You have been waiting for an APAR for WebSphere MQ JMS to be resolved within a WebSphere Application Server fix pack and the day has finally come! You have applied the fix pack for WebSphere Application Server and to your surprise the problem you previously encountered is continuing to occur.
First, it is important to verify which version of WebSphere MQ resource is included with WebSphere Application Server fixpacks. In order to do so, please review the document "Which version of WebSphere MQ is shipped with WebSphere Application Server?"
Once you have determined the version of the resource adapter associated with your version of WebSphere Application Server, you should determine the version of the resource adapter which is being used after the WebSphere Application Server fix pack was applied. As long as you are using WebSphere Application Server V7.0 fix pack 1, you will be able to view the JVM logs for message WMSG1703I. The message looks similar to the following:
WMSG1703I: RAR implementation version 7.0.
The above version signifies that this is V188.8.131.52 of WebSphere MQ resource adapter that is installed. If the WMSG1703I message does not show the fix pack level you were expecting, then you will need to manually upgrade it using the instructions documented in the information center in section Ensuring that servers use the latest available WebSphere MQ resource adapter maintenance level.
