Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects all users of the WebSphere MQ File Transfer
    Edition 7.0.4 Database Logger to persist, to a database,
    information published as XML log messages to a topic concerning
    either:
    
      - A Managed Call operation
    
    or
    
      - A Managed Transfer operation that specifies a program to run
    either before a transfer starts, or after it finishes.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    AIX, HP-UX Itanium, Linux on Power, Linux on S390, Linux on x86,
    Linux on x86-64, Linux on zSeries, HP-UX PA-RISC, MultiPlatform,
    z/OS, Windows, Solaris x86-64, Solaris SPARC
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    When retrieving a CALL REQUEST with certain REQUEST ID from the
    database, a null value will be assigned if the CALL REQUEST with
    that particular REQUEST ID is not found. If an attempt is made
    to retrieve CALL ID from this CALL REQUEST(which is null), it
    will result in NullPointerException.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition Database Logger code has
    been updated such that an attempt to retrieve CALL ID from the
    CALL REQUEST is made only if the CALL REQUEST is not null when
    CALL REQUEST detail is read from database.
