WebSphere Unconference

Welcome to the WebSphere Unconference topic forum. You—the developer—set the agenda by submitting topics you would like to present, voting on other topics you would like to hear discussed, and/or offering to give a lightning talk (five minute speech) on a topic that interests you.

The ideas will be collected here until Impact 2012 opens on Sunday, April 29. From April 29-May 1, you can continue to submit and vote on ideas in person, onsite at the Unconference booth in the Impact Solution Center.

The Unconference will be held on Wednesday, May 2, from 1:30 pm – 5:30 pm. There will be a kick-off starting at 1:30 with special speakers including Grady Booch, Research Scientist and IBM Fellow; Andrew Glover, software developer, entrepreneur, blogger (Disco Blog) and author; Greg Truty, IBM Distinguished Engineer, Application and Integration Middleware Software; and more.

The agenda is yours!

To get started, browse the hot or new idea topics tab below, or choose a category from the list on the right. Then search to see if your idea has already been submitted. If it has not, submit it for others to consider and vote up.

If you want to present a 5 minute lightning talk, enter that below too. End your post with the word “Lightning”. If you get enough votes, you give the talk!

Additionally, publish a blog post on the Global WebSphere Community site about your Unconference topic idea by Feb 29 and you will be entered into a drawing to win a complimentary Impact 2012 pass. Just submit your topic here and then go to your GWC Account (or register one for free) and blog about your Unconference topic idea.

Note: Employees of IBM; UCG; and national, state, or local governments of any country are not eligible to win. Refer to instructions on how to blog on the GWC if needed.

See you in Vegas!

What topic or idea would you like to discuss / present

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Using IBM BPM Lombardi only as a Process Managment System

    What if Lombardi is not enough to fully cover our problems? For example, we must to provide rich user interface (based on gwt, vaadin, jsf and so on), or, in our processes uses very complex data which leads to poor performance.
    In this case, we can create our enterprise application, and inside it, we can use Lombardi in the backend. But which Lombardi API should we use to achieve that purpose? Rest API, webApi?
    A classic architecture of enterprise application consists of three major layers: presentation, business logic and integration (persistence). So, in business logic we should operate with Lombardi…

          • How about events, rules and process share the same datamodel to enable intrinsic interoperability & communicate via java in WAS 9?

            How about events, rules and process share the same datamodel to enable intrinsic interoperability & communicate via java layer rather than through webservice layer atleast from WAS 9 onwards. This gives the real power of technology bundling and provide best performance. Please comment
