APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition added new functionality in
    7.0.4.3, to perform 'inline' transfers. This is enabled by
    setting the maxInlineFileSize property. On WMQ FTE source agents
    running on Windows, setting this property did not cause 'inline'
    transfers to take place.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects users of WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition
    7.0.4.3 and WebSphere MQ Managed File Transfer 7.5 who are using
    the 'inline' transfer feature and running the source agent on
    the Microsoft Windows platform.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    An incorrect syntax validation routine on the transfer item path
    caused the source agent to incorrectly treat a Windows file path
    (in the form :) as a Connect:Direct node path. The inline
    function is not supported
    for Connect:Direct nodes and so the source agent on Windows did
    not perform the inline transfer, even though the size of the
    data was under the maxInlineFileSize value and so should have
    been an inline transfer.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This APAR resolves the issue ensuring that an inline transfer
    can be executed when the transfer is using a Windows-style
    file path.
