I am putting my question here as this is IBM Websphere forum.

I believe we should have a separate group for Websphere MQ Series from certification point of view.

Why we dont have any here?

Are there any groups outside?

Thanks
Ahmad

Forum changes are discussed in the JavaRanch forum, so I will move your post there.

Like other subjects, new forums are created only as warranted by the amount of traffic generated for that subject. If you can identify a large number of posts related to a particular topic, it can be considered for a new forum.

There are enough people pursuing these certs and WMQ is a great product.
(Is that enough to create a new Forum).

Also Javaranch should have certification forums for other than Sun products isnt it?

Sure. We have no objection to having any forum at all, Sun related or not. Java related or not.

But we wont create a forum unless it is going to have traffic. So when we see substantial posts regarding MQ Series or about certification for MQ Series then we will look at what sort of forum works best for them.

Searching in the IBM/Websphere forum for "MQ Series" I get a grand total of 105 matches, and only 5 of them this year.

The same search in "Product and Other Certification" returns 12 matches - 1 this year (from back in January).

As Bear mentioned, we need to see posts before we create a forum. Right now I am not seeing posts.

Perhaps we are just not seeing the true interest - would you care to make a case (by showing us the posts on this subject)?

Regards, Andrew

Andrew,

I agree that MQ series doesnt get many posts on Javaranch, but one of the reasons can be that it doesnt exist, so people look at other places?

The reason I want it to be on Javaranch is because MQ series has a great set of api for Java (Object API & JMS etc), which in turn is integrated to Websphere Application Server.

This makes MQ/JMS to be the most suitable messaging product for WAS.

So we have a forum for WAS, to me it makes sense to have one for MQ?

But I cant get you the posts --

Our experience in the past has been that creating a forum on a specific topic doesn't really have a significant effect on how many posts on that topic we get. At least it looks that way from my point of view...

Technically, it is the IBM and WebSphere forum. Questions on RAD and MQ are certainly in scope. Nobody is limiting it to WAS.

Technically MQ is called WebSphere MQ now anyways so it fits perfectly into a "WebSphere" forum!
