How to Configure and Use Integration Broker

Integration Broker has become a critical service for PeopleSoft applications. If you are new to Integration Broker or are having trouble with Integration Broker configuration, then take a look at this new Integration Broker course published by my friends at CGI consulting. The course consists of an 84 page instructional PDF and a couple of source files. The course covers everything from configuration to using SoapUI. Here are some highlights:

  • Setting up Integration Broker
  • Publishing a CI based service
  • Testing a web service (CI or otherwise) with SoapUI
  • Calling a service from PeopleCode
  • Application Class PeopleCode handlers
  • Routing transformations
  • JDeveloper XSLT Mapper
  • App Engine Service Operation handlers
  • And much, much more

One item I noticed that is NOT covered is creating custom listeners and targets using the Integration Broker SDK. Not to worry, though because I cover creating custom targets in my book PeopleTools Tips & Techniques.

The CGI Integration Broker course is a great read. I recommend downloading and saving a copy for future reference.
