APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
The SpooledFile class answerMessage method returns
RC 24 error "Can not find writer for requested spool file'. This
is occurring when a PQT4103 message is issued for a spoolfile
(Device is out of paper).
It should be possible to send a 'C' reply to that message but
there is always a RC24 returned.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE64994 :
-----------------------------
If the writer job for an IPDS printer configured with AFP(*YES)
is between spooled files, but the previous spooled file sent to
the Print Driver Job (PDJ) has not finished printing and the PDJ
is in Message Waiting status (for example, out of paper) the
WRKWTR command and the QSPRWTRI API were not returning the
identity of spooled file that waiting on the message.  The
answerMessage method may depend on this spooled file ID.

If the PDJ job is waiting on a message, WRKWTR and QSPRWTRI will
now return the identity of the spooled file, if there is a
spooled file.  There may still be cases where the PDJ detects a
printer error and there is no spooled file; if this happens the
spooled file fields will still be blank.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE64994 :

None.
