Duration: 1 Day

Method: Instructor led, Lecture

Price: $600.00

Course Code: MQ1010


This course is intended for information systems personnel at all levels, including both applications and systems development personnel and their management.


This course is designed to provide the skills necessary to determine the feasibility for using Message Queuing in implementation of application systems. A complete look at the features and facilities provided by the various MQI products will be provided. Upon completion of this introductory course, the student should be able to understand how MQ might impact application systems within their enterprise. General design of program-to-program facilities will be compared to MQ to provide a basis for choice between the methods.


Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Provide the knowledge base for implementation of message queuing application systems or to provide general support of those systems.
  • Describe the key related features and facilities available within IBM MQ and the MQI.
  • Describe, explain and understand the various queue and message styles used in message queuing.
  • Gain a basic knowledge of the recovery, and system management facilities provided.


It is highly recommended that students have the following knowledge and skills: Introduction to Client/Server course (or equivalent knowledge) and have at least a general knowledge of operating system environments in use.
