IBM WebSphere MQ Adapter

Provides an adapter to use IBM WebSphere MQ (external site, English) with the MOM messaging function of Nablarch .

Refer to the official Website and manuals of IBM Corporation for the specifications and construction procedures of WebSphere MQ.

Module list



For WebSphere MQ jars, refer to the product manual and add those that are required to the class path. The library included with WebSphere MQ v7.5 is used for testing. When changing the version, test in the project to confirm that there are no problems.

Configuration for using this adapter

The adapter is enabled by defining components with the following procedure.

  1. Add the definition of nablarch.integration.messaging.wmq.provider.WmqMessagingProvider to the component configuration file.
  2. Configure WmqMessagingProvider configured in 1 to Messaging Context Management Handler .

A configuration example is shown below.

<!-- Provider implementation for IBM WebSphere MQ Adapter- -->
<component name="wmqMessagingProvider"
  <!-- See Javadoc for configuration value-->

Message context management handler

Configure WmqMessagingProvider defined above in messagingProvider property.
<component class="nablarch.fw.messaging.handler.MessagingContextHandler">
  <property name="messagingProvider" ref="wmqMessagingProvider" />

Use distributed transaction

This adapter includes a function to realize distributed transactions using IBM WebSphere MQ as the transaction manager.

This function is used to prevent omission and duplicate capture when sending and receiving messages to and from external systems.

The procedure for using distributed transaction is shown below.

  1. Define a data source (class that implements javax.sql.XADataSource ) that supports distributed transactions.
  2. Define a factory class to generate a database connection to support the distributed transaction.
    (Define nablarch.integration.messaging.wmq.xa.WmqXADbConnectionFactoryForXADataSource .)
  3. Configure the factory class defined in 2 to Database Connection Management Handler .
  4. Define a factory class to generate transaction objects for distributed transactions.
    (Define nablarch.integration.messaging.wmq.xa.WmqXATransactionFactory .)
  5. Configure the factory class defined in 4 to Transaction Control Handler .

A configuration example is shown below.

Configuration of data source for XA
Configure the XA data source in the JDBC implementation of the database product to be used.

In this example, the configuration is for an Oracle database.
<component name="xaDataSource" class="oracle.jdbc.xa.client.OracleXADataSource">
  <!-- Configuration of property is omitted -->

<!-- Configuration of class to generate XA database connection -->
<component name="xaConnectionFactory"

  <!-- Configure XA data source in xaDataSource property.-->
  <property name="xaDataSource" ref="xaDataSource" />

  <!-- Properties other than the above are omitted -->

<!-- Configure DB connection handler for distributed transaction -->
<component class="nablarch.common.handler.DbConnectionManagementHandler">
  <!-- Configure the class that generates the database connection for XA configured above in the DB connection factory. -->
  <property name="connectionFactory" ref="xaConnectionFactory" />

  <!-- Properties other than the above are omitted -->

<!-- Configuration of class that generates XA transaction control object -->
<component name="xaTransactionFactory"
    class="nablarch.integration.messaging.wmq.xa.WmqXATransactionFactory" />

<!-- Configure transaction handler for distributed transaction -->
<component class="nablarch.common.handler.TransactionManagementHandler">
  <!-- Configure a class that generates the XA transaction control object
  configured above in the transaction factory.
  <property name="transactionFactory" ref="xaTransactionFactory" />

  <!-- Properties other than the above are omitted -->


For using distributed transactions, an XA resource manager has to be configured for WebSphere MQ and authority to the database has to be granted. Refer to the manual of the product to be used for the detailed configuration method and necessary authority.
