IBM Integration Bus is a compatible evolution of WebSphere Message Broker that is designed to incorporate features that are found in WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus. IBM Integration Bus provides a universal integration capability that addresses a wide range of integration scenarios. These scenarios include web services such as SOAP and REST, messaging, database, file, ERP systems, mobile, physical devices, email, custom systems and more.

You can use the WebSphere ESB conversion tool to import and convert mediation modules developed for WebSphere ESB in WebSphere Integration Developer or IBM Integration Designer.

Other considerations when moving to IBM Integration Bus

There are additional considerations when moving across from an existing WebSphere ESB deployment to IBM Integration Bus. These include:

  • Leveraging new capabilities within IBM Integration Bus. What is new in IBM Integration Bus for a WebSphere ESB user?
  • Handling differences in deployment of modules – IBM Integration Bus does not include an explicit “cluster” concept, but has a more flexible relationship between deployed modules and integration servers.
