MQSeries can be used in a batch environement. I'm currently adding MQSeries functionality to our batch environment to communicate with CICS and JAVA applications. The programs and parms are almost identical between batch and CICS.

Connections between systems are sender/receiver "channels" (usually TCPIP) controlled by the Channel Initiator task. The Queue Manager task handles the activity putting/getting messages on the queues. These tasks must be customized and started on your z/OS system.
