Pymqi 0.4 is now available at http://www.hare.demon.co.uk/pymqi. This version adds interfaces to the MQINQ & MQSET MQI calls. These allow you to set & inquire Queue Manager & Queue attributes.
Pymqi is a Python extension for IBM's Messaging & Queuing middleware, MQSeries (aka WebSphere MQ family). This allows Python scripts to make calls directly to MQI to connect queues and get/put messages on them etc.
Pymqi combines the power of Python with the benefits of the messaging model. It can be used to develop test harnesses for MQ based systems, for rapid prototyping of MQ applications, for development of administrative GUI's (when combined with e.g., TkInter), and even for mainstream MQ application development!
Pymqi does not replace MQI, but is layered on top of it, so you must have MQ (either client or server) installed before you can use pymqi.
