WebSphere® MQ V7.5 for Multiplatforms provides additional enhancements to IBM® Universal Messaging to deliver a single, integrated offering for all core messaging functions. Customers gain access to previously separately installable capabilities, enabling more complete solutions for data and message movement along with reduced complexity.
WebSphere MQ V7.5 delivers a single Universal Messaging solution. It enables the simple, rapid, reliable, and secure transport of data and messages between applications, systems, and services.
WebSphere MQ is the market-leading, message-oriented middleware product that delivers a reliable, proven universal messaging backbone for almost 10,000 organizations of different sizes, spanning many industries around the world.
This new release builds on the added capabilities and new functions that were delivered in WebSphere MQ V7.1, which was announced in October, 2011. It also builds on the previous announcements for WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition V7.0.4, in April, 2011, and WebSphere MQ Advanced Message Security V7.0.1, in October, 2011.
Note: WebSphere MQ for z/OS®, V7.1 is not updated in this release of WebSphere MQ V7.5 for Multiplatforms.
You can obtain the new enhanced functions offered in WebSphere MQ V7.5 by migrating directly to V7.5 from WebSphere MQ V6.0, V7.0.1, or V.7.1 -- without migrating to an interim version or release.
A key new feature of WebSphere MQ V7.5 is the consolidation of multiple previously separate product capabilities into a single integrated offering. WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition and WebSphere MQ Advanced Message Security, both previously announced separate products, are now available as integrated capabilities for optional installation as Managed File Transfer and Advanced Message Security components within the WebSphere MQ product. They are subject to appropriate licensing entitlement.
WebSphere MQ V7.1 introduced a capability to support install of different versions of WebSphere MQ in different locations on your system. WebSphere MQ V7.5 extends this to enable additional capabilities for Advanced Message Security and Managed File Transfer to be optionally installed as part of the WebSphere MQ server install.
WebSphere MQ V7.5 queue managers gain access to these additional capabilities without requiring additional access to code, or separate product installs. All tooling necessary to use these functions is included in the MQ Explorer tooling or command line tools for scripted configuration as standard for all customers, including those on z/OS.
Changes made to the licensing of the Extended Transactional Client and the WebSphere MQ Telemetry Client benefit all customers in providing increased entitlement. This applies to customers of WebSphere MQ V7.5 as well as WebSphere MQ V7.0.1 and WebSphere MQ V7.1.

