Before Configuring or Managing Adapter Services
Perform the following tasks before configuring or managing adapter services.
*Before you configure or manage an adapter service
1. Start Integration Server and Integration Server Administrator, if they are not already running.
2. Make sure you have webMethods administrator privileges so that you can access the WebSphere MQ Adapter administrative screens. For more information about setting user privileges, see the webMethods Integration Server Administrator’s Guide for your release.
3. Using Integration Server Administrator, make sure that the WmMQAdapter package is enabled. For instructions, see Enabling Packages.
4. Using Integration Server Administrator, configure an adapter connection to use with the adapter service. For instructions, see Configuring WebSphere MQ Adapter Connections.
5. Start Software AG Designer if it is not already running.
If you are using Designer, use the Service Development perspective. For more information, see the webMethods Service Development Help for your release.
6. Make sure that you enable the Automatic data validation. For detailed instructions on how to enable automatic data validation, see Enabling Automatic Data Validation.
7. Using Designer, create a user-defined package to contain the service, if you have not already done so. When you configure adapter services, you should always define them in user-defined packages rather than in the WmMQAdapter package. For more information about managing packages for the adapter, see Package Management.
8. In order to run an adapter service that connects to a WebSphere MQ queue, you must ensure that the correct permissions are set for the user. For information about setting permissions, see Setting Permissions in WebSphere MQ.
