MQGem Software is pleased to announce that a new version of MQSCX, our command line extended MQSC tool for IBM MQ, is now available.
This is a mini-release, specifically to release the first of the below features. But then we added a couple more things at the same time!
Issue RESET QSTATS as an MQSC command
Sparked by a conversation on MQSeries.net we were intrigued when one user asked us whether it would be possible to provide RESET QSTATS as an MQSC command on the distributed platforms using MQSCX. Turns out it is possible!
Support certlabl on connect
The =conn command provides for a number of client channel configuration attributes, and now certlabl is among them.
Provide a simple way of getting user key input
This version introduces the getkey() function which will return the next key pressed by the user. This can be useful to, for example, navigate your way through a script menu, or to exit from a while loop in a script at the user’s command.
The new version can be downloaded from the MQSCX Download Page. Any current licensed users of MQSCX can run the new version on their existing licence. If you don’t have a licence and would like to try out MQSCX then send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org and a 1-month trial licence will be sent to you.
