Description

WebSphere MQ

Speed to market and quality of service are critical for success, so companies need to be agile to survive. WebSphere MQ provides a versatile foundation for an ESB.

Business integration

WebSphere software includes business integration products and solutions that can help integrate just two applications, a single department, or the entire enterprise, reaching across business channels, trading partners and Web customers. The WebSphere platform includes:

  • WebSphere MQ, the core of application integration, which integrates many platforms. Providing the messaging foundation for an enterprise service bus, and assuring reliable message delivery, it can be used alone or combined seamlessly with WebSphere Application Server. Both WebSphere MQ and WebSphere Application Server provide messaging resources that can form the foundation for a company's ESB, which can grow incrementally with their business needs.
  • WebSphere MQ Extended Security Edition, which enhances WebSphere MQ with end-to-end, application-level data protection features. It enables enterprise-wide, remote management of security polices on your MQ network and can be deployed to existing production environments without changes to existing WebSphere MQ applications.
  • WebSphere Business Integration Message Broker, a powerful information broker that includes a one-to-many connectivity model plus transformation, intelligent routing, and information flow modelling across multiple, disparate business systems. It also supports publications and subscriptions including mobile clients, and remote telemetry devices.
  • WebSphere MQ Everyplace™, which brings the benefits of assured message delivery and rock-solid security to the failure-prone environment of mobile working.
  • WebSphere MQ Workflow, a business process management system that enables the definition, execution, and swift change of complete business processes that span systems, applications, and people.
  • WebSphere Business Integration Server Foundation builds on the best-in-class WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment to provide a powerful standards-based integration platform for building and deploying Business Process Execution Language for Web Services (BPEL) and Web Service-based composite applications.

In addition, IBM has further software products to support business integration, such as its WebSphere Business Integration Adapters.

WebSphere MQ V6.0

Enhancements provided by WebSphere MQ V6.0 include the new Linux POWER platforms (Linux for IBM eServer iSeries and Linux for IBM eServer pSeries).

Manageability

  • Easier problem determination and avoidance

    New status information shows whether messages are being processed or are being delayed, and indicates what might be causing any delays.

    Statistics similar to the system management facility (SMF) data for z/OS® systems are written to event queues, enabling better monitoring of application and queue manager behavior. This could be used for monitoring the required capacity of a system, giving an indication of workloads.

    It is easier to see important information returned from status commands because programmable command format (PCF) and MQSC commands now have a WHERE clause that filters queries. This can be used in commands that enquire about status, to see potential problems before they cause a significant outage.

  • Monitor the MQ network and change the way it is working

    The new DISPLAY CONN command shows which applications are connected to a queue manager and which queues they have opened.

    The new STOP CONN command forces a disconnection from a queue manager, allowing an MQ administrator to disable a problem application.

    New attributes for queues, queue manager channels, and cluster channels extend the range of cluster workload algorithms.

    WebSphere MQ can track the route that a message would be expected to take through its network. New flags can request that queue managers that process the message should send back an activity report (for example, which channel, queue manager, and transmission queue have been used).

    The size of the active log is now 128 GB on UNIX® platforms and 64 GB on Microsoft Windows systems.

    Event messages are generated when log files are switched and it is now easier to automate the copying and archiving of log files. In addition, a queue manager can be made to replay copied logs without fully starting.

Standards

  • Java Message Service (JMS) V1.1

    The current version of the JMS standard is supported. The older level of interface is also included for backward compatibility.

  • Internet Protocol V6 (IPv6)

    WebSphere MQ now fully supports IPv6 networks. IPv6 is the latest version of the IP protocols and provides many more IP addresses than are allowed under IPv4.

ESB

A combination of WebSphere MQ servers, WebSphere Application Server deployments, and WebSphere Business Integration Message Brokers can be used to deploy an ESB. This combined network of servers can then seamlessly exchange information across your enterprise, regardless of whether the original communication began as a JMS message from WebSphere Application Server or WebSphere MQ, or as a native message from WebSphere MQ.

Performance, capacity, and scalability

  • Exploitation of 64-bit addressing

    For AIX, HP-UX, and Solaris, WebSphere MQ V6.0 queue managers are 64-bit processes only. Application libraries are provided for both 32-bit and 64-bit applications. Existing 32-bit applications continue to run unchanged; newer applications might choose to take advantage of 64-bit addressing.

