APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In WebSphere MQ 7.0 for Windows, the activity trace event for a
    message related to MQGET does not contain the text of the
    Message Data
    

Local fix

  • This defect was a result of the use by the MQ samples of GMO
    version 1. A temporary workaround would be to change the
    application to use GMO version 3.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users who have enabled application activity tracing for
    applications using a GMO version less than version 3
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    The activity trace code assumed the use of GMO version 3, which
    contains a returned length field. When earlier versions of the
    GMO were used by applications, the Returned length field wasn't
    valid and resulted in an invalid data size record field.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The application activity tracing code has been rewritten to use
    a field that is valid for all GMO versions.
