Description

Top rule

MQ and MQ Appliance firmware V9.1.3 CD releases deliver features and enhancements that extend and build on those that were available in MQ V9.1.2, the previous CD release.

MQ V9.1.3 base

New functions and enhancements include:

  • Enhancements to the ability to balance applications across queue managers

    MQ V9.1.2 delivered a new feature to improve the ability of MQ to balance application connections across multiple different queue managers. The initial release allowed C language applications to balance across queue managers. The latest update enables JMS applications to automatically balance connections across clustered queue managers.

    Additional enhancements go further to help support this new capability. It is now possible to use administrative interfaces such as, REST, runmqsc, and PCF to identify where applications are connected. Also, the rate at which MQ can detect and request rebalancing is improved since MQ V9.1.2.

  • Further enhancements and new capabilities for REST Messaging

    Some of the most well received updates in recent MQ releases were in the area of support for REST Messaging. In MQ V9.1.3, this capability is further extended to use the REST Messaging interface to browse existing MQ messages. This builds on the previous ability to PUT and GET MQ messages.

  • Improvements for using REST API for administration

    For a number of releases since the early MQ V9.0 CD releases there were incremental updates to provide MQ administration through REST API. In the MQ V9.1.3 release this is further extended to allow a feature rich calls to the runmqsc interface through the REST API, with parse-able JSON input and outputs. This enables smarter tooling and responses to be created.

  • .NET core application development on MacOS

    Recent releases of MQ V9.1.1 and V9.1.2 provided support for .NET core on Windows™ and Linux® environments. Another recent addition was the ability to develop applications on MacOS. The MQ V9.1.3 release enables the development of .NET core applications on MacOS. Once developed, these applications can be run supported on either Windows or Linux environments.

MQ Advanced V9.1.3

  • Multiple additional enhancements for the MQ Managed File Transfer (MFT) capabilities

    Amongst the additional capabilities provided by MQ Advanced is the ability to move file data over the MQ network, benefitting from the reliability and security of MQ, while allowing data held in files to potentially start or end in an MQ-enabled application.

    The MFT Protocol Bridge now supports connectivity to an FTP server running on the IBM i platform. This enables MQ MFT to exchange files with the integrated file system on the IBM i platform.

    There is also a new fteClearMonitorHistory command that simplifies the task of reprocessing and reinitiating a transfer by using a monitor. Resource monitors provide performance improvements when monitoring deep queues or directories with large numbers of files.

  • Improved resiliency in Kubernetes environments can be achieved by configuring:
    • A multi-instance queue manager by using active and standby Pods
    • Single resilient queue manger with Kubernetes monitoring the queue manager nodes for availability

MQ Appliance V9.1.3

New functions and enhancements include HA and DR status notifications.

One of the most appreciated features of the MQ Appliance is the seamless support it provides for HA and DR. In the MQ V9.1.3 release enhancements for the MQ Appliance, HA and DR status notifications are written to the MQ system log. If these notifications are combined with the log target integration that was delivered in the V9.1.2 release, then the notifications can be streamed to third-party monitoring tools for timely detection and response.

The MQ V9.1.3 release also includes an update to report the date and time when data synchronization was lost if replication between appliances in an HA or DR configuration is interrupted.

Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act

The following programs and appliances are capable as of July 11, 2019, 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.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion 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 regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
