PTF Memo for: IBM WebSphere MQ for Windows Version 5.3 and
IBM WebSphere MQ Express for Windows Version 5.3
Service Level 5.3.0.14 (Fix Pack CSD14)
------------------------------------------------------


This memo.ptf file contains information you need for updating either
IBM WebSphere MQ for Windows V5.3 (server and/or client), as well as
a summary of the contents of the latest fix pack and any earlier fix
packs.

This memo.ptf file corresponds to the thirteenth fix pack, which is
defined as PTF U200266 and is numbered 14. This fix pack will
bring your WebSphere MQ for Windows Version 5.3 installation up to
service level 5.3.0.14 (PTF U200266 - fix pack CSD14).

This fix pack can be used to update the WebSphere MQ for Windows
V5.3 server and the IBM WebSphere MQ Express for Windows V5.3 server.

This fix pack can be used to update the WebSphere MQ for Windows
V5.3 client if you installed the client in one of the following
ways:

a) From the WebSphere MQ for Windows V5.3 server product
CD-ROM at the same time as you installed the server.
b) From the WebSphere MQ for Windows V5.3 server product
CD-ROM without installing the server.
c) From the WebSphere MQ V5.3 client CD-ROM
d) By downloading the SupportPac MACV from the web and
installing it.

The memo.ptf file for this fix pack is divided into the following
sections:

o Installation and maintenance information

o Documentation changes

o Special information

o Service and technical support

o Fix pack history

INSTALLATION AND MAINTENANCE INFORMATION
----------------------------------------

Java™ SDK is included in this fix pack
-------------------------------------

Fix pack 14 includes a copy of the Java SDK version 1.4.2 SR9.
The fix pack package is now a zip file. When this is unzipped you will
find the SDK executable ibm-java2-sdk-142.exe and the exe file you
can use to install the WebSphere MQ fix pack.
The SDK includes the changes for the new Daylight Savings
clock changes which will be made in the USA and New Zealand in 2007.
You can use this as a replacement for the optional SDK shipped with the
product.

For more information on upgrading SDKs/JREs, please refer to
"Upgrading SDKs/JREs provided with WMQ Fixpacks" at
http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=171&uid=swg21253427.

Applying Maintenance
--------------------

Maintenance updates can be downloaded from the World Wide Web.

** Precaution **************************************************
* *
* Do not have queue managers running while you are applying *
* or removing maintenance updates to IBM WebSphere MQ for *
* Windows. *
* *
* Do not have channel listeners running while you are *
* applying or removing maintenance updates to IBM WebSphere *
* for Windows. *
* *
* You must also stop the IBM WebSphere MQ Service (via the *
* 'Services' window) before applying or removing maintenance. *
* *
****************************************************************

The instructions for applying maintenance to WebSphere MQ for Windows
can be found in chapter 8 of the manual "WebSphere MQ for Windows
Quick Beginnings" (GC34-6073-00), but must be amended by any changes
documented in the following section of this memo.ptf file.

This fix pack requires approximately 15MB of disk space for
installation. The installation process requires another 15MB of disk
space to save the previous level. This allows a fix pack to be
removed, and the previous level to be automatically restored.

Options to the Fixpack install process
--------------------------------------

AMQICSDN has a number of command line parameters which can modify its
behavior under specific circumstances, such as silent installs. If
you are using the self-extracting web version, you can either run the
downloaded .exe file to unpack first, or you can use the following
syntax directly with the downloaded .exe file:

e.g. WebSphereMQCSD12EnUs.exe [-s] -a <options>

The -s option tells the unpacking to run silently, and
the -a option passes the subsequent parameter to amqicsdn.exe.
Note the unpacked version will not get deleted in this case.

The currently supported options to amqicsdn are:

Syntax
AMQICSDN.exe <parms>
or WebSphereMQCSD12EnUs.exe [-s] -a <parms>

Where <parms> is any number of

MQPLOG - Specifies the log to be used during install/uninstall
e.g. MQPLOG="C:\TEMP\CSDINSTALL.LOG"

MQPBACKUPPATH - Specifies the directory to backup into during
install
eg. MQPBACKUPPATH="C:\MQM\CSD12"

MQPREBOOT - Specifies what to do when a reboot is required
e.g. MQPREBOOT=1
Supported values:
<not supplied> - Prompt for what to do
0 - Suppress the reboot
1 - Reboot without asking

MQPSILENT - Specifies whether to do a silent install or not
e.g. MQPSILENT=1
Supported values:
<not supplied>, 0 - Interactive install
1 - Silent install

MQPINUSEOK - Specifies whether to continue even if a file is found
to be currently locked by another application. Note
should this occur, then this will require a reboot to
complete fixpack installation.
e.g. MQPINUSEOK=1
Supported values:
<not supplied>, 0 - Fail if files are found to be in use
1 - Deferred install upon reboot

MQPUNINST - Specifies the removal of the last fixpack
e.g. MQPUNINST=1
Supported values:
<not supplied>, 0 - Do an install
1 - Do an uninstall of the latest fixpack


Installing on Microsoft Windows XP
----------------------------------

To install the original release of WebSphere MQ for Windows V5.3
on Microsoft Windows XP, you should enter the following command
on the command line:

x:\mqparms.exe AMQ_XP_INSTALL_PENDING_CSD=1

After completing this installation, you must then install fix pack
CSD01.

This is not necessary if you have the refreshed versions 5.3.0.1
or 5.3.0.2 of WebSphere MQ for Windows V5.3, which already include
fix pack CSD01. You should follow the published installation
instructions to install this version of WebSphere MQ for Windows
V5.3 on Microsoft Windows XP.


NOTE TO USERS OF SUPPORTPAC MA0C
--------------------------------
From Fix Pack 8 (CSD08), SupportPac MA0C: WebSphere MQ -
Publish/Subscribe, is now incorporated into WebSphere MQ. If this
SupportPac is already installed it must be removed before installing
this fix pack.

Uninstall by selecting:

Start->Control Panel->Add or Remove Programs->IBM MQSeries Publish/Subscribe

DOCUMENTATION CHANGES
---------------------

o SC34-6062 - WebSphere MQ Application Programming Reference manual

Section: Return Codes "MQRC_MAX_CONNS_LIMIT_REACHED (2025)
Replace with

MQRC_MAX_CONNS_LIMIT_REACHED (2025)
Explanation: The MQCONN or MQCONNX call was rejected because
the maximum number of concurrent connections has been exceeded.
If Java language is in use, this could be because the limit to
the number of concurrent connections defined by the connection
manager has been exceeded.

On z/OS, connection limits are applicable only to TSO and batch
requests.The limits are determined by the customer using the
following parameters of the CSQ6SYSP macro:
For TSO: IDFORE
For batch: IDBACK

For more information, see the WebSphere MQ for z/OS System Setup
Guide.

On Compaq OpenVMS Alpha, OS/2, OS/400, Compaq NonStop Kernel,
UNIX systems, and Windows, this reason code can also occur on
the MQOPEN call:
Completion Code: MQCC_FAILED
Programmer Response: Increase the size of the appropriate
install parameter value, reduce the
number of concurrent connections,
or, if the Java connection manager
is responsible, increase the limit.

========================================================

Section: Administering JMS objects
SubSection: Properties

Add to Table 11 property names and valid
========================================

Property Shortform Valid values
----------------- ------------ ------------
LOCALADDRESS LA See Below

Valid Values
------------
null

String in the format: [ip-addr][(low-port[,high-port])]
examples being:
9.20.4.98 Channel binds to this address locally
9.20.4.98(1000) Channel binds to this address and port 1000 locally
9.20.4.98(1000,2000) Channel binds to this address and uses a
port in the range 1000 to 2000 locally
(1000) Channel binds to port 1000 locally
(1000,2000) Channel binds to port in range 1000 to 2000 locally

Note that it is also possible to provide a hostname in place of the
dotted IP address, resulting in the same functionality.

For DIRECT connections, this parameter only takes effect when
multicast is used. For DIRECT connections, this parameter
cannot have a port specifier, or the connection will be
rejected, so of the above examples, only 'null' or '9.20.4.98'
would be valid.


Property Shortform Valid values
----------------- ------------ ------------
MSGSELECTION MSEL CLIENT - Message selection is done by the Client
BROKER - Message selection is done by the Broker


Property Shortform Valid values
----------------- ------------ ------------
SPARSESUBS SSUBS no - Subscriptions receive frequent matching messages.
yes - Subscriptions receive infrequent matching
messages. (This setting requires that the
subscription queue can be opened for
browse.)

DIRECTHTTP - HTTP tunneling for DIRECT connections



Add note to Table 11 property names and valid
=============================================
In certain environments, specifying the same queue name for
both the brokerDurSubQueue and brokerCCDurSubQueue attributes
on an MQTopic object can result in a JMSException being thrown.
It is advised that separate queues are used for these two
attributes.

Section: Sample error conditions
--------------------------------
Add to end of section, new paragraph

This section provides examples of error conditions that may
arise during the use of an object.

On Windows platforms

When looking up JNDI Administered objects from a JMS Client,
1. If using the WebSphere JNDI Provider
(com.ibm.websphere.naming.WsnInitiailContextFactory), use
forward slashes to access administered objects defined in
sub contexts, for example, jms/MyQueueName. Note if backward
slash is used InvalidNameException is thrown.

2. If using the Sun JNDI provider
(com.sun.jndi.fscontext.RefFSContextFactory) use backward
slashes to access to access administered objects defined in
sub contexts, for example, ctx1\\fred. Note if forward
slash is used NameNotFoundException is thrown.



Chapter 7 Writing MQSeries base Java programs
=============================================
Section: Connection differences
-------------------------------
Add to end of section, new SubSection: Specifying a range of ports

A range of local ports to be selected when making a connection to an
MQ queue manager. This can be used for Java client connections
through a firewall, where the firewall only accepts connections
originating from a defined port(s) or range of ports.

This can be set in the following places depending upon the scope of
definition required.
1. MQEnvironment.properties
o Using the key/value pair MQC.LOCAL_ADDRESS_PROPERTY
2. MQEnvironment.localAddressSetting
3. MQJMS Administration Object
o Use the Connection Factory property LOCALADDRESS

This property causes the MQInternalCommunications class to bind to a
port and IP satisfying the property, giving similar functionality as
the LOCLADDR property available for channels. If an error occurs as
a result of the local port restrictions then the user receives a
MQRC_Q_MGR_NOT_AVAILABLE message, containing a message stating
"Socket connection attempt refused due to LOCAL_ADDRESS_PROPERTY
restrictions".

Note that this error may be due to the fact that the ports are in
use or may be because the IP address or ports have been specified
with incorrect values - for example a negative port number or a host
name that does not exist.

With JMS applications a range of ports should be used to allow for
connections required internally and those explicitly used by the
application, the number of ports required depends on the
applications and the facilities it uses. Typically this will be
the number of sessions the application uses plus 3 or 4 additional
ports. If you encounter errors where connections cannot be made
the number of ports in the range should be increased.

Note that connection pooling has some bearing on how quickly a
port can be reused. JMS uses connection pooling by default,
hence it may be some minutes before a free port is reused. In
the meanwhile connection errors may occur.


Section: Connection Pooling
---------------------------
Insert following new paragraph after the third paragraph:
MQSimpleConnectionManager can be made to limit the number of
connections which it handles at any one time. This is useful where
there are conflicting demands for connections within one JVM. In
order to prevent one demand for connections from using too much
resource, it can be forced to draw its connections from a
size-limited connection pool so that the performance of the
connections used by the other demands for connections are not
downgraded. By default, getMaxConnections() method returns zero,
indicating that no limit to the number of connections supported by
MQSimpleConnectionManager is enforced. A limit only comes into play
when setMaxConnections() method is used to change this to a non-zero
value.

