The Message Multiplexer (MMX) application will get a message from a WebSphere MQ queue and output it to one or more queues. Context information is maintained across the message put(s). MMX can move messages from a single source queue to (up to) 99 target queues. Messages put to each target queue are an exact replicate of the original message from the source queue (including the message's MQMD). MMX performs each MQGET and the subsequent "n" MQPUT(s) under a Unit of Work (UOW), so that message integrity is kept.
The Message Router (MRTR) application will move a message from a central WebSphere MQ queue to a specific application WebSphere MQ queue. The destination queue that the message will be placed into will be based on a keyword in the message. Context information is maintained. MRTR will look in the message for a Start Keyword and an End Keyword. The value between these two keywords is the Keyword Value (inifile Token). MRTR will search its ini file for that particular Keyword Value. The field value associated with the looked-up keyword value is the destination queue name. MRTR performs each MQGET and the subsequent MQPUT under a Unit of Work (UOW) so that message integrity is kept.
PyMQI is a Python library for working with WebSphere MQ (formerly known as MQSeries) implementing MQI and PCF protocols. It allows one to connect to queues, put, browse, get messages, and to programmatically administer MQ objects. PyMQI has been used in production environments for several years and is known to work on Linux, Windows, Solaris, AIX, and HP-UX with queue managers running on Linux, Windows, Solarix, AIX, HP-UX, and z/OS mainframe.
