Overview

The MQSeries® Everyplace program extends the MQSeries family; the infrastructure for connecting servers and mainframes in e-business solutions. Now with multiplatform support, MQSeries Everyplace extends the capabilities available in MQSeries Everyplace for Windows™ Version 1.0 to more gateways and devices. For gateways, the following platforms are supported:

  • AIX®
  • Sun Solaris
  • Windows NT™ and Windows 2000
  • Certain other platforms that support compatible Java™ Virtual Machines

For devices, the following Java platforms are supported:

  • Any platform that runs IBM Java, including Micro Edition
  • Any platform that runs a Sun certified JVM (1.1 level)
  • Windows 95, 98, NT, and Windows 2000
  • Supported platforms include EPOC, QNX Neutrino, Windows CE, and Pocket PC

Native Client (subset of the Java function):

  • Palm Operating System (PalmOS)

Only synchronous messaging and a subset of function is available for the Native Client.

MQSeries Everyplace embraces the messaging needs of lightweight devices, such as palmtop and laptop computers. It also supports mobility and the security requirements that arise from fragile communication networks. Not only do you gain the standard MQSeries quality of service, such as once-only, assured delivery, and disconnected operation when necessary, but you also gain the ability to run outside the protection of an Internet firewall, with sophisticated security capabilities included.

The Standard Edition offers 56-bit encryption, and a High Security version is available with 128-bit encryption.

Description

MQSeries Family

e-business is accelerating the pace of change. Speed to market and quality of service are critical for success so companies need to be agile to survive. The MQSeries family provides a versatile platform for e-business.

  • MQSeries — is the core of the MQSeries family. The base messaging servers and clients provide once, and once only, message and queuing capability on more than 35 platforms.
  • MQSeries Adapter Offering — provides a framework and tools that build and customize MQSeries adapters for existing and new, prepackaged, or custom-developed applications.
  • MQSeries Everyplace — extends the capabilities of MQSeries base messaging to mobile workers using laptops, PDAs, and telephones. It brings all the benefits of MQSeries messaging, including rock-solid security, to a failure-prone environment.
  • MQSeries Integrator — combines a one-to-many connectivity model, plus transformation, intelligent routing, and information flow modeling. It facilitates the development of new application services that comprise the functions of multiple, disparate existing business systems.
  • MQSeries Workflow — a business process management system that facilitates the rapid development and management of the business processes that integrate the IT and organizational infrastructure of a company.

MQSeries Everyplace

MQSeries Everyplace is a messaging and queuing product, which builds on the concepts of other MQSeries products, but provides function particularly suited to lightweight devices and wireless connection.

These devices require the messaging subsystem to be frugal in its use of system resources, and need to have a reliable, secure connection even when the communications coverage is unreliable. MQSeries Everyplace offers tailored function and interfaces appropriate to its customer set. Like MQSeries, it includes a unique set of messaging capabilities necessary to support its particular classes of users.

It provides cross-platform compatibility, and function extendibility.

Features of MQSeries Everyplace

  • Gives assured delivery, which means that it can be used over fragile communication networks
  • Uses a minimum of space in the mobile device
  • Integrates with other IBM MQSeries and mobile products
  • Provides remote message access, and roaming support for users
  • Has extensive security options
  • Makes efficient use of the network and has automatic recovery after failures
  • Can be configured to make best use of expensive or scarce resources
  • Can be extended, for example, to support other networks or other protocols
  • Has a Java base, which gives a wide choice of operating platforms

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 in various configurations. A typical setup 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.

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 Native Client).

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 resource requirements (for transmission 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 (not available in Native Client).

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

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

Benefits of using 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.
  • Critical applications 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, such as EPOC32, PalmOS, and Windows platforms, including Pocket PC.
  • Applications can provide immediate server or mainframe interaction when a link is available, and queued use when it is not.
  • Users can make cost-effective use of radio networks by using the built-in intelligent data compression and link policies.
  • Networks can include small, low-cost devices for remote sensing.
  • Up-to-the-minute information, such as latest stock prices, is provided by automatic transmission from central servers.
  • Programmers can choose simple setup options for security, and communications can easily work through firewalls using HTTP protocol.
  • Users can keep in touch with each other directly using device-to-device communication over the Internet (support limited).
  • Users can connect to a convenient local gateway, and use different devices at different times according to their needs.
  • Mobile workers can receive important schedule updates, or send new data, even when they are working in an environment where radio coverage is intermittent.
  • Field workers can have direct access to back-end systems using a combination of MQSeries Everyplace with other MQSeries products. For example, they can use the Publish/Subscribe function in MQSeries Integrator to subscribe to important information that can be sent direct to their mobile device.

MQSeries Everyplace is a member of the IBM Everyplace family, which includes the WebSphere™ Everyplace Suite, that integrates mobile device support. It has versatile security options, which allow 128-bit encryption if required. The administration infrastructure is designed to allow central control, and an administration program is available as an MQSeries SupportPac™. MQSeries and MQSeries Everyplace both have the advantages of assured delivery, disconnected operation, and cross-platform support. MQSeries Everyplace adds further features necessary to allow users to continue to work and access important data while away from their normal working or home environment.

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.

This product supersedes MQSeries Everyplace for Windows, Version 1.0 announced in Software Announcement 200-072 , dated April 4, 2000. It is a repackaging of that product, extended to more platforms.

Year 2000

This product is Year 2000 ready. When used in accordance with its associated documentation, it is capable of correctly processing, providing, 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

IBM Business Integration consists of five offerings under the MQSeries brand designed to complement each other:

  1. MQSeries is for secure and reliable communication of application messages over a wide range of platforms.

Planning Information

MQSeries Everyplace allows you to build a server component and to build a device component. The supplied license allows the user to run one server component on a minimum entitled machine. The price model for MQSeries base products is structured over multiple tiers, which are defined by the number of processors or processor group on which the MQSeries product will be installed for use. It uses a single charge unit, the Capacity Unit, as the means of charging. This unit has no direct relationship to machine capability: it is a charging authorization term only. Additional Capacity Units are required as you move to larger systems or add new systems.

Capacity Unit requirements for MQSeries Everyplace Gateway Standard Security Edition match the number of units required for the equivalent tiered base MQSeries server license. The Capacity Unit requirements for MQSeries Everyplace High Security Edition are shown in parentheses and have three times the number of units for the equivalent tiered base MQSeries server license.
