File Extender means that useful and timely information extracted from files can be provided through the IBM WebSphere Business Integration Message Broker for customers, suppliers, and partners in order to improve customer satisfaction and competitiveness. It can help reduce delivery cycle times and error rates, improving operational performance, including reducing inventory and improving cash flow to increase return on capital employed.

WebSphere Message Broker File Extender extends the value of previous investments by supporting and transforming information between legacy file-based applications and new applications based on different protocols, standards, and formats.

Accessibility by people with disabilities

Administration of the program is controlled by the Message Broker Toolkit for WebSphere Studio which contains the Eclipse node. The externals exposed through the Eclipse node attributes editor meet the requirements for keyboard access, object information, sounds, display, timing, documentation, and accessibility testing.

The Message Flow Editor overview and palette are not accessible — they do not allow keyboard access to all functions. This is due to the underlying Flow Composition Builder Eclipse component, which does not provide keyboard support.

Charges for authorized use of the program are based on Processor License Units (PLUs). The use of the program on any server machine requires one PLU to be acquired (from IBM or an IBM Business Partner) for each processor contained in the server machine on which any copy of the program is to run. PLUs are required for every server machine on which the program is installed. You are also required to obtain a corresponding number of additional PLUs if the program installation is moved to a server machine with a greater number of processors, or if any additional processors are added to the server machine on which the program is installed.

Note that the pricing is based on the number of processors in the server machine, regardless of whether they are all being used to execute the program.

Failure to comply with the requirement for the appropriate number of PLUs will constitute a material breach of the terms of this license and will automatically terminate your rights in connection therewith.

Charge metrics definitions

"Per processor" charging under Full Capacity

In Full Capacity charging — where charges are based on a capacity-based metric, such as a processor, Proofs of Entitlement (PoEs) must be acquired for all capacity that is active on the server where the Program or a component of the Program is run.

As an example, a customer has ordered a server with four processors. The server is shipped with six processors, but two of them are "inactive." Thus, four processors are active for the customer.

Notes:

  1. IBM defines a physical processor in a computer as a functional unit that interprets and executes instructions. A physical processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and logic units.
  2. Multi-core technology allows two or more processors (commonly called "cores") to be active on a single silicon chip. With multi-core technology, IBM considers each "core" to be a physical processor. For example, in a dual-core chip, there are two physical processors residing on the single silicon chip.
  3. In the zSeries' Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) environment, each IFL engine is considered a single "physical processor."
  4. Threading, a technique which makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does not affect the count of physical processors.
  5. Where "blade" technology is employed, each "blade" is considered a separate server and charging is based upon the total number of processors on the blade on which the Program is run.
