WebSphere V6 support ends in September 2012

By Wendy Sanacore
IBM announced that program services for WebSphere® MQ V 6.0, WebSphere® MQ V 6.0.1 and WebSphere® MQ for z/OS V 6.0  will be discontinued as of September 2012.
IBM had previously announced an end to support effective September, 2011, but has since extended the date.
With the discontinuation of WebSphere V6, it is time for companies utilizing it to begin thinking about an upgrade to V7.
The latest version of WebSphere supports Java EE5, Web Services Enhancements and Web 2.0 Feature Pack.
About TxMQ
Since it’s inception, TxMQ has specialized in Mainframe software and mainframe systems support offerings. As mainframe software and mainframe applications and subsystems like DB2, z/OS, CICS, MQ, and DB2 continued to grow in popularity, so too did TxMQ’s offerings.
These expanded to include technologies like virtualization solutions including linux virtualization, network virtualization (cloud computing), and desktop virtualization, as well as mainframe modernization.
As the web became more prevalent and a part of the enterprise, we followed IBM’s offerings and added skilled resources and SME’s in areas like websphere, bpm and soa, including both Lombardi, and metastorm (now a part of open text), as well as Datapower.
