Nastel - Running Multiple Versions and Taking Advantage of WebSphere MQ 7.1 and 7.5
4/26/2013 9:04:34 AM
Since IBM released two versions of WebSphere MQ in close proximity to each other, it is important to understand how to best utilize the benefits of both versions and how to get them to work together with previous versions. This white paper will give you a better understanding of how to get them to all get along.
In the Overview white paper, we discussed the key highlights of multiple version support for WebSphere MQ 7.1 and 7.5. In this paper, we are going to go into more detail. Let’s review the meaning of coexistence multiple installatioon. The key component is that you can install multiple versions of WebSphere MQ on the same server at the same time. This is something that you could not do in the past.
Nastel - Issues and Considerations in Deploying and Managing WebSphere MQ
4/26/2013 9:02:53 AM
WebSphere MQ was developed in the early 1990’s to fill a need in many applications for Asynchronous Application to Application Communication. This concept is still a primary requirement of many applications, including Service Oriented Architecture and Cloud computing. Much like email provides asynchronous communication between individuals, WebSphere MQ provided the ability for applications on disparate platforms to communicate easier than ever before, even across companies. Many applications were designed to leverage the wealth of data stored on legacy systems without needing to rewrite the interfaces to that data or to disperse it to multiple systems.
Nastel - Introduction to WebSphere MQ 7.1 and 7.5
4/26/2013 9:02:04 AM

This paper reviews and summarizes the highlights of the recent releases of IBM’s WebSphere MQ 7.1 and 7.5. It is the first in a series of papers around the current changes in WebSphere MQ.
Nastel - Demystifying Middleware for DevOps
4/26/2013 9:01:10 AM
DevOps is a hot topic right now, and for good reason. Today’s application environments have become far too complex to deploy and manage with silo teams and stand-alone tools. Instead, they require coordination and collaboration across virtually all silos, and this is typically accomplished with teams of senior specialists with skill sets spanning Development and Operations. Tools play a key role in DevOps, as the right tools can be a bridge supplying a “common language” across teams with diverse skillsets and “technology languages.”
Nastel - A Unified View Across WebSphere DataPower and MQ, Solace and TIBCO Messaging
4/26/2013 9:00:16 AM
The complexity of one management system per messaging infrastructure is too costly and when these infrastructures are interconnected, the management systems become ineffective. These firms require one place to monitor, visualize and analyze the status of applications and services shared across the enterprise environment. However, the skill set required to manage each middleware technology is often different and a single business flow can traverse multiple different transports and support teams. This makes unified monitoring of messages across the infrastructure and the ability to track them and rapidly identify and correct problems anywhere in that flow an essential element in improving service and reducing cost—perhaps, even a necessity for survival
