Configuring WebSphere MQ

Please follow these steps:

  1. In the WebSphere MQ Explorer Navigator pane, click on the 'IBM WebSphere MQ' node to expand it.
  2. Create a queue manager by right clicking on the Queue Manager node and selecting New -> Queue Manager.
  3. In the opened window, enter the name MQTest in the Name text box. Ensure that you choose a port which is not already in use. Otherwise, accept the default options by clicking Next until you reach 'Finish' and finally click Finish. Keep a record of these settings as they will be used later in the configuration of the bindings.
  4. Right click on the Queues node under MQTest queue manager. Select New -> Local Queue.
  5. Enter 'MQSenderQueue' as the name for the local MQ queue. Click Next and Finish.
  6. Repeat the above two steps to create another local queue called 'MQReceiverQueue.'
  7. Create a new channel for the new MQTest Queue Manager.
    1. Expand Queue Managers -> MQTest -> Advanced -> Channels -> New -> Server-connection Channel
    2. Name: mysvrconnchannel
    3. Keep all other values as default.
    4. Click Next -> Finish.
