Q:

What exactly do you understand by message broker??

A: A Message Broker is an intermediary program that helps communicating multiple system to each other by transforming, routing the messages in the way they need.

Q:

What is the difference between Message Broker and MQ?

A:

WebSphere MQ facilitates communication between applications by sending and receiving message data via messaging queues. WebSphere MQ provides a secure and reliable layer of transport for moving data unchanged in the form of messages between applications but it is not aware of the content of the messages.

WebSphere Message Broker is built to extend WebSphere MQ, and it is capable of understanding the content of each message that it moves through the Broker. Message Broker can do the following:

  • Matches and routes communications between services
  • Converts between different transport protocols
  • Transforms message formats between requestor and service
  • Identifies and distributes business events from disparate sources.

What are the advantages of using Websphere message broker?

A: Websphere message broker provides services, based on message brokers to allow you to:
  • Route a message to several destinations, using rules that act on the contents of one or more of the fields in the message or message header.
  • Transform a message, so that applications using different formats can exchange messages in their own formats.
  • Store a message, or part of a message, in a database.
  • Retrieve a message, or part of a message, from a database.
  • Modify the contents of a message; for example, by adding data extracted from a database.
