APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If a test uses messaging based transports ( MQ transport, JMS,
    etc )
    and it is created only with a SendRequest (ReceiveReply is
    deleted),
    messages sent by SendRequest disappear after running the test.
    
    An attempt is made to access the Reply queue which might fail in
    this case.
    
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE
    
    1. Create a test using MQ Transport.
    2. Add "SendRequest" in the test which will send messages to a
    target queue.
    3. Add stub which will subscribe to the target queue and use
    Send Request to send to the reply queue.
    4. Execute the test.
    
    EXPECTED RESULTS:
    
    After completing the test execution, all the data should remain
    in the reply queue.
    
    ACTUAL RESULTS:
    
    Data disappears in the reply queue.
    

Local fix

  • Use "Publish" instead of "SendRequest"

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * If the user created a test with a Send Request/Receive Reply *
    * pair, then deleted the Receive Reply message, a listener was *
    * still created for the reply. As a result, any replies sent   *
    * by the system under test were intercepted by the listener    *
    * and invisibly removed from the queue.                        *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *

Problem conclusion

  • A fix for this issue was provided in version 8.7.0.1 of Rational
    Integration Tester. If the Receive Reply message does not exist,
    no listener is created for it and replies remain on the queue.
