Course Description

The course is aimed at developers providing the basic skills of designing and writing application programs which issue calls to the Message Queuing Interface (MQI). The course is aimed at experienced applications developers who need to develop programs which use WebSphere MQ messaging techniques.

Pre-requisites

A basic understanding of the concepts of WebSphere MQ message queuing. This can be gained by attending course MQ01.

Objectives

Whilst covering the basics of WebSphere MQ, this course also aims to give an insight into the programming and issuing calls to the Message Queuing Interface.

On completion of this course the student will be able to:

  • Understand and use the Message Queuing Interface
  • Understand and use Message Handling
  • Understand and use Queue and Message Attributes
  • Understand and use MQI calls and the MQI Options
  • Understand and use transactions
  • Understand and use triggers

Environment

This course can be taught using a choice of program language - please phone for more details.

Customisation

For on-site courses (i.e. at your premises), we are more than happy to tailor the course agenda to suit your exact requirements. In many cases, we are able to build your in-house standards and naming conventions into the delivered course.

Course Format

Demonstration sessions and practicals make up a large part of the course, allowing delegates to reinforce the lectures given. During these sessions the delegate will gain experience of WebSphere MQ, specifically MQI.

Examples are used extensively, ranging from simple code snippets to full applications with complete ‘real world’ functionality. These are supplied at the start of the course and it is encouraged that the delegates execute and ‘experiment’ with these under the instructor’s guidance as they are introduced.

These examples are available to take away, along with the delegate’s own work.

The comprehensive Student Guide supplied is fully indexed serving as a useful reference tool long after the course has finished. Delegates will also be able to access a free help-line with technical questions relating to topics covered on the course.
