Error description

  • Using MQFTE exit function, to output Japanese character in
    agent's log file under
    ${MQFTE_ROOT}/<FTE_name>/agents/<agent_name>/logs
    .
    However, the Japanese characters are not displayed correctly.
    .
    To recreate the scenario, send the output to the log file by
    adding System.out.println method in exit:
     "System.out.println("xxxxxx");"
                          ^^^^^^ <= DBCS (Japanese) character.
    .
    In the log file, the output character is garbaged.
    Customer used editbin to check hex code.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • SUMMARY:
    Double byte characters destined for the File Transfer Edition
    event log were treated as single byte chracters. The resultant
    output in the event log showed twice the number of characters
    expected with the original naming lost
    

Problem conclusion

  • Program corrected to treat log messages as characters instead of
    bytes.
    

Temporary fix

  • IFIX available
