With the IBM Integration Bus V9 Application Development I (WM665G) course, you will learn how to use IBM Integration Bus to develop, deploy and support platform-independent message flow applications. These applications use various messaging topologies to transport messages between service requesters and service providers, and also allow the messages to be routed, transformed and enriched during the processing. The course explores message flow problem determination, with an emphasis on identifying and recovering from errors in the IBM Graphical Data Mapping editor to transform messages.
The course also explores how to control the flow of messages during the processing, You will review various messaging transports at a high-level and gain a basic understanding of how message flows can use web services, Java Message Service (JMS), and other transport mechanisms. Finally, you will explore how to extend IBM Integration BUS by using adapters and other IBM products.
Throughout the course, hands-on lab exercises allow you to practice the skills and concepts that are presented in the lectures. The hands-on labs cover topics such as creating and testing message flows. message modelling, problem determination, and error handling.
