APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edidtion Information Center for
    fteCreateBridgeAgent states that -bfe will format files stored
    on the protocol file server to the charater set identified with
    the -bfe parameter, when this was used to create the Bridge
    Agent. Upon completion of a transfer to the server, the file
    remained in its origianl format unconverted.
    

Local fix

  • NA
    

Problem summary

  • When transferring a file to a protocol bridge agent, the agent
    would not convert the file to the target character encoding as
    specified by the protocolServerFileEncoding property in the
    agent.properties configuration file for a text mode transfer.
    The initial value of this property is set according to the value
    of the -bfe parameter of the fteCreateBridgeAgent command.
    
    Instead, the file would be written to the protocol bridge
    agent in its original character encoding. No conversion would
    take place. Conversion will only occur if the destination
    encoding is explicitly set on the transfer.
    
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of the protocol bridge making transfers in text mode
    
    PLATFORMS AFFECTED:
    All
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been altered to ensure that the protocol bridge
    agent will convert the character encoding of a file for a text
    mode transfer by default to the value of its
    protocolServerFileEncoding property.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 7.0.4.2.
