This is the process of "walking" the message tree to access the elements which are referred to in the ESQL or Java. This occurs in nodes which are able to change the message tree such as Compute nodes. A copy of the message tree is taken for recovery reasons. This is the cost of invoking resource requests such as reading or writing WebSphere MQ messages or making database requests.

Parsing Before an incoming message can be processed by the nodes or ESQL it must transformed from the sequence of bytes, which is the input message, into a structured object, which is the message tree. Some parsing will take place immediately such as the parsing of the MQMD assuming the incoming message is an MQ message , some will take place, on demand, as fields in the message payload are referred to within the message flow.

The amount of data which needs to be parsed is dependent on the organization of the message and the requirements of the message flow. Not all message flows may require access to all data in a message.

When an output message is created the message tree needs to be converted into an actual message. This is a function of the parser. The process of creating the output message is referred to as serialization or flattening of the message tree. The creation of the output message is a simpler process than reading an incoming message.

The whole message will be written at once when an output message is created. Figure 2 below shows this processing schematically. Figure 2. Parsing and Serialisation in a Message Flow. These were touched on at the beginning of the article. It is through these technologies that the input message is processed and the tree for the output message is produced.

The cost of running this processing is dependent on the amount and complexity of the transformation processing that is coded. Navigation The cost of navigation is dependent on the complexity and size of the message tree which is in turn dependent on the size and complexity of the input messages and the complexity of the processing within the message flow.

As the message tree changes shape over the course of execution of the message so will the costs of accessing different parts of the tree. The cost will be proportional to the depth of tree. There are steps which can be taken to reduce the cost of navigating the tree and we will touch on these in the sections on ESQL and Java coding Tree Copying This occurs in nodes which are able to change the message tree such as Compute nodes.

A copy of the message tree is taken for recovery reasons so that if a compute node makes changes and processing in node incurs or generates an exception the message tree can be recovered to a point earlier in the message flow. Without this a failure in the message flow downstream could have implications for a different path in the message flow. Tree copying does not happen in the Filter or Database nodes as these nodes cannot modify the message tree.

A tree copy is a copy of a structured object and so is relatively expensive. It is not a copy of a sequence of bytes that is being copied. For this reason it is best to minimize the number of such copies, hence the general recommendation to minimize the number of compute nodes Compute and JavaCompute in a message flow.

With the insert data must be added to the db2 table and logged to ensure data integrity. The processing costs in each of the sections above can normally be reduced by following a series of coding recommendations which are given in the sections below. The recommendations are split into three distinct areas.

There are those which are generic in nature and to do with the way in which the message flow is constructed. There are those which apply when coding in ESQL and finally there are those which apply when coding in Java. The primary effect of the recommendations will be to reduce CPU and memory usage. This is normally controlled as part of message flow design. This aspect is not covered in this article.

Identify the Critical Path of Processing [CPU, Memory] Identify the most frequently used critical path of execution in the message flow and ensure that you optimise the processing along that path. This is particularly important in a message flow which processes multiple types of messages.

You do not want to have traverse most of the message flow to start the processing of the most popular message type. Separation of processing logic, into multiple nodes, makes it easier to encapsulate pieces of processing logic. It also makes it easier to build an understanding the processing sequence when it is viewed in the Message Broker Toolkit.

Nodes such as Filter and Database do not modify the incoming message tree. To reduce the impact of the tree copy you are recommended to do two things.

Firstly reduce the number of Compute and JavaCompute nodes in the message flow and secondly to avoid consecutive Compute or JavaCompute nodes. It is important to think about node use and language at design time and which language you will use to implement common logic. In some situations a project might decide to implement a common function like an audit or log routine as a Java node whilst other functions are written as ESQL inside Compute nodes. When this happens it is not possible to combine the code in the Compute and JavaCompute nodes into a single node in the same way that it would be possible if all of the logic was written in the same language.

Figure 1 above illustrates a case where the message flow could be optimised.. There are two paths of processing after the filter node. One for the order processing and one for the payment processing.

