Abstract

Message queuing systems are typically large, and span many different computer systems. The problem of administering such systems in a consistent way increases with the size of the system and the disparity of its components.

Administering Message Queuing (MQ) Systems

   Message queuing systems are typically large, and span many
different computer systems.  The problem of administering such
systems in a consistent way increases with the size of the system
and the disparity of its components.

   The approach described here provides a platform independent
method of capturing the structure of an MQ system using an SGML
(Standard Generalised Markup Language) DTD (Document Type
Definition).  This is supplemented with a number of platform
independent tools, written in Java*, to aid visualisation,
monitoring, and control of an MQ network.

   Following this approach a program written in Java is used to
analyse information about the MQ network and convert it to 'MQML'
using the Java tools MQML2MQSC (and the reverse), MQML2HTML to
provide easy visualisation over the Web, and a Java GUI to
design/monitor an MQ network.
