This course teaches you the developer skills that are required to configure WS-Security features and use WSDLs to generate web service proxy services on IBM DataPower Gateway V7.5.
The initial focus of DataPower was on XML and web services workloads, and it continues that support today. As part of that support, DataPower provides the ability to digitally sign and encrypt a message, validate a message’s signature, and decrypt an encrypted message. These functions are delivered as processing actions within the service policy. In this course, you learn about these message integrity and confidentiality capabilities, and practice using them in a lab exercise.
Web service operations typically work with WSDL files. DataPower generates a web service proxy directly from a WSDL, bypassing much of the basic configuration of a service to support that WSDL. This course also covers this service type of web service proxy, and gives you an opportunity to work with one in a lab exercise.
