APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The WebSphere MQ Managed File Transfer (MFT) component uses
    platform native code to run the Process Controller, which in
    turn is used to start the Java MFT agents and loggers.
    
    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.
    
    There is a requirement to stop shipping the ICU4C library with
    MFT.  As such, this APAR removes the dependency on the ICU4C
    library when determining the language in which messages should
    be written to the Process Controller log.
