Error description

  • MQRFH2 service used in a BP to insert MQRFH2 header into MQ
    Message. According to the WebSphere Message Broker
    documentation,
    the NameValueLength expresses the Length of NameValueData and it
    should be a multiple of four. However, the generated
    NameValueLength is 001A (=26). It is not a multiple of four. On
    the other hand, the length of NameValueData is 28 bytes. So it
    causes a problem when the other application parses RFH2 header.
