Technical introduction to IBM MQ

This course provides a sound introduction to (and understanding of) IBM's MQ (formerly WebSphere MQ and before that, MQSeries) messaging system, at both a conceptual and terminological level, and is essential for all personnel who will be working in an IBM MQ environment. This course is appropriate for both the z/OS and multi-platform environments.

On successful completion of this course attendees will be able to:

  • understand the concepts of Queues, Queue Managers and MQ messages
  • describe IBM MQ program design considerations and the MQI
  • explain triggering, syncpoints and message grouping and segmentation
  • discuss Distributed Queuing enablement
  • understand and describe Clustering.
