Use an exit to reformat Input-Event messages and transformation products

The reformatting exit allows you to:

  • Decrypt, decompress and reformat the Input-Event messages as they are received and before you start the Rule Engine MQSeries or JMS native functions.
  • Encrypt, compress and reformat the Output-Event messages before they are sent and after you run the Rule Engine MQSeries or JMS native functions.

You call the exit for each queue declared in script.mqs or script.jms.

Parameter settings in script.mqs or script.jms

Queue= MQS,"Manager=Qmngr;Queue=queuename; Reformatting=Yes, Blocking =Yes; Buffer = nb"
