WITHDRAWN: MA0K: WebSphere MQ - Completion Code and Reason Code analysis programs

Downloadable files


This SupportPac provides source code and libraries containing functions for analysis of WebSphere MQ Completion Codes and Reason Codes.

Download Description

This SupportPac has been moved to withdrawn and will be archived in March 2018.

This SupportPac provides source code and libraries (ANSI C and Visual Basic) containing functions for the analysis of WebSphere MQ Completion Codes and Reason Codes (up to and including those relating to WebSphere MQ V7.0). Sample programs are also provided, including a program which displays the entire explanatory text from the WebSphere MQ Messages manual. The explanatory text database is also provided for the Palm OS PDA.

Possible Uses
The SupportPac contents may be incorporated into applications which use the MQI, subject to the International License Agreement. The analysis functions provide an easy means for application diagnostics to include the standard symbolic names for Completion Code and Reason Codes as well as the usually numeric values (for example, MQGET error, CompCode=2(MQCC_FAILED), ReasonCode=2033(MQRC_NO_MSG_AVAILABLE). The sample programs (particularly mqmch) are also useful for looking up symbolic names and explanatory text when the WebSphere MQ Messages manual is not accessible, on Unix, Windows or a Palm OS PDA. This enables operations and application support teams to gain access to the codes without reference to WebSphere MQ documentation or technical support.
