This course is designed to provide general technical knowledge for application architects and developers to effectively utilize IBM’s WebSphere Message Broker to integrate new and existing applications. This course covers the architecture, administration, and using of WMB. Students will be using the graphical user interface Message Broker Toolkit to develop, test and manage message flows, message sets and apply them in applications. IBM supplied nodes are described and exercises to implement them are provided. Tools to deploy and debug message flows are featured. ESQL concepts and common functions will be covered. This course is based on WMB Version 6.1. There are exercises following each module to provide students with hands on experience with the product.
At the end of this course, students will be able to:
  • Understand fundamental concepts of Service oriented Architecture (SOA) and Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) and how the role WMB may play on the implementation
  • Understand the components of Message Broker
  • Work with the Message Broker Toolkit
  • Develop and test Message Flows using different transports.
  • Understand the functions of many of the IBM supplied Nodes
  • Use basic ESQL in message flows to do message transformation and routing
  • Accessing Databases in Message flow
  • Maintaining Transaction integrity in Message Flows
  • Create and use simple message layouts using the Message Repository Manager (MRM)
  • Use WMB mapping to transform messages
  • Use JAVA to do transformation and routing messages in Message Flows
  • Familiar different problem determination tools to isolate problems
  • Describe functions of Publish and Subscribe provided by WMB
  • Understand functions of WMB to provide Web Service and SOAP/HTTP access in message flows
  • Use JMS in flows.
  • Understand the security features provided by the Message Broker
  • Message Broker Introduction
  • IBM WebSphere  Message Broker Overview
  • Customization and Administration
  • Basic ESQL
  • Message Flow Development
  • Nodes Processing
  • Message Format Service
  • Advance Flows and Nodes
  • WMB Publish and Subscribe
  • Broker Performance and Transaction
  • Web Services
This course is designed for applications architects, designers and developers to learn all the basics of WebSphere Message Broker. System Administrators will benefit as well.
Students must have experience and knowledge of WMQ concepts and application programming.  Some knowledge of SQL, databases administration and java is desirable.
