WebSphere MQ Client for MPE/iX
MPE/iX Integration with the Enterprise
The WebSphere MQ Client for MPE/iX is a fully
conforming MQI client that enables MPE/iX applications to communicate with one
or more WebSphere MQ Queue Managers running on any supported platform through
The WebSphere MQ Client for MPE/iX is developed by Willow Technology under license from IBM.
The IBM WebSphere MQ range of products provides
application programming services that enable application programs to communicate
with each other using messages and queues. This form of communication is
referred to as commercial messaging. It provides assured, once-only delivery of
Message Queue Interface
The programs that comprise an WebSphere MQ application can be running on different computers, on different operating systems, and at different locations. The applications are written using a common programming interface known as the Message Queue Interface (MQI), so that applications developed on one platform can be transferred to another. When two applications communicate using messages and queues, one application puts a message on a queue, and the other application gets that message from the queue.
In WebSphere MQ, queues are managed by a component called a queue manager. The queue manager provides messaging services for the applications and processes the MQI calls they issue. The queue manager ensures that messages are put on the correct queue or that they are routed to another queue manager.
An MQI client is an independently installable component of the WebSphere MQ product line that allows a user to run WebSphere MQ applications, where the MQI client has the ability, by means of a communications protocol, to interact with one or more MQI servers and connect to their Queue Managers.
POSIX shell or Native Mode applications to access the MQI on MPE/iX systems can be written in C or HP/COBOL.
