Error description

  • A WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition V7.0.4 agent fails after
    logging an error like this:
    
     BFGUT0003E: An internal error has occurred. An unexpected
     condition has occurred that has resulted in the abnormal
     end of this process. Failure data was captured in file
     "ABEND.FTE.xxxxxxx.xxxxxx.log".
    
    
     The ffdc file named in the error message shows these symptoms:
    
     Class: com.ibm.wmqfte.thread.FTEThread
     Method: uncaughtException
     Probe: ABEND_001

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition 7.0.4 and
    WebSphere MQ Managed File Transfer 7.5 that are executing a text
    mode transfer.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    When a 'text' mode transfer is executed, the data within the
    message or file is converted into the code page specified on the
    transfer request. To do this the WMQ File Transfer Edition (FTE)
    or WMQ Managed File Transfer (MFT) agent will use the ICU 4J
    libraries. An internal error within the ICU 4J libraries can
    occur which will cause the agent to ABEND. The ABEND will
    contain the following exception stack:
