I am trying to do some research on MQ API for .Net. I noticed that you can use either of the 3 dlls for you API. I am confused on which to use for my application. Can somebody give me the benefits/Adv/Disadv of using each? Or even when to use what dll??? If you also have a link to a documentation that will be awesome!

Thanks!

mqm.dll - c style entry points for direct calls to server
mqic32.dll - c style entry points for calls via client
imq*.dll - c++ interfact ('s' for server, 'c' for client)
mqax200.dll - active x interface
amqmdnet.dll - .net interface
(and there's probably a lot more)

You use the one appropriate for what you are doing, for example in C you link with mqm.lib or mqic32.lib to build a server or client app. With .net you add a statement to indicate you will be using that dll etc etc

.NET - docs are installed along with csd05 (csqzav01.pdf), all others look at the (online) manuals

Thanks for your immediate response. Where and how do I get amqmdnet.dll? I am running Win2K with MQSeries client 5.3 CSD04. I tried to google it and people are saying I need the CSD05. Is this a fix from IBM? Do you have a url where I can download this?

Got it from IMB MQ SupportPack - MA7P! Thanks again.

Here's the link if anybody is interested:

Instead of using MA7P, download CSD05 for 5.3, which has the officially supported versions of these classes.

The MA7P is a Level 2 Support Pack, i.e. no "official" support.

Is my MQ server needed to install CSD005 too in order for the .net classes to work?

No, you can run the CSD05 against the 5.3 Client only.

I was able to install CSD05. But when I run strmqm to verify my installation it is giving me an error that says:

AMQ8118 WebSphere MQ queue manager does not exist.

I have my environment variable all set up and it is running fine when I issue an amqsputc command.

I also did to issue a crtmqm command but it also failed.

What do I have to do?

Thanks!

The commands that you listed are only to be run on a machine that has full MQServer installed. They are invalid on a MQClient only machine.

Am I correct in understanding that only the client needs to be 5.3 CSD05 to enable native .NET support? The server can be 5.3 CSD04?

Thanks

Correct. The client is where the .NET code is actually running, so that is the only place that needs the new dll (amqmdnet.dll).

The server can be whatever version you want.
