Future of the MSMQ-MQSeries Bridge

With the announcement of Host Integration Server 2009 R2, there has been an update to the list of Deprecated Features:

  • COM+ AS/400 Data Queues ActiveX Control
  • COM+ Host File Transfer ActiveX Control
  • COM+ support throughout TI and BAHA
  • MSMQ-MQSeries Bridge
  • ODBC Driver for DB2
  • TI Rapid Deployment

As a Bridge replacement, the HIS team recommends using Microsoft BizTalk Server 2009 R2 in conjunction with one of the two Microsoft BizTalk Adapters for IBM WebSphere MQ (MQ Series), or the Microsoft WCF Channel for WebSphere MQ.  

Note that the MSMQ-MQSeries Bridge is still supported until 9th July, 2019 if you're running HIS 2009 "R1".
