Put these files into a directory.

com.ibm.xmq.events-1.6.jar
javax.mail.jar
mail.config
xmqdspev.sh

javax.mail.jar is not included, but is found on javamail.java.net.

Update the xmqdspev.sh script according to the instructions.  java.library.path will be something like /usr/lpp/mqm/V7R0M1/java/lib and don’t forget to add javax.mail.jar to the classpath.  Mine looks like this:

Update mail.config to suit your needs.

Then run with JCL:
