3 :: What are the difference between internet explorer and Netscape Navigator on different versions?

When you are using Internet Explorer (IE) attached
documents created in Microsoft Office (Word, Excel,
PowerPoint) will open up in the content frame. Attached
Office documents in Netscape will ask you if you want to
"download the document to your hard drive" or "open it in
its current location." The former will not open the document
but save it to your computer. The latter will launch the
program in which the document was created.

With IE, pressing the Enter key will activate such buttons
as "Submit" and "Log-in". In Netscape you must actually
click on these buttons.

Note: Netscape does not always work properly. Sometimes
items an instructor adds will not appear where they should,
links may not function properly, etc. This is why it is
strongly encouraged that everyone use Internet Explorer 5.5
or above for all functions of Blackboard. In any case DO NOT
use the AOL browser. Certain functions such as assessments
do not work properly.

in DLQ.

The dead-letter queue is a local queue where messages are
put if they cannot be routed to their intended destination

You need to create a DLQ at the time of creating a Queue

8 :: What is MQSeries Cluster?

Cluster is said to be group of queue manager's logically
connected together to balance the load on the remote machine
(i.e if it is remote queue managers which processes your
message). And there are two types of grouping on the queue
1) Full repository
2) Partial repository.

The full repository queue manager knows all other queue
managers in the cluster and whenever a message comes to it,
and if that is unable to process the message, it will find
a queue in other queue manager in the cluster and ask it to
process the message.
