Simple example of sending a message to IBM Websphere MQ with Clojure and the IBM Websphere MQ JMS classes.
;; Simple example of sending a message to Websphere MQ with Clojure
;; Uses the Websphere MQ JMS classes (i.e. JMS-like in API, but
;; submits to a MQ queue)
;; Author: Frederico Munoz <>
;; Date: 20-Jun-2013

;; See for all the
;; client downloads available; the following jar files should be in
;; the classpath:
;; -
;; - jms.jar
;; This is just a quick example that tries to keep it as simple as
;; possible; this means no error checking, catch/try, or even any
;; degree of optimisation that could make the example less obvious, no
;; checking return codes.
;; Use of leiningen is recommended for any more advanced use, but
;; assuming all the jars are in the current directory the following
;; should work
;; $ java -cp clojure.main mqm.clj
