APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If a MQCONNX program specifies MQCNO_RECONNECT_AS_DEF  and the
    mqclient.ini has DefRecon=YES, reconnect does not function as
    expected.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users using a native client application with the MQCONNX
    connection option MQCNO_RECONNECT_AS_DEF who have set
    DEFRECON=YES in mqclient.ini file.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    A logic omission in the MQ client routines meant that the
    MQCNO_RECONNECT_AS_DEF option was not correctly replaced with
    the default value from the mqclient.ini file before the MQCONNX
    call was passed to the queue manager.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The MQ client logic has been updated to set the correct value
    from the mqclient.ini file in the MQCONNX options when
    MQCNO_RECONNECT_AS_DEF is set by the application.
