Looking forward to MQTCv2.0.1.7

MQTC IconIt’s nearly September, and in less than four weeks is the MQTC conference in Sandusky, Ohio.

MQTC – the only conference dedicated to IBM MQ – takes place from September 25 to September 27. There is a full schedule of technical sessions as well as a number of vendor sessions. There’s also lots of information about the conference on the CapitalWare Blog, and you can follow the twitter hashtag #MQTC2017.

MQGem Software is a Gold Sponsor of the conference, so come and find us in the evening Sponsor Pavilion, held in the Zambezi room, on Monday and Tuesday, and we can demonstrate any of the MQGem products to you and you can enter our prize draw. Or just grab a beer from the bar and come and say “Hello”.

Paul Clarke and Morag Hughson will be there from MQGem Software, doing a number of technical sessions:-

Introduction to the MQI
Morag Hughson
Monday 1:00pm Leopardwood; Tuesday 2:30pm Aloeswood
Abstract: This entry level session will teach the basics of the beautifully simple MQ API – the MQI. You’ll have heard many describe how writing an application for MQ is very simple, just MQPUT a message, or MQGET a message. Come to this session and learn it for yourself. Example code in C and COBOL will be used, and a live demonstration using an API Exerciser will show how some of the input and output fields operate.

Abstract: This session will introduce you to the MQI message property calls. You’ll learn how to create message handles, and use them to populate, or read message properties on an IBM MQ message.

Using Application Activity Trace
Morag Hughson
Tuesday 9:50am Aloeswood; Wednesday 3:50pm Aloeswood
Abstract: Application Activity Trace is a feature of IBM MQ that allows you to discover exactly what the applications connected to your queue manager are doing. You can see the object names that they open and the options they use on the various verbs they call. You can find out about the size, persistence, priority and more, of your messages. Please note, this feature is only available on the Distributed platforms.

Introduction to MQ Clients
Paul Clarke
Tuesday 8:30am Aloeswood; Wednesday 1:00pm Leopardwood
Abstract: This session introduces the IBM MQ clients: what they are, on which platforms they run, and how customers use them in their applications. We will mainly focus on the ‘C’ IBM MQ MQI client, but will also introduce the Java and XMS clients. The session will also discuss a number of basic implementation considerations, including when it may be appropriate to use each client and describe new client features. The intent is to familiarize you with the things necessary to succeed with a simple IBM MQ client implementation.

Paul will also be giving two vendor sessions:-
