Basic settings

Property Type

Either Built-In or Repository.

  • Built-In: No property data stored centrally.
  • Repository: Select the repository file in which the properties are stored. The database connection related fields that follow are completed automatically using the data retrieved.

JMS Provider

Select the type of the MQ server(s) to be connected from the drop-down list: ActiveMQ (JMS v1), ActiveMQ Artemis (JMS v2), or WebSphere MQ.

Server URL

Enter the URL of the MQ server.

MQ server URL needs to be in specific format. That is, tcp://localhost:61616 (for ActiveMQ and ActiveMQ Artemis MQ servers) or localhost(1414) (for WebSphere MQ servers), as prompted in the field.

If you have to log in, select the check box and type in your username and password in the corresponding fields.

To enter the password, click the [...] button next to the Password field to bring out the Enter a new password dialog box, enter the password in the text field, and click OK. Note that you can enter the password either in a JSON string in the pure password mode or as a Java expression in the Java mode. You can toggle between the two modes by clicking switch to Java mode or switch to pure password mode on the top of the text field.

Set other properties as needed. To set a property in this table, click the plus button underneath the table to add a line, enter the property name in the Key column and enter the value in the Value column. This table supports global variables and context variables. Refer to Configure JMS producers for information about properties of ActiveMQ and ActiveMQ Artemis MQ servers; refer to WebSphere MQ connector properties for information about properties of WebSphere MQ servers.

Information noteNote: If you are using a WebSphere MQ JMS provider, you need to set the mandatory properties (that is, CHANNEL and QUEUE_MANAGER) in this table.

Global Variables

Global Variables

ERROR_MESSAGE: the error message generated by the component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string. This variable functions only if the Die on error check box is cleared, if the component has this check box.

NB_LINE: the number of rows read by an input component or transferred to an output component. This is an After variable and it returns an integer.

A Flow variable functions during the execution of a component while an After variable functions after the execution of the component.

To fill up a field or expression with a variable, press Ctrl+Space to access the variable list and choose the variable to use from it.

For more information about variables, see Using contexts and variables.
