Overview

The MQSeries® family is already the infrastructure for connecting servers and mainframes in e-business solutions.

MQSeries Everyplace now extends this potential to a whole new set of your employees in the field and to your customers.

MQSeries Everyplace embraces the messaging needs of lightweight devices, such as palmtop and laptop computers. It also supports mobility and the special requirements that arise from fragile communication networks. You gain the standard MQSeries quality of service:

  • Once-only, assured delivery
  • Easy connectivity to other MQSeries family members
  • Disconnected operation when necessary
  • Cross-platform support

Many MQSeries Everyplace applications run outside the protection of an Internet firewall, so sophisticated security capabilities are included. A high security version is available with 128-bit encryption, the Standard Edition offers 56-bit security.

The MQSeries Everyplace for Windows™ Gateway is shipped on the Windows NT™ and Windows 2000 platforms, and mobile devices are supported on Palm OS, EPOC, and Windows platforms including WinCE. Only synchronous messaging is available on the Palm OS.

Description

Companies need to implement e-business rapidly.

MQSeries messaging is a simple way to couple systems together to allow Internet users controlled access to existing data, such as their account transactions.

Business integration across many applications is also a common element of successful implementation. Other MQSeries family members give you the tools to add value outside the basic message queuing paradigm to include application connectors and application collaboration.

Lightweight devices require the messaging subsystem to be frugal in its use of system resources. MQSeries Everyplace offers tailored function and interfaces appropriate to its customer set. It includes a unique subset of MQSeries capabilities necessary to support its particular classes of users.

MQSeries Everyplace is also a member of the IBM Everyplace family that integrates well with other members, such as the DB2® mobile edition.

Since it provides the messaging service to the Everyplace family, it is frequently a prerequisite for solutions involving those products.

You can harness the power of the MQSeries family to be your infrastructure connecting servers and mainframes in e-business solutions. MQSeries Everyplace extends this potential to a whole new set of your mobile employees and to your customers.

Using the latest mobile devices, businesses that reach customers and workers directly in their homes or while they are on the road will have a considerable advantage in the marketplace. With MQSeries Everyplace, the MQSeries family now allows business users to extend their operations into the mobile environment and expand their business model opportunities for sales and customer service.

Features of MQSeries Everyplace

MQSeries Everyplace extends e-business to mobile users:

  • Business users can process high-value transactions away from their desks because of assured message delivery.
  • Existing systems can be integrated into e-business solutions via the gateway to MQSeries networks.
  • Applications can work reliably even over unreliable mobile networks using MQSeries Everyplace messages.
  • Users can choose their own personal workstation platform thanks to the wide variety of platforms supported. (EPOC32, Palm OS and Windows platforms, including WinCE, are supported.)
  • Applications can provide immediate server or mainframe interaction when a link is available, and queued use when it is not.
  • Offers Java or C programming interfaces (platforms vary.)
  • Networks can include small, low-cost devices for remote sensing.
  • Up-to-the-minute information, such as latest stock prices, can be provided by automatic transmission from central servers.
  • Security has simple setup options and can easily work through firewalls using HTTP.
  • Users can keep in touch with each other directly using device-to-device communication over the Internet.
  • Users can connect to a convenient gateway near where they are, and use different devices at different times according to their needs.
  • Installs easily on WebSphere™ servers.
  • Versatile security options allow 128-bit encryption if required.1
  • Administration infrastructure is designed to integrate with existing MQSeries systems.

MQSeries Everyplace supports devices and gateways. Both support queues, but additionally the gateway supports connectivity to other MQSeries servers (if that is also a requirement).

Devices can be connected together without a gateway, or can be linked to one or more gateways. A typical configuration would be many devices connected to a single gateway, with that gateway connected to one or more MQSeries systems or other gateways.

MQSeries Everyplace supports HTTP and TCP/IP as transports. It also supports very high security (with authentication) if that is a requirement.

All queue managers support synchronous messaging operations, such as the ability to access queues to get, put, and browse messages. A queue manager with local queues also supports asynchronous message delivery (function not available on Palm OS).

Requires high security version

Security

Attribute objects (that contain the mechanisms to perform authentication, encryption, and compression) may be associated with messages and other objects. These can relate to:

  • Authentication: to control access
  • Compression: to reduce storage requirements (for transmission and/or storage)
  • Encryption: to protect the contents when the object is transmitted

In this way, access to message content can be selectively secured and the data can be protected, for example on backing storage.

Encryption methods available include DES, triple DES, RC4, RC6. These can offer up to 128-bit security where permitted.

Encryption greater than 56-bit is only available in the High Security edition.

Note that this product was previously known as "MQSeries lite" when included as a statement of direction in Software Announcement 299-147 , dated June 15, 1999. It was also discussed as "MQSeries Everywhere".

Year 2000

This product is Year 2000 ready. When used in accordance with its associated documentation, it is capable of correctly processing, providing, and/or receiving date data within and between the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, provided that all products (for example, hardware, software, and firmware) used with the product properly exchange accurate date data with it.

The service end date for this Year-2000-ready product is December 31, 2002.

