A The PGM, PGM_UTL8, and PGM_SUP Packages

Use the Visual Workbench when developing applications that access WebSphere MQ through the gateway. The Visual Workbench defines an interface for accessing WebSphere MQ and automatically generates the PL/SQL code (the MIP) for Oracle applications to interface with the gateway. Refer to the Oracle Procedural Gateway Visual Workbench for WebSphere MQ Installation and User's Guide for Microsoft Windows (32-Bit) for more information about Visual Workbench.

The MIP uses definitions from the PGM, PGM_UTL8, and PGM_SUP packages. When necessary, you can alter the MIP to include WebSphere MQ functions that are not supported by Visual Workbench. This is done with the definitions and procedures from the PGM, and PGM_UTL8, and PGM_SUP packages.

The PGM, PGM_UTL8, and PGM_SUP packages are installed when the Visual Workbench repository or the OG4MQ deployment environment is created. For more information, refer to "Installing the Oracle Visual Workbench Repository" and "Preparing the Production Oracle Database".

This appendix discusses the PGM, PGM_UTL8, and PGM_SUP packages in the following sections:

A.1 PGM Package, OG4MQ Gateway Procedures, and Data Type Definitions

The gateway procedures and type definitions of the PGM package are modeled after the WebSphere MQ MQI calls. For all the relevant calls and structures found in MQI, a corresponding counterpart exists in PGM and the associated data type definitions exist in pgmobj.sql. The gateway procedures and PGM type definitions are named the same as their MQI counterparts. However, the data types of arguments or structure fields are changed into corresponding PL/SQL data types.

Using these procedures and type definitions in an Oracle application is very similar to writing a WebSphere MQ application. The fields of all PGM type definitions are initialized. These initialization values are based on default values defined by MQI.

The use of gateway procedures and PGM type definitions requires extensive knowledge of MQI and WebSphere MQ programming in general. These procedures and records follow the MQI flowchart, semantics, and syntax rules.

The PGM package is installed when the Visual Workbench repository or the OG4MQ deployment environment is created and is granted public access. It has no schema because the gateway omits all schema names when describing or running a procedure. No schema qualifiers need to be prefixed to the names of the procedures and type definitions.

See Also:

Refer to IBM MQSeries Application Programming Reference for complete information about writing WebSphere MQ applications and using MQI calls.

A.1.1 Summary of Procedures and Type Definitions

The gateway procedures and PGM provide the following procedures and type definitions:

Table A-1 Procedures and Type Definitions

Procedure Procedure Purpose Type Definitions Used by the Procedure

MQOPEN

Opens a queue.

PGM.MQOD and PGM.MQOH

MQPUT

Sends a message to the queue that was opened by MQOPEN

PGM.MQMD

PGM.MQOH

PGM.MQPMO

 

Sends a message longer than 32767 bytes to the queue

PGM.MQMD

PGM.MQOH

PGM.MQPMO

PGM.MQPUT_BFFER

MQGET

Retrieves or scans a message from the queue that was opened by MQOPEN

PGM.MQMD

PGM.MQOH

PGM.MQGMO

 

Sends a message longer than 32767 bytes to the queue

PGM.MQMD

PGM.MQOH

PGM.MQGMO

PGM.MQGET_BFFER

MQCLOSE

Closes the queue that was opened by MQOPEN

Does not use a type definition.


A.1.2 Procedure Conventions

The gateway procedures are described in alphabetic order in this appendix. The type definitions are described with the procedures that use them. Only type definition fields that can be changed are described. Other fields equivalent to MQI fields are left out because they are reserved for WebSphere MQ, are not supported by the gateway, or contain values that should not be changed.

A procedure's definition is shown using the IBM argument names associated with the equivalent MQI call. For example:

MQGET(hobj, mqmd, mqgmo, msg)

The syntax of the MQGET call is as follows:

MQGET(handle, descript, get_options, message);

where:

  • handle is your name for the first argument specified in the definition as hobj.

  • descript is your name for the second argument specified in the definition as mqmd.

  • get_options is your name for the third argument specified in the definition as mqgmo.

  • message is your name for the fourth argument specified in the definition as msg.

    You can use your own names for these arguments if you code the arguments in the order shown in the definition.

For more information about PL/SQL, refer to the Oracle Database PL/SQL Language Reference.

A.1.3 MQI Calls Performed by the Gateway

The following MQI calls have no equivalent procedures in the gateway because the Oracle database and the gateway automatically perform the functions of these MQI calls:

  • MQBACK

    Transaction control is handled by the Oracle transaction coordinator. The Oracle application does not need to invoke a separate MQBACK call to undo the changes sent to WebSphere MQ.

