Error description

  • The WebSphere MQ 7.5 MFT component uses platform native code to
    run the Process Controller, which in turn start the Java MFT
    agents.
    
    This Process Controller incorporates the International
    Components for Unicode For C (ICU4C) library to assist with the
    globalization of the messages which are output by the Process
    Controller.
    
    The version of ICU4C which the Process Controller currently
    utilises is 48.1.  Newer versions of the ICU4C library have been
    released, and the WebSphere MQ 7.5 MFT component should be
    updated to obtain any defect fixes which are available in the
    more recent versions.
