WID 6.2 is uninstalled. Long live WID 7.0

I wish I could move up to the latest version of IBM WebSphere Integration Developer (WID), which has changed its name to IBM Integration Designer in IBM Business Process Manager 7.5 Advanced. I’ll have to wait a little bit longer as one of my job assignments is to support clients and business partners who happen to be a bit lower in version due to many reasons. It then requires a bit of patience on my side before moving on to the cutting edge of a product.

With the certificate of IBM Certified Solution Developer – WebSphere Integration Developer V6.2 and many customers in Poland finally getting their feet wet with WID 7.0, I don’t think I’ll happen to have much chance to work with WID 6.2. That’s why today I decided to ditch WID 6.2 on my workstation and go up to 7.0.

As a matter of fact, I did it once before, but it was considered too fresh to most customers and only now are they moving one level up. And so have I.

The installation didn’t take long. It required to uninstall two fixes for WAS 7 with IBM Update Installer (it had to be installed separately), and ended up with a full-blown product ready for further study. Perhaps, one day, I’ll take a chance to pass the exams IBM Certified Integration Developer – WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus V7.0 and IBM Certified Integration Developer – WebSphere Process Server V7.0. It’s always been a boost for my knowledge and a little bit of confidence for my clients.

The About window greets me with a friendly invitation to give it a shoot. Soon.

Now on to ZB003 IBM WebSphere Lombardi Edition V7.1 Process Modeling and Implementation course. That’s what consumes much of my time.
