APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Deploying a BAR file for an application with message flows
    migrated from prior versions of IIB and built with
    mqsipackagebar reports BIP1359E. The application then fails to
    start.
    
    BIP1359E Unable to resolve 'TerminalLink' connection in 'Nodes'
    'Nodes' between '<node>' and '<terminal link>'.
    

Local fix

  • In any message flow's ".msgflow" file which was created in a
    prior version of IIB and has an "id" attribute on the
    "nodes.translation" element, simply remove it.
    
    For example:
    
         <nodes xmi:type="ComIbmTryCatch.msgnode:FCMComposite_1"
    xmi:id="FCMComposite_1_10" location="247,183">
           <translation xmi:type="utility:ConstantString"
    xmi:id="ConstantString_7" string="Try / Catch"/>
    
    
    Would need to be edited to remove the part:
          xmi:id="ConstantString_7"
    
    Hence the message flow xml would become:-
    
         <nodes xmi:type="ComIbmTryCatch.msgnode:FCMComposite_1"
    xmi:id="FCMComposite_1_10" location="247,183">
           <translation xmi:type="utility:ConstantString"
    string="Try / Catch"/>
    
    
    Note that there maybe multiple edits of this form needed.
    
    Hence a simple workaround is to build the message flows into a
    BAR using "mqsicreatebar" and then extract the .msgflow files
    and override the Toolkit workspace .msgflow files with those.
    This works because "mqsicreatebar" will have removed these.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of IBM App Connect Enterprise V11.0 having migrated
    flows in BARs created using mqsipackagebar
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    Deploying a BAR file for an application with message flows
    migrated from prior versions of IIB and built with
    mqsipackagebar reports errors of the form:
    
      BIP1359E Unable to resolve 'TerminalLink' connection in
    'Nodes' 'Nodes' between '<node>' and '<terminal link>'.
    
    The flows and application then fail to start.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The ACE runtime message flow deployment is corrected to ignore
    the nodes.translation.id attribute in migrated message flows.
