Does ALE work on RAM running on WAS Express?

Gordon Flood (25147) | asked Jan 02 '13, 2:49 p.m.

Can an ALE synch connection be setup to synchronize WSRR 8.x and RAM 7.5.1 if RAM is running on the bundled WAS Express edition (as opposed to a full WAS 7.x version). or does RAM ALE WSRR sychroniization require a full WAS instance?

A folow up question is, if ALE can be set up using RAM on WAS Express, can the connecion be made secure simply by the exchange of certs into eachothers trust stores, or is Single Sign On using LTPA keys required for a secure connnection?  (LTPA Single Sign On would seem to be incompatible with RAM on WAS Express because WAS Express is not cell-aware?)

In summary, the most essential question here is: can RAM on WAS Express synchronize with WSRR via secure connection?

WSRR and RAM do not have to run on the same WAS instance ... so you can use RAM on express and WSRR on another WAS instance.  They communicate using their configured urls with http ... if it is https, it will be secure.

ALE is a WebSphere bundle of RAM and WSRR ... They do not have ALE v8.... but WSRR v8 should be compatible with RAM 7.5.1 as they note in their pubs.

Excellent, thank you!

We were wondering if our ALE synch problems were being cause by running RAM on WAS Express (and WSRR on WAS ND), but will now look elsewhere for the source of the problem.
