IBM MQ Example Configurations

These following sections requires running Zookeeper, Kafka, and Connect. For more information, see the Kafka Connect quick start guide.

Standalone

The first configuration is used typically along with :standalone mode.

name=connector1
tasks.max=1
connector.class=io.confluent.connect.ibm.mq.IbmMQSourceConnector
# The following values must be configured and should match your environment.
kafka.topic=MyKafkaTopicName
mq.hostname=localhost
mq.transport.type=client
mq.queue.manager=QMA
mq.channel=SYSTEM.DEF.SVRCONN
jms.destination.name=testing
# The following define the information used to validate the license stored in Kafka
# or leave blank for a 30 day trial
confluent.license=
confluent.topic.bootstrap.servers=localhost:9092

Change the confluent.topic.* properties as required to suit your environment. If running on a single-node Kafka cluster you will need to include confluent.topic.replication.factor=1. Leave the confluent.license property blank for a 30 day trial. See the configuration options for more details.

Distributed

This configuration is used typically along with distributed mode. Write the following json to connector.json, configure all of the required values, and use the command below to post the configuration to one the distributed connect worker(s).

{
  "name": "connector1",
  "config": {
    "connector.class": "io.confluent.connect.ibm.mq.IbmMQSourceConnector",
    "kafka.topic":"MyKafkaTopicName",
    "mq.hostname":"localhost",
    "mq.transport.type":"client",
    "mq.queue.manager":"QMA",
    "mq.channel":"SYSTEM.DEF.SVRCONN",
    "jms.destination.name":"testing",
    "confluent.license":"",
    "confluent.topic.bootstrap.servers":"localhost:9092"
  }
}

Change the confluent.topic.* properties as required to suit your environment. If running on a single-node Kafka cluster you will need to include "confluent.topic.replication.factor":"1". Leave the confluent.license property blank for a 30 day trial. See the configuration options for more details.

Use curl to post the configuration to one of the Kafka Connect Workers. Change http://localhost:8083/ the the endpoint of one of your Kafka Connect worker(s).

curl -s -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' --data @connector.json http://localhost:8083/connectors
