Error description

  • The WebSphere MQ V7.5 classes for Java OSGi bundle:
    
    com.ibm.mq.osgi.java_<version_number>.jar
    
    is loaded into an OSGi environment. An application running
    inside the same OSGi environment attempts to use the WebSphere
    MQ Programmable Command Format (PCF) interface to interact with
    WebSphere MQ. When the application tries to use one of the PCF
    classes, a ClassNotFoundException is thrown.
    

Local fix

  • Add the PCF jar com.ibm.mq.pcf.jar to the Bundle-Classpath
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects users of the WebSphere MQ V7.5 classes for
    Java OSGi bundle who have applications that make use of the
    WebSphere MQ Programmable Command Format (PCF) interface.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    The WebSphere MQ V7.5 classes for Java OSGi bundle:
    
    com.ibm.mq.osgi.java_<version_number>.jar
    
    contains the file com.ibm.mq.pcf.jar, which holds the classes
    that implement the WebSphere MQ Programmable Command Format
    (PCF) interface. Applications running inside an OSGi
    environment that wish to make use of the PCF interface need to
    ensure that the OSGi bundle loads this bundle.
    
    However, the Bundle-ClassPath statement in the MANIFEST.MF file
    for the WebSphere MQ classes for Java V7.5 OSGi bundle did not
    contain an entry for com.ibm.mq.pcf.jar. This meant that OSGi
    environments did not include com.ibm.mq.pcf.jar on the
    CLASSPATH.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Bundle-Classpath statement in the MANIFEST.MF file for the
    WebSphere MQ V7.5 classes for Java OSGi bundle has been updated
    to include an entry for com.ibm.mq.pcf.jar.
