The following course is intended for those who are webMethods seekers / those who have plans to start their career in webMethods. The course covers the version 10.X and majority of the videos are recorded in version 10.11. Integration is categorized into 4 layers:-

  • ESB - Enterprise Service Bus

  • API Management

  • SOA Governance and

  • Messaging Broker

Each of these are itself a humungous topics. For example when we deal with Messaging Broker, webMethods have; webMethods Broker and Universal Messaging. When we deal with SOA Governance we have to cover the topics of CentraSite/Mediator. When we need to deal with Security/Policies/Runtime Management then we have to work on the webMethods API Management Tool and Mediator.

Considering all these factors, we know for sure irrespective of what, integration means Data Transformation from one format to another. And that falls under the layer of ESB. As an integration developer and also as an administrator, we need to know what is ESB and how to work with ESB. Do note: - ESB is just a concept, webMethods have incorporated ESB in it's own style. And for anyone who wants to start a career in Integration, I personally believe, ESB is the starting point, everyone should know how to deal with ESB. Once we are confident, then we move up the ladder. Henceforth, the following course is focused on the ESB layer only.
