WebSphere Message Broker in Shared Runtime Environments

WebSphere Message Broker in Shared Runtime Environments

This session is a "lessons learned" about WebSphere Message Broker in shared runtime environments at various companies and the typical environment configurations and common set-ups with regards to high availability and workload balancing. What kind of solutions do we see implemented on top of message broker what are the demands for these solutions in terms of availability and isolation? How do we cater for these needs in a shared runtime environment? While there's going to be technical solutions highlighted in this session, we will also to a large extent take a look at the organization developing solutions targeting a shared runtime environment and how different organizations pose different requirements and challenges. This session will only cover WebSphere Message Broker on distributed platforms.

  32. Introducing DataPower TMM20: WebSphere Message Broker in Shared Runtime Environments

    WebSphere Technical Conference and Transaction & Messaging Technical Conference Barcelona, Spain, 2008 ICC Example - Customer Case 1 • Shared Services ICC ~10 headcount  Architects and managers Operations as a separate entity  ~4 headcount ~4 projects on their way into the runtime •- Aims to provide assets and core ESB functionality •- Lack of presence in the projects themselves which cripples the establishment of patterns, practices etc
  33. Introducing DataPower TMM20: WebSphere Message Broker in Shared Runtime Environments

    WebSphere Technical Conference and Transaction & Messaging Technical Conference Barcelona, Spain, 2008 Typical central services ICC BU BU BU BU ICC Delivery (project / dev team) Operations Governance •- While small (<10 people) •- Easy re-use and tuning of both technology and processes (agility) •- Large (>10 people) •- The ICC starts requiring internal processes to function •- Re-use •- Becomes harder •- Introduces risk of ripple effect when changing a component •-“Easier” and more “safe” to DIY •- Risk of “integration spaghetti” within the ESB
  34. Introducing DataPower TMM20: WebSphere Message Broker in Shared Runtime Environments

    WebSphere Technical Conference and Transaction & Messaging Technical Conference Barcelona, Spain, 2008 Central services runtime • Used only by the ICC Central control within a closed team • Characteristics Central operations Used only by the ICC Central control within a closed team • Key things Message tracing/tracking Development guidelines/re-use/patterns •- When something goes wrong everybody points to the middle(ware) •- Track and trace to quickly be able to tell where a message is
