  Utilising IBM's MQSeries* Everyplace* Queueing/messaging interface to provide remote access to the filing system on pervasive devices

An example use of the queueing/messaging interface of a messaging
product, such as IBM's MQSeries Everyplace (MQe), is disclosed.

     A descendent of the MQeQueue class can be constructed such
that the getMessage, putMessage, browseMessage and deleteMessage
method calls can be mapped to perform read file, write file, list
files and delete files respectively. In otherwords giving access
to the filling system on a pervasive device and also giving a
pervasive device access to server files in a platform neutral
way.

     Alternative approaches require for example FTP servers,
Netbeui remote access.

     Some pervasive devices do not have this capability.
This solution allows access to any pervasive that is capable
of running MQe.

     Access control is handled by the security mechanisms of the
MQeQueue and Queue manager i.e. only the correct people have
access to the files or directories.
