z/OS Getting Started: WebSphere Process Server and WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus V6

An IBM Redbooks publication

Abstract

WebSphere Process Server and WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus for z/OS enable your organization to run the latest service-oriented architecture (SOA) and Service Component Architecture (SCA) applications on your z/Series hardware.

This IBM Redbooks publication provides an introduction to these products on z/OS, gives detailed step-by-step instructions to install and configure these products, and provides examples of common operational tasks.

Part one of this book introduces WebSphere Process Server and WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus for z/OS, describing how these products fit into an SOA solution and how they take advantage of z/OS capabilities.

Part two provides detailed configuration guidance. Simple WebSphere Process Server and WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus configurations are described to get you started. Subsequent chapters show how to build a more complex WebSphere Process Server environment by introducing DB2, Network Deployment, and clustering.

Part three introduces operational considerations. Administration is discussed, connectivity to backend systems is demonstrated using a scenario to access CICS Transaction Server, and human tasks on z/OS are explained.
