The eiPlatform and eiConsole support connectivity to a wide variety of messaging middleware. Typically this connectivity is handled through JMS, or the Java Messaging Service. To configure JMS within the eiConsole, select this option from the Transport Type drop-down.
On the Basic configuration tab, enter the Naming Context Factory Class Name. For specific details on what should be contained within this field, please consult your JMS provider documentation. The Provider URL configuration item should be populated with the URL of the JNDI provider, which will give access to the various JMS components. For more detail on the specific format of the Provider URL, please consult your JMS documentation. Also, you can specify the Reconnect on Error option. It determines if the connection should be closed and reconnected when errors are encountered. Also, you can choose the Transport Version: a version of the JMS Transport to use.
The Credentials tab of the JMS Listener allows you to specify the User name and Password used when connecting to the data source. Enter the User name in the User name configuration item and the Password in the Password configuration item, if required.
The Data Source tab contains information about queues or topics that you wish to connect to. The Mode configuration item contains radio buttons that allow you to distinguish between the two. Select Publish/Subscribe to connect to a JMS topic. Or select Point-to-point to connect to a queue.
When Point-to-point is selected you must provide the Queue connection factory name and the Queue name that you wish to place messages on. Consult your JMS provider documentation for more information about the specific format of the Queue connection factory class name as well as how to set up the queues.
When Publish/subscribe is clicked you must provide the Topic connection factory name. This is the JNDI name used to connect to the Connection Factory for Topics. Consult your JMS provider documentation for more information regarding the Topic Connection Factory Name.
The Topic name configuration item provides the name of the Topic that you wish to connect to. These Topics are typically configured within your JMS tool. Again, please consult your JMS documentation for more detail on how this is accomplished.
Next is LDAP transport.
