IBM WebSphere ESB provides an Enterprise Service Bus for IT environments built on open standards, SOA, messaging and Web services technologies of WebSphere Application Server. WebSphere ESB is a Java centric ESB that has strong integration with Web services-based connectivity and service-oriented integration. WebSphere ESB inherits the high availability and failover capability of the WebSphere Application Server, Network Deployment edition.

IBM has discontinued this product and has provided transitional licensing for existing customers to migrate to IBM WebSphere Message Broker.[1]

WebSphere ESB supports a wide variety of protocols such as JMS, MQ, EJB, Web Services, REST, HTTP etc. Formats that are supported include XML, Text, delimited, COBOL, etc. The development workbench for creating mediation flow in WebSphere ESB is called WebSphere Integration Developer. WebSphere Integration Developer builds on top of an Eclipse workbench. You can develop the mediation flows with the graphical editor by dragging and dropping primitive nodes. WebSphere ESB has many built-in nodes that support different types of operation such as data transformation, routing, filtering, database lookup, endpoint lookup, etc. You can perform all the development, unit testing and debugging in the WebSphere Integration Developer workbench. It contains a complete unit test environment which is a real WebSphere ESB runtime server.

WebSphere ESB Registry Edition provides both the ESB function and the service registry and repository function.