If a limit has been set to the number of connections being handled
by an instance of MQSimpleConnectionManager, there is a possibility
that a request for a connection will cause an MQException, with a
reason code of MQRC_MAX_CONNS_LIMIT_REACHED, to be thrown.

Section: Supplying a different connection pool
----------------------------------------------
Replace the text about application MQApp4
The following application demonstrates this:
import com.ibm.mq.*;
public class MQApp4
{
public static void main(String []args)
{
MQSimpleConnectionManager myConnMan = new MQSimpleConnectionManager();
myConnMan.setActive(MQSimpleConnectionManager.MODE_AUTO);
myConnMan.setTimeout(3600000);
myConnMan.setMaxConnections(75);
myConnMan.setMaxUnusedConnections(50);
MQEnvironment.setDefaultConnectionManager(myConnMan);
MQApp3.main(args);
}
}

The bold lines set up an MQSimpleConnectionManager. This is set to:
o destroy connections that have not been used for an hour
o limit the number of connections managed by myConnMan to 75
o limit the number of unused connections held in the pool to 50
o MODE_AUTO (actually the default). This means that the pool is
active only if it is the default connection manager, and there
is at least one token in the set of MQPoolTokens held by
MQEnvironment.

The new MQSimpleConnectionManager

Section: JTA/JDBC coordination using WebSphere MQ base Java
-----------------------------------------------------------
Add an extra paragraph to the Usage SubSection:

In order to use this functionality you must include the following
option in your application:
MQEnvironment.properties.put( MQC.THREAD_AFFINITY, new Boolean( true ) );

Oracle 9i support: To use the JTA/JDBC support with Oracle 9i on
Windows, you should use the jdbcora9.dll switch file supplied in
fix pack 6 (CSD06). jdbcora.dll is for Oracle 8 systems only


Chapter 9 The WebSphere MQ base classes and interfaces
======================================================

Section:MQEnvironment
---------------------
Add to table

Key Value
----- -------
MQC.LOCAL_ADDRESS_PROPERTY String (overrides MQEnvironment.localAddressSetting)

Add to Variables
localAddressSetting*
public static String localAddressSetting

The following value is for storing the value defined for the local address
property, used to support firewall requirements from base Java and JMS. The
format of the string is [ip-addr][(low-port[,high-port])] examples being:
9.20.4.98 Channel binds to this address locally
9.20.4.98(1000) Channel binds to this address and port 1000 locally
9.20.4.98(1000,2000) Channel binds to this address and
uses a port in the range 1000 to 2000 locally
(1000) Channel binds to port 1000 locally
(1000,2000) Channel binds to port in range 1000 to 2000 locally

Note that it is also possible to provide a hostname in place
of the dotted IP address, resulting in the same
functionality.

The value is initialized from a system property called
"com.ibm.mq.localAddress" when starting the JVM.

The default value is null

is then set as the default connection manager.


Section MQException
-------------------
SubSection: Methods
add:
two new methods to either suppress or output messages to
system.err.

to exclude a code from the exception logging routine,
i.e... System.err :

MQException.logExclude(new Integer( RC_value_to_suppress ));

to include a code later on in the application assuming it has
already been excluded :

MQException.logInclude(new Integer( RC_value_to_include ));

For example:

MQException.logExclude(new Integer( 2033 ));

Section MQQueueManager
----------------------
SubSection: Constructor
Constructor: public MQQueueManager(String queueManagerName, ConnectionManager cxManager)
Add to note:
If the value of cxManager is null then the default ConnectionManager
is used.

Section: MQSimpleConnectionManager
----------------------------------
Replace with:

An MQSimpleConnectionManager provides basic connection pooling
functionality. You can use an MQSimpleConnectionManager either as
the default Connection Manager, or as a parameter to an
MQQueueManager constructor. When an MQQueueManager is constructed,
the most-recently-used connection in the pool is used.

Connections are destroyed (by a separate thread) when they are
unused for a specified period, when there are more than a specified
number of unused connections in the pool, or when the maximum
number of connections has been reached and room is made for new
connections. You can specify the time out period, the maximum
number of managed connections and the maximum number of unused
connections.

Variables
-----------
MODE_ACTIVE
public static final int MODE_ACTIVE . See "setActive" on page xxx.

MODE_AUTO
public static final int MODE_AUTO . See "setActive" on page xxx.

MODE_INACTIVE
public static final int MODE_INACTIVE . See "setActive" on page xxx.

Constructors
------------
MQSimpleConnectionManager
public MQSimpleConnectionManager()
Constructs an MQSimpleConnectionManager.

Methods
-------
getActive
public int getActive()
Gets the mode of the connection pool.
Returns
The current active mode of the connection pool, with one of the following
values (see "setActive" on page xxx):
MODE_ACTIVE
MODE_AUTO
MODE_INACTIVE

getHighThreshold (deprecated)
public int getHighThreshold()
This should not be used in new applications. It is synonymous
with getMaxUnusedConnections and returns the maximum number of
unused connections in the pool.

getMaxConnections
public int getMaxConnections()
Returns the maximum number of connections managed by the connection manager.

getMaxUnusedConnections
public int getMaxUnusedConnections()
Returns the maximum number of unused connections in the pool.

getTimeout
public long getTimeout()
Returns the Timeout value.

setActive
public void setActive(int mode)
Sets the active mode of the connection pool.

Parameters
mode The required active mode of the connection pool. Valid values are:

MODE_ACTIVE
The connection pool is always active. When
MQQueueManager.disconnect() is called, the underlying
connection is pooled, and potentially reused the next
time that an MQQueueManager object is constructed.
Connections are destroyed by a separate thread if they
are unused for longer than the Timeout period, if the
size of the pool exceeds the value set by
setMaxUnusedConnections(), or if room needs to be made
for a new connection.

MODE_AUTO
The connection pool is active while the connection
manager is the default connection manager and there is at
least one token in the set of MQPoolTokens held by
MQEnvironment. This is the default mode.

MODE_INACTIVE
The connection pool is always inactive. The pool of
connections to WebSphere MQ is cleared when this mode is
entered. The connection that underlies any active
MQQueueManager object is destroyed when
MQ QueueManager.disconnect() is called,

setHighThreshold (deprecated)
public void setHighThreshold(int maxUnusedConnections)
This should not be used in new applications. It is synonymous
with setMaxUnusedConnections and sets the maximum number of
unused connections in the pool.

setMaxConnections
public void setMaxConnections(int maxConnections)
Sets the maximum number connections to be managed. In order to
prevent this number being exceeded, the oldest unused
connection in the pool may be destroyed or a request for a new
connection may be refused and an MQException thrown with reason
code MQRC_MAX_CONNS_LIMIT_REACHED.

Parameters
maxConnections The maximum number of connections in the pool.

setMaxUnusedConnections
public void setMaxUnusedConnections(int maxUnusedConnections)
Sets the maximum number of unused connections in the pool. In
order to prevent this number being exceeded, the oldest unused
connection in the pool is destroyed.

Parameters
maxUnusedConnections The maximum number of unused connections in the pool.

setTimeout
public void setTimeout(long timeout)
Sets the Timeout value, where connections that remain unused for this
length of time are destroyed by a separate thread.

Parameters
timeout The value of the timeout in milliseconds."

Sub Section: Choosing a broker
====================================================================

Change third bullet to:
WebSphere MQ Event Broker and WebSphere Business Integration
Message Broker V5 provide a broker that can be connected to in
two different ways.


Section: Setting up the broker to run the WebSphere MQ JMS
Sub Section: Connecting to your Broker directly
====================================================================

Change first sentence to:
This is only possible when you use the broker provided in
WebSphere MQ Event Broker or WebSphere Business Integration
Message Broker V5.


Section: Using Topics
SubSection: Topic Names
=======================

Add to Note:

Unicode characters are supported.

Section: Subscriber options
SubSection: Using message selectors
===================================

Add this text at the end of the existing section.

You can control whether the JMS Client or the Broker performs
message filtering by setting the MessageSelection property on the
Topic ConnectionFactory. In most cases when the Broker is capable of
performing message selection it is preferable to make use of this,
as it reduces the number of messages sent to your Client. However if
the Broker is very heavily loaded then it may be preferable to move
this function back onto the Client.


Section: Solving publish/subscribe problems
-------------------------------------------
SubSection: Topic Names
Add New section at the end, as follows:
"Other Considerations"

When connecting to WebSphere MQ Event Broker V2.1 on a Microsoft
Windows system, with a large number of JMS clients using TCP/IP sockets
(that is with a JMSAdmin property type of TRANSPORT(DIRECT)),
note the following.

If a large number of connections happen almost simultaneously, a
java.net.BindException Address in use exception might be thrown in
response to a TopicConnection call. You can try to avoid this by
catching the exception and retrying, or by pacing the connections.

=====================================

Section: MQConnectionFactory
============================
Add methods

getLocalAddress*
public String getLocalAddress()

Get method for local address attribute
Returns
String containing the local address in the format
[ip-addr][(low-port[,high-port])]
examples being
9.20.4.98 Channel binds to this address locally
9.20.4.98(1000) Channel binds to this address and port 1000 locally
9.20.4.98(1000,2000) Channel binds to this address and uses a port in the
range 1000 to 2000 locally
(1000) Channel binds to port 1000 locally
(1000,2000) Channel binds to port in range 1000 to 2000 locally

Note a hostname maybe provided in place of the dotted IP address.

setLocalAddress*
public void setLocalAddress(java.lang.String x) throws JMSException

Set method for local address attribute

Parameters:
x - the local address to be used in the format described above
Throws:
JMSException if local address format incorrect.

A range of ports should be used to allow for connections
required internally and those explicitly used by the
application, the number of ports required depends on the
applications and the facilities it uses.
Typically this will be the number of sessions the
application uses plus 3 or 4 additional ports. If you
encounter errors where connections can not be made the
number of ports in the range should be increased.

Note that connection pooling has some bearing on how
quickly a port can be reused. In JMS connection
pooling is switched on by default and it may be some
minutes before a port if free to be reused and
connection errors may occur.

For DIRECT connections, this attribute determines which
of the local network interfaces will be used for
multicast connections. When setting this parameter for
a DIRECT connection, you should not specify a port as
this is not configurable for multicast and will cause a
failure at connect time.


Section: QueueConnectionFactory
===============================
Add methods

getTempQPrefix*
public String getTempQPrefix()

Get method for temporary queue prefix attribute
Returns
String containing the queue prefix attribute

setTempQPrefix*
public void setTempQPrefix(java.lang.String tempQPrefix) throws JMSException

Set method for temporary queue prefix attribute

Parameters:
tempQPrefix - the prefix to be used when creating temporary/dynamic queues
Throws:
JMSException - prefix is null, empty, greater than 33 characters in length or
equal to '*'


Section: TopicConnectionFactory
===============================
Add methods

getMessageSelection * $
public int getMessageSelection()

Get method for message selection attribute.

Returns:
The value for the message selection attribute.

GetSparseSubscriptions *
public boolean getSparseSubscriptions()

Get method for sparseSubscriptions attribute.

Returns:
The value for the sparsesubscription attribute.

setMessageSelection * $

is done by the Client or the Broker.
The constants representing the valid values are:
JMSC.MQJMS_MSEL_CLIENT
JMSC.MQJMS_MSEL_BROKER

SetSparseSubscriptions *
public void setSparseSubscriptions(boolean x)

Set method for the sparseSubscriptions attribute. A sparse
subscription is defined as one which receives infrequent
matching messages. The default value of this property is
false. A value of true may be required if an application
using sparse subscriptions fails to receive messages because
of log overflow. Setting sparseSubscriptions to 'true'
requires the subscription queue to be openable for browse.

