  • Transformed into (often significantly) into formats that other systems can accept.
  • Loaded said data into new systems.
In this post, I discuss how to add some basic checkpoints into tools to prevent things from breaking bad.

Speed up your Lotus Notes performance by tuning the JVM

Lotus Notes uses Java Virtual Machine (JVM) for processing of Lotus Notes applications and plugins. 

IBMs Lotues Notes client configuration has a standard value that defines how many megabytes of RAM Lotus Notes can maximally use for JVM. This value is for PCs with above 1 GB RAM initially set too low, as it should be approx. 1/3 of the RAM of the PC (default value = 256 MB, but should be 768 MB).

An introduction to MQ - Part1

In a nutshell, WebSphere MQ is an assured delivery mechanism, which consists of queues managed by Queue Managers. We can put messages onto, and retrieve messages from queues, and the movement of messages between queues is facilitated by components called Channels and Transmission Queues.
There are a number of fundamental points that we need to know about WebSphere MQ:
  • All objects in WebSphere MQ are case sensitive
  • We cannot read messages from a Remote Queue (only from a Local Queue)
  • We can only put a message onto a Local Queue (not a Remote Queue)
