This IBM Redbooks publication provides assistance in migrating to version 5 of the WebSphere Business Integration Message Broker and making use of the vast array of new tools and functions it includes.
It begins with an overview of the BI Message Broker solution, which plays a key role in the integration of disparate applications and platforms by providing function and transport capabilities to support and facilitate enterprise-level business integration. New features and enhanced capabilities in the latest release are introduced. The book then describes how to install and configure the prerequisite software, and provides instructions for working with the Business Integration toolkit.
Migration from products in the WebSphere MQ Integrator V2.1 family to those in the WebSphere Business Integration Message Broker V5 is discussed in extensive detail. This book guides the reader through every step of planning and implementing a migration project. It covers generic and platform-specific considerations, then offers detailed scenarios which demonstrate the migration process on each major platform.
V5 enhancements are discussed, particularly the new functions in message flows and the use of the Message Repository Manager. Practical examples are presented to help the reader get immediate benefits from these capabilities. New tools for debugging, version control, and administration and accounting are also described. Methods for enabling Web services and using the WebSphere transports complete the coverage of V5 features and benefits.
