IO04: WebSphere Message Broker - Start/Stop Message Flow Node



This SupportPac supplies a WebSphere Message Broker V6.1 plug-in node that starts/stops a message flow within a user's message flow.

Download Description

These nodes are intended to be used to start and stop a message flow within a user message flow. A developer can add this node in his message flow and can start/stop either a specific message flow or the whole execution group. The target message flow can exist on either a local or remote broker.

Possible Uses
This message flow best suits situations where current assets are required to be controlled dynamically as noted below.

• Batch Process: When all or specific message flow(s) are required to be Stopped/Started so that a batch process can be executed.
• Conditional Processing: Dependant on the successful execution of a specific condition, a message flow is required to be executed. For example, Stop Order Entry Message Flow, if database is down.
• Non-working hours/Off Time implementation: When a service (for example, order management service) is required to be stopped during non-working hours.

Skill Level Required
• Good understanding of WebSphere Message Broker V6.1 message flows development.
• WebSphere Message Broker basic administration skills.
