Error description

  • The manifest.mf file for com.ibm.mq.commonservices.jar has an
    incorrect version entry in it after applying a fixpack - for
    example (taken from a WMQ 7.1.0.5 installation on iSeries) :
    
    ================================================================
    Manifest-Version: 1.0
    Ant-Version: Apache Ant 1.7.1
    Created-By: 1.5 (IBM Corporation)
    Sealed: false
    Specification-Title: WebSphere MQ Common Services
    Specification-Version: ${version.number}
    Specification-Vendor: IBM Corporation
    Implementation-Title: WebSphere MQ Common Service
    Implementation-Version: ${version.number} - ${build.level}
    Implementation-Vendor: IBM Corporation
    ================================================================
    
    i.e. the Implementation-Version hasn't been updated. It would
    appear that this happens because com.ibm.mq.commonservices.jar
    is not shipped with fixpacks on IBM i
    

Local fix

  • Install 7.1.0.2 GA code which includes the fix for the Manifest
    file, then apply WMQ fixpacks accordingly.
