An updated version of this course is available. For more information, click IBM Integration Bus V9 Application Development II (WM675G).

This course is also available as self-paced virtual (e-learning) course IBM WebSphere Message Broker V8 Application Development II (ZM674G). This option does not require any travel.

This course provides an intermediate-level continuation of the topics that were introduced in IBM WebSphere Message Broker V8 Application Development I (WM664G) and IBM WebSphere Message Broker V8 Application Development I (ZM664G).

This course extends your knowledge of the WebSphere Message Broker product, focusing on using WebSphere Message Broker to develop, deploy, and support platform-independent message flow applications. These applications use various messaging topologies to transport messages between service requestors and service providers, and also allow the messages to be routed, transformed, and enriched during processing.

Topics in this course include writing message flows that use web services, working with JMS transports, modeling and testing messages with the Data Format Description Language (DFDL), and aggregating messages from multiple sources. You also learn how to extend message flows to interact with FTP servers and other products, and how to use the publish/subscribe messaging topology. They implement built-in patterns and learn how to develop, test, and deploy user-defined patterns. You also learn how WebSphere Message Broker interacts with other products, and how to use the record and replay facility to capture and view messages during processing. Extensive labs throughout the course enable you to practice your new skills.

The lab environment for this course uses the Windows platform.
