Installing API exits on Solaris (SPARC)

This procedure explains how to install the API exit on a Solaris SPARC system.

About this task

You must be a WebSphere® MQ user (created during the IBM® WebSphere MQ installation), for example, user mqm to install the API exit on a Solaris SPARC system.


  1. Locate the exits64 directory and exits directory of your IBM WebSphere MQ installation (for example, /var/mqm/exits64) and /var/mqm/exits, respectively).
  2. Copy intercept_solaris_sparc64 and intercept_solaris_sparc32 from package to the exits64 directory and the exits directory, respectively.

    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.

    • 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.
  3. Create a symbolic link to this module:
    cd /var/mqm/exits64
    ln –s intercept_solaris_sparc64 intercept
    cd /var/mqm/exits
    ln –s intercept_solaris_sparc32 intercept
  4. Make the exit module globally executable:
    chown mqm intercept_solaris_*
    chgrp mqm intercept_solaris_*
    chmod a+x intercept_solaris_*
