Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects users of the WebSphere MQ v7 resource adapter
    with the Glassfish application server
    
    Platforms affected:
    All Distributed (iSeries, all Unix and Windows) +Java
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    When deploying the WebSphere MQ resource adapter to the
    Glassfish application server, it is unzipped into a single
    directory which caused internal configuration files to be lost.
    
    Due to the missing files, when starting up an internal WebSphere
    MQ class was not initialized correctly, resulting in a
    java.lang.NullPointerException.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WebSphere MQ internal services has been altered to allow it
    to initialize without the configuration files.
