IBM has released a Redbook draft titled “z/OS: WebSphere Business Process Management V6.1.2 Production Topologies”.   This book describes how to choose and configure a production topology for WebSphere Process Server for z/OS and WebSphere Business Services Fabric for z/OS.

Though this is a Redbook Draft, we at Peningo Systems strongly recommend this RedBook for any infrastructure architect, WebSphere Business Process Management Architect, WebSphere BPM Consultant,  or systems programmer who are looking to configure a production topology for WebSphere Process Server in an z/OS environment. Also since WebSphere Process Server for z/OS interfaces with DB2® for z/OS® and with a security manager such as RACF®, parts of this book will be relevant also to security administrators and to database administrators.

Please keep in mind that any IBM Redbooks- and Redpapers-in-progress, are published for those who need the information now. Since these are drafts, they may contain spelling, layout and grammatical errors. Also, the material in these drafts have not been submitted to any formal IBM test and is published AS IS. The use of this information or the implementation of any of these techniques is a customer responsibility and depends upon the customer's ability to evaluate and integrate them into the customer's operational environment.

The Table of Contents Consists of:

  • Chapter 1 BPM production topologies for z/OS   - Chapter 1 discusses BPM production topologies for z/OS.
  • Chapter 2. Configuring WebSphere Process Server for z/OS Network Deployment  - Chapter 2 which contains step-by-step instructions for configuring both a single-cluster topology and a two-cluster topology using WebSphere Process Server V6.1.2 for z/OS.
  • Chapter 3. Incorporating WebSphere Business Services Fabric into a production topology on z/OS  - Chaper 3 describes how to add WebSphere Business Services Fabric V6.1.2 for z/OS to your production topology and how to verify the installation.
  • Chapter 4. Troubleshooting WebSphere Process Server for z/OS - Finally in chapter 4 we have documented the symptoms of any problem we encountered together with its solution.
  • Appendix A. Additional material  - This book is accompanied by additional material that contains the spreadsheet that we used to plan our cell's topology, all the sample JCL we created, and also the shell scripts we created to simplify some of the manual steps.
