Starting and stopping IBM Websphere MQ on a Redhat Enterprise Linux box

Here’s a little script I made for starting and stopping Websphere MQ on a RHEL 4. It is useful for a simple configuration with one Queue Manager and listener. Just put your queue manager name in the QMGR variable and the listener port to the PORT variable, and save the script to your /etc/init.d.

Please understand that this script does not check if the processes actually stay up or die as they should. But it is useful for automating the tasks during a reboot.
