TIBCO BusinessWorks? Container Edition has been out for long enough now to establish itself as a rising star in TIBCO's portfolio of products designed for the cloud. It is the go-to product for customers who either look to use TIBCO's integration software for the first time or love their on-premise TIBCO BusinessWorks instance and are now planning to shift their integration needs to the cloud. If these customers are also B2B users, their natural question is:
The answer is yes, of course. The connectivity bridge between TIBCO BusinessConnect and any TIBCO BusinessWorks installation is the TIBCO BusinessConnect Plugin for BusinessWorks. Most recently, our QA team conducted a comprehensive test to certify that the plugin works with TIBCO BusinessWorks Container Edition. Prerequisites:
- TIBCO BusinessWorks Container Edition runtime runs on either Pivotal CloudFoundry or Docker containers
- TIBCO BusinessConnect Plugin for BW runtime (a.k.a. the BWBC app) runs on the same CF or Docker container, too
- TIBCO Enterprise Messaging Service? is enabled as the messaging system for TIBCO BusinessConnect Plugin / TIBCO BusinessWorks Container Edition to process TIBCO BusinessConnect requests/responses
Ask your TIBCO solution or professional service consultant on the detail steps for a) how to create your BWCE docker image or CloudFoundry buildpack; b) how to deploy the TIBCO BusinessConnect Plugin runtime in CF or Docker alongside TIBCO BusinessWorks Container Edition; and c) enabling the use of TIBCO Enterprise Messaging Service for TIBCO BusinessConnect Plugin / TIBCO BusinessWorks Container Edition.
TIBCO BusinessConnect itself can run on-premise, or on AWS Cloud
