    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    WMQ Activation Specifications contain an advanced property
    called "arbitrary properties".  Certain properties specified in
    the arbitrary properties value are in part derived from the
    values of other advanced properties.  When updating the
    advanced properties the WMQCommandHelper may recalculate the
    arbitrary properties value but incorrectly assumes that the
    current value is the default.  Typically this results in the
    erasure of any additional properties that have been added to
    the default.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WMQCommandHelper was modified to process the current value
    of the arbitrary properties advanced property when
    recalulating its new value.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.5.5.13 and 9.0.0.6.  Please refer to the
