'New' Best Practice for SOA/ESB?
- Use WebSphere Process Server as much as possible, and WebSphere ESB as little as possible.
Process Server provides a layer to implement a business process - this is (or should be, or could be) ‘interesting’ to a business. ESB simply provides the glue to tie things together - auditing, converting one interface to another, etc. So don’t fall into the trap of faking Process Server functionality in ESB, when Process Server provides it all already.
