    This IBM Redbooks publication shows you how to develop a JCA resource adapter based on IBM WebSphere Adapter Architecture. The custom adapter we build in this book implements J2EE Connector architecture (JCA), version 1.5, supporting managed, bidirectional connectivity between EISs and J2EE components in WebSphere Process Server.

    The book is divided in two parts:

    * The components of a WebSphere Adapter

    * How to implement this adapter in an integrated scenario

    WebSphere Adapter Architecture supports Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), providing you with the ability to develop and modify integration applications dynamically. With SOA, you can also integrate existing applications with newer applications so that they work together transparently.

    WebSphere Process Server V6.0.1 is a comprehensive SOA integration platform based on WebSphere Application Server V6. You can use WebSphere Process Server to develop and execute standards-based, component-based business integration applications.

    Finally, we show you how to expose this adapter as an SCA service and use it with WebSphere Process server V6.0.1.
