This 5-day instructor-led course provides an intermediate-level overview of the WebSphere Message Broker product, with a focus on application development functions and techniques for WebSphere Message Broker V6.1.
In this course, you learn how to use WebSphere Message Broker to develop platform-independent messaging applications. These message flow applications transport messages between service requestors and service providers, and allow the messages to be routed, transformed, and enriched as required. You learn why messaging is central to the concepts of service-oriented architecture (SOA) and how WebSphere Message Broker fits into the IBM SOA strategy. The course teaches you how to use WebSphere Message Broker to implement application connectivity across various message transport mechanisms, including WebSphere MQ, Web services, Java Messaging Services (JMS), and others. You learn to use WebSphere Message Broker to develop, deploy, and support applications that use both point-to-point and publish/subscribe messaging topologies.
The course begins with an overview of service-oriented architecture (SOA) and the placement of WebSphere Message Broker within the IBM SOA model. You then learn about the components of the WebSphere Message Broker development and runtime environments before moving on to examine message flow problem determination and error analysis. You then explore how to construct message flows that use ESQL, Java, and XSL Transform (XSLT), and how to use databases and maps in message flows. The concepts of message parsing and serialization and message modeling using the Message Repository Manager are explained, so that you understand how to write efficient message flows. You also learn how to create message flows that use Web services, Java Messaging Service (JMS), and WebSphere MQ message transport mechanisms. Finally, you explore a number of advanced topics such as how to extend the functionality of WebSphere Message Broker by using adapters and other WebSphere products.
Throughout the course, extensive hands-on lab exercises allow you to reinforce their learning by gaining practical experience with the skills and concepts that are discussed in the lectures. Some of the topics covered in the hands-on labs include creating and testing message flows, message modeling, retrieving and viewing statistical information, problem determination, and error handling.
Training Paths that reference this course are:
This intermediate-level course is designed for integration specialists and senior-level application developers who have experience working with WebSphere Message Broker. This course is not suitable for someone with little or no WebSphere Message Broker experience.
Before taking this course, you should have a working knowledge of IBM WebSphere MQ application programming concepts. You should also be familiar with the Windows XP operating system environment for the hands-on exercises, and should be able to invoke simple functions within that environment.
While not required, skills with SQL, Extensible Markup Language (XML), Java, and XML Path Language (XPath) are helpful.
