Using an iRule to translate and load balance MQ, MQMS or JMS.

Hi, I don't have much experience or knowledge of how messaging really works but I've been trying to find out whether anyone out there who does can tell me if it is possible to use an iRule as a sort of message broker to allow translation between various messaging systems and protocols??


I don't have any specifics but just want some input on whether it would even be worth the time and effort to do at this level or should be left to appropriate middleware, or maybe its really simple.


Thanks and please excuse the ignorance!

  • Hi,


    It's not worth your time, unless you want to parse and replace a few keywords in request/response. Translating request/response to an entirely new language is not what F5s are meant for.
