One of the things we've been working on for the last few months here in MQ development in Hursley is the latest version of MQ virtual application pattern - V188.8.131.52 of the IBM Messaging Extension for Web Application Pattern - so I'm delighted to say that we released it today.
Take a look at this post tor an introduction to the pattern. The full details about the latest update are in the announcement letter but here's a quick summary of the highlights :
- We've added support for AIX so you can now deploy the Messaging Extension in the new IBM POWER Pure Application System W1700 and in IWD PowerVM cloud groups.
- To make it easier to import existing JMS applications into Web Application patterns we've added support for more types of references in EAR and WAR file deployment descriptor. Specifically this means that we now support JMS 1.0.2 style domain-specific ConnectionFactory objects (QueueConnection Factory and TopicConnectionFactory).
- We've updated the embedded version of MQ to V184.108.40.206 .
The updated patterntype is available from the PureSystems Centre , Passport Advantage, or Fix Central (search for program number 5725-G55).
