Error description

  • You are running WMQFTE on z/OS. The following message is seen,
    BFGUT0003E: An internal error has occurred. An unexpected
    condition has occurred that has resulted in the abnormal end
    of this process.
    Failure data was captured in file
    "ABEND.FTE.XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.log".
    .
    The Abend log indicates an unhandled IllegalArgumentException.
    .
    Method:     uncaughtException
    Probe:      ABEND_001
    .
    Cause: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: String
    'xxxxxxxx.xxxx.xxxx.xxx.SUMMARY.BACKUP.G%%%%V%%' longer than 44
    bytes
    .
    The concern is not so much the fact the GDG template exceeded
    the 44 character limitation but that the Agent started task
    must be cancelled and restarted to recover.
    All other users of this Agent are affected.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • When a dataset with a base name longer than 35 characters was
    used as a source file, it caused an IllegalArgumentException
    because the absolute name exceeded the 44 byte limit for z/OS.
    The agent did not handle the exception gracefully, which caused
    the agent to hang.
    
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All transferring datasets with long names
    
    PLATFORMS AFFECTED:
    z/OS
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been updated to ensure that the exception is
    handled properly, and an error message is logged. The agent will
    no longer ABEND if it encounters this problem at runtime.
    

Temporary fix