Appendix D. Connecting to other products
=========================================

Section: Setting up a publish/subscribe broker
==============================================

Add new sub Section
Direct connect to WebSphere Business Integration Broker V5
----------------------------------------------------------
For this, set a message flow within an execution group on
WebSphere Business Integration Broker V5. This message flow
reads messages from the TCP/IP socket on which the broker is
listening.

The basic message flow consists of a Real-timeOptimizedFlow set
to listen on the port configured for direct connections. By
default, this port is 1506.


Add new Section: WebSphere Business Integration Broker V5
Add SubSection:
=========================================================

JMS can now connect to the WebSphere Business Integration
Broker V5. The range of functions expands on those available
with WebSphere MQ Event Broker with the following additions for
direct connections (TCP/IP) to the broker:

1) Authentication using a public key certificate
2) Multicast
3) HTTP Tunnelling and Connect via Proxy

Details on these functions can be found in the WebSphere
Business Integration Broker V5 Information Center. The
following describes how the JMS client configuration parameters
can be configured.

1. Support for SSL authentication
------------------------------

JMS client connection to the broker provides both server
authentication and mutual (or client) authentication.

This is NOT a full SSL implementation and is not the same as
connecting to WebSphere MQ using the SSLCIPHERSUITE option -
SSL is not used to encrypt or perform integrity checks on
the data when connecting to WebSphere Business Integration
broker.

The difference between the behavior of WebSphere MQ SSL and
this SSL authentication option is that the former uses SSL
for the lifetime of the connection, thereby providing
link-level encryption as well as authentication; the latter
only uses SSL in order to accomplish authentication and
establish a session key; messages may then be protected on a
per-topic basis. If encryption is required it needs to be
set up using the QoP options on the broker. The certificates
used for this are the same as are required as for full SSL.

This is configured either:
i) Programmatically by getDirectAuth/setDirectAuth methods
on MQConnectionFactory.
ii) Administratively using JMSAdmin to set the property
DIRECTAUTH.

Notes:
1. If the TRANSPORT property is set to the value DIRECT,
then a new DIRECTAUTH property is examined to determine
whether SSL authentication should be used.

2. The SSLPEERNAME and SSLCRL properties can be used to
perform the same checks as for MQ CLIENT SSL connections
when DIRECTAUTH is set i.e.setting DIRECTAUTH enables the
SSLPEERNAME and SSLCRL options in the same way as
SSLCIPHERSUITE does for MQ SSL

3. The JSSE KeyStore and TrustStore configuration will
determine the client's certificate and acceptable server
certificates respectively, in the same way as for MQ
CLIENT connections.


2. Multicast
---------

JMS client multicast connection to the broker can be
configured either:
i) Programmatically by getMulticast and setMulticast
methods on MQTopicConnectionFactory or MQTopic.
ii) Administratively using JMSAdmin to set the property
MULTICAST.

Note: The TRANSPORT property must be set to DIRECT before
the MULTICAST property will have any effect.


3. HTTP Tunnelling and Connect-via-Proxy
-------------------------------------

JMS client can now connect via HTTP tunneling and
connect-via-proxy.

HTTP Tunnelling
This is suitable for use in applets, where, due to sandbox
security, an attempt to connect explicitly to the HTTP proxy
server would be rejected. HTTP tunneling exploits the web
support built into browsers and connects through the proxy
as if it were connecting to a web site. This is configured:

i) Programmatically using a new value of TransportType
property on MQConnectionFactory of
JMSC.MQJMS_TP_DIRECT_HTTP.
ii) Administratively using JMSAdmin to set the property
TRANSPORT to DIRECTHTTP.

Note that HTTP tunnelling cannot be used in combination with
SSL Authentication.

Connect-via-Proxy
This is suitable for use in non-applets where there is no
"sandbox" security restriction. It connects directly to the
proxy and uses the Internet protocol defined in RFC 2817 to
request that the proxy forward the connection to the broker.
This option does not work in applets, where the security
manager will normally reject the explicit connection to the
proxy. This is configured:

i) Programmatically using the get/set methods on
MQTopicConnectionFactory.
ii) Administratively using JMSAdmin to set the properties
PROXYHOSTNAME and PROXYPORT.

Connection type
The type of connection formed depends on the value of
ProxyHostName and that of TransportType:
- If ProxyHostName is set to the empty string, then
connections are made directly to the hostname and port
specified in the HostName and Port properties.
- If ProxyHostName is set to a non-empty value, and
TransportType is set to DIRECT, then connect-via-proxy
behavior is used with the proxy host name and port taken
from the ProxyHostName and ProxyPort properties;
- If TransportType is set to any value other than DIRECT,
then connections are made directly to the hostname and port
specified in the HostName and Port properties.

SPECIAL INFORMATION
-------------------

A) Fix Pack CSD14 (PTF U200266)
----------------------------

This fixpack includes a change which may improve the performance of a multithreaded C++ application. Prior to this change, MQPUT operations may serialize - ie if 2 threads issue MQPUT together then one may wait for the other to complete - This is most visible when running in client bindings as the MQPUT flows involve network I/O. This change can potentially mean that the WMQ Server experiences a higher workload than it would previously have done because more multiple concurrent calls can now be in effect.

In most cases this is the desired behavior, as it improves the throughput but the previous behavior can be restored by setting an environment variable 'AMQ_CPP_LOCK_ON_PUT' to any value.

-------------------------------------------------

This SupportPac is now incorporated into WebSphere MQ. See the
install section above for instructions on how to install this Fix
Pack if you have installed the MA0C SupportPac.

o JMS Performance changes
-----------------------

0. Introduction.
================
WebSphere MQ V5.3 CSD8 for distributed platforms introduces an
additional set of tuning options that can be used to enable improved
JMS publish/subscribe performance in selected persistent messaging
scenarios.

Significant performance improvements are possible in suitable JMS
publish subscribe environments which make heavy use of persistent
messages and exhibit a low degree of concurrent activity.

1. JMS configuration
====================
Four new properties are added to the ConnectionFactory and
TopicConnectionFactory administrable objects.
These are settable through the JMSAdmin tool.
Getter and setter methods are provided on the MQSession object to
allow the setting of these properties to be more finely tuned,
however it is recommended that these attributes are managed
through the administrable objects where possible.

The four new properties are:

ReceiveIsolation
----------------
ReceiveIsolation is used to determine when messages can be seen
and dealt with by MessageConsumers.

ReceiveIsolation is an integer attribute and valid values are:
JMSC.MQJMS_RCVISOL_COMMITTED
The MessageConsumer will only see committed messages.
This is the current default behavior.
JMSC.MQJMS_RCVISOL_UNCOMMITTED
The MessageConsumer is able to receive uncommitted messages.
Although the MessageConsumer may be given visibility to an
uncommitted message it will not be allowed to commit such a
message unless the producer also commits. This option should
only be used if the effect of the message is not made visible
outside the MQ recovery domain before the commit completes.
Note that setting this option ALLOWS the queue manager to
deliver an inflight message to a consumer, but that it does
not REQUIRE the queue manager to make inflight messages
available to a consumer.

JMSAdmin configuration data for this attribute:
JMSAdmin longname: RECEIVEISOLATION
JMSAdmin shortname: RCVISOL
JMSAdmin values: COMMITTED / UNCOMMITTED / DEFAULT



ProcessDuration
---------------
ProcessDuration allows the consumer to indicate how long it will
take in dealing with any received message before acknowledging it.
ProcessDuration is an integer attribute and valid values are:

JMSC.MQJMS_PROCESSING_UNKNOWN
It is not known how long the consumer will hold the message
before acknowledging the message. This is the current
default behavior.

JMSC.MQJMS_PROCESSING_SHORT
The consumer will acknowledge the message after a 'short'
interval. Setting MQJMS_PROCESSING_SHORT allows the queue
manager to deliver the message synchronously to an active
consumer. In conjunction with MQJMS_RCVISOL_UNCOMMITTED this
option can enable synchronous delivery in a transactional
environment. If the queue manager delivers the message
synchronously and the consumer does NOT acknowledge the
message after a 'short' interval then the flow of
publications through this queue manager may be interrupted.

JMSAdmin configuration data for this attribute:
JMSAdmin longname: PROCESSDURATION
JMSAdmin shortname: PROCDUR
JMSAdmin values: UNKNOWN / SHORT / DEFAULT


OutcomeNotification
-------------------
OutcomeNotification will determine whether the MessageConsumer
needs to be informed of the outcome of a Message acknowledgement
(or a Session.commit() in a transacted Session).


OutcomeNotification is a boolean attribute and valid values are:
YES
When a message is acknowledged the MessageConsumer will be
informed whether the Message has successfully committed or
been rolled-back. This is the current default behavior.

NO
When a message is acknowledged the MessageConsumer will not be
informed of whether the Message has successfully committed or
been rolled-back (though the result will still be one or the
other, as before). Applications for which the correct
response to a rolled back exception is to ignore the exception
can typically use this option. For example a server
application which receives a message, sends a reply, and
commits can typically safely use this option. In the event of
the transaction rolling back then the original request message
will be reinstated with the BackoutCount incremented and
presented to the application on its next receive to be
reprocessed.


JMSAdmin configuration data for this attribute:
JMSAdmin longname: OUTCOMENOTIFICATION
JMSAdmin shortname: NOTIFY
JMSAdmin values: YES / NO


OptimisticPublication
---------------------
OptimisticPublication allows the queue manager to defer some error
checking when a transacted MessageProducer/TopicPublisher produces
a message. OptimisticPublication is a boolean attribute and valid
values are:

NO
The queue manager will validate the publication request before
control is returned to the message producer. This is the
current default behavior.

YES
This allows the queue manager to overlap processing the
message in the interval between producing the message and
committing the message. In the case where the message can be
delivered synchronously to one or more consumers (as a result
of MQJMS_RCVISOL_UNCOMMITTED and MQJMS_PROCESSING_SHORT) then
if one or more of those consumers rolls back its transaction
then the producers transaction will also roll back.

JMSAdmin configuration data for this attribute:
JMSAdmin longname: OPTIMISTICPUBLICATION
JMSAdmin shortname: OPTPUB
JMSAdmin values: NO / YES


2. Broker configuration
=======================

A. WebSphere MQ publish subscribe broker
-------------------------------------

JmsStreamPrefix='string'

This is an attribute of the WebSphere MQ publish subscribe broker
and is specified in the "Broker:" configuration stanza. All
streams whose names begin with the JmsStreamPrefix are restricted
to JMS semantics. In particular they do not support retained
messages and relative message ordering is not guaranteed across
publishers. The WebSphere MQ publish subscribe broker optimizes
processing of publications which are restricted to JMS semantics.

There is no default value for this attribute.

For example, JmsStreamPrefix=JMS could be specified to indicate
that the streams 'JMS.STREAM.PURCHASE' and 'JMS.STREAM.SALES' were
both restricted to JMS semantics.

B. WebSphere MQ Message Broker
The SupportPac, "WebSphere Business Integration Message Broker -
MQOptimizedFlow Node ( IA0Z )" will enable you to install a new
node into the message brokers toolkit which provides a
Publish-Subscribe message flow for MQ-JMS messages optimized for
use in the environments described above.

3. Conclusion
==============
In a trivial publish subscribe benchmark where a single consumer
consumes all messages produced by a single producer then performance
improved by over 100% by setting MQ_RCVISOL_UNCOMMITTED,
MQJMS_PROCESSING_SHORT,outcomeNotification=NO,
OptimisticPublication=YES and by using a stream whose name started
with the JmsStreamPrefix of the WebSphere MQ publish/subscribe
broker. This test was run in an environment where a high performance
disk cache was active. In an environment with higher latency disks
then a greater improvement would be likely. In more sophisticated
benchmarks then the cost of reliable I/O can usually be amortized
across a large number of producers and consumers and the potential
performance benefits of a more synchronous implementation are
typically outweighed by the reduced application independence such a
design imposes.

o Microsoft Transaction Server and IBM WebSphere MQ Extended
Transactional Client

This configuration is supported for clients at Fixpack 7 (CSD07) or
later. For more details and any updates, please see APAR number

----------------------------
There is no special information for this fix pack.

