Configuring the webMethods Broker transport

You can configure the webMethods Broker transport from the webMethods Broker resource in the Architecture School’s Physical View.

About this task

To configure a webMethods Broker transport:

Procedure

  1. In Architecture School’s Physical View, double-click the appropriate webMethods Broker resource.
  2. In the webMethods Broker window, on the Config tab, enter a name for the transport in the Name field (to help identify the transport when multiple webMethods Broker transports are available).

    The transport settings are managed on the Config tab, and are broken into basic settings, SSL settings, and advanced settings.

    Note: All of the configuration fields support the use of tags, which can be entered manually or by selecting them from the menu.
    Note: You can test the connection parameters at any time by clicking Test Transport.
  3. Configure the basic webMethods Broker settings on the Settings tab. The available configuration options are described in the following table:
    Server The server and port where webMethods Broker is running.
    Broker The name of the webMethods Broker (if left blank, "Broker" is used). "Broker #1" is the default in webMethods.
    Client Group The name of the client group for the webMethods Broker client.
    Client ID A string that contains a unique identifier for the webMethods Broker client to be used when you are disconnecting or reconnecting. If left blank, the broker generates a unique client identifier.
    App Name The name of the application that contains the webMethods Broker client. The default is "HCL OneTest™ API".
    Basic Authentication Identity The user name and password for authenticating the webMethods Broker client.
  4. Configure the settings that are used to connect to the server by using SSL on the SSL tab. The available configuration options are described in the following table:
    Use SSL Select this check box to use SSL for the connection to the server.
    Distinguished Name This name is the portion of a certificate that identifies either the owner of the certificate or the issuer of the certificate.
    Trust Store An existing HCL OneTest API Identity store, which is required by webMethods to be a JKS (JAVA Key Store) file. Once the JKS is added as an Identity Store, it can be selected from the combination list. The truststore contains certificates that are trusted by the client.
    Identity Store The client’s public key, which is combined with a certificate that identifies the client to the server. This key is required by webMethods to be a P12 file (Personal Information Exchange File). This file does not need to be added to HCL OneTest API, but it must be available at run time.
    Encrypt Traffic Select this check box to encrypt the communication between HCL OneTest API and the server. The encryption of the handshake is used for both encrypted and non-encrypted (enabled and disabled) communications. Disabling this option provides faster communication between HCL OneTest API and the server, but the connection is less secure.
  5. Configure advanced settings for connecting to a webMethods Broker on the Advanced tab. The available configuration options are described in the following table:
    Automatically reconnect if disconnected? Enables or disables the automatic reconnection feature for the Broker client's connection descriptor. If enabled, the Broker client that is associated with this descriptor will be automatically reconnected after the connection to the Broker is lost. This option is enabled by default.
    Share the broker connection with other broker clients? Enables or disables the sharing of this connection by multiple Broker clients. This option is disabled by default.
    Allow session state sharing? Enables or disables the sharing of the client state that is associated with this connection by multiple Broker clients. This option is disabled by default.
    Enforce broker event-ordering across shared sessions? Available only if the previous option is enabled, this option sets the shared event-ordering status for the Broker client's connection descriptor. If available, this option is enabled by default.
    Access Label Hint The access label hint for the Broker client's connection descriptor.
