APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Inquiring on character attributes of a z/OS queue manager using
    the inquire method from a Java client version 7.0.1.0 or later
    returns unconverted values for the attributes. This is a change
    in behaviour compared to previous versions.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects all users of the WebSphere MQ v7 classes for
    Java version 7.0.1.0 or later trying to inquire character
    attributes of z/OS queue managers.
    
    Platforms affected:
     All Distributed (iSeries, all Unix and Windows) +Java
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    Prior to version 7.0.1.0, any character attribute inquiries
    were returned converted to the local codepage. Changes in
    the 7.0.1.0 code meant that this was no longer the case for
    clients inquiring properties of z/OS queue managers.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A new version of the inquire method has been added. Where the
    already existing method now returns a byte array with
    unconverted character attributes, the new method returns a
    character array with the attributes converted - this matches
    the original behaviour.
    
    The new method signature is:
    
    public void inquire(int[] selectors, int[] intAttrs, char[]
    charAttrs) throws MQException
    
    The original inquire method - which takes a byte array rather
    than a character array - will continue to return unconverted
    data.
