Whatever regression testing you usually perform for that application when you change it.

What kind of connection?

You don't connect to a queue. You connect to a queue manager.

Like I said, you don't connect to a queue, so you can ping the channel to determine if the MCA is responsive.

Perhaps the OP is using 'connection to a queue' is the JMS sense, using the QCF Queue Connection Factory that abstracts a JMS destination to an MQ queue.

In which case you "test" the connection by the presence (or not) of a JMS error when you instantiate the object.

It's unclear what you're asking.
In the first line, by "checkout" do you mean "test"?
In the second line, what better way is there to test it than just to try it?
Ask your application owner what tests they suggest to run when deploying a new version of their application.

There will be minimum Hardware and OS updates required by the new version, analyze if any issues acquiring them.

Check the differences/updates between your versions.
Ex: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21312967

Check how your clients are connecting and/or utilizing MQ

Make a list of all components with details, clients etc. Prepare the inventory!
Its your environment, get your ducks in row and put some effort before asking a question and be specific with your questions.

And, even knowing what's new in a new version, we can't tell you exactly what will be affected. Why? Because we don't know your applications and their requirements.