H) Fix Pack CSD06 (PTF U200202)
----------------------------


o SSL:

In January 2004 some certificates supplied as part of the default
Queue Manager Key Repository expired. The certificates were
automatically inserted into key databases at key database creation
time. These expired certificates affect the UNIX platforms and the
Windows platform in slightly different ways, so please see the
appropriate section below for actions you need to take.

Expired certificates on the UNIX Platforms
==========================================
On the UNIX Platforms the following two certificates are affected by
this:

The certificate labelled
'VeriSign Class 3 CA Individual Subscriber-Persona Not Validated'
which expired on the 7th January and

The certificate labelled
'VeriSign Class 2 CA-Persona Not Validated'
which expired on the 6th January

The expired certificates impact MQ and GSKit (the program used on
UNIX platforms to administer certificates) in two ways:

1. SSL connections requiring one of the recently expired certificates
to authenticate personal certificates will fail.
2. Due to a GSKit defect it may be impossible to create new key
databases.

This CSD provides a new version of GSKit which contains a fix for
problem 2 so the expired certificate no longer prevent the creation
of a key database. The newly created key databases will also include
the replacement (valid) certificates from Verisign, which addresses
problem 1.

Customers who are already using these certificates to validate
connections will not be affected by problem 2 (they have already
created the key database) but they will need to manually upgrade the
certificate to the valid versions to address problem 1. The
replacement certificates can be obtained from Verisign and inserted
into the key database using the steps described below:

Step One - Obtain the replacement certificates. Customers need to
contact VeriSign who should provide instructions for obtaining
currently valid certificates.

Step Two - Put the replacement certificates into the keystore:
2.1. Start iKeyman
2.2. Open keystore
2.3. Select "signer certificates"
2.4. Click add certificate.
2.5. Select type "Base64-encode ASCII data"
2.6. Enter the file name saved in Step One above and click OK or use
the "Browse" button to select the file saved in Step One and
click Open followed by OK.
2.7. There will be a pop-up window to enter a label for the new
certificate. Enter a label (e.g., Verisign Class 3) and click OK.
2.8. Repeat for all required certificates
2.9. End iKeyman or close the keystore.
2.10. Recycle the queue manager to pick up the new certificates.

Expired certificates on the Windows Platform
============================================
On the Windows platform the following three certificates are affected
by this:

The certificate labelled/issued to
'VeriSign Class 3 CA Individual Subscriber-Persona Not Validated'
which expired on the 7th January and

The certificate labelled/issued to
'VeriSign Class 2 CA-Persona Not Validated'
which expired on the 6th January and

The certificate labelled/issued to
'For VeriSign authorized testing only. No assurances (C)VS 1997'
which expired on the 4th March 2003.

The expired certificates impact MQ because SSL connections requiring
one of these CA certificates to authenticate personal certificates
will fail.

Customers who are using these certificates to validate connections
will need to manually upgrade the certificate to the valid versions.
The replacement certificates can be obtained from Verisign and
inserted into the key database using the steps described below:

Step One - Obtain the replacement certificates. Customers need to
contact VeriSign who should provide instructions for obtaining
currently valid certificates.

Step two - Put the replacement certificates into the keystore:
1. Open MQ Explorer
2. Right click the Queue Manager that requires the updated
certificates. Select 'Properties'
3. Click the 'SSL' tab
4. Click the 'Manage SSL Certificates...' button
5. Click the 'Add...' button
6. Select the location where the certificates are (either a file or
copy them from another store - depending on how you obtained the
certificates from Verisign)
7. Click 'Add'
8. Repeat for all required certificates
9. Close the MQ Explorer GUI windows.


o New Queue Attribute

This WebSphere MQ V5.3 update introduces a new queue attribute
NPMCLASS which applies to local and model queues. NPMCLASS can
take one of two values:

1.NPMCLASS(NORMAL) - This is the default value and indicates
that non-persistent messages on this queue are only lost following
a failure, or a queue manager shutdown. These messages will be
discarded in the event of a queue manager restart.

2.NPMCLASS(HIGH) - This setting enables non-persistent messages on
this queue to be retained across a queue manager restart.
Non-persistent messages may still be lost in the event of a
failure.

The WebSphere MQ V5.3 JMS classes are extended to allow exploitation
of the NPMCLASS queue attribute. This is done by adding a new value,
JMSC.MQJMS_PER_NPHIGH, to the list of p persistence modes accepted by
the Destination.setPersistence(int persistence) method. If this
value is set and the underlying queue(s) supports it, then persistent
JMS messages will be mapped to non-persistent (MQPER_NOT_PERSISTENT)
MQ messages. If the underlying queue(s) do not specify
NPMCLASS(HIGH), then persistent JMS messages will map to persistent
(MQPER_PERSISTENT) MQ messages.

In order to determine if the underlying queue supports NPMCLASS then
when JMSC.MQJMS_PER_NPHIGH is specified the JMS classes will issue
an MQINQ against the base queue. JMSC.MQJMS_PER_NPHIGH should not
be specified when the JMS application is not authorized to inquire
upon the base queue.

It is the administrator's responsibility to ensure that all
appropriate queues specify NPMCLASS(HIGH). Note that for
Publish/Subscribe applications, both the publisher and subscriber
queues must be specify NPMCLASS(HIGH).

For maximum reliability it is advised that the JMS Persistent
attribute is mapped to WebSphere MQ persistence rather than use of
JMSC.MQJMS_PER_NPHIGH.


o JMS1.1

WebSphere MQ classes for Java Message Service (also referred to as
WebSphere MQ JMS) are a set of Java classes that implement Sun's Java
Message Service (JMS) interfaces to enable JMS programs to access
WebSphere MQ systems. This WebSphere MQ V5.3 update implements
Version 1.1 of the JMS API specification, which is backwards
compatible with Version 1.0.2b. Both the point-to-point and
publish/subscribe models of JMS are supported. New features of the
Version 1.1 implementation are shown here:

Provides a common set of interfaces for a domain independent view of
both the point-to-point and publish/subscribe messaging domains,
Semantic differences between the messaging domains are retained,
Enables actions from both the point to point and publish/subscribe
domains to be included in the same transaction, Domain unification
provides a simplified client programming model. JMS 1.1 cross-domain
objects can only be used where both point-to-point and
publish/subscribe use the same connection properties


For more details, refer to the "WebSphere MQ Using Java" book, book
form number SC34-6066-02 included with this fix pack.
When the CSD has been unpacked, the .pdf file will be in
'C:\Program Files\IBM\Source\WebSphere MQ CSD06 EnUs' by default,
or whatever other directory the user chose to unpack the CSD into.

There is a minor error in this version of the Using Java book:
In Chapter 10, "Writing WebSphere MQ JMS applications" and
Chapter 12, "Writing WebSphere MQ JMS 1.1 applications"
In the section "Specifying a range of ports for client connections",
the last sentence of the first paragraph should contain the phrase
"... or a range of ports ...",
and not "... or a range of points ...".

For JMS1.0.2 applications that use accessor methods on
ConnectionFactory objects and are compiled using a Java SDK1.3
compiler and are to be deployed on BOTH WebSphere MQ V5.3 CSD06 or
later and WebSphere MQ V5.3 CSD05 or earlier, special measures are
required to ensure correct execution in both environments. Failure
to do this might result in a NoSuchMethodError exception being thrown
by the JVM.

To avoid this either:
- compile the application using the CSD05, or earlier, version of the
WebSphere MQ classes for JMS.
- or compile the application using Java SDK1.4 or later on either
environment.

Applications build with the 'WebSphere MQ Classes for .NET' assembly
(amqmdnet.dll) will cause the CLR to throw a 'FileNotFoundException'.
This is because the CLR can't find the assembly in the application.

To allow the CLR to find the assembly either:

Share the assembly by installing it in the 'global assembly cache'
(GAC).

The 'WebSphere MQ Classes for .NET' assembly is installed in the
GAC by executing the following command:

gacutil /i amqmdnet.dll

This will allow applications to find the assembly.

Alternatively a config file can be created to tell the CLR where to
find the 'WebSphere MQ Classes for .NET' assembly.

Example config file for nmqsget.exe (config file name is
application.exe.config - i.e. nmqsget.exe.config)



<configuration>
<runtime>
<assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
<dependentAssembly>
<assemblyIdentity name="amqmdnet" publicKeyToken="dd3cb1c9aae9ec97" culture="neutral" />
<codeBase version="1.0.0.3" href="file://c:\mqm\bin\amqmdnet.dll" />
</dependentAssembly>
</assemblyBinding>
</runtime>
</configuration>





J) Fix Pack CSD04 (PTF U200190)
----------------------------

o 73019,72805,73069 - Firewall Support

The restrictions on the use of the local address property, used to
support firewall requirements from base Java and JMS have been
removed in fix pack CSD04.

However the following new information will be put into the JMS
publication information under firewall support and will be marked
as iSeries only.

When using Local Address for firewall sockets the HostName
MUST always be explicitly stated in the Java/JMS calls even if
the Client and Server are on the same machine.

For example, use setHostName(< actual local host name >) on
MQTopicConnectionFactory to enable the firewall support to
work correctly when the Client and Server are on the same
machine. Do not allow the HostName to default to localhost if
firewall support is required.


K) Fix Pack CSD03 (PTF U200187)
----------------------------

o 73019,72805,73069 - Firewall Support

Restrictions on the use of the local address property, used to
support firewall requirements from base Java and JMS.

1.When the Client is on one machine and the Server is on a
different machine the local address property IP address must
ALWAYS be specified along with the port range.

2.Do not use the local address property on machines with more
than one network card.


L) Fix Pack CSD01 (PTF U200181)
----------------------------

o 67831 - Include "properties" files in com.ibm.mq.jar

Fix pack CSD01 moves the "mqji*.properties" files from their
original position in directory "../java/lib" to "com.ibm.mq.jar".
Any subsequent product release, including the recent product
refreshes at service levels 5.3.0.1 and 5.3.0.2, will delete the
original files and also remove the "../java/lib" entry from
CLASSPATH. Fix pack CSD01 only adds the files to "com.ibm.mq.jar"
- it does not remove the old files, nor does it update CLASSPATH.
To prevent problems in future due to using an old version of
these files instead of the new version, you are recommended to
manually remove the "../java/lib" entry from CLASSPATH and to
delete the following files from directory "../java/lib":

mqji.properties
mqji_de.properties
mqji_en.properties
mqji_en_US.properties
mqji_es.properties
mqji_fr.properties
mqji_it.properties
mqji_ja.properties
mqji_ko.properties
mqji_pt.properties
mqji_zh_CN.properties
mqji_zh_TW.properties

C) Cross Product Dependencies
--------------------------

1. TXSeries CICS and IBM WebSphere MQ Extended Transactional
Client

If you are using TXSeries CICS as the XA compliant Transaction
Manager to coordinate the IBM WebSphere MQ Extended
Transactional Client, then either the TPM or AXLIB parameter
of the xa_open string must be supplied, see the IBM WebSphere
MQ Extended Transactional Clients book, Chapter 3.
Configuring an extended transactional client, for more details
of these parameters.

The version of TXSeries CICS used must be:
V5.0 + PTF 1 + e-fix 6 or later PTF

Note that the pre-build switch load file mqcc4swi.dll is built
for CICS V4.3, so is of no use, see below for instructions to
build a CICS V5.0 switch load file.

