WMQ V8 and MQAUSXJ Client-side Java Bug

The following was recently reported:

When MQAUSXJ is used with a client application that is using WMQ V8 Java Jar files, the connection is closed with reason code 2407.

It appears that IBM changed the behavior of a field, instead of empty (i.e. blank) field, they now set the field to null.

If anyone is having this particular issue then send an email to support@capitalware.biz and we will send you the latest release of MQAUSXJ.jar file.

More Sessions Added to MQTC v2.0.1.4

I was working on the scheduling for MQ Technical Conference v2.0.1.4 (MQTC) and I have a problem. It’s a little embarrassing but I have far more sessions than actual timeslots!!

I was originally scheduling for 70 technical sessions and 10-15 vendor sessions but now, we will have 85 70 technical sessions and 10-15 vendor sessions. Each technical session will be 60 minutes and the vendor sessions will be 45 minutes. There will be breaks between sessions, so that people can relax, get a coffee/tea and not be rushing around.

In case you did not read my announcement, IBM MQ Labs in Hursley, UK will be sending 4 speakers (Mark Taylor, Morag Hughson, Dave Ware & Matthew Whitehead) to MQTC v2.0.1.4. We now have a total of 17 speakers covering a wide-range of MQ related topics.

MQTC is the largest conference in the world solely dedicated to IBM MQ (aka WebSphere MQ/MQSeries).
