Using MQ from IDMS

For those of you using MQ, how are you providing programmatic access?
Third party interface?

In-house developed interface?

Something else?

 

Regardless of the interface in use, what programming language(s) are you using?

ADS?

COBOL?

Assembler?

PL/I?

Other?

 

For the record, we use MQ, but it is from the CICS environment. I have recently been asked to determine whether or not we can access MQ directly from IDMS, specifically from within the ADS environment. We are looking for ideas, suggestions, pitfalls, etc. We know that there is an IDEA in the system asking for MQ access from within IDMS, but there is no indication that it is "around the corner" or "light years away".

 

For those vendors out there, please refrain from making a sales call or pitch. This discussion is purely for the thought process. Thank you in advance for your cooperation on this.
