Introduction to MQ Explorer

MQ Explorer is the graphical user interface in which you can administer and monitor IBM® MQ objects, whether they are hosted by your local computer or on a remote system.

MQ Explorer runs on Windows and Linux® x86. It can remotely connect to queue managers that are running on any supported platform [z/OS] including z/OS®, enabling your entire messaging backbone to be viewed, explored, and altered from the console.

MQ Explorer is built on open source Eclipse technology. As such, MQ Explorer is highly customizable and fully extensible. You can add new tools as plug-ins to MQ Explorer to provide new features in a way that is integrated into the console.
