Pinned topic API Specification

‏2002-06-06T13:59:15Z |
Where can I find a complete JavaDoc of MQe ?
As the doumentation really (sorry for this) sucks !

I am trying to use some of the not so very well documented methods (like
getQueue) and there is absolutely no JavaDoc that describes the parameters
used.

So where is it ?

This trial and error way of doing things is quite annoying (and time
consuming)

    I'm sorry.... but it looks like I have to eat my own hat here (almost)....

    There's still no Javadocs to be found.... But I found the Programmers
    Reference.....

    And the method getQueue is private (why is a mystery though)

    So I'll just have to browse the messages and cound them ? Seems a bit
    stupid.....

    Thomas,

    With regard to the JavaDoc, watch out for announced V2 release - this has
    updated documentation that will be more helpful.

    I'm not sure what function you are trying to achieve - access to queues is
    via name using the APIs in the MQeQueueManager.
    Can you post back with what you want to achieve?

    Matthew.

    But that still doesn't solve the problem that there is not JavaDoc available on MQ. We are doing a MQ specific project and are spending days combing through the IBM PDFs and Web sites, where if Java Docs were available, the documentation would be tied into the IDE at the developer's fingertips.

    Hi there,
    i also wondered about the javadoc of that "product". The examples have errors, they us undocumented classes and for a newbie as I am, there is no chance to through this API in a responsible time...so if there are any newer Versions of the documentation as that one shipped with the Version 2.0.1.1, please send me the link.

    thanx in advance
