Loanet Client-side MQ Security Exit

It has been brought to my attention that the client-side MQ Security Exit required by SunGard’s Loanet has the EXACT same format as the client-side Security Exit for Depository Trust Clearing Corporation.

Therefore, if your company is interacting with Loanet and requires a client-side MQ Security Exit, you can use SX4DTC2 and/or z/SX4DTC2.

For more information about SX4DTC2, please go to:
http://www.capitalware.com/sx4dtc2_overview.html
Or for z/SX4DTC2, please go to:
http://www.capitalware.com/sx4dtc2_zos_overview.html

Note: Both SX4DTC2 and z/SX4DTC2 are licensed as free products. They are free to use but support is not included. A support license may be purchased.

Capitalware Inc. would like to announce the official release of MQTT Message Viewer V1.2.0. This is a FREE upgrade for ALL licensed users of MQTT Message Viewer.

MQTT Message Viewer is an MQTT (MQ Telemetry Transport) client that connects to an MQTT Broker. MQTT is a machine-to-machine (M2M)/Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity protocol. MQTT Message Viewer supports MQTT 3.1 and 3.1.1 protocol versions.

MQTT Message Viewer allows users to subscribe, publish, edit, copy, delete, forward, backup, restore, import and export messages of a topic. MQTT Message Viewer is a great tool for IoT (Internet of Things) application programmers, developers, quality assurance testers, and production support personnel.

    Changes for MQTT Message Viewer v1.2.0:

  • Added the topic string field that the message belongs to on the Message Properties panel
  • Increased the ‘Topic String’ width when ‘Show Message Property Columns’ is selected
  • Fixed an issue with the Test button on the MQTT Broker Profile window
  • Fixed an issue with coloring the main table when the topic string contains either ‘#’ or ‘+’.
  • Fixed button selection coloring on macOS.
  • Added code to update screen title with either (1) days remaining in subscription or (2) days remaining in trial.
