IBM MQ customer-installable Knowledge Center
You can download IBM® MQ messaging documentation into an offline version of IBM Documentation that you install locally.
The IBM MQ customer-installable Knowledge Center (MQ KC) has two components:
- The MQ KC framework.
- The documentation packages that you install into the framework.
You can run MQ KC on AIX®, Windows, or Linux®, or under an application server (WebSphere® Liberty profile).
- Installing the MQ KC framework.
You download the framework for your platform from Fix Central. To do this, you must have a license for a current IBM MQ product.
- Installing messaging documentation into the framework.
You get the documentation packages from the IBM MQ documentation download site. You can install documentation for multiple products and versions into the same MQ KC framework. The documentation packages are updated frequently. To stay current, you should occasionally pick up and reinstall the latest version of these packages.
Links to the available downloads are given in the following sections. Detailed installation instructions are provided in a readme file at the root of each package that you download.
