1.0 General description
===============
This fix resolves the APARs and defects listed in the "Problems Fixed"
section below.


2.0 Problems fixed
============
The following problems are addressed by this fix.

2.1 APARs
-------------

APAR: IJ05369
Abstract: JAPANESE APPLICATION SUPPORT FILE IS INCORRECT AND FAILS TO
INSTALL
Additional information:
Generating an agent with the Agent Builder Japanese Language
Pack installed, results in a k<pc>_resources.jar, where <pc> is
the product code of the agent, with no class files.

Application support installation may complete without a visible
error. However, after installing the TEMS and TEPS support for
the agent results in one of the following symptoms:

1. The Tivoli Enterprise Portal displays the internal keys of
the attribute group names.
2. The Java Web Start portal fails to start up.
3. Attribute Group and Attribute items of the agent do not
match in Situation Editor.

Reviewing the TraceKQZ.log in the Agent Builder workspace
.metadata\tivoli\KQZ\logs directory, you can see that an error
occurred when compiling the application support because a
unicode character is split/truncated, when the line is continued
to the next line.

In the K<pc>Bundle.java generated by the builder, which is
located in the agent package in

you can see where the "Performance Object Status" strings are
broken into pieces and split in the middle of a UNICODE
character (see above ^^)
