Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects all users of the WebSphere MQ v7.0.4.4 File
    Transfer Edition (FTE) embedded agent that uses the IBM MQ v8
    Java client.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    The WebSphere MQ v7.0.4.4 File Transfer Edition (FTE) embedded
    agent, upon startup, attempted to ascertain the exact product
    versions of the IBM MQ Java client code in use for communication
    with an IBM MQ queue manager. This information should have then
    been logged to the embedded agent's log file. However, an issue
    existed in the IBM MQ classes for Java such that the embedded
    agent was unable to query this information correctly. This
    resulted in the embedded agent failing to start, which in turned
    caused IBM Integration Bus v9.0.0.3 to throw the following
    exception:
    
    'java.lang.NullPointerException'; thrown from class name:
    'com.ibm.broker.nodes.filenodes.ManagedFileInputNode', method
    name:
    'getNextLocalFile', file: 'ManagedFileInputNode.java', line:
    '122'
    

Problem conclusion

  • The IBM MQ classes for Java have been updated such that the
    WebSphere MQ v7.0.4.4 File Transfer Edition embedded agent can
    successfully query the level of IBM MQ Java client code that is
    available in the IBM Integration Bus execution group environment
    in which it is running.
    
    A code change has also been made to the WebSphere MQ File
    Transfer Edition Embedded Agent such that, if the IBM MQ Java
    client code cannot be queried from the environment, the Embedded
    Agent can still start.  In this scenario, the WebSphere MQ File
    Transfer Edition Embedded Agent will report blank version
    information for the IBM MQ Java client.
