As a certified IBM WebSphere specialist working for IBM Poland I work with the products that made up the book's title - IBM WebSphere Process Server and IBM WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus - helping clients to use it effectively. If they're troubled or stuck with an issue with these products that's the job I'm up for.
While preparing for the IBM Certified Solution Developer - WebSphere Integration Developer V6.2 and V7 certifications, I came across the book and after having glanced at its table of content I had no doubts to read it. And I'm glad I did, however some pitfalls showed up along the way.
Given that it's made up of over 500 pages it inevitably took me a while to fully comprehend its content. I marked many sections to come back later for more in-depth self-learning. There're many and that's why I found the book very helpful and informatory.
I always wanted to have a book I could suggest for learning the flagship products of IBM WebSphere BPM product family, and after those 500 pages I came to conclusion that there's none possible to come soon if ever as it would've contained more pages to become a comprehensive guide on the topic. The book "Application Development for IBM WebSphere Process Server 7 and Enterprise Service Bus 7" from Packt helped me to become more productive with the tools, but experience tells me there's way more to call it fully complete. Despite this, the book deserves its place on the bookshelf of any seasoned WebSphere BPM specialist.
Each chapter begins with a mindmap that introduces what's presented. Quite a few screenshots and links were for 6.2 that I found a bit annoying.
The 1st chapter introduces the concepts of IBM BPM and ESB. It does its job well. Even if I thought I knew about these concepts quite a lot I found the reading worthy. Figures, screenshots, images, a mindmap and different layout techniques made it a very pleasant activity.
The following chapter 2. was around 30 pages and was quite boring. I think it should not have been included in a book about application development.
The chapter 3. was definitely a worthy reading, but should've been divided to two chapters with the first one about theory and the other about practice.
The following chapters 4-6 were quite intensive on theory and practice. They're often too detailed and lengthy, and therefore a bit boring for unprepared readers.
The chapter 7. and on put more focus on the SFA sample application and further enhancing it with cross-cutting concerns like security, performance tuning and other non-development-centric aspects of building and later administering SOA and BPMS applications. The chapter 7. was so boring that I faced a great pain to finish it. I strongly advise not to read it.
The chapter 8. was not very technical. I'd recommend leaving it out if you're looking for technical material.
The chapter 9. contains too much non-technical details, often repeated to make the flow structured according to the given writing procedure. Many typos. Quite frankly, it was worth reading, but be prepared for a long, often boring one.
The chapter 10. changed the flow. It was very technical with many information known to me only in theory. I enjoyed it very much. A few typos didn't spoil its value.
The chapter 11. was very quick and easy. It was informative to the point of being a getting started document for Business Space novices. Very rudimentary material. Not sure what the purpose was since there was little to no information about developing applications with it.
The chapter 12. is more administrator-centric. Introductory for those interested in the administrative aspects of WPS/WESB.
The chapter 13.'s very light on programming and useful for monitoring and diagnosing application issues.
The appendix with tips and tricks was fine. I found many information I didn't know before.
Despite a few chapters I would not have included in the book and other, rather small deficiencies the book strives for well-thought-out presentation of application development with IBM WebSphere BPM tools and goes beyond a rudimentary material. This book goes a long way toward becoming a treasure trove of information about developing applications with IBM WebSphere Integration Developer V7 and its reading will undoubtedly help your efforts in mastering the tools at a higher level.
