Pattern-type (Part 22): Create a component which doesn’t generate a VM.
In the previous article (here), I explained how to create a component that generates one or more VMs. In this one, I will explain a method to create a component which doesn’t generate VM but interacts with another one via a link. You can find a use case of this in the WebApp pattern where you are able to add extra “archive file” to a WAS via the “Extra Archive File” component. Continue reading
Pattern-type (Part 21): How to call a java method from your topology template
In this article, I will explain how to call a java method from your topology template. This is achieved by creating a class which extends the TemplateTransformer class and declaring it as the implementation class for your topology transformer. Continue reading
Run mobile workloads using IBM Worklight and Zend PHP on the cloud
IBM SmartCloud Application Services provides a mobile application platform using IBM Worklight. We also have the Zend Server Pattern on IBM SmartCloud Application Services and created a proof of concept leveraging these different technologies.

Redbook: Creating Composite Application Pattern Models for IBM PureApplication System
On top of the education series I created (here) you can download a very useful redbook (here) which explains the different concepts and features of the PureApplication System deployment engine which is in fact an IWD software appliance. Continue reading
Pattern-type (Part 20): Parametrize a plugin
Sometime, you would like to parametrize a plugin for example to add an activation key or other configuration parameters. The configuration will be done via the “System Plug-ins” menu. Continue reading
Pattern-type (Part 19): internationalization and localization of Pattern-type
When you create a new plugin, you could have noticed that a “locales” directory is created by the plug-in project wizard in the appmodel directory. This directory can contains the messages in different languages. Here how it works. Continue reading
Using PDK 184.108.40.206 on SmartCloud Application Workload Service
I tested the new version PDK 220.127.116.11 on SmartCloud Application Workload Service which run IWD 18.104.22.168.
Normally, the PDK 22.214.171.124 is compatible with IWD 126.96.36.199 but I didn’t face any issue while using it. Continue reading
Pattern-type (Part 18): Create multiple VMs for the same component

I don’t want to bother the pattern designer with some extra rules and tell him “if you define this policy you absolutely need to add an extra VM in order to manage this policy”. Continue reading
