    Hi DevTest Community, anyone had virtualize a service against an IBM MQ running at AS400 system?.

     

    Is the same when IBM MQ run on Windows or there is something in configure to take care?

    Have you tried to record?  Are you seeing any issues?  

    What version of DevTest are you using?

    Hi Shaney not yet.
    I'm checking some details about client requirements and i´m testing right now for IBM MQ at Windows Server but i have this doubt because i´m not expert in IBM MQ and don´t know if is the same configure and behavior in AS400 like in Windows.

    In a few weeks i can start and try but till so is for check.

    Generally, MQ is MQ, regardless of the platform on which it's running. Therefore, we can virtualise queue responses that are in MQ on the AS/400.

     

    The main thing to watch out for is queue security, if it's enabled. Being an IBM system, there's a chance that an IBM-specific cipher suite is being used. If this is the case, it'll either need to be changed to a cipher suite that's supported by all JDKs, or the whole of DevTest will need to be attached to an IBM JDK (which isn't downloadable from IBM for Windows, so it becomes a pain to implement).
