Here's an infocenter that would help developers and architects who need to integrate WebSphere Application Server (WAS) and WebSphere MQ (WMQ). In several messaging scenarios the application server needs to communicate with queue manager. It does require some setup at both the ends to ensure that applications on WebSphere application server interact seamlessly with back-end applications. Here is the link:http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/prodconn/v1r0m0/topic/com.ibm.scenarios.wmqwasusing.doc/topics/scenario_overview.htm
It contains 5 sections that address all your needs for integration:
- Monitoring and Performance
It covers 6.1, 7.0, 8.0 and 8.5 versions of WebSphere Application Server.
