It’s been 4 solid weeks of writing text and running tests. Always a scramble at the end, and there’s always more that you can think of writing.
The MQ V7.1 and V7.5 book from which the new Primer was extracted has now completed its journey through graphics design and editing and is available here in pdf, epub and (in a few days) hardcopy. Thanks to those people who provided comments on the draft.
A couple of the other authors wrote about their experiences in this blog post.
The MQ Primer discussed here and here has completed its journey through the editing and production process, and is now available at http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/redpieces/abstracts/redp0021.html
Downloads are available in both PDF and EPUB format. You can also use calibre to convert to mobi format for Kindles.
The first public draft of the full V7.1 and V7.5 redbook is now available. The (very) big brother of the new MQ primer has about 450 pages of information and scenarios. As a draft, again, it’s subject to change before final publication.
This book is completely new. It covers a mix of features on both distributed and z/OS platforms.
