The Datapower appliances support the use of the FTP protocols for message
transport. The purpose of this article is to present number of common use
case scenarios for FTP polling, illustrating correct configurations of the
device to support the use case.
The use case scenarios are as follows:
1- FTP Poller - polling files in one directory and transfer them to another
2- FTP Poller – polling files from FTP SERVER and forward them to another
3- FTP Poller (sFTP – FTP over SSL) - polling files from FTP SERVER and

used methods for such requests are either the POST or GET HTTP method.
1. For the testing purpose create a loopback pass-through XML Firewall.
2. Create a new Multi-Protocol Gateway with the following values
3. Create a HTTP Front side handler with the followin... (more)
The purpose of this article is to describe the steps involve to configure
Datapower service for the Database communication. The service will parse the
incoming parameters from the request, construct a SQL query string and
returns the data from the Database, based on the constructed query.
For the demonstration, the following table "DataPowerTest" is created in MS
SQL Server. The following columns and data were added as well.

from source portlet to target portlet without defining complex data type
inside WSDL file.
The term cooperative portlets refers to the capability of portlets on a page
to interact with each other by sharing information. One or more cooperative
portlets on a portal page can automatically react to changes from a source
portlet triggered by an action or event ... (more)
