This techdoc focuses on the basic usage of clustered queues in WebSphere MQ 7, including how to setup a small MQ cluster with 2 full repositories and 3 partial repositories located in 3 different hosts.
This techdoc provides the details on how to set up a small WebSphere MQ cluster with 2 full repositories and 3 partial repositories located in 3 different hosts. It also provides the details on the basic usage of clustered queues in WebSphere MQ 7.
Scenario 1: It includes the scenario of a local queue that is created in one of the partial repositories, but not yet added to the cluster, and subsequent scenarios are used to explore the behavior of putting and getting a message.
Scenario 2: Then the local queue is added to the cluster and the corresponding scenarios are explored.
The instructions are provided for the MQ Explorer and the runmqsc command.
The chapters are:
Chapter 1: Creating queue managers and setup of MQ Explorer
Chapter 2: Creating a cluster with 2 Full Repositories
Chapter 3: Adding 2 Partial Repositories
Chapter 4: Working with a local queue, not yet a clustered queue
Chapter 5: Working with a queue that was made a clustered queue
