System Requirements for WebSphere MQ V7.0/7.0.1 on Linux for System x (64-bit)
System Requirements WebSphere MQ Linux V7.0 requirement requirement requirements requirements; SystemRequirementsDocument ; DSRdoc
This document contains the system requirements for WebSphere MQ V7.0 on Linux for System x (64-bit).
|Please read first||
|For C/C++ applications||
|For COBOL applications||
|For Java™ applications using the WebSphere MQ classes for Java or JMS||32-bit:
|Transactions Managers||Using the WebSphere MQ classes for JMS, WebSphere MQ can only act in the role of a Resource Manager. A 3rd party Transaction Coordinator must be used, for example WebSphere Application Server.
Using the WebSphere MQ classes for Java, WebSphere MQ can act as a Transaction Coordinator. However it is not possible to participate in a JTA style transaction.
The WebSphere MQ V7 Queue Manager can participate as a Resource Manager with the following Transaction Coordinators:
|Application Servers||Where a WebSphere MQ client application is running in one of the listed transaction manager environments, it is recommended that you contact the transaction manager vendor in the first instance for support.
WebSphere MQ V7 Java Messaging is supported for use within the following application servers [see section note 4]:
|Resource Managers (when MQ is the Transaction Manager)||
Refer to the Cryptography Card List for WebSphere MQ v6 and v7 document for further information.
|Supported browsers for the WebSphere MQ information center||
|Supported application servers for the WebSphere MQ Bridge for HTTP||
|Multi-instance queue manager||WebSphere MQ V7.0.1 introduces Multi-instance queue managers. For this you will need a networked storage device (such as a NAS). The storage must be accessed by a network file system protocol which is Posix-compliant and supports lease-based locking. Network File System version 4 (NFS v4) and IBM's General Parallel File System (GPFS) both satisfy this requirement. Please note that earlier versions of NFS do NOT satisfy this requirement and must not be used with multi-instance queue managers.
