IBM MQ Adapter

The IBM® MQ adapter works with IBM® MQ to accomplish the task of maintaining data compatibility, handling all kinds of data transformations from the simplest to the most complex.

The IBM® MQ adapter can be used at either the source or target application, or at both. There is an adapter for IBM® MQ client software and an adapter for IBM® MQ server software.

IBM® MQ software transports data between applications. For the receiving application to be able to successfully use data, the data must be transformed. IBM® MQ can successfully move data in heterogeneous computer networks, allowing systems of dissimilar computers to move data to and from each other. Although data successfully arrives at a target, it often cannot be used in its native form and must be transformed into a format acceptable for the receiving application's use.
