Websphere MQ, formerly known as MQ (message queue) series, is an IBM standard for program-to-program messaging across multiple platforms. Websphere MQ is sometimes referred to as message-oriented middleware (MOM). Queue Manager: a system service that provides a logical container for the message queue. It is responsible for transferring data to other queue managers via message channels. Although not strictly required for message-oriented middleware, is an IBM MQ prerequisite.
What is IBM WebSphere MQ?
IBM WebSphere MQ is messaging for applications. It sends messages across networks of diverse components. Your application connects to IBM WebSphere MQ to send or receive a message. IBM WebSphere MQ handles the different processors, operating systems, subsystems, and communication protocols it encounters in transferring the message. If a connection or a processor is temporarily unavailable, IBM WebSphere MQ queues the message and forwards it when the connection is back online. An application has a choice of programming interfaces, and programming languages to connect to IBM WebSphere MQ. IBM WebSphere MQ is messaging and queuing middleware, with point-to-point, publish/subscribe, and file transfer modes of operation. Applications can publish messages to many subscribers over multicast.
What can it do for me?
IBM WebSphere MQ sends and receives data between your applications, and over networks.
Message delivery is assured and decoupled from the application. Assured, because IBM WebSphere MQ exchanges messages transactionally, and decoupled, because applications do not have to check that messages they sent are delivered safely. You can secure message delivery between queue managers with SSL/TLS.
With Advanced Message Security (AMS), you can encrypt and sign messages between being put by one application and retrieved by another. Application programmers do not need to have communications programming knowledge.
