I haven’t looked at any of these in detail yet. 


In addition, IBM has published a bunch of other papers and articles on using .NET with pieces of IBM infrastructure:

In addition, don’t forget the various software IBM delivers:



  • MQ Classes for .NET
  • DB2 – data provider, VS.NET plugins, and .NET stored procedure hosting
  • Informix .NET provider
  • Tivoli Access Manager for .NET
  • Tivoli Monitoring for .NET
  • Rational XDE for .NET

IBM also offers services around .NET:  implementation and training, too.  Maybe IBM is starting to come around on this .NET phenomenon? 😉

    As previously mentioned in a previous blog entry (JMS Interop, revisited), there is a demand for .Net and JMS interop.

    IBM Message Service Client for .NET informally known as XMS) has now started an open Beta programme.

    XMS is a non-Java implementation of the Java Message Service (JMS) API, currently implemented to work with the IBM WebSphere Messaging portfolio. Specifically, it is a fully managed .NET API that can be used by applications to send and receive JMS messages via IBM WebSphere Business Integration Brokers over Real-time Transport or via the default messaging provider within IBM WebSphere Application Server v6.

    We welcome you to download XMS from: http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/download/search.jsp?go=y&rs=message,

    Try it out, and give us your feedback via: news://news.software.ibm.com/ibm.software.websphere.mq.beta.

    Please prefix your XMS-related posts to this Beta newsgroup with ‘XMS .NET:’.
