WM101VN- Technical Introduction To IBM WebSphere MQ

An updated version of this course is available. For more information, click Technical Introduction to IBM MQ (WM102)

This 1-day instructor-led course is a technical overview of IBM WebSphere MQ. It provides a conceptual understanding of messaging and queuing as implemented by IBM WebSphere MQ.

IBM WebSphere MQ delivers reliable application integration for applications and web services, allowing users to fully leverage existing software and hardware investments. Through a series of lectures, students learn how IBM WebSphere MQ provides a messaging backbone for deploying an enterprise service bus (ESB) as the connectivity layer of a service-oriented architecture (SOA). The course also explains how IBM WebSphere MQ responsibilities can include the management of topic-based publish/subscription information.

There are no lab exercises in this course; students confirm their learning through checkpoint questions.
