The DSM installation document does not provide detailed screen shot for JMS Service creation. WebSphere administrators should be able to create the JMS resources with the information provided in the DSM installation guide.


Provided detailed step by step instructions to create the JMS services on WebSphere -

Create an unsecured Service Integration Bus (SIB) named ADM Bus.



In the ADM Bus, add the bus members corresponding to the nodes running ADM and PRPC. In the step for improving the messaging performance, it is advisable to accept the default settings for the JVM heap size.   




In the ADM Bus, create a new destination with the specifications listed below and save the changes to the master configuration.
• Destination type: topic space
• Identifier: ADMDestination




Go to the JMS providers facilities and select the messaging provider using the same scope as the ADM Bus SIB. In Additional Properties, select Topic Connection Factories, add a new connection factory using the specifications listed below and save the changes to the master configuration.

       • Name: ADM Request Connection Factory
       • JNDI name: jms/admRequestConnectionFactory
       • Bus name: ADM Bus
       • Durable subscription home: it should point to the host that is member of the bus (single server installation), or one member of the bus (cluster installation).



Back in the JMS provider, select the link to create a topic under Additional Properties, add a topic using the specifications listed below and save the changes to the master configuration.   
         • Name: ADM Topic
        • JNDI name: jms/admRequestDestination
        • Bus name: ADM Bus
        • Topic space name: ADMDestination



In the JMS provider, add a new activation specification using the details listed below and save the changes to the master configuration

          • Name: ADM Activation Specification
          • JNDI name: jms/admActivationSpecification
          • Destination type: topic
          • Destination JNDI name: jms/admRequestDestination
          • Bus name: ADM Bus


Deployment of the ADM EAR
