Course Description


This 4-day hands-on workshop (with optional, tailorable day 5) is intended to provide programmers an opportunity to learn IBM WebSphere Message Broker V8 (with FP1) development. Extensive hands-on exercises enable the student to reinforce lecture topics. The hands-on portions will use a Windows platform using the Eclipse-based Message Broker Toolkit.

This course teaches how to integrate business and applications following the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) principles and IBM WebSphere Message Broker 8. The course introduces how to design and write message flows, using V8 facilities. Due to the vast coverage of function in WebSphere Message Broker V8, not all available functions will be covered. The course is intended to provide developers with a sound foundation for developing in the WebSphere Message Broker environment, enabling them to make good use of product samples, documentation and other facilities when they begin their own development projects.

Transport protocols, such as JMS, Web services and MQ are discussed. An optional overview of XPath is available on request.

The number of optional topics for Day 5 is extensive. The number that can be covered will depend upon which topics are requested and whether those topics include exercises.


Upon completion of the WebSphere Message Broker V8 course, students will be able to:
  • Learn how to integrate business and applications following the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) principles and IBM WebSphere Message Broker 8
