New: Universal File Mover v1.2.1

Capitalware is pleased to announce the release of Universal File Mover v1.2.1. It is a free open source project.

Universal File Mover is more than a simple tool to manage the transfer of files. It allows the user to combine business processes into a workflow. The user combines a series of Action commands to create the UFM Workflow XML file. UFM is supported on AIX, HP-UX, IBM i (OS/400), Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris and Windows.


  • Added reconnection code to MQReceive (and for Status Queue connection) and now it will wait forever to reconnect.
  • Added code to get and display MQ JAR version
  • Added “catch (Exception e)” clauses in UFM’s MQ code to prevent unhandled exceptions
  • Updated Shell Scripts (32-bit & 64-bit) to correctly handle the MQ_JAVA_LIB_PATH environment variable

For more information on Universal File Mover, please go to:

Note: When upgrading UFM from an ealier release, please remember to deploy the receiver side first because the MQSend action defaults to use MQ properties. There is a new MQSend attribute called ‘usev7prop’. It defaults to ‘Y’. The user can set the ‘usev7prop’ attribute to ‘N’ and it will use the old style handling for the Remote FileName and Directory.
