WebSphere® Business Services Fabric (Fabric) is a comprehensive service-oriented architecture (SOA) offering that is designed to extend the IBM® business process management platform to deliver flexible composite business applications.

In this IBM Redbooks® publication, we provide a complete overview of Fabric, from an architectural introduction, to an installation guide, and a step-by-step scenario that describes how to model, assemble, deploy, and manage composite business applications.

Part 1 of this book is an architectural and technical introduction to Fabric and related concepts.

In Part 2, we use a fictitious business scenario to show you how to build composite business applications in Fabric. We also provide extensive step-by-step instructions.

In Part 3, we discuss how to integrate Fabric with other IBM solutions and technologies, which includes WebSphere Service Registry and Repository, Tivoli® Composite Application Manager for SOA, and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).