  • MQCONN

    A connection to a queue manager is established by the Oracle database and the gateway whenever an Oracle application refers to a gateway procedure. The database link name that is used when calling the gateway procedure determines which queue manager the gateway connects to.

  • MQCMIT

    Transaction control is handled by the Oracle transaction coordinator. An Oracle application does not need to invoke a separate MQCMIT call to commit the changes sent to WebSphere MQ.

  • MQDISC

    Connections to a queue manager are closed by the Oracle database and gateway. An Oracle application does not need to close the connection with the queue manager. Ending the current Oracle session or dropping the database link causes the queue manager connection to end.

A.1.4 Unsupported MQI Calls

The following MQI calls are not supported by the gateway:

  • MQINQ

  • MQPUT1

  • MQSET

A.1.5 Migration Tips

This section provides information about how to upgrade Oracle9i OG4MQ and existing customized PL/SQL application programs to use Oracle Database Gateway for WebSphere MQ features. OG4MQ data types and RPC API prototypes are changed to meet the requirements of the gateway infrastructure.

When upgrading OG4MQ to Oracle 10g release 2 or higher, Oracle recommends that you install the newer version of OG4MQ on a separate development Oracle system. After you have finished with system configuration and testing, transfer all of the COBOL copy books and regenerate and recompile MIPs using the Oracle Visual Workbench. For customized codes, make necessary changes and recompile.

Migrating OG4MQ Releases 8 and 9 PL/SQL Applications

To migrate OG4MQ releases 8 and 9 PL/SQL applications:

  1. In the PL/SQL declarative section, remove dblink references from the following OG4MQ data types:

    • PGM8.MQOD

    • PGM8.MQMD

    • PGM8.MQPMO

    • PGM8.MQGMO

    Then remove the following PGM8.MQ*RAW data types:

    • PGM8.MQODRAW

    • PGM8.MQMDRAW

    • PGM8.MQPMORAW

    • PGM8.MQGMORAW

  2. In the PL/SQL declarative section, change the data type of the handle of the queue, the third argument of PGM.MQOPEN, from BINARY_INTEGER to PGM.MQOH and replace the package name PGM8 with PGM.

    Change the data type of the handles of the queue, the third argument of PGM.MQOPEN, from BINARY_INTEGER to PGM.MQOH.

    For example, for version 8 and 9 change the following data types to those listed for Oracle 10g:

    objdesc    PGM8.MQOD;
    msgdesc    PGM8.MQMD;
    putmsgopts PGM8.MQPMO;
    getmsgopts PGM8.MQGMO;
    hobj       BINARY_INTEGER;
    mqodRaw    PGM8.MQODRAW;
    mqmdRaw    PGM8.MQMDRAW;
    mqpmoRaw   PGM8.MQPMORAW;
    mqgmoRaw   PGM8.MQGMORAW;
    

    The data types for Oracle 10g release 2 and higher:

    objdesc     PGM.MQOD;
    msgdesc     PGM.MQMD;
    putmsgopts  PGM.MQPMO;
    getmsgopts  PGM.MQGMO;
    hobj        PGM.MQOH;
    
  3. In the PL/SQL executable section, remove dblink references from the following OG4MQ procedures:

    PGM8.MQOPEN@dblink()
    PGM8.MQPUT@dblink()
    PGM8.MQGET@dblink()
    PGM8.MQCLOSE@dblink()
    

    Then define the dblink in the new PGM.MQOD type where the object queue name is defined.

    For example, for version 8 and 9:

    objdesc.objectname := 'QUEUE1';
    

    For Oracle 10g release 2 and higher:

    objdesc.objectname := 'QUEUE1';
    objdesc.dblinkname := 'dblink';
    
  4. If necessary, change the package name PGM8 of all OG4MQ procedures to PGM.

    For example, for version 8 and 9:

    PGM8.MQOPEN@dblink();
    PGM8.MQPUT@dblink();
    PGM8.MQGET@dblink();
    PGM8.MQCLOSE@dblink();
    

    For Oracle 10g release 2 and higher:

    PGM.MQOPEN;
    PGM.MQPUT;
    PGM.MQGET;
    PGM.MQCLOSE;
    
  5. In the PL/SQL executable section, remove all statements starting with PGM_UTL8.RAW_TO_*, remove all PGM_UTL8.TO_RAW statements, and replace all references to the MQ*RAW data types with their matching MQ* data types in the following OG4MQ procedures:

    • PGM.MQOPEN;

    • PGM.MQPU;

    • PGM.MQGET;

    • PGM.MQCLOSE;

