IBM App Connect Enterprise 12 Application Development II (WM687G)

Overview

This course provides instruction in using IBM App Connect Enterprise to connect to IBM MQ and reference databases. The first part of this course covers traditional use cases for IBM App Connect Enterprise including using App Connect Enterprise in conjunction with JMS, web services, and IBM MQ. The second half extends topics discussed in prior courses including using the Graphical Data Mapping editor to create a DFDL model and using ESQL in a Compute node. The course also covers referencing a database in a message flow application.

Audience

This course is designed for experienced integration specialists and senior-level developers with experience in application development and messaging middleware applications interested in becoming an IBM App Connect Enterprise Developer.
