Use the Generic JMS Adapter BrokerConnect connection mode from another OpenEdge installation. When connecting with the BrokerConnect connection mode, -H is specified in the connection string, allowing for remote connections.
Clients from the original installation will not be able to communicate over the ClientConnect or ServerConnect connection modes as those are local to the installation. Article 000012293, What are the different methods to connect to SonicMQ from OpenEdge ?
provides more details on the connection modes available to the SonicMQ/Generic JMS Adapter.
Depending on the Operating System, there are multiple possibilities:
Multiple OE installations of the same version can exist on Unix, so the same version could be installed in a different directory. However, this could require starting the Adminserver, nameserver, and BrokerConnect instance on different ports than the original installation. See Article 000014110, How To Configure Multiple Versions of AdminServer To Be Run Concurrently since OpenEdge 10.1B
for details on running multiple versions of the AdminServer on one machine
Windows has the limitation of only allowing one installation of the same OpenEdge version on the same machine. Either install the same version on another machine or install a different version on the same machine.
For example, if the current installation in 11.6:
- Install 11.6 on a secondary machine, configure this to use the Generic JMS Adapter BrokerConnect connection mode and connect to this from the messaging clients on the the original installation.
- Install 11.7 on the same machine as 11.6. 11.6 clients can communicate with an 11.7 Generic JMS Adapter BrokerConnect instance.
