Growing demand for connectivity between mission critical commercial systems increases need for integration of WebSphere MQ and Tuxedo solutions

Strategic Thought Limited has released the first of its new Active Integrator gateway products, MQ/Tuxedo, providing an XML message based interface between BEA Tuxedo and IBM WebSphere MQ, allowing applications in either environment to initiate communications via the gateway. A key benefit of this Active Integrator product is that it enables communication between the two systems without needing to rewrite code or configure the gateway for each message.

IBM WebSphere MQ message oriented middleware system (MOM) is a robust message queuing software designed to ensure that business data sent from one application is delivered securely to its target, regardless of whether the target is online. BEA Tuxedo is a platform that enables users to be easily connected to new e-business applications and data on existing legacy systems.

“Many customers want to integrate their mission critical Tuxedo applications into the transactional layer of their evolving business and IBM WebSphere MQ messaging middleware is the largest player in the market that can do this. With Active Integrator we have the unique capability to enable Tuxedo integration to MQ seamlessly,” said Richard Higgs, managing director of Strategic Thought.

“As more customers look to further develop and deploy transactional applications over the web, so we can also then assist further with IBM WebSphere ” he continued.

Earlier this year Strategic Thought was nominated by IBM as European partner of the year for innovation and technical quality. WebSphere MQ, WebSphere MQ Integrator, WebSphere Process Manager and WebSphere Commerce Suite are core competencies for the company, which works closely with the development teams at IBM Hursley.

Active Integrator – MQ/Tuxedo is currently available on NT and Solaris, has been tested on AIX and can be provided on other platforms running Tuxedo and MQ.

A second Active Integrator product will also be released shortly, MQ/File Adapter, which offers the ability to transport files from point to point using the secure and assured delivery mechanism of IBM WebSphere MQ. This is the natural evolution of FTP file transfer and will not only enable customers to benefit from the increased control over the file transfer process, but also achieves a much closer step towards the goal of implementing an infrastructure based entirely on message based middleware.
