Configuring the UMS

Introduction

The UMS serves as a gateway between UMS client applications and a JMS provider (in this case, Message Queue). Consequently, the UMS establishes connections with a Message Queue broker which the UMS uses to send messages to and receive messages from JMS destinations, as requested by UMS client applications. You can configure the UMS to use secure (SSL) Message Queue connections, and you can configure the maximum number of UMS sessions that share a single connection.

UMS client applications can be authenticated with the UMS using web container based authentication. You can configure the web container to accept http or https connections when you deploy the UMS, depending on your application requirements. In addition, you can configure the UMS to authenticate client application users with Message Queue, and client applications will then need to provide the UMS a Message Queue user name and password.

In addition, if a UMS client application makes a login request, the UMS caches the Message Queue authentication data and other state information (for example, transaction state) in a UMS session object and passes a session ID (sid) back to the client application. The sid is used by the client application to identify the session when making subsequent requests. In this way, the UMS maintains session state across a number of client application requests. You can configure the length of time the UMS will maintain the session object in the absence of a close session request.

You can also configure the length of time that a receive request will wait if there is no message to be retrieved from the target destination.
