I am probably being pedantic, but the MQ manual seems to switch terminology between the use of the terms MQI (Message Queue Interface) and API (Application Programming Interface) in different parts of the manual. In my mind, MQI = API. Does anyone disagree? I am trying to make sure I am not missing a subtlety here between the two terms, or if they are indeed synonymous.

The MQI is a specific API.

The Java classes are a separate API.

The JMS support is a third API.

The .NET support is a fourth API.

etc. etc. etc...

PCF and mqsc are an administrative API.

Ok, so the MQI is the API for procedural languages then? Thanks, that helps!

The MQI is the API for procedural languages, or that can bind to C libraries.

More categorical than pedantic. Hereabouts we strive for precision and clarity.

Thanks for the encouragement, but I still do plan on attending my PA (Pedants Anonymous) meetings.