Notice how the order processing leg has two adjacent Compute nodes Order Analysis and Order Processing. The payment processing leg of the message flow has only a single compute node. To optimise this message flow we would combine the Order Analysis and Order Processing nodes into a single compute node as the nodes are adjacent.

Given the way in which the flow has been constructed it is not possible to reduce the number of Compute nodes to fewer than two. If two Compute nodes are separated by a ResetContentDescriptor node it is possible to combine all three nodes in to a single Compute node using function that is now available from Message Broker V5 fixpack 3 onwards.

There will be situations where you will need more than one compute node in a message flow and this is fine.

It is as expected. The key thing is to avoid unnecessary additional Compute nodes. Do not take away the impression that you are being recommended to force all of the processing into a single compute node.

Avoid Consecutive Short Message Flows [CPU, Memory] Avoid consecutive short message flows in which the output of a message flow is immediately processed by another message flow as opposed to the output of the message flow being read by an external application. By using consecutive short message flows you are forcing additional parsing and serialisation of messages which is likely to be expensive.

The only exception to this is the use of the Aggregation nodes. The use of multiple short message flows in this way will also lead to an increase of the level of WebSphere MQ messages as the results of the first message flow are placed on a WebSphere MQ queue for the second message flow to read.

Do not confuse this advice with the case where you have a short message flow because that is all that is needed. Maximise use of the built-in parsers [CPU, Memory] Within a message set in the MRM it is possible to define a default value for a field or specify that a field containing spaces is represented in the message tree as a null value or as hexadecimal zeros.

It is better to attach more than one wire format to a single logical message set model and allow the Message Broker writers to convert the data when it is written to the wire, than having to use multiple lines of ESQL or Java to copy field values from one logical message set model to another. This will often require more time and effort in the construction of the model, but will save coding effort in return, and will provide a smaller runtime memory footprint which will be long lasting.

They are typically embedded into multiple message flows to provide consistent implementations of functions like logging and auditing. When they were introduced in Version 2 they were the only way of achieving code reuse and as such were widely used.

There are now other facilities available which you should consider. Subflow's which contain common routines can be embedded into message flows. The subflow's are 'in-lined' into the message flow when the message flow is compiled. There are no additional nodes inserted into the message flow as a result of using subflow's.

However be aware of implicitly adding extra nodes into a message flow as a result of using subflow's.

In some situations compute nodes are added to subflow's to perform marshalling of data from one part of the message tree into a known place in the message tree so that the data can be processed by the common processing in the subflow. The result may then need to be copied back to another part of the message tree before the subflow completes.

This approach can easily lead to the addition of two compute nodes, each of which performs a tree copy. In such cases the subflow facilitates the reuse of logic but unwittingly adds an additional processing overhead each time it is used. Watch the order in which you define message tree lements [CPU] When constructing an internal OutputRoot message tree structure for an XML message you must create the individual elements in the correct sequence as defined in the XSD and message set.

The parser will not re-order the elements. This code creates the right elements, and in the correct sequence. When creating a child node under parent P, the child is created by P's parser. It also depends on the OS used.

On issuing this command it prompts for Keystore password. Then it asks for some more security questions.

This command generates a keystore. Step Generate a certificate signing request CSR for an existing Java keystore keytool -certreq -alias mydomain -keystore keystore. Then we have to upload our csr file.

The generated crt file will then be sent to our email id. After receiving the signed certificate from the CA, save it in notepad with extension. Step Import a signed primary certificate to an existing Java keystore keytool -import -trustcacerts -alias MBV7Broker -file certificate. Import root certificates and server certificates to the broker truststore keytool -import -trustcacerts —alias Certificate. Associate the keystore file with the broker EG The keystore file created earlier needs to be associated with the broker instance in order for it to know its repository file.

To avoid confusion, do not have multiple keystore files on the server.

Associate the keystore type. You should configure the keystore type on the broker, because there are several other keystore types supported by broker.
