MQ10 - WebSphere MQ V7 Administration
Duration4 Days (customisation)
Availability

Course Description

The objective of this course is to prepare those who expect to come in to regular contact with WebSphere MQ version 7 or earlier to administer, support, trouble-shoot and tune Service Oriented Architecture applications within the IBM WebSphere MQ (MQ Series) environments.

The course concentrates on the experience of the author and instructor in many different MQ and other middleware engagements, with an emphasis on supportability, maintainability and scalability of MQ based solutions.

There is one optional module with this class, and that is the Multi-Instance Queue Manager made available in MQ 7.0.1.

The facilities of multi-instance queue managers and how they relate to other mechanisms for high-availability are covered, and a lab exercise run to prove the benefits of, and additional overheads caused by multi-instance queue managers.

Pre-requisites

  •    An established understanding of managing computing services.
  •    Understanding of browser use and web technologies.
  •    Grasp of general computing communication principles.
  •    Ability to use a text editor.
  •    Understanding of Java or other programming languages in distributed computing environments is not required.

Objectives

Provide students with the ability to manage, tune and diagnose problems with applications within an MQ 7 (or earlier) environment.

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.
