IBM® MQ Light provides a messaging runtime that developers can install, configure, and use to write applications in just a few minutes. MQ Light aims to enable developers to quickly create scalable and responsive applications. In a typical example, you might have an application that accepts web requests. MQ Light can provide messaging that enables the web request handlers to offload work to worker processes using a queue, so they can return to handle the next request immediately.
MQ Light is designed to reduce the amount of time spent administering messaging resources, so freeing up time to concentrate on the business logic of your application instead. It takes minimal configuration to start MQ Light and to connect your first application. MQ Light uses an API that is designed to be simple to use, providing the basic messaging capabilities that your applications need.
MQ Light provides a convenient deployment process for developers. There is no installer – you just extract the provided
tar.gz file to a chosen directory. No specific permissions are required to install or run MQ Light, so you can install it to a user’s home directory. You can use the ‘start’ command provided to start the messaging runtime environment in a single click.
MQ Light is currently available as a beta.
