I am new to MQ. I am using the attached program to put a Text message in the Websphere MQ in C#. Now I need to put a binary file to the Remote Queue. How can I do that? Any code sample available?


using System;
using IBM.WMQ;
public class MQSample1
    private String qManager = "QMQB01"; //define name of queue
    //manager to connect to.
    private MQQueueManager qMgr;  //define a queue manager object
    static void Main(string[] args)
        new MQSample1();
    public MQSample1()
            //Create a connection to the queue manager
            qMgr = new MQQueueManager(qManager);
            //Set up the options on the queue we wish to open...
            //Note.All WebSphere MQ Options are prefixed with MQC
            int openOptions =  MQC.MQOO_OUTPUT;
            //MQC.MQOO_INPUT_AS_Q_DEF |
            //Now specify the queue that we wish to open,
            //and the open options...
            MQQueue system_default_local_queue = qMgr.AccessQueue("Q.EZL01.SEP.CMCC.001.S1", openOptions);
            //Define a simple WebSphere MQ message,and write some text in UTF format..
            MQMessage hello_world = new MQMessage();
            hello_world.WriteUTF("Hello World!");
            //specify the message options...
            MQPutMessageOptions pmo = new MQPutMessageOptions(); //accept the defaults,
            //same as MQPMO_DEFAULT
            //put the message on the queue
            system_default_local_queue.Put(hello_world, pmo);
            //Close the queue...
            //Disconnect from the queue manager
        //If an error has occurred in the above,try to identify what went wrong
        //Was it a WebSphere MQ error?
        catch (MQException ex)
            Console.WriteLine("A WebSphere MQ error occurred :Completion code " +
            ex.CompletionCode + "Reason code " + ex.ReasonCode);
        //Was it a System error?
        catch (System.Exception ex)
            Console.WriteLine("A System error occurred:" + ex);
}//end of sample

1) Use
   hello_world.write( byte[] );
instead of
    hello_world.WriteUTF("Hello World!");

2) Set the FORMAT field in MQMD to 'MQC.MQFMT_NONE' (8 spaces).
   hello_world.format = MQC.MQFMT_NONE;

Many thanks. Yes I can now upload the binary file. But I need to set some property which is not the MQ Default property. I have some code example where the JMS is used to set these properties but I need to set these property as well. How can I set those property ?

MQQueueConnectionFactory factory = new MQQueueConnectionFactory();
qConn = factory.createQueueConnection("qbuser", "password");
qSession = qConn.createQueueSession(false, 1);
MQQueue q = new MQQueue("Q.EZL01.SEP.CMCC.001.02");
sender = qSession.createSender(q);
BytesMessage msg = qSession.createBytesMessage();
msg.setStringProperty("FILENAME", filename);
msg.setStringProperty("BLOB_ID", blobID);
As in the above code I also have to set those two property "FILENAME" & "BLOBID". How can I set those property using MQMessage in C#.
