    Hi 

    DataPower doesn't provide an interface to MSMQ, although it does provide interfaces to IBM MQ and some JMS providers (WebSphere JMS and Tibco EMS - requires a paid feature). It also provides interfaces for AMQP, and Kafka.

    You may be able to buy a bridge from IBM MQ or one of the other messaging products to forward messages to/from MSMQ, or you could build your own bridge. Watch out for persistence and reliability issues whether you buy or build. There used to be products that could do this, but with MSMQ not being on the forward path for .Net I couldn't find any that still looked viable.

    I couldn't find anything that would indicate that MSMQ natively provides an API (REST or SOAP for example) that permit interaction directly with MSMQ. You would need to write (or buy) an application that could support that so that DataPower could use a REST or SOAP API request to put or get messages without a bridge from another messaging provider.

    Thank you for the inputs , we are going down the path of creating a bridge to get the msg using Java and creating a front end handler Datapower (https) to post the msg

    Neil 

    when we configure rabbitMq with amqp after few msg proceeded we see the handler is down, any specific way we need to configure to ensure the front end handler in up all the time 

    thank you

    Sorry Vedavyas,

    I haven't used AMQP with DataPower. I just noted that it was one of the available protocols. However, you should note that DataPower supports AMQP v1.0, whereas RabbitMQ natively supports the very different AMQP 0.9.1 and only provides AMQP 1.0 support through a plug-in.

    Good luck with your mission.

    Neil, want to conclude the thread. utilizing AMQP 1.0 worked with rabbit MQ. For the Microsoft MQ we had to write a VB.net program to read and write messages to MSMQ which is exposed as API to send the recipe messages. we used the data power gateway API end point for the integration and made it work
