The eiPlatform and eiConsole support Connectivity to a Messaging Middleware typically handled through JMS (Java Messaging Service)
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. As with all the components of the eiConsole, the user is presented with a graphical Interface with easy to configure panels.
To configure JMS within the eiConsole, select this option from the Transport Type drop-down.

Data Source JMS Transport Configuration Options
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.
- Mode – enables Point-to-Point or Publish/Subscribe data mode
- Topic Connection Factory Name – specifies the topic connection factory to use
- Topic Name – specifies the topic name to query against
- Queue Connection Factory Name – specifies the queue connection factory to use
- Queue Name – specifies the queue to query against
