Chapter 5. Point-to-point runtime
The simplest scenario in which to begin building an SOA environment is to
introduce connection middleware that can be used to control the connectivity
between applications. This lacks most of the features that make an SOA
architecture, but is a simple way to begin introducing the elements into an
existing environment. Since no mediation is used at this stage, this chapter
focuses on connectivity between messaging transport software. These
techniques form the basis for building more advanced SOA runtime
We first give an overview of the process required to configure WebSphere MQ
queue managers, queues, and connectivity between queue managers. This will
give you an idea of how the structural elements of WebSphere MQ are created
and connected.
Next, we show how to connect a WebSphere Application Server service
integration bus (or just the bus) to WebSphere MQ. WebSphere ESB is built on
WebSphere Application Server and the bus is used for message transport. Thus,
this process is the same whether you are using WebSphere Application Server
or WebSphere ESB.
Last, we show how to set up shared queues using WebSphere MQ for z/OS.
