APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • After applying APAR IC84032, if a transfer happens while the
    WebSphere MQ Explorer is closed, the information logged in the
    XML section of the transfer log is not correct. Audit messages
    are always marked as the result of the transfer and the order is
    incorrect.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects all users of the WebSphere MQ Explorer File
    Transfer Edition version 7.0.4 plug-in.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    After applying APAR IC84032 to ensure transfers that occur
    when the WebSphere MQ Explorer is closed are displayed in the
    transfer log page of the WebSphere MQ Explorer File Transfer
    Edition plug-in, the XML messages published by the agent for a
    transfer appear in reverse order. This resulted in the audit
    messages being displayed in the following order:
    - Completed
    - Progress
    - Started
    
    This was due to the way in which the WebSphere MQ Explorer
    File Transfer Edition plug-in internally stored the audit
    messages consumed from the SYSTEM.FTE/Log topic before
    processing them to update the transfer log view. Additionally,
    each XML message began with the string "# SUCCESSFUL" as this is
    the state that results from a "completed" audit message. This
    was not updated when the earlier messages are subsequently
    processed as "Successful" is the final, completion state of
    the transfer and should be shown as such in the transfer log.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition coordination queue
    manager provides messages to consumers in first in first out
    fashion (i.e., oldest first). The WebSphere MQ Explorer File
    Transfer Edition plug-in has therefore been updated to ensure
    the XML audit messages consumed from the SYSTEM.FTE/Log topic
    are processed in the order in which they are received.
