IBM WebSphere Adapters V6.0 introduces new adapters based on
open standards

New WebSphere Adapters

WebSphere Adapters V6.0 introduces new adapters based on open standards. These adapters implement
the J2EE Connector Architecture (JCA) 1.5 specificat
ion, and they exploit the Enterprise Metadata
Discovery (EMD) specification for wizard
-
driven configuration and the Service Data Objects (SDO)
specification for exchanging data. The adapters support WebSphere Process Server

V6.0 and WebSphere
Integration D
eveloper V6.0.

The JCA 1.5 specification, an enhanced feature of J2EE

1.4, provides a solid runtime foundation upon
which to deliver adapters. JCA 1.5 introduces the bidirectional exchange of business data and specifies
enhanced quality of service feature
s required to address the needs of mission
-
critical adapter deployments.

The EMD specification addresses the need for rich, standardized tooling interfaces for JCA adapters to
easily service
-
enable applications without Java coding. WebSphere Integration D
eveloper provides a
wizard which leverages EMD to interact with the WebSphere Adapters during configuration to discover
the services provided by the application, to import a metadata description of selected services, and to
generate the artifacts required
for an integration solution to interact with the application services through
the adapter. To facilitate the exchange of business data in support of a service
-
oriented architecture, the
WebSphere Adapters use SDOs as outlined by the EMD specification.

WebSphere Process Server V6.0 and WebSphere Integration Developer V6.0
introduce Service
Component Architecture (SCA) to facilitate the assembly of solution components in a service
-
oriented
architecture. SCA is fully integrated with WebSphere Adapters as service components. WebSphere
Integration Developer leverages the EMD se
rvice descriptions provided by WebSphere Adapters to
generate the artifacts necessary for SCA to interact with the WebSphere Adapters.

Each offering, which includes a new WebSphere Adapter based on JCA, also includes the corresponding
WebSphere Business I
ntegration Adapter and its prerequisite WebSphere Business Integration Adapter
Framework. While the new WebSphere Adapters based on JCA support only WebSphere Process Server,
the corresponding WebSphere Business Integration Adapters provide support for the

full range of
integration servers, including WebSphere Process Server, WebSphere Business Integration Message
Broker, WebSphere InterChange Server, WebSphere Business Integration Server Foundation, and
WebSphere Information Integrator, among others. Users

requiring either or both adapters for use with any
of these integration servers need purchase only the new WebSphere Adapter offering.

Based on their particular requirements, WebSphere Process Server users may prefer the WebSphere
Adapters based on JCA.
The WebSphere Business Integration Adapters, included in the offerings, may be
preferred by WebSphere Process Server users who require additional function or a lightweight distributed
adapter runtime.

Where a new WebSphere Adapter offering is not availabl
e, users should continue to purchase the
WebSphere Business Integration Adapter which meets their requirements.

WebSphere Adapter for Flat Files V6.0
includes the following:



WebSphere Adapter for Flat Files V6.0



WebSphere Business Integration Adapter fo
r JText

V5.6



WebSphere Business Integration Adapter Framework

V2.6

The WebSphere Adapter for Flat Files enables integration with applications which provide a basic flat file
interface. This adapter can be used with applications which do not provide progr
ammable or service
interfaces, and for which integration at the data tier is impractical. This JCA resource adapter facilitates
the bi
-
directional exchange of any type of text or binary file, and provides the ability to write to new files,
append to or ove
rwrite existing files, poll a directory for new files to deliver to the server, retrieve target
files, list the files in a directory, and delete target files. The adapter implements EMD to facilitate the
generation of service descriptions and configuration

artifacts for the adapter.

Use WebSphere Business Integration Adapter for JText

V5.6 with WebSphere Process Server for File
Transfer Protocol (FTP) support and to leverage WebSphere Business Integration Data Handlers. This
adapter should also be used wit
h integration servers other than WebSphere Process Server.

includes the followi
ng:



WebSphere Adapter for JDBC V6.0



WebSphere Business Integration Adapter for JDBC

V2.6



WebSphere Business Integration Adapter Framework

V2.6

The WebSphere Adapter for JDBC enables object
-
oriented integration with applications through the data
tier. T
his adapter can be used with applications which provide specific interface logic within the data tier
or those that do not provide programmable or service interfaces. This JCA resource adapter integrates with
database management systems through the exchang
e of relational data including tables, views, and stored
procedures, and it provides comprehensive support for create, update, delete, and retrieve operations,
among others. The adapter also provides a polling event mechanism to detect and deliver events f
rom any
application based on a relational database. The adapter implements EMD to generate service descriptions
and configuration artifacts from database tables, views, and stored procedures. The adapter supports any
JDBC V2.0, or later driver for features

outlined in the adapter user guide.

Use WebSphere Business Integration Adapter for JDBC

V2.6 with integration servers other than
WebSphere Process Server.
