1 Introduction

Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Adapter for WebSphere MQ enables you to connect third-party applications to JD Edwards EnterpriseOne by sending and receiving messages through IBM's WebSphere MQ messaging system. The adapter monitors an inbound queue for request and reply messages, performs the requested services, and places the results on outbound queues. The adapter also monitors JD Edwards EnterpriseOne for certain activities and publishes the results in an outbound message queue. All messages transported through WebSphere MQ are in the form of XML documents.

The purpose of this document is to describe the configuration and operation of the adapter. A separate document, the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Interoperability Guide, in the chapter "Understanding Messaging Queue Adapters" explains the design of the adapter, the formats of the documents, and the tasks necessary to create, modify, and process the XML documents in the Events chapters.

The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Adapter for WebSphere MQ is a JD Edwards EnterpriseOne product that can be licensed and installed independently. You use this adapter to connect JD Edwards EnterpriseOne with any system that can implement the IBM WebSphere MQ messaging protocols, including Websphere Commerce Suite (WCS), and produce and consume XML documents in the prescribed formats. The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Adapter for WebSphere MQ exports and imports XML documents through WebSphere MQ in the prescribed formats.

Overview of three operations:

  1. Inbound transactions through calling business functions (BSFNs).

  2. Outbound Z events delivery through setting up EnterpriseOne Z events mechanism.

    The remaining guide applies only to inbound and outbound using Z events.

  3. Outbound Real-Time events delivery through setting up EnterpriseOne Real-Time events mechanism.

1.1 Accessing Minimum Technical Requirements

Customers must conform to the supported platforms for the release as detailed in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Minimum Technical Requirements. In addition, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne may integrate, interface, or work in conjunction with other Oracle products. Refer to the following link for cross-reference material in the Program Documentation for Program prerequisites and version cross-reference documents to assure compatibility of various Oracle products: http://www.oracle.com/corporate/contracts/index.html

Access the current Minimum Technical Requirement (MTR) document (Document ID 745831.1) posted on My Oracle Support.


1.2 Creating Outbound WebSphere MQ Queues For Real-Time Events

If you are interested in receiving real-time events, real-time event queues must be created. The real-time event queue does not need to be created if you are not interested in receiving real-time events.

See "Understanding MSMQ" in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Interoperability Guide.
