  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When the setTriggerData() method is invoked on the WebSphere MQ
    classes for Java class:
    
    com.ibm.mq.MQQueue
    
    Two conversion routines are run on the argument string resulting
    in double conversion when the queue manager is using a non-ASCII
    character set.
    
    This causes the Trigger Data property to be updated on the queue
    with unexpected (incorrect) data.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects users of the WebSphere MQ V7.0 classes for
    Java who are using the base Java classes to set the Trigger
    Data property on a com.ibm.mq.MQQueue object when the queue
    manager they are using is running in an non-ASCII compatible
    character set.
    
    Platforms affected:
    All Distributed (iSeries, all Unix and Windows) +Java +Java zOS
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    When a user called the setTriggerData method, the argument
    string was being converted into the Queue Manager's CCSID twice.
    This resulted in an incorrect data conversion when the Queue
    Manager is running in a non-ASCII character set.
    
    For a queue manager running in an ASCII compatible CCSID, this
    double conversion had no effect on the user data, which meant
    that the end result had the expected value.
    

Problem conclusion

  • One of the conversion routines has been removed to ensure that
    trigger data being set on a queue is only converted once.
