While I was browsing MQ message using /opt/mqm/samp/bin amqsbcg command. I got the below format.
The payload part came in 2 format - Hex and the text, is there a way to only print "Text"format , I don't see a option to do that.
Can anyone help me out to find a better way to browse MQ message without actually paying for a third party tool.

That's not strictly a tool, that's a piece of sample code. It would be fairly straightforward to modify the code to do it (though the option does not exist in the sample code as IBM provides it)

There are a fair variety of free 3rd party tools; the contents of the old IH03 support pac is what I've been using for decades.

Have you tried the other supplied utilities, like amqsget and amqsgbr?

You could try recompiling amqsbcg.c with the following mods:
- Change "#define CHARS_PER_LINE 16" to 64 (or other suitable value)
- Remove 2 lines of code "printf("%02X",Buffer[ch] );"
- Remove the 2 sections of code that have header comments:
/* pad with blanks to format the last line correctly */
/* leave extra space between columns if MBCS characters possible */

hi bruce, thank you for providing this information. I didn't try amqsget for the fear that I may lose the queue message with it but amqsgbr did the job. it printed the xml data message in readable format which is what I exactly wanted.

Yes, the amqsget and amqsgetc supplied utilities do a destructive consume of messages from the queue. As mentioned earlier by my esteemed colleaguer, you have the source code for many supplied sample apps; so you can modify them to meet your needs.
