In this course, you learn how to construct applications to transport and transform data. The course explores how to control the flow of data by using various processing nodes, and how to use databases and maps to transform and enrich data during processing. You also learn how to construct data models by using the Data Format Description Language (DFDL).
Who should attend
This course is designed for experienced integration specialists and senior-level developers with experience in application development, messaging middleware applications, and transport protocols such as HTTP and FTP.
Before taking this course, you should have:• A basic understanding of current IT technologies such as Structured Query Language (SQL), Extensible Markup Language (XML), Java, and XML Path language (XPath)• A familiarity with the Eclipse development environment• A basic understanding of transport protocols such as HTTP and FTP, and message-oriented middleware such as Java Message Service (JMS) and IBM MQ