2. Microsoft Transaction Server and IBM WebSphere MQ Extended
Transactional Client

This configuration is supported for clients at Fixpack 7 (CSD07)
or later. For more details and any updates, please see APAR
number II13466.

Note that the queue manager name you use in MQCONN or MQCONNX
cannot be blank or a single asterisk (*), nor can the name start
with an asterisk.

3. IBM WebSphere MQ V5.3 Server and IBM WebSphere MQ Extended
Transactional Client

The service level of the IBM WebSphere MQ V5.3 server, to
which the IBM WebSphere MQ Extended Transactional Client is
connected, must be 5.3.0.3 (fix pack CSD03) or later service
levels 5.3.0.x.

4. TXSeries CICS and IBM WebSphere MQ V5.3 Server or IBM WebSphere
MQ Extended Transactional Client

Note that the pre-build switch load file (Server: mqmc4swi.dll;
Client: mqcc4swi.dll) is built for CICS V4.3, to build a CICS V5.0
switch load file, do the following:

For IBM WebSphere MQ V5.3 Server:

create a file called amqzsc5.def with the following in:

LIBRARY AMQZSC5
EXPORTS
CICS_XA_Init

Then issue the following compiler statement if using Microsoft

G) Fix Pack CSD08 (PTF U200215)
-----------------------------

This is the seventh fix pack for IBM WebSphere MQ for Windows
Version 5.3 from IBM. It is delivered via PTF U200215 for APAR
IC39515.

Number of APARs in fix pack = 58.

It contains fixes for all the problems listed below:

IC39515 - Cumulative maintenance #07 (CSD08) for WebSphere MQ for Windows V5.3
IY53820 - Cumulative maintenance #07 (CSD08) for WebSphere MQ for AIX V5.3
IY53823 - Cumulative maintenance #07 (CSD08) for WebSphere MQ for HP-UX V5.3
IY53862 - Cumulative maintenance #07 (CSD08) for WebSphere MQ for Solaris V5.3
IY53871 - Cumulative maintenance #07 (CSD08) for WebSphere MQ for Linux for Intel V5.3
IY53872 - Cumulative maintenance #07 (CSD08) for WebSphere MQ for Linux for zSeries V5.3

IC39048 - JMS client applications will cease processing messages for
no apparent reason. Message consumers will never receive
messages despite messages being available. No exceptions
are thrown.
Trace shows that a SocketException "connection reset"
occurred. This is wrapped in a MQRC 2009 error.
IC39336 - Process hangs and the stack dump of the thread shows
confirm that the problem is due to DllMain, querying
UserName and OwnerSid.
IC39367 - MQ Explorer opens fine, yet when an attempt is made to
expand the queue manager to display the queues and
channels, it eventually times out stating that the program
is not responding. The problem affects users when
connected to a network using network software other than
the Windows TCP stack. For example using a dialer for VPN
connection.
IC39409 - A channel is defined with a short retry interval. For
example 4 seconds. When the channel ends with an error,
the retry messages occur at 10 second intervals rather than
4.
IC39463 - The listener process in the MMC Services snap in console
shows the listener is in stopped status but it is actually
running. Attempting to issue a start on the listener does
not change the displayed status - it still appears to be
stopped. Note that channels are still able to connect to
the Queue Manager (because the listener IS running although
not displayed from within the GUI).
IC39530 - COM, .NET. readUTF and writeUTF functions from Java, .NET,
and COM produce inconsistent results. Messages
interchanged between these interfaces may not be compatible
resulting in exceptions like:
java.io.EOFException
at java.io.DataInputStream.readFully(DataInputStream.java:268)
at java.io.DataInputStream.readUTF(DataInputStream.java:639)
at java.io.DataInputStream.readUTF(DataInputStream.java:610)
at com.ibm.mq.MQMessage.readUTF(MQMessage.java:779
IC39601 - Clustering. Many AMQ9456 error messages are found in the
queue manager error logs when queues have not been used for
some time and have this has allowed the subscriptions to
these queues to expire.
IC39945 - Installations where Hyper Threading processors are
available: The number of physical processors is incorrectly
detected and message AMQ7198 is created.
IC40139 - MQ Explorer GUI, queues view, right mouse click->status.
An FDC file with Probe Id MS099001 from component
HandleBadMQAIResponse is created if the queue is not opened
by an application
IC40168 - amqmdain utility: if used to set the DefaultQueueManager
name using the reg option, you get the following error
message:
"Invalid stanza DefaultQueueManager specified for All Qmgrs"
If the stanza name is changed from DefaultQueueManager to
DefaultQueuemanager ( m in small case) in the command, it
does not produce the error message.
IC40169 - The logger process (amqharmn for linear logging) leaks
memory. When the memory is exhausted, the queue manager
hangs with FDC files containing probe IDs XY034101 or
XY337101.
IC40221 - The PartnerName in the MQCXP structure is not set to the
logged-on user name from the client when passed to an exit
on a SVRCONN channel.
IC40227 - The user creates a lot of dynamic queues due to the
caching which occurs from the channel processes (they
cache 200 queue handles per channel). Over a long period,
the logs fill up and the queue manager reports problems
relating to a lack of available log space.
IC40444 - C++: MQI calls return an 2009 "(MQRC_CONNECTION_BROKEN)"
when the Queue Manager is restarted.
IC40484 - SSL: When a user mistakenly adds a certificate containing
only the public key to the queue manager certificate store,
removes it and subsequently adds the correct certificate
containing the private/public keys, the User interface
fails to show the most recent certificate. It continues to
show the certificate with only the public key. As a
result, the certificate can be assigned to the queue
manager using the wizard as the valid certificate is not
present for selection.
IC40533 - JMS: If using MQConnection Caching an exception
javax.resource.spi.ResourceAllocationException is thrown.
Linked exception is NullPointerException thrown from
com.ibm.mq.ClientConnectionRequestInfo.fixedEquals method.
IC40582 - A new parameter was added to runmqlsr in MQ5.3, which is
-i (The IP address for the listener). The amqmdain utility
does not honor this -i parameter. Running the command
amqmdain crtlsr -t TCP -p 1414 -i fails with error
message AMQ7964. This APR provides support for -i.
IC40560 - When MQ applications running under Windows MTS or COM+ disconnect
from a queue manager the connection is released after only 30 seconds
if not reused. This can make it awkward for users to reuse the connection
for another thread or application.
IC40733 - Publish/subscribe support pack MA0C: The broker
intermittently stops with an FDC file with probe XC130031.
This reports an exception in the pubsub worker process
AMQFCXBA.
IC40746 - SSL: Channels may not start if the user has an expired
certificate in the key database as well as a valid
(replacement) certificate in the key database.
IC40777 - SSL: After a CRL had expired (the expiration date on a CRL
is also called the 'Valid To' date) MQ on Windows continues
to use it as if it were still valid. The actual behavior
should be to not allow ANY SSL channels to start while the
CRL is invalid.
IC40850 - Using any version other than English of the MQ Explorer
console and attempting to stop a Channel by right clicking
and selecting
All Tasks --> Stop on the channel.
In the "New State" combo box if the customer:
Selects 'Inactive' it will show 'Stopped' status.
Selects 'Stopped' it will shoe 'Inactive' status.
IC40862 - .NET: Users trying to access strongly-signed amqmdnet.dll
using any partially trusted code will encounter a Microsoft
security exception.
IC40975 - A message is put under syncpoint and expires before it is
committed. During this time, messages are put and got from
the queue. The queue depth shown in runmqsc is non-zero,
amqsbcg does not display the message(s) left on the queue,
implying they are in a unit of work, but dspmqtrn and
amqldmpa outputs confirm there is no residual units of
work outstanding.
IC41163 - JMS: Putting to a remote fully qualified queue which is not
in a cluster results in a failure after upgrading from
CSD05 to CSD06. This results in error:
com.ibm.mq.MQException: MQJE001: Completion Code 2, Reason
2045
IC41195 - JMS: Publish Subscribe: An application publishes a message
and then tries to register a subscriber for that message.
As expected a 2033 error is returned but a null pointer
exception is generated:
Exception:javax.jms.JMSException: MQJMS1016: an internal
error has occurred.
Detail:{0}Linked exception: java.lang.NullPointerException
TopicSubscriber tsubscriber = tSession.createSubscriber(t).
IC42309 - Connection handle leak with MQ 5.3 on Windows using MQ JMS
which results in a mqrc_handle_not_available error.
IY53290 - FDC files are created on two program threads when one
thread is opening a pre-existing dynamic queue while
another thread is considering it for reuse. The FDC files
may have probe IDs of XC304020, XY398007, AO175001 and
AO173001. Object damaged/wounded/missing FDCs can follow.
The problem is most likely to be seen as problems on two
separate threads at the same time.
IY50293 - An FDC file is produced for a read error - disk full. The
probe ids in the file are
AD030001 adiReadFile xecF_E_UNEXPECTED_SYSTEM_RC
AQ168001 aqpReadData arcE_PAST_EOF
IY53827 - A queue manager agent process ends after a SIGSEGV in
aqhAllocMsg.
IY53946 - User apps trap if they specify a Format in a message header
which does not describe the following data.
IY53967 - Users using Dual Unit of Work find MQ traps.
IY54314 - An infinite succession of FDC files are created with
probe ID AO180000 from function aouLocateMultipleEntryName.
The same FDC can also be created when deleting an dynamic
object which is no longer in use.
IY54397 - After using the setmqaut command with an object type qmgr
and the -remove flag, all attempts to issue
setmqaut -remove commands against that queue manager with
object type qmgr result in:
AMQ7085: Object , type qmgr not found.
IY54508 - Clustering: If CLWLMode=FAST in mqs.ini, calling MQXCLWLN
from a cluster workload exit returns 2102,
MQRC_ENVIRONMENT_ERROR.
IY55063 - Errors in setmqaut commands generated by amqoamd.
A warning message is generated:
FAIL : setmqaut cannot generate +crt authority for
storage_class objects, as none currently exist.
An invalid auth spec is generated, resulting in this error
message when the generated setmqaut commands are executed:
AMQ7097: You gave an authorization specification that is
not valid.
IY55558 - Channels stop sending messages because a message is stuck
on the transmit queue. If the internal MQGET from the
transmit queue fails the message is left on the queue, the
channel goes into RETRYING. When the channel restarts at
the retry interval the message fails again. This blocks
the channel and stops later messages from flowing. This
fix moves the failing message to the dead letter queue.
IY55707 - JAVA: MissingResourceException then rc 2102 when an entry
cannot be found in a message file.
Details of the exception:
An MQJE001: Completion Code 2, Reason 2102
(MQRC_RESSOURCE_PROBLEM) can be thrown:
at com.ibm.mq.MQManagedConnectionJ11.authenticate
at
com.ibm.mq.MQBindingsManagedConnectionFactoryJ11._createManaged
Connection(MQBindingsManagedConnectionFactoryJ11.java:163)
atcom.ibm.mq.MQBindingsManagedConnectionFactoryJ11.createManaged
Connection(MQBindingsManagedConnectionFactoryJ11.java:189)
atcom.ibm.mq.StoredManagedConnection.<init>
(StoredManagedConnection.java:80)
IY56525 - Channel stops when trying to send a large message. The
channel must have CONVERT set and be sending a message
which can expand on conversion: for example if the target
CCSID is 1208 (UTF-8 Unicode). This may be accompanied by
an FDC file with probe XC023005, and description 12 - There
is not enough memory available now from iconv.
IY56641 - Clustering: If the LOCLADDR attribute is defined on a
manual CLUSSDR, the attribute is not used when the channel
is started the second time. Instead, the LOCLADDR is
copied from the CLUSRCVR in the cluster cache, if present.
The attribute is used if there is no cache copy of the
CLUSRCVR, that is if the channel is being started for the
first time. Change this so that the IP address and port
that the outbound channel binds to is a merger of the IP
address from the LOCLADDR on the manual CLUSSDR, and the
port range from the cluster cache. If there is no port
range in the cache, the port range from the CLUSSDR
LOCLADDR is used.
IY56696 - dspmqtrn is incorrectly returning 71 'Unexpected Error'
when 102 'No Transaction Found' is expected.
IY56725 - If an application calls MQCONN/MDISC in a loop in an MQ
client application, a memory small leak may be seen.
IY57062 - SSL: When using a multithreaded client application
connecting to MQ using SSL, an FDC file reporting a SIGSEGV
with probe XC130003 is received.
IY57683 - Channels: When a channel is started, the short and long
retry counts, SHORTRTS and LONGRTS, are not always reset.
IY57774 - When a JMS Publisher publishes messages on a topic, the
first message takes a long time to be published.
IY58921 - SSL with Clustering: SIGSEGV in the repository manager.
IY59008 - Clustering: SIGSEGV occurs in AMQRRMFA process on systems
using large number of clusters or clustered objects.
IY60052 - At fixpack 07 level, if a queue damaged many FDC files with
Probe Ids of AO173001 from component aouLockObjectCatalogue
and AO175001 from component aouLockQHandle. The queue
manager then hangs.
IY60601 - JMS: Memory leak when users create many MQQueueReceivers
within a single session.
IY60895 - An FDC file is created with Probe Id ZF048020, from
component zfu_as_searchprincipallist with a major error
code of 16 (EBUSY) returned from xcsSetgrent.
PQ89406 - JMS: A JMS QueueReceiver with JMSXDeliveryCount < 1 will
ignore MQ messages that have been rolled back once.
An MDB with selector whatever and JMSXDeliveryCount < 2
will ignore MQ messages that have been rolled back once.
An MDB with selector whatever and JMSXDeliveryCount < 1
will not pick up any MQ messages.
SE14442 - The PNGMQMCHL command (iSeries only) and the MQSC
command 'PING CHANNEL' fail when SSL is enabled, but the
channels start and operate correctly.
SE14675 - RUNMQLSR (MQ threaded listener) is ending unexpectedly with
an exception (MCH3601 on iSeries) when ending dual
pipelined channels.
SE15031 - The Queue Manager ends unexpectedly and creates an FDC file
with probe id AQ080000, from component aqhLoadMsgDetails
and Major Errorcode of STOP_ALL.
76916 - SSL:JAVA: setting the tcf.setSSLPeerName("") the following
exception is created:
javax.jms.JMSException: MQJMS1006:
invalid value for SSL Peer DN:
78176 - JMS: add instructions to sample file JMSTestApplet.java
78814 - JMS: creating a Temporary Queue results in a
NullPointerException from
com/ibm/mq/jms/MQConnection.createTemporaryQueue.
79364 - The returnedLength field in MQGMO can be in the wrong byte
order, if the requested order is big endian.
79498 - A long running application which spawns threads that
connect to MQ, but which end the thread without explicitly
disconnecting, leave unused agent processes running.
79892 - JMS: Connection Meta Data is reporting JMS version as 1.0
but this should be 1.1.
79906 - an FDC file is created with Probe Id XC130004, from
Component xehExceptionHandler. The function stack shows
the function executing is xcsCheckSubpoolProcessH.
80503 - Inquire qstatus with tracing on results in the agent
process ending with an FDC file created with Probe Id of
XC130031 from Component xehExceptionHandler and the last
entry in the MQM Function Stack is
kqiInquireQueueHandleStatus.
81093 - After ending a queue manager amqmdain start <queue manager>

