    Platforms affected:
    Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    Encoding value is always set as BIG ENDIAN irrespective of what
    value is set on the Destination.If XMSC.WMQ_ENCODING property is
    set to MQC.MQENC_DECIMAL_NORMAL,XMS.NET is considering it as BIG
    ENDIAN which is incorrect.
    

Problem conclusion

  • If XMSC.WMQ_ENCODING property is set to
    MQC.MQENC_DECIMAL_NORMAL,XMS.NET is considering it as BIG ENDIAN
    rather it should have been LITTLE ENDIAN
