GSS Chat Starter Edition is installed in two different ways:
As an integrated extension to the IBM® MQ Explorer, for use by the Chat Administrator.
Installed into Eclipse™, and run as a stand-alone program, using an IBM MQ Client, for use by end-users
GSS Chat Starter Edition allows an administrator to enable GSS Chat on an IBM MQ queue manager, and on it create Chat Users, and optionally add them to one or more Chat Groups. The administrator can also create electronic notices, which can be seen by all Chat Users, or by all Chat Users in a particular Chat Group.
GSS Chat Starter Edition allows end-users to log into an IBM MQ queue manager enabled for GSS Chat using the Chat User name and password defined by the Chat Administrator, chat with another end-user or with the Chat Administrator in real-time, and view the electronic notices issued on the electronic notice board.
