BizTalk Server 2009 and IBM WebSphere MQ 7.0.1.2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all, I intend to run BizTalk Server 2009 on Windows Server 2008 R2 and IBM WebSphere MQ 7.0.1.2 all on the same server. Would you please provide me a link to a documentation how I can configure BizTalk to work with the IBM MQ Series? Thanks a lot in advance!

  • Here you can find the documentation about the MQSeries adapter: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa547973(BTS.70).aspx

    Although it's for BizTalk 2010 you can use this articles to understand how to connect BizTalk to MQSeries and how to handle transactions etc.

  • Hi Greg11,

    In addition to the Link provided by Oliver, the below link might be useful for you to connect BizTalk Server with IBM MQSeries.

  • Under the link you have mentioned I have found a note which suggest it was not recommended to install the MQSAgent on a 64-bit Windows Server(which 2008 R2 is).

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa561858%28v=BTS.70%29.aspx

     

    What is your take on that? Should I just stick to a 32-bit Windows Server 2008 for BizTalk and Windows Server 2008 R2 for the WebSphere?

  • Personally I would prefer running BizTalk on a x64 environment and install the MSQAgent part on a second server that runs under 32bit - if possible. Run Biztalk under 64 bit has many advantages if it comes to memory issues etc.

    If it's not possible I would use a 32bit 2008 Server for BizTalk and MQSeries on one host.

    If you want to combine BizTalk with AppFabric use 2008 oder 2008R2 as AppFabric needs IIS7.

    If you are running BizTalk 2009 I would prefer a Win2k3SP2x64 server as it's the most simple one. But this is in extended maintenance. That means you will get 5 more years of patches and security fixes but no new features added.

  • Do you think the follwing Article could provide a solution despite having BizTalk 2009 instead of the version 2006?

  • This forum post says yes: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/biztalkr2adapters/thread/2084585e-bb56-47d2-96c3-149882cc008e

    And as there is no version for BizTalk 2009 I guess it will be worth a try.

  • The hotfix supposedly works for BizTalk 2009 on 64-bit.

    I did hear from the Microsoft HIS product group that W2K8 R2 support for WMQ is in the BizTalk 2010/HIS 2010 product. At this point, BizTalk 2009 is not officially supported on W2K8 R2, although I know it works well in this configuration.

    Also, make sure you are not using BizTalk 2009 with SQL 2K8 R2. This is an incompatible combination. You should be ok with BizTalk 2009, SQL 2K8, and W2K8 R2.

    Thanks,

  • Windows 2008 R2 and SQL 2008 R2 are not supported before BizTalk 2010.

    BizTalk 2006/2006 R2 goes with SQL 2000-2005 and Windows 2003 (VS2005)

    BizTalk 2009 goes with SQL 2005-2008 and Windows 2003-2008 (VS2008)

    BizTalk 2010 goes with SQL 2008-2008R2 and Windows 2008-2008R2 (VS2010)

    If using MQSeries 7, make sure to use at least 7.0.1.3 as there are performance issues before that were fixed in 7.0.1.3.

    Thanks