check a CRL.
82119 - JMS: When the broker and queue manager are on different
system types, an javax.jms.JMSException is created:
MQJMS1087: Unrecognizable or invalid RFH content.

Version 5.3 from IBM. It is delivered via PTF U200212 for APAR
IC38022.

Number of APARs in fix pack = 48.

It contains fixes for all the problems listed below:

IC38022 - Cumulative maintenance #06 (fix pack CSD07) for WebSphere MQ for Windows V5.3
IY50364 - Cumulative maintenance #06 (fix pack CSD07) for WebSphere MQ for AIX V5.3
IY50375 - Cumulative maintenance #06 (fix pack CSD07) for WebSphere MQ for HP-UX V5.3

IY50378 - Cumulative maintenance #06 (fix pack CSD07) for WebSphere MQ for Solaris V5.3


IC38202 - FDC file indicating a sigsegv exception in component
rrxReportError.
IC38311 - An API Exit puts a message within the BEFORE CMIT entry
using MQPUT with SYNCPOINT which fails when runmqchl is a
SENDER or SERVER channel type. Then it gets a 2195, thereby
failing the channel. An FDC file is created with a Probe
ID of AT032010, from component atmStartOp.
IC38646 - When the customer trys to start a channel using a channel
security exit on WebSphere MQ 5.3 on Windows 2000 the
channel fails and creates an FDC file. This shows the
process is amqrmppa.exe, the probe ID is XC130031 and
reports there was a Stack Overflow Exception.
IC38899 - JMS: When using a message selector that contains either an
IS NULL or IS NOT NULL clause, messages that meet the
selection criteria are not detected and are left on the
queue.
IC38907 - If the queue manager name passed to amqiclen contains a
.(dot), for example MY.QMGR, amqiclen does not produce any
output.
IC39007 - JMS: After deploying a Message Driven Bean (MDB) that uses
an ALIAS queue, the listener port that is bound to the
ALIAS queue fails to start, and the following messages
appear in the servers SystemOut.log file:
JMSExceptionL E WMSG0018E: Error on JMSConnection for MDB
<MDB name> , JMSDestination <destination name> :
javax.jms.JMSException: MQJMS2008: failed to open MQ queue
at com.ibm.mq.jms.services.ConfigEnvironment.
newException(ConfigEnvironment.java:540)
.....
com.ibm.mq.MQException: MQJE001: Completion Code 2,
Reason 2035 at com.ibm.mq.MQQueueManager.
accessQueue(MQQueueManager.java:1527)
.....
IC39125 - An 'Access Violation' occurs during MQDISC processing by an
application which is simultaneously connected to multiple
queue managers.
IC39186 - A failure occurs running hamvmqm to move the queue manager
data and logs from one location to another. FDC files
created can have a probe MC171015 (CreateMQDirectory) or
MC174022 (CopyMQFiles).
IC39205 - MS07 support pack not installed properly using adding a
'Service Component' from the MQ Services GUI.
IC39234 - MQRC_CD_ERROR (2277, 8e5) or trap / exception attempting an
MQCONNX from COBOL on Windows.
IC39432 - JMS: When sending a message to a queue in CCSID 819 then
receiving the message and putting the message back to the
queue exception received. Throwing javax.jms.JMSException:
MQJMS1006: invalid value for JMS_IBM_Character_Set:ISO8859_1
IC39436 - JMS: If a Connection has been used to create a number of
Message Consumers, and an exception is detected on that
connection, the Exception Listener for that Connection is
called multiple times with the same exception.
IC39679 - Cannot create services either with the MMC MQ Explorer GUI
or the command line amqmdain (with crtlst, crttrm etc).
IC39898 - JMS: When setting the correlationId in a message and
setting the same selector on the MessageConsumer, the
message is not received. This works with base ascii
characters but with characters greater than hex 80 or
Unicode in the correlationId the get fails.
IC39916 - When rcdmqing reaches a temporary dynamic queue while
recording the objects, it creates an AMQ7087 msg:
Object AMQ.xxxxxx , type queue is a temporary object and
fails to record the rest of the objects.
IC41691 - CURDEPTH value does not reset after restart of queue
manager.
IY29028 - SDR channels stay in INITIALIZING state during start-up.
IY35297 - Clustering: MQSeries did not return an error when an
MQCOMMIT was not successful in a clustering environment.
IY47766 - After enabling pipelining on a channel that sends messages
larger then 4MB, regular AMQ9514 'Channel <name> is in
use' and AMQ9558 'Remote Channel is not currently
available' messages are reported.
IY49438 - MQBEGIN fails with RC= 2128 ( MQRC_UOW_IN_PROGRESS ).
Two applications connect to the same queue manager and they
run transactions using two phase commit at the same time.
If one of them executes a transaction (not using two phase
commit) without an MQBEGIN after an MQBACK, the next
MQBEGIN of the other application fails with 2128.
IY50439 - An FDC file is created with probe CO052000, claiming to have
received invalid data. This is seen when the sending end
violates the TSH protocol. A new FDC (probe CO000044) is
created to directly report the protocol violation and to
dump the received data.
IY50795 - An MQ application takes a long time to do its processing
and the transaction monitor software assumes the
transaction has timed out. The queue manager fails to
complete the xa_rollback call it receives from the
transaction monitor and program amqzlaa0 creates FDC files
with probe IDs of XC304020 from xlsDestroyMutex and
XY398007 from xcsFreeMemBlock.
IY51152 - An FDC file with probe RM409000 from rriWaitSecondary is
followed by XC130003 from rriSendThread2 from the same
process (runmqchi), causing the channel initiator to die.
This stops all channels running as threads in runmqchi,
and stops channels from restarting, and the channel state
stays as RETRYING.
IY51386 - JMS pubsub keeps sending messages to queue after
MQRC_Q_FULL, RC2053, is returned. Messages are put to the
dead letter queue, until it reaches its maximum queue
depth.
IY51907 - Checkpointing for users with large queues of persistent
messages takes along time and locks out other operations.
RUNMQSC is not able to execute.
IY52011 - Channels create an FDC file with a 'channel in use'
message.
IY52065 - Linking the XA switch load file with DB2 version 8 will
fail because the xaswit.mak file only contains linker
details for DB2 version 7 and earlier.
IY52182 - Channel name is missing from message AMQ9514 when
displayed by runmqsc.
IY52344 - amqiclen -p <qmgr-prefix> does not work; it fails to find
mqs.ini. Create a queue manager with MQSPREFIX set so that
the queue manager data is in a separate directory, for
example:
# export MQSPREFIX=/var/mqm/QMGRDIR
# crtmqm NEWQMGR
amqiclen -c -m NEWQMGR -v -p QMGRDIR</b> gives the error
message:
Unable to get subpool lock. mqs.ini does not exist.
IY52444 - If the queue manager name passed to amqiclen contains a
.(dot), for example MY.QMGR, amqiclen does not produce any
output.
IY52569 - dis q(*) and dis ql(*) runmqsc commands hang unexpectedly
while a large queue is being loaded.
IY52572 - runmqsc is connected to a remote qmgr and the DIS QS
command is issued with a wild card specified in the queue
name. After the end of the list, runmqsc always displays
AMQ8416: MQSC timed out waiting for a response from the
command server.
IY52575 - Improvements to amqiclen utility:
1. SEM: -1 -1 is output if the semaphore set associated
with the queue manager QMGR directory is not found.
2. Add -h flag to print headings in the amqiclen output.
3. Add -t flag to work with the -x flag to remove the
trace control SEM and SHM IPC resources associated with
/var/mqm/errors.
4. Add the description of the errno (strerror) to error
output.
IY52951 - When strmqcsv is started repeatedly without stopping after
approximately 8182 times the strmqcsv command creates an
FDC file (probe-id XC307010 from xlsRequestMutex). Also
with each restart of strmqcsv (after 8182 times) strmqcsv
returns with AMQ8101 error code.
IY53065 - An FDC file (Probe ID:ZL043050) is generated with a
segmentation violation(SIGSEGV). The customer uses group
messages. This problem is generated only when the
receiving process is completed without getting a part of
the messages.
IY53173 - Improve parameters traced on API exits.
IY53481 - Return value from rcrmqobj is incorrectly set to 71
(Unexpected error) when -z option is used.
IY53665 - JMS: Listener Port fails to automatically recover after a
broken connection is detected. The problem occurs after
errors:
JMSExceptionL E WMSG0018E: Error on JMSConnection for MDB
<MDB name> , JMSDestination <jms destination> :
javax.jms.JMSException: MQJMS2002: failed to get message

