Error description

  • Problem :
    When running the command
    
    
    AdminTask.createWMQConnectionFactory('cell6(cells/cell6|ce
    ll.xml#Cell_1)', '[-type CF -name test -jndiName test
    -msgRetention YES
    ]')
    WASX7015E: Exception running command:
    "AdminTask.createWMQConnectionFactory('cell6(cells/cell6|c
    ell.xml#Cell_1)', '[-type CF -name test -jndiName test
    -msgRetention YES
    ]')"; exception information:
     com.ibm.ws.messaging.admin.command.AdminCommandException:
    com.ibm.ws.messaging.admin.command.AdminCommandException:
    CWMSR0047E:
    The value "YES" is not valid for the msgRetention attribute.
    Valid
    values are "TRUE" and "FALSE".
    
    
    
    But if using TRUE and FALSE also and get error :
    
    AdminTask.createWMQConnectionFactory('cell6
    (cells/cell6|cell.xml#Cell_1)', '[-type CF -name test
    -jndiNametest -msgRetention TRUE ]')"
    ; exception information:
    com.ibm.websphere.management.exception.InvalidAttributeValExcept
    ion:ADMG
    0013E: The attribute value for attribute path
    factories,msgRetention is
    not valid.
    
    It seems There is a bug in the WMQ create connection factory and
    modify connection factory code that mean they
    validate for TRUE and FALSE when instead they should validate
    for YES or NO. As the customer has noticed, specifying
    TRUE/FALSE results in a failure at a later point as
    MQ returns an error.