    However, channel exits, data conversion exits, and API exits need to be recompiled; any exits that run in application code will require both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

  • Data compression on channels — All channel types now support compression, which can improve network bandwidth usage and may also improve performance of encrypted SSL channels.

Usability

  • Cross-platform configuration tool

    An Eclipse-based configuration user interface, which runs on Microsoft Windows and Linux x86 platforms, replaces the Windows-based MQ Explorer, and is able to configure WebSphere MQ on other platforms such as z/OS. It is extensible, with documented interfaces for additional plug-ins. Eclipse is an award-winning, open source platform for the construction of powerful software development tools and rich desktop applications.

  • Quick Tour

    A product Quick Tour introduces the basic concepts of application integration and describes WebSphere MQ function and capabilities.

  • Reliable file transfer

    WebSphere MQ reduces the time and skills required to be productive with a new File Transfer application that provides a simple GUI tool to move files across the MQ network with reliability. In addition, simple scripting commands for file transfer enable batches of files to be transferred, triggered by the operating system, or by applications.

Additional new function

  • JMS clients can use the channel definition table and run the same channel exits as other clients.
  • The security interfaces used by setmqaut are given programmable command format (PCF) equivalents to permit remote administration.
  • Some error log entries can be suppressed or duplicates ignored.
  • Queue managers on all platforms can automatically start items such as applications, listeners, and trigger monitors.
  • Use of GSKit on Windows brings cross-platform consistency for SSL configuration.
  • Support for Web Services through the integration of SOAP SupportPac MA0R.
  • Support for Publish/Subscribe through the integration of SupportPac MA0C.
  • Support for the IBM Message Service Client for C and C++ (through SupportPac IA94).

Function no longer supported

The following functions, provided in previous levels of WebSphere MQ, are not supported in WebSphere MQ V6.0:

  • 32-bit hardware support for AIX, HP-UX, and Solaris; 32-bit application support remains
  • Distributed Computing Environment (DCE); any applications that use the "*_d" libraries on HP-UX must be relinked
  • UDP transport protocol on AIX
  • The Windows NT™ platform
  • Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-ins on Windows (replaced by Eclipse plug-ins)
  • Use of MMC to control automatic start of programs on Windows (replaced by queue manager-controlled capabilities)

Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act

WebSphere MQ V6.0 is capable as of June 24, 2005, when used in accordance with IBM's associated documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it.

Service-oriented architecture and ESB

In a service-oriented architecture (SOA), a connectivity layer often referred to as an ESB optimizes information distribution between service requesters and service providers. Each enterprise can develop its own unique ESB, reflecting how far it has advanced toward becoming an On Demand Business.

As key members of the WebSphere software portfolio, WebSphere MQ and WebSphere Business Integration Message Broker enable you to begin deploying your ESB today.

These programs help maximize the value of your IT investment by broadening the range of environments this connectivity layer can reach, such as hardware and operating system platforms and programming models such as J2EE and .NET.

The proven delivery mechanisms of WebSphere MQ provide ESBs with a reliable underpinning for enterprise-class connectivity. WebSphere Application Server messaging resources provide a best-of-breed JMS implementation for use with J2EE-hosted applications.

WebSphere MQ seamlessly extends those messaging resources to non-J2EE environments to integrate virtually anything, across more than 40 platforms. WebSphere Business Integration Message Broker adds services such as message routing and transformation and support for a range of message distribution options and protocols to improve their flexibility and performance.

Business integration software from IBM enables you to begin reaping the benefits of service-oriented architectures and begin deploying ESBs today.

IBM can help you to grow project-by-project toward an On Demand Business.

WebSphere MQ, WebSphere Application Server, and WebSphere Business Integration Message Broker play a pivotal role in creating service-oriented architectures and will continue to do so as IBM delivers enhanced capabilities to accelerate the deployment of ESBs that span the entire IT ecosystem.

Compatibility: WebSphere MQ V6.0 will interoperate with queue managers from any previous level of WebSphere MQ or MQSeries® products.

