This course provides an intermediate-level continuation of the topics necessary to successfully create IBM Integration Bus message flow applications and integration services.
This course focuses on using IBM Integration Bus to develop, deploy, and support platform-independent message flow applications and integration services. These applications and integration services use various messaging topologies to transport data between service requesters and service providers, and also allow the data to be routed, transformed, and enriched during processing.
Topics in this course include creating integration services and message flow applications that use and provide web services. You also learn how to use event driven processing nodes and how to use the record and replay facility to capture and view data during processing. You also learn how IBM Integration Bus interacts with other IBM and enterprise information products. Lab exercises throughout the course give you an opportunity to practice your new skills.
Before taking this course, you should successfully complete IBM Integration Bus V10 Application Development I (WM666G), which introduces IBM Integration Bus development topics that are necessary for success in this course.
This intermediate course is designed for integration specialists and senior-level developers with experience in IBM Integration Bus application development.
