Downloadable files


Abstract

This is a set of Eclipse features which can be used to generate and consume messages on a queue and topic.

Download Description

The Dashboard features can be used to extend the WebSphere MQ Explorer or run in their own Eclipse. The Queue Dashboard allows messages to be generated (PUT) on a queue and consumed (GET) from the queue. The message rates can be viewed graphically in various formats.

The Topic Dashboard allows messages to be published (PUB) on a topic and subscribers to receive (GET) publications on a topic. Initially each Topic Dashboard has one publisher and four subscribers, and further subscribers can be started. The message rates can be viewed graphically in various formats.

The QDepth feature is a very simple extension to the WebSphere MQ Explorer to display the current queue depth of a selected queue.

Possible Uses
The Queue Dashboard feature can be used as an education tool, and for an application developer or performance tester to generate, watch and trigger event activity on a selected queue.

The Topic Dashboard feature can be used as an education tool, and for an application developer or performance tester to generate, watch activity on a selected topic and test topic wildcarding.

The QDepth feature can be used to display the current queue depth of one or more queues.
