The Message Queue installer has been enhanced to allow for registration of Message Queue with Sun Connection, a Sun-hosted service that helps you track, organize, and maintain Sun hardware and software.
As part of Message Queue installation, you can choose to register Message Queue with Sun Connection. Information about the installed Message Queue, such as the release version, host name, operating system, installation date, and other such basic information is securely transmitted to the Sun Connection database. The Sun Connection inventory service can help you organize your Sun hardware and software, while the update service can inform you of the latest available security fixes, recommended updates, and feature enhancements.
The following installer screen has been added to Message Queue 4.2 for Sun Connection registration:

# installer -r
The register-only mode requires that Message Queue 4.2 already be installed and will display only the installer screens related to registration.
