    • IBM Software Group Agenda Service Oriented Architectures • What is a service and why do I need SOA? Enterprise Service Bus • What is it and what does it mean for SOA? • Functions of an ESB Protocols, Route, Transform, Eventing • What is an Advanced ESB? Building an ESB with WebSphere MQ and Message Broker • Features and functions to build an ESB Summary & References Building an Advanced ESB for SOA with WebSphere Message Broker Version 6
    • IBM Software Group Service Oriented Architectures Building an Advanced ESB for SOA with WebSphere Message Broker Version 6
    • IBM Software Group What is a Service? (Ideally) a self-contained, stateless business function that accepts one or more requests and returns one or more responses through a well- defined, standard interface. Services perform discrete units of work such as editing and processing a transaction. Services should not depend on the state of other functions or processes. The technology used to provide a service, such as a programming language, does not form part of its definition. Building an Advanced ESB for SOA with WebSphere Message Broker Version 6
    • IBM Software Group Services and Applications Applications implement most of today’s Services • There’s nothing wrong with this! How are services and applications related? • Application can implement the Service exactly • Service can be implemented within part of an Application − Including multiple services • Combination of Applications can implement the service KEY: Application Service Building an Advanced ESB for SOA with WebSphere Message Broker Version 6
    • IBM Software Group Identifying Services Technology reality •“Where I am right now” •“Bottom Up” approach •Example: CICS transactions, MQ applications, Files, JSP, EJB… Business driven •“Top Down” •“Where I’d like to be in the future” −Explicitly user and business focussed Mixed Business and Technology •“Middle Out” •Emphasis on cooperative and evolutionary approach Building an Advanced ESB for SOA with WebSphere Message Broker Version 6
    • IBM Software Group What is a SOA? A software architecture which • …defines the use of services to support the requirements of software users. Resources are available to other participants as independent services accessed in a standardized way. • … comprises loosely coupled, high interoperable application services. These services interoperate based on a formal definition independent of the underlying platform and programming language. The interface definition hides the vendor and language-specific implementation. • … is independent of development technology (e.g. Java, .NET, COBOL, C, ASM). The software components become very reusable because the interface is defined in a standards-compliant manner. Building an Advanced ESB for SOA with WebSphere Message Broker Version 6
    • IBM Software Group How do you know when you’ve got SOA? + = + = Easy to connect services together without knowing that they had to be connected initially • Take components / services and add them together • Then, later add more services / components Building an Advanced ESB for SOA with WebSphere Message Broker Version 6
    • IBM Software Group What are the benefits of SOA? Asset reuse • Service is component of reuse Lower Development Cost • Eliminate duplicate services Faster Time-to-Value • Compose new applications from existing services Extend Business Reach • Allow new clients to exploit existing services without change Providing a new front end Business Responsiveness • Dynamically reconfigure services to meet new business opportunities Governance • Standardize, mandate and measure service usage Allows you to introduce control Building an Advanced ESB for SOA with WebSphere Message Broker Version 6
    • IBM Software Group Enterprise Service Bus Building an Advanced ESB for SOA with WebSphere Message Broker Version 6
    • IBM Software Group What is an ESB? A software infrastructure for SOA which • … comprises a set of interaction points to which services are connected. Services are able to invoke other services which are connected to the bus. • ... simplifies an SOA by minimizing the explicit connectivity between services. • … allows the creation of dynamic and flexible connectivity between services during service invocation without changing service consumers or providers. Building an Advanced ESB for SOA with WebSphere Message Broker Version 6
    • IBM Software Group SOA with an ESB Simplification of Infrastructure • It DOES simplify the way you think about service connectivity. • It DOESN’T change the way you think about services. Dynamic and Flexible Infrastructure • New connectivity e.g. add customer request audit. • Flexible connectivity e.g. prioritize customer request. • Service replacement e.g. New service upgrade without… Building an Advanced ESB for SOA with WebSphere Message Broker Version 6
    • IBM Software Group Functions of an ESB Four functions in an ESB • Protocol support • Routing • Transformation • Eventing, including CEP Other functions… • Security can be performed in ESB, but not core functionality Shape = Protocol Color = Data type Building an Advanced ESB for SOA with WebSphere Message Broker Version 6
