Error description

  • When using the Java API to put a message to a queue on an IBM
    i queue manager by using the MQDestination.put() method, the
    following exception occurs:
    
    com.ibm.mq.MQException: MQJE001: Completion Code '2', Reason
    '2142'.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects users of the v7 WebSphere MQ classes for Java
    client on IBM i.
    
    Platforms affected:
    iSeries
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    When a WMQ Message is put to a queue manager and that WMQ
    message contains 1 or more properties then an RFH2 header is
    created with the message.
    
    The RFH2 header is created using a CCSID of 1208 regardless of
    the platform but when the WebSphere MQ classes for Java
    attempted
    to send the WMQ Message it set the CCSID of the MQMD to be the
    default for the iSeries platform (37). This was incorrect as the
    MQMD CCSID is used to describe the next header which is the RFH2
    header. The exception is thrown because the IBM i Queue Manager
    was expecting the RFH2 header to be in CCSID 37 as defined in
    the MQMD.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This APAR solves the problem by making sure that the CCSID of
    the MQMD is correctly set to 1208 when an RFH2 header is
    present. The CCSID in the RFH2 header is then set to be the
    CCSID of the message payload or any following header.
