IBM MQ V8 Application Development (with Linux Labs)

Learn about procedural application development for IBM MQ.

GK# 4980 Vendor# WM508G

Course Overview


This course focuses on procedural application development for IBM MQ. It covers basic concepts applicable to most IBM MQ versions, new IBM MQ V8 capabilities, and V8.0.0.4 capabilities such as capped message expiry, redistributable clients, and URL support for client channel definition tables.

The course begins by describing IBM MQ, explaining the impact of design and development choices in the IBM MQ environment. It then describes IBM MQ application programming concepts, and provides programming topics and exercises to develop the skills necessary to implement various application requirements. These topics include methods of putting and getting messages, identifying code that creates queue manager affinities, and working with transactions. The course then provides lectures and hands-on experience with IBM MQ clients, and use of the publish/subscribe messaging style. Finally, the course describes the IBM MQ Light interface, introduces Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP), and explains how to set up an AMQP channel and how to interface with IBM MQ Light.
