  • 1.  Using IBM MQ for T24 OFS msgs between Presentation Tier & Application Tier

    Posted 15 days ago
    Hello MQ Forum users,

    We are considering of proposing MQ as the msg transportation mechanism of Temenos T24 OFS msg between Presentation tier (Application Server for UI) and Application tier (T24 App Server).
    Given that both Application Server technologies (Presentation Tier) IBM WAS & JBOSS are being used inside Bank's IT infra is there a recommendation about the preferrable App Server technology to be used in the context of message queueing?
    As far as I know, Temenos  (T24) provides two architectural options related to OFS msgs handling  : 1. The Agent Architecture  2. The JMS Architecture.
    Considering the typical T24 msg flow (client http request/response -> T24 browser jremote xml request/response ->  T24 App Server  jbase agent, could anyone suggest the most efficient way to develop and perform  the msg flow connection request programmatically?
    For instance, how about using IBM WAS Connection factory sources or instead using MQ JMS classes in pure java code?

    Any advice or technical reference will be much appreciated.
    Thanks in advance,
    Cheers, Nick.

    Hi Nick,

    That's an architectural decision only you can make. I see however that you are leaning in both cases towards JMS (WAS or stand alone) and I was going to suggest that.
    The patterns are well known as well as the connection pooling.
    Make sure in both cases to correctly calculate the max number of connections needed, give some buffer to even out spikes and let us know how you fared.

    Hi Francois,

    Thanks for your reply.
    After meeting with Temenos it was decided to proceed with MQ at msg transportation layer and WAS at both tiers Presentation and Application (WAS ND for HA)   

    Cheers,Nick.
