The MQ Visual Edit application allows users to view, manipulate and manage messages in a queue of a WebSphere MQ (formally MQSeries) queue manager and presents the data in a simplified format similar to a database utility or spreadsheet program.

MQ Visual Edit is a great tool for application programmers, JMS developers, quality assurance testers, and production support personnel. The tool allows for quick problem solving because the data is presented in a very logical and insightful manner.

MQ Visual Edit can run on any platform that supports Java v1.4 (or higher). This includes: AIX, HP-UX, Linux, Mac OS X, OS/2 Warp, Sun Solaris, Windows 95/98/ME, and Windows NT/2000/XP/Vista. MQ Visual Edit is able to connect to local queue managers (residing on the same box) or to any remote queue managers.

The remote queue managers can be on any platform that supports distributed queuing including: AIX, HP-UX, Linux, OS/2 Warp, OS/400 (iSeries), Sun Solaris, Windows NT/2000/XP and z/OS (OS/390).

MQ Visual Edit has been designed to support Java's Multi-Language environment. Full language support for the following languages: English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Romanian, and Spanish

Security:
    - MQ Visual Edit supports SSL for connecting to remote queue managers.
    - MQ Visual Edit supports 3rd party security exit for connecting to remote queue managers.
Major Features:
    - Ability to open and display multiple queues from multiple queue managers.
    - Ability to add, open and manage favorites.
    - Ability to compare the contents of a message on a queue to a file. Differences are highlighted in a dual-display window.
    - Import / Export all messages or selected messages to / from a text file or multiple text files.
    - Backup / Restore all messages or selected messages to/from a file. The backup includes both the MQMD and the data. Great for replaying messages.
    - Print a selected message.
    - Ability to edit / update the message's MQMD fields.
    - Includes 3 Stress Testing Tools: Get Server, Put Server and a SIM Server.
    - Includes 2 Monitoring Tools: Monitor Queue and Monitor Stats Queue.
    - Includes 4 'Other Tools': Visual Difference, Text Editor, Tail File and Calendar.
    - Supports Copy / Cut / Paste between other desktop applications.
    - The user can edit the message in a Hex Editor (also EBCDIC mode available)
    - The user can view their messages in a XML tree (via the builtin XML Viewer)
    - Support for well-known WMQ messages formats: MQMD, MQRFH, MQRFH2, MQCIH, MQDEAD, MQIIH, MQXMIT, MQHSAP and SMQBAD.
    - MQ Visual Edit now defaults to using the VisualStudio2005 Look and Feel theme. The OfficeXP and VisualStudio2005 Look and Feel themes are provided by Robert Futrell's open source project called: OfficeLnFs.
Note: For any of the MQ Tools or Other Tools, you can have unlimited number of them running (up to what your box can support).

Stress Testing Servers:
- The Get Server will continuously consume messages from a queue and show statistics of its current state.
- The Put Server will put messages to a queue. It can be used to stress test a 'Server Component'. The user can start multiple copies of the Put Server to stress your server. The user can control the feed by putting a delay between puts. The message data can be from a screen text box or from a text file or from a VEQ Backup file (this file can contain many messages with MQMDs - therefore, the Put Server will be sets of messages.).
- The SIM Server will continuously consume messages and send a reply message for each incoming request message. The message data can be from a screen text box or from a text file or from a VEQ Backup file (this file can contain many messages with MQMDs - therefore, each request message the SIM Server will generate multiple reply messages.).

Monitoring Tools:
- The Queue Monitor will continuously monitor the queues of a queue manager displaying the Queue Name, Current Queue Depth, Max Queue Depth, Open Input Count, Open Output Count, Get Enabled / Inhibited and Put Enabled / Inhibited.
- The Queue Stats Monitor will continuously monitor the queues of a queue manager displaying the Queue Name, Put Rate (enqueue rate), Get Rate (dequeue rate), High Queue Depth and Max Queue Depth.

Other Tools:
- The Visual Difference is a simple file to file comparison tool. It visually displays differences between 2 files. The differences are hightlighted: Green for inserts, Red for deletions and Blue for changes.
- The Text Editor is a simple multi-purpose plain-text editor. The Text Editor supports multi-file editing.
- The Tail File is a simple multi-purpose plain-text editor. The Tail File supports monitoring of multiple files at the same time.
- The Calendar will dislay a scrolling 3-month calendar view.
