This course teaches you the fundamental skills that are required to configure, implement, and troubleshoot services that are developed on the WebSphere DataPower Gateway Appliances with firmware version 7.0.x. The concepts in this course are also beneficial to system administrators of the DataPower appliance, although there is a separate course for administrators.


  • Describe how WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliances are configured
  • Create a web service proxy to virtualize web service applications
  • Implement web services security
  • Create and configure cryptographic objects
  • Configure Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to and from WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliances
  • Configure a multi-protocol gateway (MPGW) to handle multiple protocols for a single service
  • Configure a service level monitoring (SLM) policy to control message traffic
  • Configure support for IBM WebSphere MQ and WebSphere Java Message Service (JMS)
  • Use logs and probes to troubleshoot services
  • Configure the DataPower resources that are needed to support OAuth 2.0
  • Use patterns to define and deploy new services
  • Use DataPower resources and options to support REST and JSON-based services
  • Handle errors in service policies


This basic course is designed for integration developers who configure service policies on WebSphere DataPower Gateway Appliances .


Attendees at this course should be familiar with:

  • Security-based concepts and protocols
  • XML-related technologies such as XML schema, XPath, and XSLT
  • Web service fundamentals and the web services security specifications

You should also have successfully completed course “Technical Introduction to IBM WebSphere DataPower Gateway AppliancesV7 (VW700)”, to gain basic DataPower knowledge that you need for this course.
