Error description

  • Listener Ports using V5 Messaging Resources can not start
    until the recovery retries limit is reached.  Please note that
    the V5 Messaging Resource was provided for the purpose of
    migration to the version 7 JMS Messaging Provider or WebSphere
    Platform Messaging also known as the Service Integration Bus
    (SIB).
    
    The following message occurs repeatedly in the SystemOut.log:
    WMSG0058I:Listener Port XXX will attempt to restart in 60
    seconds

    ****************************************************************
    A listener port fails to start for a period of time (max
    retries - 1) as it was checking the state of the messaging
    engine incorrectly, and reporting that the messaging enginge
    was not started.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The fix for this APAR causes the V5 Messaging provider to
    attempt to connect to the messaging engine regardless of
    whether it believes the messaging engine is available for V5
    messaging or not.
    This removes the delay starting the listener port. Exception
    messages might be logged to the JVM logs of the application
    server if the server hosting application is started before the
    server hosting the messaging engine. This is expected when
    starting a listener port before the messaging provider is
    available.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.13.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