|Planned availability date|
WebSphere MQ delivers a single integrated Universal Messaging solution. This V7.5 release delivers new features and also enhances the total capabilities available through integrating managed file transfer functions and advanced message security capabilities that were previously available and installable as separate offerings.
Integrated managed file transfer
WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition has been available as a separate product offering for a number of years, providing the ability for customers to move their business data stored in files over the WebSphere MQ infrastructure, improving the reliability, security, and management of their file transfers. WebSphere MQ V7.5 extends this capability from being a separate offering, to being an integrated optional feature of the WebSphere MQ server component as the WebSphere MQ Managed File Transfer Service. Now all WebSphere MQ servers can install, subject to entitlement, this server-based capability. Additional separately installable endpoints, WebSphere MQ Managed File Transfer Agents, are included in the package. These are entitled separately to allow customers to extend the managed file transfer infrastructure to any point in their enterprise connection to the WebSphere MQ server deployments.
Integrated advanced message security
WebSphere MQ Advanced Message Security, also available for a number of years, allows customers to protect the security of their messages from application to application, without the need to change the application code itself. With WebSphere MQ V7.5, this capability is included as a part of the install, making it simpler for customers to see the function, and to have it installed should they wish to buy license entitlement to use it.
Improved application isolation
WebSphere MQ V7.5 includes improved ability to scale for differing workload environments by the ability to configure multiple transmission queues in a WebSphere MQ clustered environment. This enables applications with different workloads and performance requirements to operate at their own rate without impacting other applications.
Enhancements for the managed file transfer capabilities
In addition to the tight integration, as a part of WebSphere MQ V7.5, which enhances the runtime control, the managed file transfer capabilities are also enhanced. There are additional choices for storing file transfer audit information with the addition of the file system as an option. There is also greater customization for the content and format, as well as more options for logging.
Enhancements for WebSphere MQ Security
The addition of Managed File Transfer capabilities as well as WebSphere MQ Advanced Message Security into WebSphere MQ V7.5 enables some improvements to the security possible within WebSphere MQ.
With WebSphere MQ V7.5 the Advanced Message Security feature built into all MQ clients, end-to-end encryption is allowed by updates to WebSphere MQ objects for customers who are licensed to use that function. There is also further support for protecting sensitive data such as passwords used in configuring managed file transfers.
Wider access to the Extended Transactional Client for all customers
The Extended Transactional Client enables customers to configure their WebSphere MQ client to participate in a transactional unit of work when exchanging messages to an MQ server. Use of this client without charge was previously restricted to customers using WebSphere Application Server, WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus, or WebSphere Process Server as the Transaction Manager. With the announcement of WebSphere MQ V7.5, the Extended Transactional Client is available for use in all client deployments without additional entitlement. This includes all supported versions of WebSphere MQ client connecting to any supported version of WebSphere MQ queue manager.
With the availability of WebSphere MQ V7.5 the capability previously delivered within the Extended Transactional Client is incorporated into the standard WebSphere MQ client. Customers using WebSphere MQ V7.0.1 and WebSphere MQ V7.1 gain the benefit of use of the Extended Transactional Client without charge from the date of this announcement. IBM is making available refreshed code including updated License Information. Customers can realize this benefit through the download and acceptance of this new License Information.
Using WebSphere MQ Telemetry Standard Client
WebSphere MQ Telemetry was included as part of the WebSphere MQ V7.1 offering, providing wider access to this capability for customers who wanted to deploy the WebSphere MQ Telemetry clients on suitable endpoints and connect them to their WebSphere MQ servers.
Connecting these clients to WebSphere MQ servers required purchasing entitlements based on the number of Telemetry clients connecting to a WebSphere MQ Queue Manager at any one time. With the announcement of WebSphere MQ V7.5, use of the WebSphere MQ Telemetry Client requires purchasing an entitlement for WebSphere MQ Telemetry Clients for each WebSphere MQ Server installed that will have WebSphere MQ Telemetry clients connected to it, with no limit to the number of clients connected. This change in the license entitlement for WebSphere MQ Telemetry Clients applies to not just WebSphere MQ V7.5. It also benefits customers using WebSphere MQ Telemetry Clients with WebSphere MQ V7.0.1 and WebSphere MQ V7.1 from the date of this announcement. IBM is making available refreshed code including updated License Information and customers can realize this benefit through the download and acceptance of this new License Information.
The WebSphere MQ Telemetry Advanced Client entitlements are still based on the number of clients connected at any one time.
Enhancements for the use of WebSphere MQ as a trial
Customers wanting to make a rapid start connecting applications with WebSphere MQ can take advantage of the availability of WebSphere MQ as a free download in a trial version. With WebSphere MQ V7.1 this feature was enhanced to enable trial versions of WebSphere MQ to be upgraded to a full production license. With the integration of additional entitled capabilities in WebSphere MQ V7.5, a trial download is still available. However, where entitlement was not purchased at the end of the trial for capabilities that were installed, then those capabilities without entitlement must be removed from the system.
WebSphere MQ is capable as of June 15, 2012, when used in accordance with associated IBM documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it.

Install is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An install is an installed copy of the program on a physical or virtual disk made available to be executed on a computer. Licensee must obtain an entitlement for each install of the program.
Processor Value Unit (PVU)
PVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the PVU table by processor value, brand, type, and model number at the website below) and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores. The PVU table can be found at
Licensee can deploy the program using either full capacity licensing or virtualization capacity (sub-capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (refer to the web page below). If using Full Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the Program, except for those servers from which the program was permanently removed.
If using Virtualization Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the Program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at
* An activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

|Statement of good security practices|
IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
|IBM Electronic Services|
IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring.
