Tibco BusinessWorks

TIBCO BusinessWorks provides a graphical user interface, with which IT personnel can establish
connections between applications and process definitions, transforms data across these interfaces, and
a process automation engine that can perform the tasks in the required sequence.

TIBCO BusinessWorks aims to lower IT costs and reduce implementation time by providing a
Graphical User Interface (GUI) that lets administrators modify and establish interfaces by configuring
them instead of with more time-consuming and error prone coding.

TIBCO BusinessWorks supports JMS, HTTP, FTP, SMTP, JDBC, Web Services and SOAP, XML
parsing and rendering capabilities among other standards.

Tibco BusinessWorks
Tibco InConcert
TIBCO InConcert is used for workflow automation. It can work seamlessly with other TIBCO products.
Once you define your workflow in InConcert, the workflow can be easily tracked, monitored and
controlled by using the InConcert client or from other applications.

TIBCO InConcert is used to manage long-lived and dynamic processes that involve both human and
automated tasks. It also provides a comprehensive reporting mechanism.

For example:

- Telecoms use InConcert for provisioning.
- Financial companies use InConcert for trading compliance.
- Retail vendors use InConert for order fulfillment.

Tibco - EAI Solution
Tibco - EAI Solution

TIBCO realizes that legacy methods of integration will continue to exist either because they meet
current business needs or because they are difficult to replace.

TIBCO EAI solutions provide interfaces for exchanging information with leading technologies such as
COM, CORBA, MQSeries, CICS, and IMS, and with implementations of JMS from other vendors.

TIBCO EAI solutions increase the flexibility of networks using a unique architecture that connects each
application to the integration platform through a single point of contact called an adapter. Any
application or system connected to the integration platform is automatically connected to every other
connected application or system.

TIBCO EAI solutions route information by subject name as opposed to addressing it to recipient
applications or individuals. New applications can instantly begin publishing and receiving information to
communicate with the other applications and systems in the enterprise. Information can also be
dynamically routed based on content.

TIBCO EAI solutions automatically transform information as it moves across the network resolving
incompatibilities so each system can send and receive information in its native format. TIBCO EAI
solutions support a wide range of input/output options including HTTP, FTP, SMTP, database and flat
files, XML and SWIFT, and any data format using Java-based plug-ins.

Tibco Adapters

TIBCO Adapters enable the integration of applications using a simple configuration GUI instead of by
hard-coding connections.

TIBCO Oracle ADB Adapter enables importing and exporting of data from Oracle database in real
time with other applications and databases. Available messaging types include request/reply,
publish/subscribe, and publish/reply interactions.

The TIBCO Adapter SDK promotes rapid development and ensures that adapters built using it have
the same external interface and that they plug into the overall TIBCO ActiveEnterprise product suite in
a consistent manner.
A set of reusable components that aids in rapid development of your custom adapter, with few constraints placed
on the development process.
Consistent external interface to adapters and applications built using the SDK.
Consistent configuration data and metadata representation through the TIBCO Designer tool.

Source Table Publishing Table
Publish by Reference

Publish table has a key field referring to Source Table. ADB establishes joins between
Publisher / Source Tables and then Publishes messages

Publish By Value

Data is physically copied from Source Table to Publish Table using trigger. ADP Publishes by
polling from Publish Table

Tibco - Messaging
Enterprise Messaging Service
TIBCO Enterprise Messaging Service provides full support for Suns Java Messaging Service
1.1 specification. The Java Message Service (JMS) API is a messaging standard that allows
application components based on the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) to create,
send, receive, and read messages. It enables distributed communication that is loosely coupled,
reliable, and asynchronous.
TIBCO is a leading provider of high performance messaging software. It scales well in its ability
to handle large traffic and deliver information to very large numbers of recipients, and also
proves to be robust by providing guaranteed delivery of data.

