  • amqsput is a sample program, which can be used to put a message on IBM WebSphere MQ Queues.

    The sample program (amqsput) gets installed on Windows when you install either Client or Server. However, on Linux – you must install sample RPM. If you haven’t then you will not have amqsput file available under bin folder.

    Sample program RPM is included in MQ 8 installer, all you got to do is install this RPM to start using amqsput program.

    If you have installed MQ 8 as explained here, you will have MQSeriesSamples-8.0.0-2.x86_64.rpm under server folder.

    Install MQ Sample Program

    • Go to the location where you have MQSeriesSamples-8.0.0-2.x86_64.rpm
    • Use rpm command to install this package
    rpm –ivh MQSeriesSamples-8.0.0-2.x86_64.rpm
    [[email protected] server]# rpm -ivh MQSeriesSamples-8.0.0-2.x86_64.rpm

    Now, amqsput is installed and available under /opt/mqm/samp/bin folder.

    -bash-4.2$ ./amqsput
    Sample AMQSPUT0 start
    Required parameter missing – queue name
    -bash-4.2$

    This helped me and I hope you too.
