Subject RE: ActiveMQ integration with WebSphere MQ
Date Tue, 31 May 2011 20:29:06 GMT
Sorry - I didn't mean to introduce yet more confusion, I was just wanting to
encourage good practice/caution. There's no need for this to open any holes,
there are ways of securing a SVRCONN channel via e.g. SSL - this is fine in
native WMQ but I don't know whether the ActiveMQ bridging piece can deal
with that. I assume so since it looks like it is just using the
MQQueueConnectionFactory from the IBM WMQ JMS classes and that can deal with
SSL. You can also use the WMQ Object Authority Manager to restrict the
permissions of the connecting user. This is all
in the WMQ docs  online.

OK so in that case I can't see how you can get away without having a WMQ
Queue Manager (messaging server) right next to your app and doing
server<->server comms to theirs. I'm willing to be proven wrong by another
member of the community here.

We're certainly a bit off-base for this list - you might find helpful peer
support at  if you want to discuss
the product further, I was just trying to help - apologies to anyone if the
discussion has swerved away from AMQ specifics.
