WM501: IBM WebSphere MQ V7 Application Development (Windows Labs)

DURATION: 3 days

SCHEDULED DATES: TBD – Contact Us for more Information


This 3-day instructor-led intermediate course teaches technical professionals how to design and write business programs using WebSphere MQ.

In this course, students learn how to issue calls that utilize the WebSphere MQ API (MQI), and how to code and use calls to perform various functions, such as opening and closing queues and putting messages on or retrieving messages from a queue. Students also learn other important topics such as controlling message retrieval, writing programs that change queue attributes, handling MQI security, and managing message channels.

Hands-on lab exercises give students the opportunity to practice coding WebSphere MQ calls in either COBOL or C using WebSphere MQ V7.

This course can also help students prepare for certification as a WebSphere MQ solutions designer.


This is an intermediate course designed for experienced business application programmers who need to develop applications that use the messaging and queuing techniques supported by the WebSphere MQ API (MQI).


Students should:

– Complete course Technical Introduction to WebSphere MQ (WM100) or (VM100)
– Have a basic understanding of the messaging and queuing model and how the model is implemented in WebSphere MQ

Students should also have experience with designing business application programs and developing application programs in one of the procedural programming languages supported by WebSphere MQ.


After completing this course, students should be able to:

– Describe and use the MQI
– Design and write programs that use the MQI as implemented on Windows, AIX, or z/OS
– Explain the differences in program design necessitated by the messaging and queuing paradigm
– Describe MQI calls in detail
– Explain the differences in using the MQI across the different WebSphere MQ platforms
– Design and write programs that use the following advanced features of the MQI: Security
– Message groups and segmentation
– Distribution lists
