Summary:  WebSphere Message Broker V8 introduces the new record and replay feature, which lets you record and view messages for audit or problem determination purposes, and replay them after problem resolution or other downtime issues. This tutorial shows you how to use event monitoring to emit a message from a flow, how to configure record and replay, and how to use the new web UI to view messages that you have recorded and replay them to a WebSphere MQ queue.

Setting up the DataCaptureSource on your broker

  1. You now need to configure the broker to listen for monitoring events being emitted from the flow that you have deployed. The test message you sent has been published, but no one was subscribed to the published topic, so the messages were not received anywhere. So you need to set up a DataCaptureSource to specify a topic to listen to messages from, and a Record and Replay database connection (previously defined as a DataCaptureStore) to send the captured messages to: DataCaptureSource
  2. While you are using Message Broker Explorer, you can also set up your INQ DataDestination, which will then become a queue to which you can replay messages through the Web Administration: DataDestination
  3. Here are the three deployed configurable services in Message Broker Explorer to configure Record and Replay: Deployed CS

Now you are ready to send some messages through and view them within the Web Administration.
