Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects all users of the runmqras command who use
    WebSphere MQ v7.0.1.12 on Windows platforms.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    In WebSphere MQ v7.0.1.12, a change was made to the runmqras
    facility (a tool that automates the task of collecting
    diagnostic information) to print progress information to the
    console while the command was running. However, this change
    included some incorrect command parsing logic while determining
    the progress information to display that resulted in an uncaught
    java.util.regex.PatternSyntaxException that caused the command
    to terminate and not to generate the expected output.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The runmqras facility has been updated to correct the command
    parsing error which caused the
    java.util.regex.PatternSyntaxException to be thrown.
