IBM is attempting to make its MQSeries messaging middleware more appealing to the business community by building up a family of third party applications, tools and consultancy around the offering.
The product, which has so far been sold to technologists, is now supported by about 50 ISVs. MQSeries will also be upgraded next month to include support for DCE security and directory services and Java. It will be able to provide messaging services between Java and non-Java applications rather than just Java-to-Java, and will support 100Mbps messages rather than just the current 4Mbps.
The versioning will jump to release 5.0 with this release to dovetail into the release of the IBM Software Server packages due later this year.
