This Redpaper will help systems programmers and WebSphere administrators exploit WebSphere Business Integration Server Foundation (WBISF) functions.

It covers the functional implementation on z/OS and includes information about how to install and configure WBISF for z/OS, V5.1 for high performance applications.

It contains guidelines and best practices to set up the Process Choreographer environment. It points out specific issues with SMP/E, ports and naming conventions, CEI and DB2, WebSphere MQ, security, BPE, and tuning, and provides recommendations how to tackle them.

This paper also introduces business process concepts and a number of ways to construct them in a comprehensive and efficient manner. The discussion includes the business process itself, compensation, audit logging using the Common Event Infrastructure, versioning, the underlying process language, and Web Service invocation.
