What’s new in IBM MQ 9.3?

The latest long-term support (LTS) and continuous delivery (CD) release of IBM MQ will be released for the distributed platforms on June 23, 2022.

IBM MQ 9.3, again, has a focus on securely powering cloud-native applications across hybrid-multicloud as well as making it easier to get started.

The MQ 9.3 release includes:

  • An improved getting-started experience.
  • Simplified cloud-native deployment and improved high availability, scalability, and resilience.
  • The ability to tap into existing data with streaming queues – see our blog post on this here.
  • Enhanced administration with the MQ Console, whilst the MQ Explorer has been removed from the IBM MQ install package.
  • Security enhancements that build on the existing robust security mechanisms in MQ.
  • Enhancements to IBM MQ Advanced Managed File Transfer capabilities – see our page on MFT support here.
  • Updates to the supported platforms i.e. Adoptium and IBM Semeru Java 11, Oracle and Adoptium Java 17, Windows 11, JMS 3.0, NET 6 support.

Nastel has been participating with the development team on this technology and analyzing the impact and benefits to our customers as part of our own cloud and container initiatives.