    For example, for versions 8 and 9:

    mqodRaw := PGM_UTL8.TO_RAW(objdesc);
    PGM8.MQOPEN@dblink(mqodRaw, options, hobj);
    objdesc := PGM_UTL8.RAW_TO_MQMD(mqodRaw);
    mqmdRaw := PGM_UTL8.TO_RAW(msgdesc);
    mqpmoRaw := PGM_UTL8.TO_RAW(putmsgopts);
    PGM8.MQPUT@dblink(hobj, mqmdRaw, mqpmoRaw, putbuffer);
    putmsgopts := PGM_UTL8.RAW_TO_MQPMO(mqpmoRaw);
    msgdesc := PGM_UTL8.RAW_TO_MQMD(mqmdRaw);
    
    mqmdRaw := PGM_UTL8.TO_RAW(msgdesc);
    mqgmoRaw := PGM_UTL8.TO_RAW(getmsgopts);
    PGM8.MQGET@dblink(hobj, mqmdRaw, mqgmoRaw, putbuffer);
    getmsgopts := PGM_UTL8.RAW_TO_MQGMO(mqgmoRaw);
    msgdesc := PGM_UTL8.RAW_TO_MQMD(mqmdRaw);
    

    For Oracle 10g release 2 and higher:

    PGM.MQOPEN(objdesc, options, hobj);
    PGM.MQPUT(hobj, msgdesc, putmsgopts, putbuffer);
    PGM.MQGET(hobj, msgdesc, getmsgopts, getbuffer);
    
  6. In PL/SQL executable section, remove all statements that reference the old MQ*RAW data types.

Migrating OG4MQ Release 4.0.1.*.* PL/SQL Applications

To migrate applications:

  1. In the PL/SQL declarative section, remove dblink references from the following OG4MQ data types:

    • PGM.MQOD

    • PGM.MQMD

    • PGM.MQPMO

    • PGM.MQGMO

  2. In the PL/SQL executable section, remove dblink references from the following OG4MQ procedures and define the dblink in the new PGM.MQOD object where the object queue name is defined:

    • PGM.MQOPEN@dblink()

    • PGM.MQPUT@dblink()

    • PGM.MQGET@dblink()

    • PGM.MQCLOSE@dblink()

    For example, for version 4:

    PGM.MQOPEN@dblink(objdesc, options, hobj);
    objdesc.objectname :='QUEUE1';
    PGM.MQPUT@dblink(hobj, msgdesc, putmsgopts, putbuffer);
    PGM.MQGET@dblink(hobj, msgdesc, getmsgopts, putbuffer);
    PGM.MQCLOSE@dblink(hobj, options);
    

A.2 MQCLOSE Procedure

MQCLOSE closes a queue. On return, the queue handle is invalid and your application must reopen the queue with another call to MQOPEN before issuing another MQPUT, MQGET, or MQCLOSE call to the queue.

MQCLOSE differs from MQI calls in the following ways:

Definition

MQCLOSE(hobj, options)

where:

You can use your own variable names when arguments are in the required order as follows:

MQCLOSE(handle, close_options);

A.3 MQGET Procedure

MQGET retrieves a message from a queue. The queue must already be open from a previous call to MQOPEN with the PGM_SUP.MQOO_INPUT_AS_Q_DEF (or an equivalent option) option set. Retrieved messages for this form of MQGET must be shorter than 32767 bytes.

MQGET differs from MQI calls in the following ways:

Definition

MQGET(hobj, mqmd, mqgmo, msg)

where:

Examples

  1. Using your own variable names when arguments are in the required order:

    MQGET(handle, descript, opts, message);
    
  2. The following example, which is provided as a sample with the gateway (ORACLE_HOME\dg4mq\getsample.sql on Microsoft Windows and ORACLE_HOME/dg4mq/sample/getsample.sql on UNIX based systems), reads all messages from a WebSphere MQ queue. For more information, refer to the IBM publication on WebSphere MQ Application Programming.

Notes:

Note:

The PL/SQL block fails if the exception clause is left out. In that case, the PGM_SUP.NO_MORE_MESSAGES error code is raised. The MSGID and CORRELID fields that are used for MQGET are set after each call to MQGET. If they are not reset at each cycle, then MQGET checks for the next message that has the same identifiers as the last read operation, which usually do not exist. The PL/SQL block would only read one message.

A.3.1 PGM.MQMD Type Definition

PGM.MQMD specifies the control information that accompanies a message when it travels between the sending and receiving applications. It also contains information about how the message is handled by the queue manager or by the receiving application. PGM.MQMD describes the attributes of the message being retrieved.

You can use the default values for PGM.MQMD fields or change the fields for your application requirements. For example, to change a field value, do the following:

mqmd.field_name := field_value;

where:

  • mqmd is the PGM.MQMD object data type and it describes the attributes of the message being retrieved

  • field_name is a field name of the PGM.MQMD object type definition. You can set as many fields as necessary. Refer to Table A-2 for field names and descriptions.

