Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users use 5725M50 MFT on IBM i V7R4
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    IBM iSeries
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    For MQ 9.1 and 9.0 MFT uses JAVA 7 as default jvm, while on IBM
    i V7R4 it doesn't support JAVA 7, the default JAVA version is 8.
    So it failed to run MFT programs.
    

Problem conclusion

  • MFT code is corrected to choose JAVA 8 as default jvm.
