The Solace PubSub+ Connector for IBM MQ bridges data between the Solace PubSub+ Event Broker and IBM MQ providing a flexible and efficient way to integrate IBM MQ application data with your Solace-backed, event-driven architecture and the Event Mesh. The connector uses IBM MQ Classes for JMS to connect to MQ Queue Managers and access their endpoints and makes use of MQ-specific features as exposed via the MQ Classes for JMS.
This 2-way integration is configured via “workflows” in your connector instance. A workflow is a source-to-processing-to-target data pipeline configured within the connector runtime. Each workflow (you can have up to 20 defined per connector instance), defines a source (e.g. PubSub+ queue), any header processing necessary for the target, and a target destination (e.g. an IBM MQ Queue Manager queue/topic). When active, events will stream across these Workflows.
The connector is available (below) as:
The PubSub+ Connector for IBM MQ is a “self-contained connector” from Solace. All self-contained connectors share a common architecture and provide a number of enterprise services to the connectors such as:
