Error description

  • Customer is using WMQ 7.0.1 at OS 6.1. with
    - QP0100CET4 - Central European Daylight Saving Time
    - QUTCOFFSET - +02:00
    
    When using WRKMQMMSG to view the messages, the output does not
    show the correct local time. The time difference between GMT and
    local time (in this sample Central European Daylight
    Saving Time) should be 2 hours, but it is 3 hours instead.
    

Local fix

  • no workaround
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    WMQ for IBM i users of WRKMQMMSG command
    
    Platforms affected:
    iSeries
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    Starting with IBM i 6.1, there were changes made to the mktime()
    API which the WRKMQMMSG command is utilizing to calculate Local
    Time. Those changes were not being accounted for resulting in
    incorrect calculations of Local Time on the WRKMQMMSG panel.
    
    The IBM i changes are documented here:
    http://www-912.ibm.com/s_dir/slkbase.NSF/DocNumber/509266491
    

Problem conclusion

  • WMQ code has been modified to account for the changes in the
    mktime() API so that Local Time can be calculated correctly,
    regardless of IBM i release.
