IBM iSeries 400 users who install an Integrated xSeries Server can now run MQSI for Windows NT on an iSeries 400 Server. The Integrated xSeries Server for iSeries has an Intel processor and PC memory, which are packaged on a motherboard to fit inside the iSeries 400.

Once inside the iSeries, device drivers are provided to share:

  • The iSeries hard disks
  • LAN adapter
  • CD-ROM
  • Tape drives

For more information refer to:

MQSI is a cross-platform middleware application integration engine — a powerful information broker — that manages:

  • Business information integration
  • Application integration

    Integration of external applications or external new applications

  • Integrated Application Data with business data

    Builds dynamic distribution mechanism for information for users to subscribe to applications

  • Visualization of application flow through the use of a graphical development environment

MQSI is architected with a library of nodes produced by IBM and delivered with the product. In addition, further plug-in nodes and parsers can be downloaded.

Customers, business partners, or other third parties may add to these functions by developing further plug-ins, which may be used with this open framework concept.

Additionally, the V2 product has close synergy with relational database technology for message augmentation, warehousing, and message flow tools.

Dynamic publish/subscribe exploits MQSeries transactional integrity. The advanced message format dictionary and manipulation tools support multiple formats, including:

  • XML
  • Plug-ins
  • Third-party dictionaries and formats

MQSI uses MQSeries to send and receive messages between applications. With MQSI, operations are performed on the messages. These operations could include:

  • Filtering
  • Computational (based on message content)
  • Augmenting messages from business data
  • Applying a variety of rules and routing functions, including publish and subscribe

Message formats can be self-defining, using XML, or defined, using an IBM-provided format repository or third-party message dictionaries. Predefined templates mean MQSI V2.0.2 can exchange information with major packaged applications.

Features of MQSI

Configurable Data Flow Framework

Allows filter operations and manipulation and enrichment of message content through:

  • Data extraction from databases (DB2®, Oracle, and Sybase, on HP-UX, AIX, and Sun Solaris. DB2, Oracle, Sybase, and SQLServer on Windows NT)
  • Delivery of messages to dynamic (client controlled) subscribers
  • Warehousing
  • Invocation of third-party message processing capabilities

GUI Tools

  • Defines, deploys, and administers the message processing services that act on a message stream
  • Includes a visual builder for designing message processing services
  • Allows those services to be updated while the broker is active to:
    • Respond to changing business needs
    • Allow continuous online operation
  • Includes a graphical editor for defining publish/subscribe broker topology (runs on the Windows NT platform)

Interactive Message Flow Debugger

An interactive message flow debugger is a new feature of the MQSI Control Center. It:

  • Supports the interactive debugging of a selected message flow
  • Allows the developer to:
    • Set breakpoints within the flow
    • Step from node to node interactively
    • Examine the content of a message as it passes between nodes
    • Modify the content of the message between nodes

New Era of Networks (NEON) Rules and Formatter V5.2

  • Provides improved support for repeating fields in messages and in rules evaluation
  • Makes available National Language Support
  • Improves integration of the NEON Formatter so that message formats defined using the NEON Formatter:
    • Can be built by any node within the message flow
    • Can now be the output format of a Compute node

    This removes many of the restrictions to their use in previous versions of the product.

Messages defined using the NEON formatter:

  • Are now also visible (but, in this release, may not be modified) through the "Messages" page of the Control Center
  • Can be used for drag and drop operations in other nodes

The existing NEON GUI tools may be launched directly from the Control Center. Integration of NEON Rules has been enhanced to:

  • Exploit the functionality of the RouteToLabel node
  • Allow an evaluated action to map directly to a Label within a message flow

MQSeries Everyplace Clients and "SCADA" (Supervisory, Control, and Data Acquisition)

  • Supports direct integration of MQSeries Everyplace clients and, for the first time, the ability to connect remote telemetry and "SCADA" devices into an MQSeries environment
  • Enables end-to-end integration of remote telemetry systems into Enterprise applications

