Question on MQ

HI All,

I am new to MQ and need to write a program which writes something to a queue. The queue will be read by other application. I have written the code and able to post the data to the queue. However, the problem is when the data is read from the queue, the message comes out in a byte[] format. whereas the expected is to be a String.

I am writing the message using

msg.writeString() method

and putting it putting it on the queue using

queue.put(msg, new MQPutMessageOptions());

Can somebody point me how to write a message so its read as a String rather than a byte[]?
