In this 5-day, instructor-led course, you learn the fundamental skills that are required to implement IBM WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliances with firmware version 5.0.
The IBM WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliances allow an enterprise to simplify, accelerate, and enhance the security capabilities of its Extensible Markup Language (XML) and web services deployments, and extend the capabilities of its service-oriented architecture (SOA) infrastructure.
Through a combination of instructor-led lectures and hands-on lab exercises, you learn how to implement the key use cases for the DataPower appliances. These include XML acceleration and threat protection, web service virtualization, web services security, integrating with IBM WebSphere MQ and WebSphere Java Message Service (JMS), and authentication, authorization, and auditing (AAA). You also learn how to use various problem determination tools such as logs, monitors, and probes, as well as techniques for testing DataPower services and handling errors.
Hands-on exercises give you experience working directly with an IBM WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliance. The exercises focus on skills such as creating XML firewalls, working with encryption and cryptographic objects, configuring service level monitoring, troubleshooting services, and handling errors.
The lab environment for this course uses the Linux platform within a VMware image.
This basic course is designed for integration developers who configure service policies on IBM WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliances.
