Deprecated, stabilized, and removed features in IBM MQ 9.3.0
A number of features are deprecated, stabilized or removed from IBM® MQ 9.3.0.
|Deprecation: Ciphers used by AMS||The following signing and encryption algorithms from the Advanced Message Security (AMS)
component are deprecated from IBM MQ 9.3.0: MD5, SHA1, RC2,
DES and 3DES. IBM intends to remove support for these
algorithms in a future IBM MQ release.
Customers using these algorithms should migrate to stronger algorithms such as: SHA256, SHA384, SHA512, AES128 or AES256.
|Deprecation: 32-bit IBM MQ client library||The 32-bit IBM MQ client library has been deprecated from IBM MQ 9.3.0 for all platforms, both for network and local binding connections. 32-bit applications will be supported for the duration of the IBM MQ 9.3.0 LTS lifecycle, but might be removed in a future CD or LTS release. 32-bit applications should be recompiled as 64-bit to ensure that IBM MQ applications can be migrated to future IBM MQ client libraries.|
|Deprecation: Secure Sockets Layer v3 (SSLv3) and TLS 1.0 1||For Long Term Support, Secure Sockets Layer v3 (SSLv3) and TLS 1.0 have been deprecated from IBM MQ 9.2.0. This means that IBM MQ 9.2.0 was the release last to provide SSLv3 and TLS 1.0 support for Long Term Support. The plan is to remove support in a future Continuous Delivery release after that.|
|Deprecation: Support for -credentialsFile parameter 1||The -credentialsFile parameter of the fteObfuscate command, used in IBM MQ prior to IBM MQ 9.2, has been deprecated from IBM MQ 9.2.0. You can use the -f parameter instead. For more information, see fteObfuscate: encrypt sensitive data.|
|Deprecation: Support for all Managed File Transfer environment variables beginning with FTE 1||Support for all Managed File Transfer
environment variables that begin with FTE has been deprecated from IBM MQ 9.2.0. You can substitute FTE environment
variables with those that begin with BFG as shown in the following examples:
- These deprecations are carried forward to IBM MQ 9.3 from IBM MQ 9.2.
|Stabilization: amqmdnet.dll library 1||From IBM MQ 9.2.0, the amqmdnet.dll library for
.NET Framework is still supplied, but this library is
stabilized; that is, no new features will be introduced into it.
For any of the latest features you must migrate to the amqmdnetstd.dll library. However, you can continue to use the amqmdnet.dll library on IBM MQ 9.1 or later Long Term Support or Continuous Delivery releases.
For more information, see Installing IBM MQ classes for .NET.
|Stabilization: IBM.XMS.* libraries 1||From IBM MQ 9.2.0, all the IBM.XMS.* libraries are
still supplied, but these libraries are stabilized; that is, no new features will be introduced into
For any of the latest features, you must migrate to the amqmxmsstd.dll library. However, you can continue to use the existing libraries on IBM MQ 9.1 Long Term Support or Continuous Delivery releases.
For more information, see Using IBM MQ classes for XMS .NET Standard.
- These stabilizations are carried forward to IBM MQ 9.3 from IBM MQ 9.2.
|IBM MQ 9.3.0 initial release|
|Removal: Dashboard Web Console||The widget-based Dashboard Web Console is removed from IBM MQ 9.3.0. For information about using the Dashboard Web Console, see The Dashboard Web Console in the IBM MQ 9.1 documentation.|
|Removal: XMS .NET Multicast messaging||XMS .NET Multicast messaging (using RMM) is removed from IBM MQ 9.3.0.|
|Removal: fteMigrateAgent, fteMigrateConfigurationOptions, and fteMigrateLogger commands||For Long Term Support, the
fteMigrateAgent, fteMigrateConfigurationOptions, and
fteMigrateLogger commands are removed at IBM MQ 9.3.0.
These commands were removed at IBM MQ 9.2.1.
