Peers, it is time to embrace IBM’s Integration Bus v9 aka IIBv9. Many of us are comfortable developing solutions using WebSphere Message Broker [WMB] version 6, 7 and 8. To date, all the projects I’ve worked on at Perficient, clients still used WMB 6/7. However, IBM recently re-branded WMB as Integration Bus. Much of the changes and or improvements released in WMB version 8, were significantly updated and improved in IIBv9. Meaning, the word is out. Clients are looking to move away from WMB 6/7/8 and into IIBv9. Let’s get ahead of the migration wave and become the leaders of IIBv9 implementation. No sweat, the easiest way to do that is by informing ourselves.
According to IBM:
IBM® Integration Bus is designed to solve all integration requirements between back-end systems, from simple point-to-point connectivity to sophisticated topological patterns such as ESBs. It has a wide range of built-in connectors that enable integration between web services, files, databases, packaged applications such as SAP and Microsoft® Dynamics CRM, plus a variety of configuration and transformation options such as graphical mapping, Java™, and Microsoft .NET®.
