This IBM Redbooks publication describes the big phases in a business integration project. First, we discuss the planning and system design phase for a business integration infrastructure that should be able to support several business integration projects.
When the planning and design is complete, we discuss the implementation of several run-time engines of a WebSphere Business Integration Server V4.2.2 implementation. We also cover the implementation steps for a development environment and an administration environment.
The next phase is the development and testing of a business integration solution that can be deployed within the infrastructure. The integration solution combines the powers of the three run-time engines of WebSphere Business Integration Server V4.2.2, providing for human interaction, straight-through processing, and message brokering and aggregation.
The last phase of a business integration project is the process of moving the solution to production and determining how to manage this solution, addressing such issues as how to stop and start components in a coordinated way, and where to find answers for run-time problems. The book ends with a discussion about performance tuning that is focused on WebSphere InterChange Server V4.2.2.
