Error description

  • BFGCL0171E: The XML schema validator for transfer definition

Local fix

Problem summary

  • IBM WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition 7.0.4.1 Explorer Plugin
    allows the user to edit a Monitor that has already been created.
    If that monitor contains a transferset that contains an XML
    reserved characters (such as '&') then the monitor editor can be
    displayed in WMQ Explorer.  An error box is displayed in WMQ
    Explorer with the words "Illegal Reptition {"
    
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users editing monitors
    
    PLATFORMS AFFECTED:
    All
    

Problem conclusion

  • The transferset XML was in corrected escaped before it was
    parsed in order to populate the Monitor Editor. The APAR solves
    the problem by allowing Monitors containing transferset data
    with reserved XML characters to be edited in the WebSphere MQ
    Explorer File Transfer Plugin.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 7.0.4.2.
