Configuring for the Interoperability Test Service

About this task

To test a DataPower map on a WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliance from the Map Designer, you must configure the connectivity settings for the Interoperability Test Service in the Map Designer. The host name or IP address, and a port number for the DataPower appliance are required. The connection is established using HyperText Transport Protocol (HTTP), which is the default connection type, or HyperText Transport Protocol Secure (HTTPS).

You can change default Map Designer settings pertaining to connectivity for the Interoperability Test Service in the DataPower preferences.

To configure a connection to the appliance for the Interoperability Test Service using HTTP in the Map Designer:

Procedure

  1. In the Map Designer, click Window > Preferences > Transformation Extender > Map > DataPower. The DataPower preferences pane opens.
  2. Under Connectivity, enter the IP address or the host name for the DataPower appliance in the Host field. (For IPv6, enclose the IP address in brackets.)

    The default value is localhost.

  3. Click the Interoperability Test Service tab.
  4. Enter a value for the Port field. The default port for the HTTP Service is 9990. If you are using HTTPS, you must enter a different value for the Port field. See the topic about configuring an HTTPS connection.
  5. Click OK to save changes.
