Implement the Pack for SWIFT on WebSphere Message Broker

To implement the Pack for SWIFT version 4.3.1 on WebSphere Message Broker with WebSphere Transformation Extender version, refer to the following steps:

  1. Copy the SWIFT jars (jval431.jar and jvcwrap.jar) to the WebSphere Message Broker Java shared libraries classes directory. Locate this directory by checking the value of the MQFT_JAVA_LIB_PATH variable. For example:

    C:\Program Files\IBM\MOSI\>echo %MQFT_JAVA_LIB_PATH%
    C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\WebSphere MQ\java\jre\lib

  2. Introduce the DTX_SWIFT_CONFIG_DIR environment variable into the WebSphere Message Broker run time environment to find the jvalnnn.prop file in SWIFT 431.
    For example:


  3. Use the following WebSphere Message Broker command to add the JVM Option to the WebSphere Message Broker Execution Group:

    mqsichangeproperties <BrokerName> -e <ExecutionGroupName> -o ComIbmJVMManager -n jvmSystemProperty -v"-DDTX_SWIFT_CONFIG_DIR=<absolute_directory>"

  4. Use the following WebSphere Message Broker command to check the jvmSystemProperty value of the JVM Option that is defined for the Message Broker Execution Group.

    mqsireportproperties <BrokerName> -e <ExecutionGroupName> -o ComIbmJVMManager -n jvmSystemProperty "


SWIFT MT messages with new block 3 fields

If you are using the new MX Validation Framework in the Pack for SWIFT with one of the WebSphere Transformation Extender base product versions listed below, you should contact support and request "APAR WTX00040970".
