I'm happy to announce the release of PyMQI 1.1.


PyMQI allows users to connect Python applications to WebSphere MQ queue

It can be used to develop test harnesses for WebSphere MQ based systems,
for rapid prototyping of WebSphere MQ applications, for development
of administrative GUIs or for mainstream MQ application development.

PyMQI has been used in production environments for several years on 
Linux, Windows, Solaris and AIX with queue managers running on Linux, 
Windows, Solarix, AIX and z/OS mainframe. Supported WebSphere MQ 
versions are 5.0, 5.1, 5.3, 6.0 and 7.0.

*What's new*

* Added support for Windows AMD64,
* Fixed several bugs related to PCF processing,
* Added 20+ usage examples to documentation,
* Created a PyMQI mailing list at It's a good 
place to join if you'd like to be informed of upcoming releases and new 
planned features.

*Hello world with PyMQI*

Here's an example showing how easy it is to connect to WebSphere MQ and 
put a message on a queue.

import pymqi

qmgr = pymqi.QueueManager(None)
qmgr.connectTCPClient("QM.1",, "SVRCONN.CHANNEL.1", 

q = pymqi.Queue(qmgr, "TEST.QUEUE.1")
q.put("Hello from Python")
