Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * GH Tester and Rational Integration Tester users who are      *

    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * Tests that read messages from a MQ Queue using a 'Subscribe' *
    * test action can wait too long for a message, appearing to    *
    * 'hang' for a longer time than the timeout that was           *
    * configured on the test action. Following this extended       *
    * delay, if a message does then arrive on the queue it can     *
    * sometimes fail to be processed by the test action. The       *
    * problem is intermittent, but particularly common when the    *
    * queue in question has not been used earlier in the test.     *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * GH Tester users should upgrade to GH Tester 5.4.0.21 or      *
