Rather surprised to discover that developerWorks had published my article on Grouping messages using the WebSphere MQ Java and JMS APIs given that the last time I had seen it was when I submitted a first draft! Managed to persuade them to correct some of the more glaring errors that were introduced during the editorial process. I guess I’ll just have to put up with the revised writing style.
The article looks at subject of message groups with WebSphere MQ showing how messages can be grouped using the WebSphere MQ Java API to ensure logically related messages are received at the same physical location and in the correct order. The article then goes on to show how you can replicate this same behaviour using the WebSphere MQ JMS API (albeit less efficiently) and, in particular, how to receive message groups in an application server environment.
