|About Oracle Java CAPS Application Adapters Java CAPS Documentation|
This topic provides conceptual information about WebSphere MQ and its Java CAPS adapter.
WebSphere MQ (formerly MQSeries™) from IBM™ is a client-server message broker supporting an open API (application programming interface), available on a variety of operating systems including AIX™, Solaris™, HP-UX™, and Windows™. WebSphere MQ is “middleware” that provides commercial messaging and queuing services. Messaging enables programs to communicate with each other via messages rather than direct connection. Messages are placed in queues for temporary storage, freeing up programs to continue to work independently. This process also allows communication across a network of dissimilar components, processors, operating systems, and protocols.
The Adapter for WebSphere MQ (referred to as the WebSphere MQ Adapter) allows the Oracle Java CAPS ESB system to exchange data with IBM’s WebSphere MQ. Java CAPS ESB, using the WebSphere MQ Adapter, uses business logic within a Collaboration or Business Process to perform operations for data identification, manipulation, and transformation. Messages are tailored to meet the communication requirements of specific applications or protocols. Queues or Topics provide non-volatile storage for data within the Java CAPS ESB system allowing applications to run independently of one another at different speeds and times.
The WebSphere MQ Adapter transparently integrates existing systems with IBM’s WebSphere MQ. This document explains how to install and configure the WebSphere MQ Adapter.
