Websphere MQ integration with Sun Java System Application Server using Generic RA
By sivakumart on Feb 27, 2006
I just checked in a how-to style integration guide [co-authored with my colleague Sushmita Sharma] that shows how Generic RA for JMS could be used to integrate WebSphere MQ 6.0 (formerly MQ Series) with Sun Java System Application Server/Project GlassFish. Please use the users/dev mailing list at the project community site http://genericjmsra.dev.java.net for any questions/suggestions/improvements you might have.
An abstract from the article
"It has often been an enterprise application integration developer's nightmare to integrate disparate messaging products with transactional applications deployed in a Java EE application server. The preferred message provider pluggability mechanism in J2EE 1.4 and beyond is using the Connectors 1.5 architecture, but a lot of messaging providers do not bundle Connectors 1.5 compliant resource adapters to help in this integration.
The Generic resource adapter for JMS project helps in integrating messaging products with J2EE application servers by wrapping their JMS client library in a J2EE Connector Architecture 1.5 resource adapter. It has been used to integrate different messaging products like Tibco EMS and Sun Java System Message Queue with the Sun Java System Application Server. In this article we would guide you through the steps for using the Generic Resource Adapter for JMS [referred to as 'Generic RA' in the article going forward] to integrate IBM WebSphere MQ 6.0 [formerly MQ Series] with Sun Java System Application Server 8.2 and above
Instructions outlined in this article could also be used to integration WebSphere MQ 6.0 with Project GlassFish and the Java EE 5 SDK preview/Sun Java System Application Server PE 9 beta versions available today. "
We have seen a lot of interest in the Generic RA for JMS community lately and some of them have used the project to integrate different JMS providers with their application servers. If you have any success/experience in using Generic Resource Adapter for JMS in any application server to integrate with any JMS provider of your choice, please let the users alias/the project owners [binod AT dev DOT java dot NET (or) sivakumart AT dev DOT java dot NET] know and we would be glad to host your experiences in the community site.
