APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • A QuickFix action is required for the broken subflows
    references.
    When some of the subflows are converted to .subflow and the
    referencing flows are not present on the workspace, then it
    causes the referencing flows to be marked with errors when
    they are imported to the workspace as they can not find the
    corresponding subflows with .msgflow extensions. QuickFix will
    fix the flow references when the .subflow file with the
    corresponding name is found on the workspace project path.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of IBM Integration Toolkit migrating subflows from
    .msgflow to .subflow incrementally when not all of the
    referencing or referenced subflows that need to be updated exist
    on the workspace.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    When users convert subflows from .msgflow to .subflow files
    and do not have all the projects with all the referencing and
    referenced subflows on the workspace, then only the flows
    existing on the workspace are updated. When you incrementally
    import other projects that may contain referencing flows on
    the workspace, the referencing flows are marked with errors as
    they are not able to locate the subflows with the .msgflow
    extension.
    
    There are a number of resource name changes between WebSphere
    Message Broker and IBM Integration Bus Version 9.0. For

Problem conclusion

  • The product now allows a QuickFix for each error marker
    related to the missing subflows. When the QuickFix is invoked,
    if the subflow with .subflow extension and matching name and
    namespace is found on the workspace, then the referencing flow
    is automatically updated with the new subflow type.
