Error description

  • WMQ Explorer plug-in is not displaying properly. After
    installing plug-in for WebSphere MQ (WMQ) File Transfer Edition
    (FTE) for v7.0.4.1, some of the columns disappear . The Managed
    File Transfer - Current transfer Progress only shows Source
    agent. No other columns.
    Updating the file
    com.ibm.wmqfte.explorer\filedialog_settings.xml
    in the users MQ Explorer temp directory to add "Destination" and
    restarting WMQ Explorer worked. But on exit, it did not
    save the changes.
    Moving the order of the columns did fix the problem.
    Testing also showed that if this file was deleted, all
    default columns showed in the WMQ Explorer for Current transfer
    progress. However, the last column was deleted when exiting and
    saving the XML file. If the problem occurs when viewing 7
    columns, then the seventh time the xml file is loaded, it will
    be empty.
    

Local fix

  • Disable the plug-in or change the order of the columns
    and save.
    

Problem summary

  • When using the IBM WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition plugin for
    IBM WebSphere MQ Explorer, the column for the "Current Transfer
    Progress" may disappear. This will happen if the view is not
    painted more than once. For example, if the WMQ Explorer is
    started and then immediately exited. If any columns have been
    moved, the problem will not occur.
    
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of the WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition plugin for
    WebSphere MQ Explorer
    
    PLATFORMS AFFECTED:
    All
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been altered by ensuring that column information
    will always be saved. In addition this APAR will detect the
    problem if it exists prior to installation, and repair the
    columns by restoring them to their default number and position.

    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 7.0.4.2.
