Overview of this book

As an administrator you need a secure, scalable, resilient application infrastructure to support the developers building and managing J2EE applications and Service Oriented Architecture services. WebSphere application server, a product from IBM, is optimized to ease administration and improve runtime performance. It helps you run applications and services in a reliable, secure, and high-performance environment to ensure business opportunities are not lost due to application downtime. It's easy to get started and tame this powerful application server when you've got this book to hand. This administration guide will help you provide an innovative, performance-based foundation to build, run, and manage J2EE applications and SOA services, offering the highest level of reliability, security, and scalability. This book will take you through the different methods for installing WebSphere application server and demonstrate how to configure and prepare WebSphere resources for your application deployments. During configuration you will be shown how to administer your WebSphere server standalone or using the new administrative agent, which provides the ability to administer multiple installations of WebSphere application server using one single administration console. WebSphere security is covered in detail showing the various methods of implanting federated user and group repositories. The facets of data-aware and message-aware applications are explained and demonstrated giving the reader real-world examples of manual and automated deployments. Key administration features and tools are introduced, which will help a WebSphere administrator manage and tune their WebSphere implementation and application for success.

In this chapter, we learned that WebSphere provides a level of abstraction to messaging configuration by allowing resources to be referenced by JNDI. We deployed a message-enabled application which required a queue connection factory and queue destination which it used to send and receive messages. We configured two different implementations of JMS. One implementation used the internal Default Messaging Provider, which required a SIB to be created, and we covered how to create the QCF and queue destinations and bound the applications resource references to those configured in WebSphere.

We then covered how to install WebSphere MQ and learned how to create a queue manager and a queue. Then, in WebSphere, we created a QCF and queue destination using the WebSphere MQ provider and demonstrated how to to re-map our applications resource references to re-point the application to use MQ messaging subsystem as opposed to the internal messaging subsystem.

There are many uses of messaging in...