Tibco Rendezvous (RV)
An RV message is simply a message that traverses the wire using TIBCO's proprietary TRDP
protocol (at a high level), which is really UDP (at a lower level - and only most of the time, as
messages published to inbox addresses traverse the wire using TCP).
RVD Shields applications from network details
RVD uses a combination of UDP and TCP
The Information Bus (TIB) is Virtual and created when RVDs communicate
RVD uses existing network
The Enterprise Backbone
Tibco Rendezvous (Ron-De-Voo)



UDP = User Datagram Protocol, RVD = Rendezvous Daemon, TCP = Transport Protocol

The data is transferred using SUBJECT BASED ADDRESSING on a Transport Protocol

Service Default 7500 (UDP Port Number),
Network Default Broadcast or Multicast Group or Network Interface
Daemon RVD Daemon

E.g.. Service = 8301, Network =, Daemon = TCPi.7500

Tibco Rendezvous (Ron-De-Voo)

RV Certified Message
Certified messaging adds a persistent ledger that guarantees delivery over network outages and
The CM ledger is file based for persistence or memory based for speed.
CM is configured within the RV API
RV Reliable
Utilizes the TRDP networking layer
Adds Reliability
Keeps a copy of the message packets in a memory based buffer for 60 sec.
Re-transmits lost packets within that 60 second period upon negative acknowledgement
RV Request/Reply
Clients send a request message to a running server that is listening on a specified subject
The clients message contains a reply subject
The client subscribes to the reply subject before the request message is sent to the server
When the clients reply is returned, a communication loop is completed
RV Point-To-Point
The -INBOX is a unique subject name made by its RVD that only this client can subscribe to
When using the SendRequest() call RVD
Makes and Subscribes to the -INBOX, Handles the returning messages, Cancels the -INBOX subscription

Tibco Hawk Monitor
HAWK Monitor

TIBCO Hawk is a sophisticated tool for monitoring and managing distributed applications and systems throughout the
enterprise. With Hawk, system administrators can monitor application parameters, behavior, and loading activities for all
nodes in a local or wide-area network and take action when pre-defined conditions occur. In many cases, runtime failures
or slowdowns can be repaired automatically within seconds of their discovery, reducing unscheduled outages and
slowdowns of critical business systems.

Hawk can monitor any process which implements Application Monitoring Interface (AMI). For example, if you are writing
an application in JAVA or CPP, then you have to incorporate AMIs in the interfaces of your program you want to
monitor. Then those interfaces will be available to your Hawk. You can use them as the micro agent for your application.

The AMI API is great, but not required for simple monitoring. The worst case scenario is that you have to write the script
to do the application check. Hawk can monitor the output of the script, and do what is necessary.

High level overview of a TIBCO implementation by Zensar consultants for client Cisco

Figure 1. High-level view of the existing Learning Offering Creation Process (OCP)

1. The batch process is configured to run every x minutes to transfer fresh data from LCMS to EMS.
2. The batch process checks for any new updates in the LCMS database table. In case of new updates,
the batch process sends the data packet as a request to the SRB broker in XML over HTTP.
3. SRB routes the XML data packet to the target application EMS.

Case Study 2 :

CISCO Offering Clearing Process : Proposed Solution
The process had its challenges, quite typical to many enterprise integration initiatives
Non-real time exchange of information due to batch processing of jobs
Concerns over the scalability (ability to handle increase in traffic) of the integration broker that was developed
Synchronous only-nature of HTTP

Figure 2. High-level view of the Re-Architected Learning Offering Creation Process (OCP)
Case Study 2 :

CISCO Offering Clearing Process : Proposed Solution

LCMS, the source application, is configured to publish new updates into a TIBCO specific queue

The Oracle ADB Adapter immediately senses any updates on the queue table and publishes the
data packet in an XML format into Ciscos MMX bus (JMS).

The BusinessWorks process, modeled in a GUI interface by the application designers, picks up the
data packet from the MMX bus. A feature of the MMX bus is that it guarantees durability i.e. even if
the bus terminates for any reason, the messages are not lost but are persisted in the file system or
a database and are recovered when the bus is operational again.

A web service sub-process modeled in the BusinessWorks process makes a call to EMS, the target
application and sends the XML data package.
