Thanks for explanation.

Ok.
It works like data queue.

In fact  it is a product (MQSeries) with many compatibilities, and not functions
(accept, listen...) included IN the operating system (Os390,400, Windows, Unix
...) ?

2 questions again

Which is the faster ?

For developpement time.
Duting sending or receving messages ?
