Ben Bakowski, Chris Whyley and Matt Roberts have written a nice developerWorks article introducing WS-Notification in WebSphere Application Server Version 6.1. For once I’ve actually sat down myself and worked my way through it so I know it’s good! It illustrates the use of a publisher, asynchronous consumer and pull point for lightweight consumers, along with mixing WS-Notification and JMS. One thing to watch out for though: the authors have chosen to use scripting for the setup and pre-written applications which, although providing useful examples, means it’s easy to get to the end of the article without knowing what you’ve done if you don’t take the time to look at the content of the scripts and code.
