Creating transports for WebSphere® MQ

To record interactions with IBM® WebSphere® MQ, you must set up transports to provide information about the infrastructure of these systems. HCL OneTest API uses a decoupled, plug-in architecture to provide maximum flexibility for the messaging transport software in use by a system under test.

Before you begin: Set up IBM® WebSphere® MQ and install the HRVMMQF Exits as described in Setting up IBM WebSphere MQ and installing the HRVMMQF Exits.

A messaging transport provides the information that HCL OneTest API needs to communicate with applications. The program code for each transport is contained in one or more JAR files (libraries), which are stored in HCL OneTest API plug-ins directory. Any libraries upon which these plug-ins depend must be accessible to HCL OneTest API. The JAR files are in the installation directories of the installed products. You must configure JAR files to support transports for IBM® WebSphere® MQ. To configure these third-party libraries, use Library Manager (see Working with Library Manager).

You can test system Z applications for WebSphere® MQ on z/OS because HCL OneTest API uses the same JAR files as WebSphere® MQ on distributed systems. If you do not have MQ installed, see HCL OneTest API reference for WebSphere® MQ for configuration instructions.

For information about setting up these components, see Creating a service component. For information about setting up WebSphere® MQ transports in HCL OneTest API, see Configuring WebSphere MQ transports.
