Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server V7.0, V8.0 and V8.5                  *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: ABEND0C4/ABENDS0C4 in module BBOATRUE   *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When using the WebSphere Optimized Local Adapter (WOLA) to
    communicate with CICS Transaction Server, WebSphere installs a
    task related user exit (TRUE) in CICS.  The TRUE is called at
    transaction end for any transactions using WOLA.
    If a transaction takes an ABEND, the TRUE will attempt to clean
    up any allocated resources pertaining to WOLA during the task
    end call.  In some cases, the TRUE will attempt to clean up
    a transient data queue which does not exist.  This results in
    an ABEND0C4/ABENDS0C4.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code was added to correctly detect the presence of the WOLA
    transient data queue, and to clean it up only when it is
    present.
    
    **** NOTE ****
    
    The WOLA module BBOATRUE must be refreshed in the CICS DFHRPL
    after applying this APAR.  Please refer to the WOLA installation
    section of the WebSphere Application Server for z/OS
    Information
    Center for the procedure used to copy WOLA modules into a
    dataset which is included in DFHRPL.
    
    APAR PM74658 is currently targeted for inclusion in WebSphere
    Application Server Fix Packs 7.0.0.27, 8.0.0.6, and 8.5.0.2.
