IC72: WebSphere BI Brokers- Sample Control Center Security Exits

Downloadable files


This SupportPac provides the source code for a pair of exit programs which provide an example of how to code a client and server exit program to verify Control Center users.

Download Description

In WebSphere MQ Integrator V2.1, function was introduced to enable verification of Control Center users through the use of MQSeries security exits on the MQ Connection, between the Control Center and configuration manager queue manager.

The security exit programs are user written programs which should be written to work as a pair:
» a client exit program enabled at the Control Center (written in Java)
» a server exit program enabled at the configuration manager queue manager (written in C).

This SupportPac provides the source code for a pair of exit programs which provide an example of how to code a client and server exit program to verify Control Center users. The client exit program prompts the Control Center user for a password, then sends the userid/password to the queue manager exit to verify with Microsoft Windows NT - if they are verified, the MCAUser field (if blank) is set to this userid. If not, the channel is closed and the Control Center user fails to connect to the configuration manager. The programs are written to implement the MQ security exit interface and also provide examples of using this interface to:

» send and receive data between exits
» set exit response codes
» set the MCAUser field in the MQ Connection
» store and retrieve data in the exit program's own storage area

The sample exit programs could be compiled and used as they are, or they could be used as a basis on which to develop your own exit programs, which meet your specific requirements.

Users should be familiar with WebSphere MQ Integrator, MQSeries, Java and C.
