This IBM® Redpaper publication was produced by the IBM WebSphere® BPM performance teams. It provides performance tuning tips and best practices for the following products:

-- WebSphere Process Server 6.2.0
-- WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus 6.2.0
-- WebSphere Integration Developer 6.2.0
-- WebSphere Business Monitor 6.2.0
-- WebSphere Business Services Fabric 6.2.0

These products represent an integrated development and runtime environment based on a key set of service-oriented architecture (SOA) and Business Process Management (BPM) technologies: Service Component Architecture (SCA), Service Data Object (SDO), and Business Process Execution Language for Web Services (BPEL). These technologies in turn build on the core capabilities of the WebSphere Application Server 6.1.

For those who are either considering or are in the very early stages of implementing a solution incorporating these products, this publication provides best practices for application development and deployment, and setup, tuning and configuration information. It provides a useful introduction to many of the issues influencing each product's performance, and could act as a guide for making rational first choices in terms of configuration and performance settings.

Finally, these products build on the capabilities of WebSphere Application Server, so consult tuning, configuration, and best practices information for WebSphere Application Server and corresponding platform JVMs (documented in the Related Publications chapter).
