This IBM® RedpaperTM publication describes how to get started using WebSphere® Adapter for SAP Software with WebSphere Message Broker. These products enable processes and components to be integrated to include the exchange of information with an SAP server, without special coding. This paper shows how to use an adapter, an application component, to send requests to the SAP server or to receive events from the server. The adapter creates a standard interface to the applications and data on the SAP server so that the developer of the application component does not have to understand the lower level details (the implementation of the application or the data structures) on the SAP server.
The Preventive Maintenance Monthly is an official publication of the Army, providing information for all soldiers assigned to combat and combat duties. The magazine covers issues concerning maintenance, maintenance procedures and supply problems.
This IBM® Redbooks® publication illustrates implementation, testing, and helpful scenarios with IBM Power® Systems 780 and 795 using the comprehensive set of the Power virtualization features. We focus on the Power Systems functional improvements, in particular, highlighting the reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) features of the enterprise servers. This document highlights IBM Power Systems Enterprise Server features, such as system scalability, virtualization features, and logical partitioning among others. This book provides a documented deployment model for Power 780 and Power 795 within a virtualized environment, which allows clients to plan a foundation for exploiting and using the latest features of the IBM Power Systems Enterprise Servers. The target audience for this book includes technical professionals (IT consultants, technical support staff, IT Architects, and IT Specialists) responsible for providing IBM Power Systems solutions and support.
Modern-day projects require software and systems engineers to work together in realizing architectures of large and complex software-intensive systems. To date, the two have used their own tools and methods to deal with similar issues when it comes to the requirements, design, testing, maintenance, and evolution of these architectures. Software and Systems Architecture in Action explores practices that can be helpful in the development of architectures of large-scale systems in which software is a major component. Examining the synergies that exist between the disciplines of software and systems engineering, it presents concepts, techniques, and methods for creating and documenting architectures. The book describes an approach to architecture design that is driven from systemic quality attributes determined from both the business and technical goals of the system, rather than just its functional requirements. This architecture-centric design approach utilizes analytically derived patterns and tactics for quality attributes that inform the architect’s design choices and help shape the architecture of a given system. The book includes coverage of techniques used to assess the impact of architecture-centric design on the structural complexity of a system. After reading the book, you will understand how to create architectures of systems and assess their ability to meet the business goals of your organization. Ideal for anyone involved with large and complex software-intensive systems, the book details powerful methods for engaging the software and systems engineers on your team. The book is also suitable for use in undergraduate and graduate-level courses on software and systems architecture as it exposes students to the concepts and techniques used to create and manage architectures of software-intensive systems.