IY53668 - High CPU use in a threaded MCA process, for example:
amqrmppa, runmqlsr, or runmqchi, when a channel runs an
exit which creates a thread which persists after the exit
is called for MQXR_TERM.
IY53700 - Clustering: There is an alias queue defined on QMGR_A whose
target queue (targq) is a queue on QMGR_B. The queue on
QMGR_B is a CLUSTER queue. The alias queue on QMGR_A is
not in the cluster. When putting a message to the alias
queue, the message goes to the Dead Letter Queue with a
reason of 2082 0x00000822 MQRC_UNKNOWN_ALIAS_BASE_Q.
IY53907 - Clustering: During MQSET a user who has all permissions for
the cluster queue, but does not have a put permissions to
the SYSTEM.CLUSTER.COMMAND.QUEUE. The agent fails with a
2035 error and creates an FDC file with probe KN204020 from
function KqiDoPendingChangeCLQ.
IY53917 - Sender or server channels went into STOPPED state after
migrating from WMQ 5.2 to WMQ 5.3 (see also SE14601)
IY53953 - JMS: When a JMS Client application experiences an error
delivering a message, it will invoke an Exception
Listener if one has been registered. If the Listener
attempts to close the existing connection by calling the
close() method on an instance of the MQQueueConnection
class, the Exception Listener will hang.
IY54013 - JMS: The customer finds that a message fails to be
delivered and the trace shows following information.
ServerSession W WMSG0031E:Exception processing JMS

I) Fix Pack CSD06 (PTF U200202)
----------------------------

This is the fifth fix pack for IBM WebSphere MQ for Windows
Version 5.3 from IBM. It is delivered via PTF U200202 for APAR
IC36779.

Number of APARs in fix pack = 46.

It contains fixes for all the problems listed below:
IC36779 - Cumulative maintenance #05 (fix pack CSD06) for WebSphere MQ for Windows V5.3
IY46790 - Cumulative maintenance #05 (fix pack CSD06) for WebSphere MQ for AIX V5.3
IY46791 - Cumulative maintenance #05 (fix pack CSD06) for WebSphere MQ for HP-UX V5.3
IY46801 - Cumulative maintenance #04 (fix pack CSD06) for WebSphere MQ for Linux for Intel V5.3
IY46802 - Cumulative maintenance #04 (fix pack CSD06) for WebSphere MQ for Linux for zSeries V5.3
IY46799 - Cumulative maintenance #05 (fix pack CSD06) for WebSphere MQ for Solaris V5.3


IC36223 - JMS/Java An exception occurred using MQJMS JMSStreamMessage
class java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException at
java.lang.System.arraycopy(Native Method) at
com.ibm.jms.JMSStreamMessage.readBytes(JMSStreamMessage.java:
416)
IC36673 - VB samples may display characters incorrectly.
VB samples provided with MQ could be misleading since
they do not set the codepage for MQPUT and MQGET or
convert on MQGET.
IC36780 - If ascii encoded hex CRLs are used, after setting the
SSLCRLNL attribute on an SSL sender channel the channel
will not start. It fails with an AMQ9686 error
(SSLCM_STORE_MANAGEMENT), and 80092009 is the Windows
return code CRYPT_E_UNEXPECTED_MSG_TYPE. The type of the
cryptographic message being decoded is different to that
which was expected.
IC36938 - JMS: A client doing a batched MQGET for a message of
more than 32767 bytes can generate an FDC file on the
server with probe CO007001 coming from component ccxSend
and a return code of rrcE_BAD_PARAMETER, with Comment1
showing Length. On the JMS client side, the symptom may be
that, simply, anything over 32k of the message appears
incorrect.
IC37456 - AMQ8077 Shows a blank object name when INQ is not
authorized.
IC37490 - Exception occurs when SNA client connection is used after
an upgrade to MQ 5.3 CSD04. The problem occurs after a SNA
client connection is established, and subsequently the MQ
libraries are unloaded and a subsequent thread ends. The
problem only occurs when the client application is written
in VisualAge C++ and the application uses the MQ C++
bindings.
IC37515 - Messages remain on the SYSTEM.CLUSTER.TRANSMIT.QUEUE for
ever if the queue is removed from a cluster and then added
into a cluster while an application is putting messages to
the queue.
IC37516 - A memory leak occurs in process dllhost.exe when Microsoft
messaging is reading MQSeries queues via the biztalk
adaptor.
IC37592 - When using the amqoamd utility to dump all authority
information with a -n option, no error message or output is
received for objects whose name is exactly 48 characters
long.
IC37610 - Memory and thread handle leak when mqm.dll is repeatedly
reloaded: this can happen if the application is a COM+
application which is involved in a transaction and the
msdtc repeatedly invokes mqm calls.
IC37611 - Customer tries to run an MQ command and gets an exception.
A DrWatson log showed the exception is a delay load
exception (C06D007E), and diagnosis showed it was for
PSAPI.dll.
IC37728 - After migrating from MQSeries v5.2 to WebSphere MQ V5.3, an
auto defined cluster sender channel fails to start
reporting error AMQ9519. This indicates that the channel
was not found.
IC38247 - If a user who is not in the mqm group attempts to run a
command, runmqlsr for example, an access violation error is
created.
IC38370 - .NET classes: An application tries to send a message over
4Mb and gets 2010 Error MQRC_DATA_LENGTH_ERROR) even after
increasing the queue manager specific maximum message
size, the queue maxmessagesize and the svrconn maxmsgsize
options.
IC38458 - .NET classes: VB samples throw unhandled exceptions if the
connect fails. The .net Visual Basic samples do not handle
non-existent or non-running queue managers, and attempting
to supply an invalid queue manager name results in an
unhandled exception.
IC38660 - If an application attempts to use the ApplicationIdData or
the ApplicationOriginData fields in a .net program and
supplies fewer bytes than the length of the field the
result is an exception (ArgumentOutOfRangeException from
set_ApplicationIdData).
IC39048 - JMS client applications will cease processing messages for
no apparent reason. Message consumers will never receive
messages despite messages being available. No exceptions
are thrown.
IY36646 - An amqpcsea process created an FDC file with probe ID
RM487001, which states that a channel that had unexpectedly
terminated, but the channel is still running.
IY46567 - Failure of a database (under transaction control by MQ in
global units of work) when ThreadOfControl is set to
PROCESS can result in MQCMIT calls rolling back the whole
transaction and giving a reason code of MQRC_BACKED_OUT.
Transaction integrity is not compromised.
IY46627 - An FDC file with PROBE ID XY019001 from XUFOPENINIEDIT can
be created with message AMQ8501 with a return code of
545261579 (LRCE_Q_MGR_NOT_AVAILABLE).
IY47486 - runmqsc or amqpcsea hang accessing cluster objects.
IY47595 - JMS: V5.3 is unable to use a empty message selector.
results in javax.jms.InvalidSelectorException: MQJMS0004:
JMS Client has given JMS Provider a message selector with
invalid syntax.
In MQSeries V5.2 / MA88, the JMS client was able to have an
empty message selector.
IY47735 - Process amqzllp0 received SIGSEGV caused by a queue having
buffers with non-zero write counts on buffers that are
NULL.
IY47946 - Scratchpad errors after upgrade from 5.2 to 5.3.
Trace shows rrxWriteSync rc=rrcE_RESOLVE_SCRATCHPAD_FAILED
Only occurs if IY45615 (in fix pack 5) has not been
applied.
IY47968 - JMS: non-durable subscriptions created by the application
may not be removed or durable subscriptions are still
marked as in-use. This can lead to a buildup of messages
or of dynamic queues, as well as MQJMS3023 exceptions (
Subscription has an active TopicSubscriber ).
IY48070 - Customer writes groups of messages to a queue. Later, if
they try to get a message from this queue, they will
receive reason code 2033 (0x000007f1 NO MSG AVAILABLE
MQRC_NO_MSG_AVAILABLE). When this problem occurs, if the
customer restarts their queue manager, then the same
application is able to get the message successfully.
IY48097 - JMS: pubsub applications may encounter problems if they
connect to MQ using a TopicConnectionFactory (TCF) that
does not specify a queue manager name.
IY48122 - JMS: When a pubsub application loses its connection to the
queue manager, eg. by receiving a linked MQException of
2009 (MQRC_CONNECTION_BROKEN), 2161 (MQRC_Q_MGR_QUIESCING),
2162 (MQRC_Q_MGR_STOPPING) and others, MQ may leave threads
hanging in the function SessionAsyncHelper.run().
IY48319 - If the reply message from the command server cannot be put
to the reply queue passed in the PCF command, the command
server fails to put the reply message to the DLQ with an
MQPUT1 failure of 2141 MQRC_DLH_ERROR.
IY48505 - When a message contains a LineFeed (New Line) character (x
15) within the data, MQ is incorrectly converting the x 15
character into x 25 . This data conversion is occurring
before the data is passed to the channel Message Receive
Exit.
IY49061 - Memory leak under agent process when many dynamic queues
are opened using MQOPEN .. MQCLOSE inside a single MQCONN
and MQDISC.
IY49117 - Clustering: an application may be able to put messages to a
cluster queue even if the PUT(INHIBITED) attribute is set.
IY49122 - Memory leak in runmqlsr may lead to the queue manager
hanging.
IY49267 - When using MQPUT1 from a client application to put to a
distribution list when the MQOD.Version is set to
MQOD_VERSION_2, the call fails with 2136
MQRC_MULTIPLE_REASONS (2085, 2086). It works if the
Version is set to MQOD_CURRENT_VERSION (3).
IY49278 - When an application puts multiple messages to a queue and
they are segmented by the queue manager, it is possible
that the program which gets the messages may receive a
reason code of MQRC_TRUNCATED_MSG_FAILED if its buffer is
not large enough to contain the largest messages on the
queue.
IY49648 - FDC file with probe ID is created XY180010 when using
MQCONNX with connection options MQCNO_HANDLE_SHARE_BLOCK
and MQCNO_HANDLE_SHARE_NO_BLOCK.
IY49687 - Message for error AMQ7217 has blank fields.
IY49983 - Process amqrmppa creates an FDC file with probe ID of
CO400001, component unknown, and major errorcode
RRCE_BAD_PARAMETER.
IY50128 - FDC file is created if SIGHUP sent to a process running
runmqsc.
IY50188 - Clustering: sender channels fail to start automatically
when messages arrive on the SYSTEM.CLUSTER.TRANSMIT.QUEUE.
These channels remain in INACTIVE state after disconnecting
normally due to reaching DISCINT.
IY50439 - FFST with probe CO052000 is dumped, claiming to have
received invalid data. In fact, the invalid data is a copy
of part of data just received.
IY60708 - JMS: Calling the createSender() method on an instance of
the MQQueueSession class results in the following exception
being generated:

javax.jms.InvalidDestinationException:
MQJMS0003: Destination not understood or no longer valid.
at com.ibm.mq.jms.MQQueueSession.
createSender(MQQueueSession.java:199)
at com.ibm.ejs.jms.
JMSQueueSenderHandle(JMSQueueSenderHandle.java:86)
at com.ibm.ejs.jms.JMSQueueSessionHandle.
createSender(JMSQueueSessionHandle.java:229)
75204 - If a queue manager has a name which is a subset of another
queue manager name, and if both of these have the same
database as an resource manager, then the first queue
manager can attempt to resolve indoubt transactions
belonging to other queue manager.
76370 - runmqsc with no parameters does not show default queue
manager name.
77038 - .NET classes: The TotalMEssageLength field in MQMessage
is not reset to 0 after the message has been cleared.
77458 - Java: java.lang.UnknownError sent to an application if
the queue manager is ended while the application is
in a sleep.
77888 - .NET classes: TotalMessageLength is set to zero if the get
message buffer length is less than the message length.


