Integrating WebSphere MQ with JBoss Enterprise Application Server

Integrating WebSphere MQ with JBoss Enterprise Application Server

Once I worked on a project where in the existing environment I needed to configure the JBoss Enterprise Application Server to communicate with WebSphere MQ where the WebSphere MQ was supposed to be communicating with Mainframe system using cluster queue of WebSphere.  Initially I was blind, as I was not able to understand how I could configure JBoss to communicate with MQ. But after some research, I came to learn that it is possible to integrate JBoss with WebSphere MQ and an application deployed in JBoss can directly put the message in WebSphere MQ.

If you’re very familiar with JBoss and it’s architecture, you can complete this task by creating new subsystem and corresponding extension. Before you start configuring JBoss, you need to install the adaptor of WebSphere MQ in JBoss. One can find the JBoss adaptor from WebSphere MQ library, the file name is wmq.jmsra.rar.

Here are the steps for configuring an application to put the message in WebSphere MQ via JBoss Enterprise Application Server.

Using the operating system to authenticate users on Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) ?

Recently, I was searching for a solution to configure the security domain of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform with the local operating system based user registry so that the application could directly authenticate its users with local operating system users. I understood that it would be difficult to implement a generic solution, as authentication mechanisms are strikingly different between Windows and Unix/Linux.

After checking several blogs and forums, I decided to implement this using JPAM for Unix/Linux and Waffle for Windows.

Editor’s note: JBoss Enterprise Application Platform is available at no cost for developers who sign up for the Red Hat Developer program (100% free.)