The WebSphere MQ Explorer now runs on the Linux x86 platform (in addition to the Windows platform). The MQ Explorer can be used on a client connection from an earlier supported level of WebSphere MQ or MQSeries on a different platform (for example, WebSphere MQ V5.3 on AIX or MQSeries V5.1 on Solaris, Intel Platform Edition).

Limitations: For 64-bit queue-manager platforms, WebSphere MQ V6.0 does not support 32-bit instances of DB2. Customers who use 32-bit instances of DB2 must migrate them to 64-bit instances, as detailed in the DB2 documentation.

Customers are charged on a per-processor basis. Further information is available at

Charging and License Use Management

Charges for authorized use of the Program are based on Processor License Units (PLUs). The use of the Program on any server machine or extended transactional client requires one PLU to be acquired (from IBM or an IBM Business Partner) for each processor core contained in the machine on which any copy of the Program (with the exception of other client components, remote administration, or sample programs) is to run. PLUs are required for every server machine on which the Program is installed. You are also required to obtain a corresponding number of additional PLUs if the Program installation is moved to a server machine with a greater number of processor cores or if any additional processor cores are added to, or configured on, the server machine on which the Program is installed.

Failure to comply with the requirement for the appropriate number of PLUs will invalidate the terms of this license.

No separate server or client authorizations are required to license any other component part of the Program, including the Information Center and the MQ Explorer.

You should retain all Passport Advantage documents as Proofs of Entitlement.

Charge metrics definitions

"Per processor" charging under Full Capacity

In Full Capacity charging — where charges are based on a capacity-based metric, such as a processor, PoEs must be acquired for all capacity that is active on the server where the program or a component of the program is run.

As an example, a Customer has ordered a server with four processors. The server is shipped with six processors, but two of them are "inactive". Thus, four processors are active for the customer.

Notes

  1. IBM defines a physical processor in a computer as a functional unit that interprets and executes instructions. A physical processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and logic units.
  2. Multi-core technology allows two or more processors (commonly called "cores") to be active on a single silicon chip. With multi-core technology, IBM considers each "core" to be a physical processor. For example, in a dual-core chip, there are two (2) physical processors residing on the single silicon chip.
  3. In the zSeries' Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) environment, each IFL engine is considered a single "physical processor".
  4. Threading, a technique which makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does NOT affect the count of physical processors.
  5. Where "blade" technology is employed, each "blade" is considered a separate server and charging is based upon the total number of processors on the blade on which the program is run.

"Per processor" charging under Sub-capacity (when available)

Required authorized use for eligible Programs is based upon the highest observed daily utilization of the partition(s) where the Program or a component of the Program, executes during a reporting period as measured by an IBM license management tool. IBM license management tool use is required for your submission of periodic reports to IBM. For each sub-capacity eligible software Program, the required authorized use is re-evaluated based upon the quarterly sub-capacity reports submitted to IBM.

  • The number of authorizations you must acquire is the smaller value of either of the following methods:
    • The total number of active (available for use) processors in the machine, or
    • The sum of (1) and (2) as follows (any remaining fraction of a processor must be rounded up to a full processor in the final aggregation)
      1. When a Program is run in partitions with dedicated processors, the sum of the Processing Units of those partitions, and
      2. When a Program is run in partitions that are members of a Shared Processing Pool, the smaller of:
        • The number of processors assigned to the pool, or
        • The sum of the Virtual Processors of each Uncapped Partition plus the Processing Units in each Capped Partition running a Program.
  • z/VM® Guest Charging
    • The total number of active (available for use) processors in the machine, or
    • The sum of (1) and (2) as follows (any remaining fraction of a processor must be rounded up to a full processor in the final aggregation)
      1. When a program is run in VM Guests with dedicated processors, the sum of the Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) engines of those VM Guests, and
      2. When a program is run in VM Guests that are members of a Shared Processing Pool (z/VM), the smaller of:
        • The number of processors assigned to the z/VM pool, or
        • The sum of the IFL engines in each z/VM pool running a Program.

Notes

  1. IBM defines a physical processor in a computer as a functional unit that interprets and executes instructions. A physical processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and logic units.
  2. Multi-core technology allows two or more processors (commonly called "cores") to be active on a single silicon chip. With multi-core technology, IBM considers each "core" to be a physical processor. For example, in a dual-core chip, there are two (2) physical processors residing on the single silicon chip.
  3. In the zSeries Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) environment, each IFL engine is considered a single "physical processor".
  4. Threading, a technique which makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does NOT affect the count of physical processors.

