In this Definitive Tip, we are going to look at the ability to use Versioning on Integrations to seamlessly deploy update integrations is an important requirement of any enterprise integration platform.
ICS supports the model of semantic versioning, perhaps better recognised as versioning as Major, Minor and patch. Which is best described at http://semver.org/.
This post will demo a minor and then a major version change. So we can see how change as the behaviours change between the two. A major change indicates an likely change in definition and minor one reflects logical change.
Seeing Versioning in Action
To demonstrate versioning we need an integration that is currently active. Ideally, you will have some sort of data feed or test framework, such as SoapUI or even a simple cURL script regularly triggering the integration. We need this script running to demonstrate the impact of the cutover.
