Error description

  • If the MQ MFT Tools component is installed on a system   without
    the MQ MFT Agent component then fte* commands  will report an
    FFDC with the following exception:
    java.lang.ClassNotFoundException:
    on:   com.ibm.wmqfte.exitroutine.api.IOExitPath

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    The issue affects users of the WebSphere MQ V8.0 Managed File
    Transfer component
    who install the MQMFT Tools component without the MQMFT Agent
    component.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    In MQ MFT 8.0 a dependency was placed on the MQMFT I/O Exit
    support for the fte commands. This was necessary in order to
    support security credential information stored in z/OS data
    sets; to be used for authentication purposes when connecting to
    a queue manager.
    
    The MQMFT I/O Exit support is included with the MQMFT Agent
    install component as jar file:
        mqft/lib/com.ibm.wmqfte.exitroutine.api.jar
    However this jar file is not included with the MQMFT Tools
    install component.
    Hence without installing the MQMFT Agent component, invoking any
    of the fte commands will  report an FFDC and an internal error.
    The command otherwise finished successfully, assuming that the
    security credentials were not required to communicate with the
    queue manager.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The fix is to provide the missing MFT I/O Exit support jar with
    the MQMFT Base install component, which is a prerequisite for
    all other MQMFT install components.
    The new MFT I/O Exit support jar is provided in the MQMFT Base
    component as file:
         mqft/lib/com.ibm.wmqfte.exitroutine.api.base.jar
    and the MFT I/O Exit support jar within the MQMFT Agent  install
    component will be updated to have all classes removed, so that
    they are not duplicated.
    Note that the new jar is a different name to the MFT I/O Exit
    support jar provided in the MQMFT Agent install component
    because files within install components must be uniquely named
    across all install components.
