Local fix

  • Local Fix <br/>None. <br/>
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition Version 7.0.4
    transferring to or from datasets.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    z/OS
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    In some circumstances a timing issue can arise when transferring
    data to or from datasets which will lead to variable being
    erroneously assigned a value of 0. This later causes the
    ArithmeticException when the code attempts to divide by this
    value.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been altered to prevent the timing issue from
    causing an ArithmeticException.
