Subject Re: ActiveMQ integration with WebSphere MQ
Date Tue, 31 May 2011 13:55:23 GMT
Indeed not - WebSphere MQ predates many of the other MOM technologies around
and the sender/receiver channel can talk to other WMQ implementations at
different versions, but not to ActiveMQ.

On your comment about standards, bear in mind that JMS is an API spec and
not a protocol / implementation thing. It defines the API calls and objects
that the provider must expose and support, but it says absolutely nothing
about how that API interacts with the messaging fabric.

There are a range of things you could do, including some bridge code which
can talk WMQ JMS over the network using the WMQ "client" connection option,
or (thinking outside the box) using the HTTP bridge to WMQ if the other
server has it installed, and using a REST call to poke the message into the
queue on that side. I guess none of these are quite what you are looking for
out of the box. An IBM solution (which I suspect your client may not be keen
on) would be to use something like WebSphere Message Broker to bridge
between ActiveMQ JMS, and WebSphere MQ either JMS or natively.

There's a great independent WMQ community over at  if you want to see if any other users have ideas.

(disclaimer: I work for IBM but these are my own ideas and opinions!)