Publish/Subscribe Services

  • Routing a message to interested subscribers on both the message topic and content
  • Authorization based on hierarchically-structured topic-name space
  • Support for flexible multiple-broker network topology for publish/subscribe use
  • Compatibility with MQSeries V5 base publish/subscribe function to allow interoperation or interception of base messages

Compliance with Industry Standards

Compliance with industry standards, such as XML and SQL

NLV

NLV for 10 languages, including:

  • Installation screens
  • User messages
  • GUI panels

Benefits of MQSI

  • Bridges and adapts between mixed application environments using industry-standard protocols and technologies
  • Simplifies programming of application messaging with new higher-level language interfaces
  • Enables use of the facilities that support each of these activities, together or individually
  • Supports clients using the MQSeries MQI API
  • Supports clients built using the MQSeries Application Messaging Interface (AMI)

MQSI V2.0.2 includes a full license for MQSeries, and the functionality of MQSI Version 1, on the corresponding platform.

Transaction Processing SupportPacs

The IBM Transaction Processing SupportPacs library consists of material that complements the family of MQSeries products marketed by IBM. Each SupportPac™ supplies a particular function or service that can be used with one or more of the MQSeries products.

The Transaction Processing SupportPacs library is available on the Internet at Web site:

Accessibility by People with Disabilities

The MQSI 2.0.2 Control Center and Configuration Manager do not fully support use by people with disabilities.

Product Positioning

Integration is fundamental to e-business; therefore, it is a critical requirement for every company engaged in becoming an e-business.

Integration provides the means to bring together new and existing applications, in ways never previously envisioned, to create 21st century businesses that can be accessed from anywhere 24 by 7.

The MQSeries Information Broker strategy and product family represents the IBM response to this market need.

The MQSI initiative addresses business and application integration by helping you manage information flow with:

  • Additional platform support
  • Information manipulation
  • Routing and transformation
  • Connectivity to popular applications
  • Publish/subscribe

System connectivity is typically enhanced into application integration by developers who write code to capture, evaluate, translate, and reformat data from source applications to a format understood by destination applications.

This can be simplified at design, development, and maintenance stages by using MQSI, rather than traditional programming techniques, saving both time and effort.

Advantages of MQSI V2.0.2

  • Protects your investment in V1 (included in V2):
    • Improved integration between NEON Rules and Formatter and other functional nodes.
    • Backward compatibility with rules, formats, and templates
    • Compatibility with relevant standards, such as OMG, EJB, XML/EDI, ERP, CRM, and SCM formats
  • Allows parallel operation across multiple brokers
  • Simplifies support of multiple environments with multiple application adapters, templates, and tools
  • Can be extended via a published architectural framework, including rules, formats, warehouse, directory, security, encryption, compression, or other attached services
  • Improves choice of operating environment
    • The product, already available on Windows NT, AIX, and Sun Solaris platforms, is refreshed at 2.0.2 level.
    • New integration opportunities are advanced significantly with availability on the HP-UX and iSeries 400, using the Integrated xSeries Server (IXS) implementation.
  • Improves capability for Global solutions:

    Delivers NLV to existing platforms

  • Offers enhanced tools:

    Provides a new integrated, interactive message flow debugger

  • Provides IBM "Processor node" library
    • Additional function can be added by customers or partners.
    • Message flow capability allows nodes to be "wired" together to operate on the content of messages.
  • Extended to processor node library to provide support for:
    • Industry-standard pervasive environments
    • MQSeries Everyplace and SCADA protocols

Positioning with WebSphere™ Transcoding Publisher

  • WebSphere Transcoding Publisher is primarily focused on transforming Web-based content so that it can be delivered to a variety of client environments and devices according to the capability of the device, type of connection, and customized selections.

    For example, WebSphere Transcoding Publisher can transform and adapt XML- and HTML-based documents and images to many target environments.

  • MQSI is mainly used to process server-to-server messages, including processing field contents to determine routing, perform calculations, or check validity. MQSI uses a variety of message formats including XML.

MQSI and WebSphere Transcoding Publisher can work together to extend your business-to-business integration to new environments, such as pervasive devices.

For example, MQSI could be used alongside WebSphere Transcoding Publisher to deal directly with HTML-based pages, which need both reformatting and routing.
