This post talks about a simpler way to develop Java applications for MQ, using a Maven repository to automatically install dependencies.
Application development for MQ requires access to the language-specific interfaces, libraries, headers, DLLs etc. You write an application and, depending on the language, the MQ-provided components are used within the IDE while you are writing code, checked during build processes, or referenced at runtime. If you want to make your application available to other people, then they will need access to at least the runtime MQ interfaces.
We made it much easier to distribute applications with the release of the MQ Redistributable Client packages.
And now we’ve also made it easier to write Java applications, so that you do not need to explicitly install anything before using MQ’s interfaces.