    • IBM Software Group What are the different kinds of ESB? Basic ESB • XML as only supported data format • Web Services protocol emphasis (SOAP/HTTP) • Adapters for everything XML conversion on and off the bus Protocol conversion on and off the bus Advanced ESB • All formats supported natively XML, COBOL, C, SWIFT, EDI, MIME, Acord, X12 • All protocols supported natively Web Services PLUS MQ, JMS, File, SCADA device, user defined… • Minimizes need for adapters Improves performance and manageability Building an Advanced ESB for SOA with WebSphere Message Broker Version 6

    • IBM Software Group Eventing – Message Broker event nodes Message Broker provides a rich set of event nodes. Publish Subscribe Timer Complex Event Processing Building an Advanced ESB for SOA with WebSphere Message Broker Version 6
    • IBM Software Group Complex Event Processing - What is it? Active Systems are systems that contain active (event-driven) components • Reactive Systems – React to something that happens in the system (server failed, direct requests to other servers) • Proactive Systems – Use predictive methods to redirect the system towards better results and or eliminate problems (server utilization is high, direct request to other servers) Processing of action triggered not by a single event, but by a complex composition of events, happening at different times, and within different contexts Examples: compliance checks, fraud detection, monitoring of service level agreements, etc Building an Advanced ESB for SOA with WebSphere Message Broker Version 6
    • IBM Software Group Complex Event Processing Nodes SituationManager Node Detected situations result in message being Detected Situations written to queue IBM stock gained 3% and NASDAQ lost 1% within the last hour IntelligentFilter Node Detected situations result in alternate path through messageflow Route messages to a compliance officer if a client performs more than a certain number of messages that cause a credit breach in one day Building an Advanced ESB for SOA with WebSphere Message Broker Version 6
    • IBM Software Group Security Considerations for an ESB Can secure the link between the service and ESB • Transport protocol security, e.g. SSL All security cannot be done in ESB • Co-operation from the protocol / transport • Extreme is that none of the security is handled within the ESB ESB needs to “see” relevant data to perform routing and transformation • Security versus flexibility Building an Advanced ESB for SOA with WebSphere Message Broker Version 6
    • IBM Software Group Performance Considerations for an ESB Flexibility AND performance are metrics of success • ESB can affect latency, possibly throughput Partial parsing for efficient routing and transformation of large messages • Only parse as much as necessary 50% average throughput improvement for Message Broker v6 • Same flows, etc. Important to use performance enhancing features where possible • In-memory caches • Queues, rather than databases, for transient data Building an Advanced ESB for SOA with WebSphere Message Broker Version 6
    • IBM Software Group Summary ESB is an important infrastructure component for SOA • Protocols, Routing, Transformation, Eventing WebSphere MQ and Message Broker form Advanced ESB • Integrate standard and non-standards-based applications and services Building an Advanced ESB for SOA with WebSphere Message Broker Version 6

    • IBM Software Group SOA Lifecycle - Monitor Monitor ESB connectivity layer • Monitor Flows, Execution Groups, Brokers Application monitoring is outside scope of ESB • Need integrated monitoring tools • This cannot be delivered by individual products SOA based monitoring tools e.g. ITCAM for SOA End to end tracking becoming increasingly important • Correlation between messages through Application and infrastructure • Message Broker V6 Message Flow tracking feature Monitoring tools enabled • Tools to consolidate across enterprise wide interactions Building an Advanced ESB for SOA with WebSphere Message Broker Version 6
    • IBM Software Group SOA Lifecycle – Monitor ESB Building an Advanced ESB for SOA with WebSphere Message Broker Version 6
    • IBM Software Group Monitoring – the wider picture As SOA’s get deployed you need to see all of the “bits” using one view, you don’t have time to hop from monitor to monitor when your business is effectively stopped. You have to implement things such as ITIL service desk functions to restore normal operations as soon as possible – using tools such as ITM 6.1 and OMEGAMON Reflex Automation. You will have to integrate components into your infrastructure that do not have traditional monitors – Tivoli’s UA Technology can build these and interface directly into the TEP (Tivoli Enterprise Portal). As Z Series continues to grow it hosts the major components of SOA’s – DB2, CICS, WMQ, Broker, WAS, WPS, ESB Business users will want to charge for Services – which means SLA’s and SLA compliance and Business Views – “How many widgets did we sell today ?” – not how is CICS response time.
