APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In a scenario where a WebSphere MQ Explorer is closed, any MQ
    FTE
    transfers that take place are not shown in the transfer log when
    the WebSphere MQ Explorer is re-opened. Once it is opened, any
    new transfers are shown in the transfer log. In the preferences,
    for Websphere MQ File Transfer Edition, the transfer log
    subscriber type is DURABLE. This should mean that the
    subscriptions should be retained for the next time the Explorer
    is opened and the transfers should then be visible in the
    plug-in.
    

Local fix

  • None <br/>
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition Version MQ
    Explorer plugin
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    If the MQ Explorer was closed when files are being
    transferred, some transfers would not appear in the transfer
    log. This was due to a race condition during the startup
    procedure of the MQ Explorer FTE plugin. Additionally, if
    transfer audit messages arrived out of order for transfers which
    occurred whilst the MQ Explorer was not running, they would
    remain in 'In Progress' state, despite having completed.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been altered to resolve the race condition and
    ensure that out of order messages from the SYSTEM.FTE topic
    are correctly catered for.
