IBM Integration Bus / WebSphere Message Broker Tooling

MQ Explorer can remotely connect to queue managers on any supported platform – enabling your entire messaging backbone to be viewed, explored and altered from one place. The latest version of the SupportPac can be used to connect to remote queue managers from any currently supported version of IBM WebSphere MQ.

This SupportPac contains a utility that is useful for the development and testing of WebSphere MQ and IBM Integration Bus or WebSphere Message Broker applications. Test messages are stored as files, which are then read by the application and written to a WebSphere MQ queue. The program is GUI based. 

Command line performance measurement utilities are also provided.

Possible Uses
It allows test messages to be captured and stored in files, and then used to drive IBM Integration Bus or WebSphere Message Broker applications. Output messages can also be read and displayed in a variety of formats. The formats include two types of XML as well as matched against a COBOL copybook. The data can be in EBCDIC or ASCII. An RFH2 header can be added to the message before the message is sent.
