There are two methods for applications to communicate: Fire and Forget Request/Response . This form of communication is referred to as commercial messaging.Messaging Fundamentals WebSphere MQSeries enables application programs to communicate with each other using messages and queues.

Application Communications Fire and Forget Put Record Get Record Record Queue Program A Program B Request/Response Put Record Get Record Record Queue Program A Get Record Processed Message Program B Reply to Queue Put Record Processed Message .

Headers typically contain elements like: ‡ Unique Message Id ‡ Routing information ‡ Message format The following are examples of the data part of a message: ‡ A record from an indexed or flat file ‡ A row from a DB2 table ‡ Individual columns from DB2 tables ‡ Multiple rows or records .What is a message? Message = Header(s) + Application Data Header « Application Data A message consists of a header and the attached application data.

This figure shows how messaging works in the simple case where the program putting the message and program getting the message are both on the same computer and connected to the same queue manager. .What is a Queue? A queue is simply a place to put data.

The queue manager logs all activity with each individual queue thus creating an audit trail. Multiple queue managers can coexist with each other. The limiting factor is the availability of system resources.What is Queue Manager? A queue manager is the subsystem software which controls access to the individual queues assigned to it.
