Deploying HCL OneTest API API exits

To enable sift and pass through, transport-level recording and queue recording with the mirror or dynamic mirror queue options, you must deploy the API Exits that are supplied with HCL Quality Server into the WebSphere® MQ Queue Manager.

Download the IBM® WebSphere MQ API exits for WebSphere MQ from HCL Quality Server and install it on the server that is hosting the queue manager. You must deploy the intercept exit modules to the exits directory on the server that is hosting the queue manager.

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.

The files must be copied to the correct location. Otherwise, IBM WebSphere MQ displays error messages and the API exit might not work correctly.

For general information about IBM WebSphere MQ API Exits, refer to WebSphere MQ documentation.

Note: This installation process requires administrative access to the queue manager and to the server where the queue manager is running.

To deploy IBM WebSphere MQ API exit:

  1. Install the relevant API exit file on the server that is hosting the queue manager that is to be configured.
  2. Configure the relevant queue manager to use the API exit.
  • For IBM WebSphere MQ V7.1,V7.5, V8.0 and V9.0, use the API exit modules located in the 7.1-9.0 folder.
The process depends on the operating system and architecture of the computer where WebSphere MQ is installed.
