Technical Introduction to WebSphere MQ v7 Training

This is a one day technical overview of the functions available in the IBM WebSphere MQ V7 product on all platforms. This course is a prerequisite for other administration and programming courses. This course is lecture-based with some optional demonstrations and end of unit checkpoints.

  • Distributed queuing
  • MQI Programming
  • WebSphere MQ Security
  • System Management
  • Other communication styles and functional comparison of MQ with them.
What you will learn

At the completion of this course, the student should be able to:

    • Describe the functions and facilities of WebSphere MQ
    • Compare messaging and queuing to other communication styles
    • Understand the application programming API (MQI) and Java interfaces
    • Understand at a high level the systems management requirement
    • nderstand WebSphere MQ security
  WebSphere MQ system administrators, WebSphere MQ application programmers, and technical people considering WebSphere MQ.
  One day.
