Course Objectives

The course is delivered at the latest release level and regularly updated to include any new features.  Previous release levels are available on request. The course will enable delegates to develop the skills needed to design and write programs that issue calls to the Message Queue Interface (MQI). The hands on exercises will give delegates practice of coding WebSphereMQ calls in COBOL, PL1, RPG, C, C++, C#, .Net or Java. The operating system platform can be either Windows, Linux, UNIX, iSeries or z/OS using WebSphereMQ.   The course is also ideal in preparing delegates for the IBM WebSphere MQ exams.

On completion of the course delegates will be able to:

  • Describe and use the Message Queue Interface.
  • Design and write programs to use MQI as implemented on their chosen platform.
  • Explain the differences in program design necessitated by the messaging and queuing paradigm.
  • Describe, in detail, the different MQI calls. 
  • Explain the differences in MQI across the different WebSphereMQ platforms.
  • Design and write programs that use the advanced features of the MQI including security, message groups, segmentation and distribution.
