This course is also available as self-paced virtual (e-learning) course IBM App Connect Enterprise V11 Application Development (ZM668G). This option does not require any travel.
IBM App Connect Enterprise provides connectivity and universal data transformation in heterogeneous IT environments. It enables businesses of any size to eliminate point-to-point connections and batch processing, regardless of operating system, protocol, and data format.
This course teaches you how to use IBM App Connect Enterprise to develop, deploy, and support message flow applications. These applications use various messaging topologies to transport messages between service requesters and service providers, and allow the messages to be routed, transformed, and enriched during processing.
In this course, you learn how to construct applications to transport and transform data. The course explores how to control the flow of data by using various processing nodes, and how to use databases and maps to transform and enrich data during processing. You also learn how to construct data models by using the Data Format Description Language (DFDL).
This course is designed for experienced integration specialists and senior-level developers with experience in application development, messaging middleware applications, and transport protocols such as HTTP and FTP.
Before taking this course, you should have:• A basic understanding of current IT technologies such as Structured Query Language (SQL), Extensible Markup Language (XML), Java, and XML Path language (XPath)• A familiarity with the Eclipse development environment• A basic understanding of transport protocols such as HTTP and FTP, and message-oriented middleware such as Java Message Service (JMS) and IBM MQ
