IBM Process Server and WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus support a service-oriented architecture (SOA) by providing a platform for integrating business applications by using diverse technologies. IBM Process Center provides a scalable central repository and control center for organizing and managing process artifacts, applications, and services. IBM Process Server is a high-performance business process engine that orchestrates services within an SOA, and WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus enables interaction between applications and services by using standards-based connectivity.

In this course, you learn the concepts, architecture, components, processes, and procedures that are required to develop and implement an integrated business solution by using a diverse set of WebSphere and IBM products. You learn how WebSphere Java EE Connector Architecture (JCA) adapters supply connectivity to enterprise information systems (EIS). You learn how IBM Process Server enables business integration applications to define business logic and processes based on Web Services – Business Process Execution Language (WS-BPEL), human tasks, and business rules. You also learn how IBM Process Server uses the Common Event Infrastructure (CEI) to centralize the runtime monitoring of various events that occur in business integration solutions and applications.

The course also teaches you how to implement a reusable Coach View by using a Coach user interface, and then invoke it through a BPEL process. You then learn how to use IBM Process Portal to collaborate with others to participate in processes and complete their work efficiently. In addition, this course covers how WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus provides mediation services for integration applications.

In the intensive hands-on lab exercises, you design, develop, and test a comprehensive business integration solution. You use a standards-based process design tool, IBM Process Designer, as part of the authoring environment to rapidly compose a process design. You use the IBM Integration Designer tool to create business integration solutions by using the Service Component Architecture (SCA) programming model, the Service Data Objects (SDO) data model, and the mediation flow programming model. You then manage your processes in IBM Process Center and deploy the integration application to IBM Process Server. You also test and debug the application.

The sample test is designed to give the candidate an idea of the content and format of the questions that will be on the certification exam. Performance on the sample test is NOT an indicator of performance on the certification exam. This should not be considered an assessment tool.

To prepare for this test, it is first recommended that you are familiar with the job role description and the parameters this certification is based on, as well as have knowledge of the topics outlined in the test objectives/skills measured on the test. Compare your own technical level to the test objectives and the recommended training resources, and then determine for yourself how much preparation you require. Note that these educational sources are recommended, but not required (*) before taking a certification test.

Before preparing for the certification test, it is recommended that you measure your current level of skill by taking the Sample Test (located from the “Sample/Assessment test” link above)..

You can prepare for the test through the Tutor Approach (classroom, instructor led course, and other sources) or the Self-Study Approach. Sources within each approach collectively cover the skills measured on the test.

To prepare via the Tutor Approach, take courses [ WM645G or ZM645G ], and refer to the sources with an * in front of them. Note that per this formula, you are required to take only 1 course.

To prepare via the Self-Study Approach, omit the courses, and refer to all other sources with and without the * in front.

The recommended educational resources listed are not intended to be a substitute for, but should complement, relevant practical experience.
Extensive product knowledge is required to pass the test.
Every effort has been made to make the recommended educational resources as complete and as accurate as possible, but no warranty of fitness is implied. The resources provided are on an as is basis.
