Ruby and IBM MQ Series


#1

Hi folks!

I’m thinking about doing web development on RoR for my shop, but most of
our clients use the IBM middleware MQSeries.

I can’t find a library to use MQSeries from Ruby. Does such a thing even
exists? Or should I build it myself?

Ideas?

You could probably do bindings to the XMS C api for MQSeries without
a lot of pain.

That doesn’t sound too impresive. I will give it a try.

Hi Juan,

Don’t know if you can still use it, but there is now a complete
implementation of the WebSphere MQ (MQSeries) API available for Ruby.

I have used it extensively in Production migrations and we are also
using it to build a WebSphere MQ monitoring application in Ruby on
Rails.

The download contains several useful samples.