Customers will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee: If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program, return it within 30 days from the invoice date, to the party (either IBM or its reseller) from whom you acquired it, for a refund. This applies only to your first acquisition of the program.

Copy and use on home/portable computer: No

Volume orders (IVO): No

Passport Advantage applies: Yes, and through the Passport Advantage Web site at

Usage restriction: Yes

The Program includes additional Programs and/or Program components where the authorized use is limited; these usage restrictions are listed in the Program's License Information titled Program Unique Terms. Refer to this announcement letter for further clarification and examples of permitted use.

  1. Charging and License Use Management

    Charges for authorized use of the Program are based on Processor License Units (PLUs). The use of the Program on any server machine or extended transactional client requires one PLU to be acquired (from IBM or an IBM Business Partner) for each processor core contained in the machine on which any copy of the Program (with the exception of other client components, remote administration, or sample programs) is to run. PLUs are required for every server machine on which the Program is installed.

    You are also required to obtain a corresponding number of additional PLUs if the Program installation is moved to a server machine with a greater number of processor cores or if any additional processor cores are added to, or configured on, the server machine on which the Program is installed.

    Failure to comply with the requirement for the appropriate number of PLUs will invalidate the terms of this license.

    No separate server or client authorizations are required to license any other component part of the Program, including the Information Center and the MQ Explorer.

    You should retain all Passport Advantage documents as Proofs of Entitlement.

  2. Specific restrictions also apply to various components of the Program, as described below.

HP Warranty Statement

Duration of Limited Warranty: 90 days

HP warrants to you, the end customer, that HP hardware, accessories, and supplies will be free from defects in materials and workmanship after the date of purchase for the period specified above. If HP receives notice of such defects during the warranty period, HP will, at its option, either repair or replace products which prove to be defective. Replacement products may be either new or equivalent in performance to new.

HP warrants to you that HP Software will not fail to execute its programming instructions after the date of purchase, for the period specified above, due to defects in materials and workmanship when properly installed and used. If HP receives notice of such defects during the warranty period, HP will replace software which does not execute its programming instructions due to such defects.

HP does not warrant that the operation of HP products will be uninterrupted or error free. If HP is unable, within a reasonable time, to repair or replace any product to a condition warranted, you will be entitled to a refund of the purchase price upon prompt return of the product. Alternatively, in the case of HP Software, you will be entitled to a refund of the purchase price upon prompt delivery to HP of written notice from you confirming destruction of the HP Software, together with all copies, adaptations, and merged portions in any form.

Some countries, states, or provinces do not allow limitations on the duration of an implied warranty, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you might also have other rights that vary from country to country, state to state, or province to province.

TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LOCAL LAW, THE REMEDIES IN THIS WARRANTY STATEMENT ARE YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES. EXCEPT AS INDICATED ABOVE, IN NO EVENT WILL HP OR ITS SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE FOR LOSS OF DATA OR FOR DIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL (INCLUDING LOST PROFIT OR DATA), OR OTHER DAMAGE, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE.

Some countries, states, or provinces do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation may not apply to you.

Software Maintenance applies: Yes

Software Maintenance, previously referred to as Software Subscription and Technical Support, is included in the Passport Advantage Agreement.

IBM Electronic Services

IBM Global Services has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to put you on the road to higher systems availability. IBM Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that provides you with an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support on the IBM eServer. You should benefit from greater system availability due to faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. IBM Electronic Services is comprised of two separate but complementary elements: IBM Electronic Services news page and IBM Electronic Service Agent™.

IBM Electronic Services news page provides you with a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used by customers to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The IBM Electronic Service Agent is no-additional charge software that resides on your IBM eServer system. It is designed to proactively monitor events and transmit system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, customer-defined timetable. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tracks system inventory, hardware error logs, and performance information. If the server is under a current IBM maintenance service agreement or within the IBM warranty period, the Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM.

Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to provide proactive service that maintains higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent will be made available to IBM service support representatives when they are helping answer your questions or diagnosing problems.
