IBM WebSphere MQ V7.5 Application Development ( z/OS for labs)


Course Description


Overview

This course teaches technical professionals how to design and write business programs using WebSphere MQ. In this course, students learn how to issue calls that utilize the WebSphere MQ API (MQI), and how to code and use calls to perform various functions, such as opening and closing queues and putting messages on or retrieving messages from a queue. Students also learn other important topics such as controlling message retrieval, writing programs that change queue attributes, handling MQI security, and managing message channels. Hands-on lab exercises give students the opportunity to practice coding WebSphere MQ calls in either COBOL or C using WebSphere MQ V7.  

Audience

This is an intermediate course designed for experienced business application programmers who need to develop applications that use the messaging and queuing techniques supported by the WebSphere MQ API (MQI).
