  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If you have a test that uses IBM WebSphere MQ request-reply with
    temporary destinations, connections grow for each message.
    Connections are freed up when RIT is closed.
    
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    
    1. Create an MQ transport.
    2. Create a test with a Send Request-Receive Reply action.
    3. Configure the Send Request and click the Dynamic Reply
    check-box.
    4. Run the test.
    5. View the Queue Manager Connection Count in IBM WebSphere MQ
    Explorer
    
    EXPECTED RESULTS:
    
    The number of connections remains static.
    
    ACTUAL RESULTS:
    
    The connection number increases by 1 every time the test is run.
    Connections are freed when RIT is closed down.
    
    WORKAROUNDS:
    
    Restart RIT to free connections.
    OR
    Use fixed reply queues.

    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * If a test in Rational Integration Tester uses an MQ          *
    * transport that is configured to use a temporary reply        *
    * destination then the connection to MQ is not closed when the *
    * test ends. As a result, the number of connections to MQ      *
    * increases with each test that was run.  The connections will *
    * not be dropped until Rational Integration Tester is exited.  *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
