Sun Java System Message Queue 3.7 UR1 Administration Guide

ProcedureTo Configure a JDBC-Based Data Store

  1. Set JDBC-related properties in the broker’s configuration file.

    The relevant properties are discussed under JDBC-Based Persistence and listed in Table 14–6. In particular, you must set the broker’s property to jdbc (see Persistence Properties).

  2. Place a copy of, or a symbolic link to, your JDBC driver’s .jar file in the following location:

    • On Solaris:

    • On Linux:

    • On Windows:


    For example, if you are using PointBase on a Solaris system, the following command copies the driver’s .jar file to the appropriate location:

    % cp j2eeSDKInstallDirectory/pointbase/lib/pointbase.jar /usr/share/lib/imq/ext

    The following command creates a symbolic link instead:

    % ln -s j2eeSDKID/lib/pointbase/pointbase.jar /usr/share/lib/imq/ext
  3. Create the database schema needed for Message Queue persistence.

    Use the imqdbmgr create all command (for an embedded database) or the imqdbmgr create tbl command (for an external database); see Database Manager Utility.

    1. Change to the directory where imqdbmgr resides:

      • On Solaris:

        cd /usr/bin
      • On Linux:

        cd /opt/sun/mq/bin
      • On Windows:

        cd IMQ_HOME\\bin
    2. Enter the imqdbmgr command:

      imqdbmgr create all

      Note –

      If you use an embedded database, it is best to create it under the following directory:

      /instances/ instanceName/dbstore/databaseName

      If an embedded database is not protected by a user name and password, it is probably protected by file system permissions. To ensure that the database is readable and writable by the broker, the user who runs the broker should be the same user who created the embedded database using the imqdbmgr command.
