Error description

  • The problem happens during MQGET (with MQGMO_CONVERT) when it
    is doing the message character conversion and it finds an RFH2
    header with DBCS characters and it is trying to swap bytes of
    the BOM (byte-order-mark) character according to the requested
    encoding.

    ****************************************************************
    The 0C4-00000004 abend is caused by the routine that swaps bytes
    when converting from one type of integer encoding to another
    (normal <-> reversed) during MQGET with GMO_CONVERT of a message
    that has a RFH2 with properties encoded using DBCS.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The byte swap routine has been corrected.
