APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • On IBMi, WMQ Java/JMS uses what is set in the java system
    property os400.job.file.encoding to check for a valid code
    page to use for running java/jms programs.  When this value is
    set to the ccsid alias value cp037 and it is not found,
    WMQ Java/JMS defaults to code page IBM-500 for IBMi.
    WMQ Java/JMS should, instead, use the standard default
    ccsid for IBMi 037, code page IBM-037.
    This issue occurs with java client and bindings programs that
    run on IBMi.

Problem summary

  • PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects users of:
    
    - The WebSphere MQ V7 classes for Java.
    - The WebSphere MQ V7 classes for JMS.
    - The WebSphere MQ V7 Resource Adapter.
    - The WebSphere MQ V7 OSGi bundles.
    - The WebSphere Application Server V6.1 WebSphere MQ messaging
    provider who have configured the WebSphere variable
    MQ_INSTALL_ROOT to point to a WebSphere MQ V7 installation.
    
    on IBM i which try to use code page 037.
    
    Platforms affected:
    iSeries
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    The WebSphere MQ v7 classes for Java/JMS need to have CCSID
    specific mappings of CharacterSets which were not present in
    the product compiling JDK.  The codepage aliases for these
    CCSIDs (cp037) were not present in the mapping
    list on the IBMi platform.
    
    The result of this is that the WebSphere MQ V7 classes for
    Java/JMS on IBMi did not recognise the codepage aliases for
    CCSID 037, even when the application using them was
    running in a more recent JVM which does include support for
    the codepage.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WebSphere MQ V7 classes for Java/JMS for IBMi now support
    the CCSID 037 as supported codepage with the
    appropriate codepage aliases.
