In this course, students learn how to install, customize, operate, and administer IBM WebSphere MQ on distributed platforms. Topics covered in this course include configuration, day-to-day administration, problem recovery, and managing security and performance.
In addition to the instructor-led lectures, students also participate in hands-on lab exercises that are designed to reinforce lecture content. The lab exercises utilize IBM WebSphere MQ V7, giving students practical experience with tasks such as handling queue recovery, implementing security, and problem determination.
Completing this course can also help students prepare for the appropriate WebSphere MQ Administrator certifications.
