Installing API exits on AIX

You can install the API exit on IBM® AIX® systems by copying the intercept_aix_ppc32 and intercept_aix_ppc32_r files into the exits directory.

About this task

To install the API exit on an AIX system, do the following steps:

Procedure

  1. Locate the exits directory of your IBM WebSphere® MQ installation (for example, /var/mqm/exits/Installation1/).
  2. Copy intercept_aix_ppc32 and intercept_aix_ppc32_r from IBMWebSphereMQdist.zip package to the exits directory.

    The distributed WebSphere MQ API Exit .zip file that contains the sample scripts can also be downloaded from HCL Quality Server itself. For more information, see HCL OneTest™ API tool packages.

    Note:
    • For IBM WebSphere MQ 7.1, 7.5, 8.0 and 9.0, use the API exit modules located in the 7.1-9.0 folder.
  3. Create symbolic links to these modules:
    ln –s intercept_aix_ppc32 intercept
    ln –s intercept_aix_ppc32_r intercept_r
  4. Make the exit modules globally executable:
    cd /var/mqm/exits/Installation1/
    chown mqm intercept_aix_*
    chgrp mqm intercept_aix_*
    chmod a+rx intercept_aix_*
  5. Locate the exits64 directory of your IBM WebSphere MQ installation (for example, /var/mqm/exits64/Installation1/).
  6. Copy intercept_aix_ppc64 and intercept_aix_ppc64_r from IBMWebSphereMQdist.zip package to the exits64 directory.
    Note:
    • For IBM WebSphere MQ 7.1, 7.5, 8.0 and 9.0, use the API exit modules located in the 7.1-9.0 folder.
  7. Create symbolic links to these modules:
    ln –s intercept_aix_ppc64 intercept
    ln –s intercept_aix_ppc64_r intercept_r
  8. Make the exit files globally executable:
    cd /var/mqm/exits64/Installation1/
    chown mqm intercept_aix_*
    chgrp mqm intercept_aix_*
    chmod a+rx intercept_aix_*
