Channel name (CHANNEL)

This attribute specifies the name of the channel definition.

The name can contain up to 20 characters, although as both ends of a message channel must have the same name, and other implementations might have restrictions on the size, the actual number of characters might have to be smaller.

Where possible, channel names are unique to one channel between any two queue managers in a network of interconnected queue managers.

The name must contain characters from the following list:

  1. Embedded blanks are not allowed, and leading blanks are ignored.
  2. On systems using EBCDIC Katakana, you cannot use lowercase characters.

This attribute is valid for all channel types.
