If you are not using WebSphere MQ V7, then this is your opportunity to kick the tires and give it a test drive.
The registration process just takes a minute, and then you can download the product for the platform of your choice. It took me about an hour to download the WebSphere MQ V188.8.131.52 for Windows Trial Version.
My WebSphere MQ Windows installation was painless. There were just a few questions to answer, and the installation completed in 12 minutes.
The WebSphere MQ Explorer was very easy to use; I was able to quickly configure two queue manages and send messages from one queue manager to another.
