WITHDRAWN: MS0B: WebSphere MQ Java classes for PCF

Downloadable files


MS0B provides the capability to perform administration tasks on a queue manager by sending and receiving WebSphere MQ messages.

Download Description

The WebSphere MQ Programmable Command Formats (PCF) provide the capability to perform administration tasks on a queue manager by sending and receiving WebSphere MQ messages of a special format. PCF request messages are sent to the queue manager's command queue, where they are processed by the command server and replies returned to the designated reply-to queue.

This SupportPac contains a set of Java classes representing PCF header structures as well as an agent that can be used to simplify the task of communicating with a target queue manager and thus enable the use of WebSphere MQ Programmable Command Formats for queue manager administration.

Possible Uses
These PCF classes can be used to develop applications for general-purpose WebSphere MQ administration and monitoring, or in specialized applications that need to query or alter WebSphere MQ definitions.

New in this Release
This update adds the following new features:

• Support for activity report and trace route messages
Activity reporting and trace route messages are used to gather information about the paths taken by messages through a network of queue managers. These messages are formatted as PCF messages. A set of new convenience classes in the com.ibm.mq.pcf.activity package make it easy for applications to process activity and trace-route reports and create trace route requests.

• Support for the MQEPH structure, used in activity and trace-route messages.
