APAR status

  • Closed as documentation error.

Error description

  • The client documentation has an ambiguous statement which can
    lead to confusion as to whether conversion of internal
    WebSphere MQ data is performed on the client or the queue
    manager.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users who are attempting to understand where the conversion of
    internal WebSphere MQ data is performed for client connections.
    
    Platforms affected:
     All Distributed (iSeries, all Unix and Windows) +Java
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    The following line in the client documentation is ambiguous:
    If the connected queue manager requires the data to be
    converted, this is done by the client support code.
    
    This is found in the following location:
    Clients -> Application Programming -> Using the message queue
    interface (MQI) -> Choosing client or server coded character
    set identifier (CCSID)
    

Problem conclusion

  • The v6 and v7 client documentation is updated:
    If the connected queue manager requires the data to be
    converted, this is done by the queue manager.
    
    The v7 client documentation has the additional sentence added
    to indicate the difference between the C and Java client:
    The Java client in v7, however, is capable of doing the
    conversion if the queue manager is unable to do so.
    Please see Connection differences section in the v7 Using Java
    documentation.
    
    The Connection differences section in the v7 Using Java
    documentation has an additional bullet added:
    If connecting to a queue manager that requires character data
    to be converted, the v7 Java client is now capable of doing the
    conversion if queue manager is unable to do so. The client JVM
    must support the conversion between the CCSID of the client and
    that of the queue manager.
