Guys,
I want to know if there are any alternatives to MQseries. I want to save all the overhead with admin/setup connected with MQ. The requirement is communication between a web application in WAS and AS/400 app. All you need is send a string and get the results. Can this be done using a custom peer to peer Java program? I dont want want to use any new tools like tibco etc.

If you do not required garanteed delivery, then a simple SOAP web service could do the job

Or you could try this approach:

- use DataQueues on the AS/400 as the messaging mechanism
eg.

Servlet (bean or whatever) in the Application Server adds a request to a "request" DataQueue, and waits for an answer on the "response" DataQueue, the AS/400 program does the opposite (reads request, writes response).

These classes should help you with what you need:
