Duration 5 Days

This course is also available as self-paced virtual (e-learning) course, IBM Integration Bus V9 Application Development I (ZM665). This option does not require any travel.

This course is also available as instructor-led online course IBM Integration Bus V9 Application Development I (Remote Classroom) (VM665). Please note that this option does not require any travel.

In this 5-day instructor-led course, you learn how to use IBM Integration Bus to develop, deploy, and support platform-independent message flow applications. These applications use various messaging topologies to transport messages between service requesters and service providers, and also allow the messages to be routed, transformed, and enriched during processing.

The course explores message flow problem determination, with an emphasis on identifying and recovering from errors in message flows. You learn how to construct message flows that use extended Structured Query Language (ESQL), Java, and the IBM Graphical Data Mapping editor to transform messages. The course also explores how to control the flow of messages by using various message processing nodes, and how to use databases and maps to transform and enrich messages during processing. You review various messaging transports at a high level and gain a basic understanding of how message flows can use web services, Java Message Service (JMS), and other transport mechanisms. Finally, you explore how to extend IBM Integration Bus by using adapters and other IBM products.

Throughout the course, hands-on lab exercises allow you to practice the skills and concepts that are presented in the lectures. The hands-on labs cover topics such as creating and testing message flows, message modeling, problem determination, and error handling.

Prerequisites
