  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In the WebSphere Application Server administrative console you
    can list the queue points for a messaging engine under "Service
    Integration: Buses > Bus_Name > Messaging Engines > ME_Name >
    Queue Points".  If you sort the list on "Queue Depth", the
    console displays the queue points in the wrong order.  Rather
    than performing a numeric sort (e.g. 0, 7, 33, 500, 1500) it
    performs a string sort (e.g. 0, 1500, 33, 500, 7).

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Sorting by queue depth produces the     *
    *                      incorrect result.                       *

    ****************************************************************
    The problem was that the sort treated the depth as a String
    and was therefore ordered alphabetically.    As a result 2
    > 10, so the order was incorrect.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The fix is to sort the list by treating depth as a numeric
    value, resulting in the expected sort.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.17.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
