- Identify Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) core components and their function in integration solution design.
- Apply the Service Component Architecture (SCA) programming model to an integration solution design.
- Organize modules into an effective project structure taking into consideration component reuse and application maintainability.
- Identify the relationship of WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus with related WebSphere products and other business process management products.
Section 2 - Connectivity and Integration (18%)
- Analyze connectivity requirements for integration solution designs.
- Create and maintain assembly diagrams with the Assembly Diagram Editor.
- Explain the role of technology and application adapters in an integration solution.
- Configure inbound and outbound adapter bindings.
- Configure import and export bindings (e.g., JMS, MQ, Web Services, HTTP) and Stand-alone References.
- Demonstrate usage of synchronous and asynchronous invocation patterns.
Section 3 - Component Development (44%)
- Describe the Service Message Object (SMO) structure.
- Perform business object design using the Business Object Editor.
- Perform interface design using the Interface Editor.
- Configure dependencies for modules and libraries using the Module Dependency Editor.