Product Positioning

Positioning with other MQSeries Products

MQSeries Everyplace and other MQSeries products, such as MQSeries for Windows NT, all provide message queuing. Most MQSeries products are designed to work over permanent connections, either using a LAN, or a fixed WAN. In contrast, MQSeries Everyplace is designed to work with dial-up connections or other temporary or unreliable circuits, such as wireless networks.

Comparing MQSeries Everyplace to other MQSeries products:

Similar Features

  • Assured message delivery.
  • Capability to run applications even when disconnected.
  • Integrated administration infrastructure (framework only in MQSeries Everyplace).
  • Multi-platform support.
  • Existing systems can be integrated into e-business solutions (via gateway for MQSeries Everyplace).
  • Can connect to other MQSeries family members to allow e-business integration.

Additional Features in MQSeries Everyplace

  • Designed for unreliable networks.
  • Datastream length is minimized.
  • Security features are built in.
  • Data can easily pass through firewalls.
  • Data needs to pass through a Gateway to reach other MQSeries nodes.
  • Mobile devices can exchange data without a server.2
  • Supports dial-up and mobile use.2
  • Supports unreliable wireless connections.
  • Lightweight mobile devices are supported.
2
MQSeries for Windows, V2.x can also perform this function.

Positioning Against Other Non-MQSeries Products — Web Browsers

Web Browsers

  • Standard interface
  • Multimedia support
    but
  • May be slow and inefficient
  • Uncertain status of data delivery
  • Frustrating to use in poor conditions

MQSeries Everyplace

  • Assures delivery in adverse conditions
  • Secure and efficient
  • Can allow disconnected operation
  • Allows message prioritization
  • Supports any data, including XML
  • Simple to program using policy support
  • Can connect to MQSeries on 30 or more different platforms
  • Can connect via MQSeries to other programs (for example, MQSeries Integrator, or MQSeries Workflow)

Positioning Against Other Non-MQSeries Products — Databases

Mobile Database Replication

  • Simple to program
  • Fits well with host databases
    but
  • Not easy over unpredictable links
  • May send unnecessary data
  • Data only in standard (database) format
  • Needs additional programming to talk to back-end legacy applications
  • Cannot be used for dialogs

MQSeries Everyplace

  • Makes good use of unpredictable links
  • Sends only data needed by the program
  • Can participate in e-business using MQSeries family products
  • Automatic transmission can provide up-to-the-minute data
  • Suitable for business transactions
  • Suitable for machine-to-machine communication

Typical Uses

MQSeries Everyplace extends e-business to mobile users:

  • Executives and other business users can process high-value transactions away from their desks because of assured message delivery and built-in 128-bit encryption.3
  • Existing systems can be integrated into e-business solutions via the gateway to MQSeries networks. Mobile workers could access and update company ordering or stock data while on the road.
  • Applications can provide immediate server or mainframe interaction when a link is available, and queued use when it is not. Orders can be taken, even if a link is not available.
  • Applications can work reliably even over unreliable mobile networks using MQSeries Everyplace messages. Mobile staff can receive up-to-the-minute schedule or status information.
  • Users can choose their own personal workstation platform thanks to the wide variety of platforms supported. The same data can be accessed via devices of different sizes at different times. Thus the user could have a small device on the road, and a laptop in the office or home.
  • Users can make cost-effective use of radio networks by using the built-in intelligent data compression and link policies. Routine data can be sent overnight on cheap networks.
  • Small footprint allows use in low-cost devices for unattended operation. Up-to-the-minute information, such as latest stock prices, could be provided to unattended displays by automatic transmission from central servers.
  • Users can keep in touch with each other directly using device-to-device communication over the Internet.

MQSeries Everyplace High Security Edition: The server (gateway) component produced using the toolkit in the high security edition must only be used in accordance with the capacity units shown in the table for that edition.

MQSeries Device Components: Device components built using the device toolkit may be copied to and used in multiple devices, but for use with platforms supported by other MQSeries products, such as Windows 98 and Windows NT, a Device Use Authorization is required for each device on which the Device Component is installed. Smaller devices do not require Device Use Authorization. Service is available for these smaller devices in the same way as for Clients in MQSeries.

Customer Responsibilities: You must provide at least the minimum hardware and software environments in which the licensed programs operate.

Customers must identify the machines on which they will install the MQSeries Everyplace products, and purchase the required number of capacity units and Device Use Authorizations with their program package order.

Problem determination (PD) is a customer responsibility. PD is an assessment of whether a problem is caused by hardware or software. PD is complete only when the cause of the problem is identified. This assessment includes examination of available symptoms using the PD procedures documented in the product.

Problem source identification (PSI) is a customer responsibility. PSI begins when software is determined to be the source of the problem. PSI includes tracing the source of the program to a host system control program (SCP), an application program, or another source. Assisting the customer with PSI is an IBM service and support responsibility.

Installability: MQSeries Everyplace for Windows is supplied in two editions. Each edition contains both the Gateway component and the Device component. Refer to the Terms and Conditions section for restrictions on the use of these editions and components.