  • field_value is the value to assign to field_name. You can specify a value or use a PGM_SUP constant to assign a value.

where:

You can use your own variable names when arguments are in the required order as follows:

MQOPEN and(descript, open_options, handle);

A.4.1 PGM.MQOD Type Definition

PGM.MQOD is used to define the object to open. You can use the default values for PGM.MQOD fields or change the fields for your application requirements. For example, you can change a field value as follows:

mqod.field_name := field_value

where:

  • mqod is the PGM.MQOD data type and specifies the object to open.

  • field_name is a field name of the PGM.MQOD type definition. You can set as many fields as necessary. Refer to Table A-4 for field names and descriptions.

Is ignored unless the OBJECTNAME field specifies the name of a model queue.  When a model queue is involved, then this field specifies the name of the dynamic queue to be created at the queue manager to which the gateway is connected.

CHAR(48)

AMQ.*

ALTERNATEUSERID

If the options argument of MQOPEN is set to the value of PGM_SUP.MQOO_ALTERNATE_USER_AUTHORITY, then this field specifies the alternate user ID which the queue manager uses to check the authorization for the queue being opened.

CHAR(12)

NULL


A.5 MQPUT Procedure

MQPUT sends a message to a queue. The queue must already be open by a previous call to MQOPEN with its options argument set to the value of PGM_SUP.MQOO_OUTPUT.

MQPUT differs from MQI calls as follows:

Definition

MQPUT(hobj, mqmd, mqpmo, msg)

where:

Example

  1. You can use your own variable names when arguments are in the required order:

    MQPUT(handle, descript, options, message);
    
  2. The following sample, which is provided as a sample with the gateway (ORACLE_HOME\dg4mq\sample\putsample.sql on Microsoft Windows and ORACLE_HOME/dg4mq/sample/putsample.sql on UNIX based systems), sends a message shorter than 32767 bytes:

A.5.1 PGM.MQPMO Type Definition

PGM.MQPMO is used to define the mqpmo argument of MQPUT. It specifies option and control information for processing a message.

You can use the default values for PGM.MQPMO fields or change the fields for the application requirements. For example, to change a field value:

mqpmo.field_name := field_value

where:

  • mqpmo is the PGM.MQPMO data type and specifies option and control information about how the message is processed and put into a queue.

  • field_name is a field name of the PGM.MQPMO type definition. You can set as many fields as necessary. Refer to Table A-5 for field names and descriptions.

  • field_value is the value to assign to field_name. You can specify a value or use a PGM_SUP constant to assign a value.

Table A-5 PGM.MQPMO Fields

Field Name Description PL/SQL Data Type Initial Value

OPTIONS

Specifies options to control the MQPUT procedure. The field is set by adding one or more of the PGM_SUP definitions.  Refer to "OPTIONS Field".

BINARY_INTEGER

PGM.MQPMO_SYNCPOINT

(Messages placed on the queue are coordinated by the Oracle transaction coordinator.)

CONTEXT

Specifies the object handle of the input queue. It is only used when the OPTIONS field has the bit PGM_SUP.MQPMO_PASS_IDENTITY_CONTEXT or the bit PGM_SUP.MQPMO_PASS_ALL_CONTEXT set.

BINARY_INTEGER

Zero

RESOLVEDQNAME

Contains the resolved name of the destination queue. This is an output field set by the queue manager on return.

CHAR(48)

NULL

RESOLVEDQMGRNAME

Contains the resolved name of the queue manager for the queue name returned in the RESOLVEDQNAME field. This is an output field set by the queue manager on return.

CHAR(48)

NULL


A.6 PGM_SUP Package

PGM_SUP contains constant and exception definitions to use with the gateway procedures and PGM type definitions. Using these values requires extensive knowledge of MQI and WebSphere MQ programming in general. These definitions follow the MQI definition rules. For complete information about writing WebSphere MQ applications, refer to the IBM MQSeries Application Programming Reference.

-- NAME
--   test.sql
--
-- DESCRIPTION
--
--   Specify the database link name you created for the gateway. To do this,
--   replace the database link name 'YOUR_DBLINK_NAME' with the dblink name
--   you chose when the database link was created.
--
--   This script performs a test run for the MQSeries gateway. In this
--   script the queuename is 'YOUR_QUEUE_NAME', replace queuename with 
--   a valid queue name at the queue manager the gateway is configured 
--   for.
--
--   First the script puts a raw message of 10 bytes on the specified 
--   queue. 
-- 
--   When successfully completed the put operation, the script does a 
--   get on the same queue to read the message back.
--
--   The contents of both messages put and retrieved from the queue are 
--   printed to standard out for verification by the user.
--
-- NOTES
--   Run the script from the SQL*Plus command line.
--
--   Make the sure the user is granted 'EXECUTE' on package dbms_output
--
