Correlating the request/response messages in MQ Series Adapter – Oracle SOA Suite

Correlating the request/response messages in MQ Series Adapter – Oracle SOA Suite:

Mapping a response to a request in a request-reply interaction requires correlation.The MQ adapter provide the inbuilt options to correlate the request and response messages, there is no need of implementing the custom correlation to correlate the request and response messages.

Each MQSeries request message contains a message ID and a correlation ID. When an application receives a request message from Oracle BPEL PM, it checks for the correlation schema defined for the response message. Based on the correlation schema, the application generates the message ID and correlation ID of the response message. Based on the Message ID/Correlation ID the request/response messages will be correlated in the MQAdapter.

The below are the two patterns to correlate the request/response messages in MQ adapter.
  • Get Message from MQ and Send Reply
  • Send Message to MQ and Get Reply

Get Message from MQ and Send Reply:

MQ adapter gets a message from the inbound Queue and send a reply message to the outbound bound queue Synchronously/Asynchronously.
  • Create a composite with synchronous/asynchronous BPEL process.
  • Delete the default service created and add the MQ Adapter service



  • Add the MQ JNDI name in the 3rd step of MQ adapter definition.
  •  Select the operation as Get message to MQ and Get Reply/Reports and the option name as Asynchronous/Synchronous in the 5th step.
  • Select the Message Type as Normal and enter the request queue name as part 6th step.
  • Enter the reply queue in the 7th step
  • Configure the input/output schema s in 8th step
  • Delete the default parnerlink in the BPEL and connect to the partner link created for the MQ.
  • Delete and Recreate the input/output variables and complete the BPEL design as per the requirement.

  • Double click on the receiveInput activity in the BPEL and select the properties tab.
  • Select the messageid as the input for the property jca.mq.MQMD.MsgId – Create the messageid variable before as string type.
  • pen the callbackclient activity and select the properties tab, add the messageid variable as the input to the property jca.mq.MQMD.MsgId
  • Deploy the code and test.

 Send Message to MQ and Get Reply:

  • Design the Composite and the BPEL process.

  •  Configure the MQ adapter as a reference by following the steps mentioned above.
  • Make sure the Message Type selected as Normal in the 6th step
  •  Make sure the Message ID and the Correlation ID values selected as shown below in the 7th step.
 
  • Deploy the composite and test.

  1. This article has all the important information on this topic. This really is some top notch stuff from your side. You continue to be a pure class writer and I hope you'll continue it in the future as well. 300w ac dc switching adapter​
