    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Using WOLA to send a message from IMS   *
    *                      to                                      *
    *                      WebSphere causes an abend with U4087    *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When sending a message from IMS to Websphere via WOLA a
    request/response prefix style is required to be supplied. When
    the
    supplied style differs from the actual supplied data an abend
    occurs. The mismatch causes a misinterpretation of data, causing
    the abend condition.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code has been added to correctly check the supplied message
    length in order to verify valid values. In scenarios where a
    mismatch occurs between provided data and the designated
    request/response prefix style an error, instead of an abend,
    will occur.