J) Fix Pack CSD05 (PTF U200197)
----------------------------

This is the fourth fix pack for IBM WebSphere MQ for Windows
Version 5.3 from IBM. It is delivered via PTF U200197 for APAR
IC35925.

Number of APARs in fix pack = 63.

It contains fixes for all the problems listed below:

IC35925 - Cumulative maintenance #04 (fix pack CSD05) for WebSphere MQ for Windows V5.3
IY41935 - Cumulative maintenance #04 (fix pack CSD05) for WebSphere MQ for AIX V5.3
IY41941 - Cumulative maintenance #04 (fix pack CSD05) for WebSphere MQ for HP-UX V5.3
IY41943 - Cumulative maintenance #03 (fix pack CSD05) for WebSphere MQ for Linux for Intel V5.3
IY41982 - Cumulative maintenance #03 (fix pack CSD05) for WebSphere MQ for Linux for zSeries V5.3
IY41983 - Cumulative maintenance #04 (fix pack CSD05) for WebSphere MQ for Solaris V5.3

IC34863 - JMS: Even though an application is correctly catching and
handling MQExceptions being thrown, the error message is
still output to System.err.
IC35400 - JMS: writeUTF cannot write messages whose length is
greater than 256 bytes.
IC35424 - Clustering: When a queue was shared in a cluster, but also
had a remote queue definition to it, an application was
able to put messages on it via the remote queue definition.
Puts to it via clustering still fail with
MQRC_CLUSTER_PUT_INHIBITED.
IC35527 - MQGET of last group msg returns MQRC_INCONSISTENT_UOW if
the previous get is backed out.
IC35731 - Publish/Subscribe SupportPac, MA0C: utility, cfgmqbrk
fails with an access violation and dialog box stating
The instructions at "0x77fcb397" referenced memory at
"0x00000000". The memory could not be "written"
IC35749 - Clustering: where the queue is set to BIND_NOT_FIXED and if
a remote queue is set up so that the remote queue manager
name is a queue manager alias shared in the cluster, the
queue manager name is not filled in on the cluster transmit
queue, causing the message to be put to the DLQ on the
queue manager which hosts the alias.
IC35731 - C++ application appears to execute fine, but MQDISC
returns 2058 or 2059
IC35976 - MSCS on Windows 2000 or Windows XP: In a cluster
environment one of many queue managers went down and others
receive multiple FDCs including MC053000, MC011056,
MC008047, MC008050 and MC064000. After this failure, there
were FDCs with probe MC039003 reporting error 1340
(ERROR_BAD_INHERITENCE_ACL) from the
CMQMRegSecurity::ChangeKeySecurity method.
IC36023 - System hangs and produces two FDC files, both containing
'long lock waits' errors with atxHardenStart and
attBrowseTable in call stack sections of the FDC files.
IC36037 - MSCS: hamvmqm is used to move a queue manager under MSCS
control, and it sets the LogPath and Prefix values in the
registry to point to the new location. However, on
stopping of the MQSeries Service, reboot, or potentially
when the AMQMSRVN process ends, the registry entries revert
back to the old local values. On starting a queue manager
which has just been moved it under MSCS control and this
problem has occurred, an FDC file containing probe ID
ZX000001 (lpiRC_LOG_LOCATION_INVALID) FDC can also point to
this problem.
IC36038 - Active X: Attempting to get a message from a queue when
using ActiveX bindings results in a 2043 exception. This
only occurs when the message length supplied is of type
LONG.
IC36185 - Unable to access MQAI MQBag COM class from the script
languages.
IC36285 - Running in Hong Kong SAR, RUNMQSC receives an FDC XC076001
xecX_E_CONV_NOT_SUP The FDC file shows a conversion between
1381 (simplified Chinese) to 950 (traditional Chinese). MQ
is using Simplified Chinese when it should use Traditional
Chinese.
IC36300 - The Windows Performance Monitor (perfmon) can show
dynamic queues and other queues which have been deleted
in MQ for a time after they were deleted.
IC36369 - Calling the MQXCNVC function from within an API crossing
exit. Connecting using a Java application in bindings
mode. The application attempted a connect using a shared
Hconn but failed with 2018 HCONN_ERROR.
IC36402 - Running a client application under IIS, and using a
security exit. The userid flowed is SYSTEM, which is what
the process starts running as and is incorrect.
IC36417 - Application hangs when error logs are full.
IC36434 - Locale of customer application is changed by client MQCONN.
If environment variable MQ_KEEP_LOCALE is set (to any
value) setlocale is not called.
IC36443 - AMQ7076 error was received from STRMQM after adding an XA
resource in WebSphere MQ Services by using the following
steps:
right click queue manager->properties->resources->new.
The users language was Simplified Chinese.
IC36600 - Application fails to get a message when specific groupid,
correlid and msgid are specified, together with a wait
interval and the message is put to the queue after the get
wait has started.
IC36623 - MTS/COM+: Two copies of an application are started at the
same time on an SMP machine. On the first GET or PUT under
syncpoint a trap occurs leaving one thread hung.
IC36629 - When using the services GUI after the Alert Monitor Node is
clicked, the properties of all nodes under the queue
manager node display the Alert Monitor properties.
IC36641 - ActiveX: Memory leak when an application calls ReadString
or ReadUTF repeatedly against the same MQMessage object.
IC36663 - JMS: NullPointerExceptions are created.
IC36741 - Error message 'The ordinal 301 could not be located in the
dynamic link library WLDAP32.DLL' is displayed during CSD04
installation. When the MQ Explorer or MQSeries services
process or other MQ commands are executed the same error
message is displayed and the process does not work. This
fix avoids having to install the ADSI client which was a
work round for the problem.
IC36743 - JMS: the last message in a group is not received when
creating a QueueReceiver with a selector of
JMS_IBM_Last_Msg_In_Group=TRUE.
IY31590 - The programs crtmqm, dltmqm and strmqm hang.
IY37632 - The sample makefile (xaswit.mak) for sybswit did not
work for Sybase V12.
IY39002 - strmqm may print this message even if setmqcap has been
run: "Purchased processor allowance not set (use
setmqcap)." if the DefaultPrefix value in the
AllQueueManagers stanza is changed in the mqs.ini file or
the Windows registry. The queue manager will continue to
start and run normally despite this message.
IY40450 - FDCs with probe id KN065001 out of kqiAuthorityChecks with
a minor error code of arcE_OBJECT_NOT_FOUND are created
when using their own OAM authorization service and have a
multi-threaded application.
IY40577 - Clustering: SUSPEND status becomes inconsistency between
REPOS queue managers and partial queue managers after
issuing SUSPEND QMGR CLUSTER(CLSL) command.
IY40853 - Queue object becomes damaged when queue contains more the
4GB of messages. Queue shrinks to about 2GB in size.
IY41671 - MQ hangs if a tuning parameter in qm.ini is set so agents
run single threaded.
IY42382 - SEGV if NULL queue manager name passed in client MQCONN.
IY42481 - Clustering: Workload balancing fails after a clustered
queue is put disabled.
IY42775 - An application connecting to MQ receives a segmentation
fault (SIGSEGV) in the function xllAllocSemNum. An FDC
with Probe Id XC130004 from the function
xehExceptionHandler is created. Near the bottom of the FDC
trace, the return code xecS_E_NEED_TO_BE_OWNER is visible.
IY43261 - Protocol FDC files with probe RM033006 from function
rriReceiveData in the amqrmppa process. are created as a
result of the channel pair being in disagreement over the
sequence number.
IY43310 - Queue manager crashes after sudden client termination
causes a semaphore leak.
IY43603 - The MsgId supplied in the PutMsgRecPtr->MsgId is ignored
when putting to a distribution list.
IY44040 - MQ fails to connect and an FDC file containing Probe Id
ZC002040 from component zcpAttachPipe with a Major
Errorcode of STOP is created if a tuning parameter in
qm.ini is set so agents run single threaded.
IY44316 - RQSTR channel fails to start.
IY44361 - Failure on restart with an FDC file containing Probe Id
AO106010 from component aocRecreateQueue.

locale.
IY44597 - An FDC file containing Probe Id XC015001 from
component xcsFreeQuickCell with Major Errorcode
xecS_E_BLOCK_ALREADY_FREE is created.
IY44669 - Clustering: Following a SUSPEND cluster then an endmqm in
quick succession, the amqrmppa process fails to end. Other
MQ processes end and the CPU use increased.
IY44673 - SNA channels hang or crash with SEGV reported from
cciLu62Receive or cciLu62Send when tracing channel
activity.
IY44740 - The data in QMgrName (MQCD), ConnectionName (MQCD),
ShortConnectionName (MQCD) fields is blank in the MQCD
given to a CHannel Auto-Definition exit (CHAD).
IY44885 - Memory leak when a process deletes a temp queue while
another process has it opened for browse.
IY45419 - Listener ends when it receives ECONNABORTED. Error message
shows and Errno of 130.
IY45566 - When running the PCF command InquireChannelStatus some of

IY45615 - Migration from MQ V5.2 to V5.3 migration causes some
channels to go indoubt with error message AMQ9592: Program
cannot resolve QMGR object. EXPLANATION:The attempt to
resolve object <objname> on queue manager <name> failed
with reason code 2195.
IY45940 - After a queue manager ends unexpectedly, it leaves a
message on the queue which is not accessible.
IY45989 - An MQ listener process terminates with an FDC file showing
a SIGBUS error.
IY46433 - Attempting to delete a RQSTR channel is rejected because
the channel is indoubt.
SE10945 - SEGV trap when reading a large Nonpersistent queue.
69042 - Channel name is missing from message AMQ9514. When
displayed by runmqsc.
70627 - strmqm fails with return code 71, and an FDC file
with probe ID AQ066010 created after MQ processes
are forcibly ended.
73359 - JMS: Creating connection consumer on a null topic gives
exception javax.jms.JMSException: MQJMS1077:
Connection/destination mismatch which is incorrect.
75058 - Sample programs samples/c/xatm/amqsxag0.c and
samples/c/xatm/amqsxas0.sqc now show use of backout count.
75526 - Return code from Prepare Wizard of 2245.
75611 - JMS: NullPointerExceptions are created.
75754 - JMS: When using multiple QueueReceivers receiving on same
queue, messages can be lost.
75869 - if the Extended Transaction Client is used and neither the
AXLIB or TPM parameter is supplied on the xa_open string
then an FDC is produced with probe id of RM497005.
75886 - JMS: When attempting to create a connection consumer,
get a null pointer exception:
java.lang.NullPointerException

....
at com.ibm.mq.jms.MQTopicConnection.createDurableConnectionConsumer(MQTopicConnection.java:511)
....
75958 - JMS: When migrating a subscription a null pointer exception
in QueueSubStore .close() is created.




K) Fix Pack CSD04 (PTF U200190)
----------------------------

This is the third fix pack for IBM WebSphere MQ for Windows
Version 5.3 from IBM. It is delivered via PTF U200190 for APAR
IC35383.

Number of APARs in fix pack = 37.

It contains fixes for all the problems listed below:

IC35383 - Cumulative maintenance #03 (fix pack CSD04) for WebSphere MQ for Windows V5.3
IY38742 - Cumulative maintenance #03 (fix pack CSD04) for WebSphere MQ for AIX V5.3
IY38743 - Cumulative maintenance #03 (fix pack CSD04) for WebSphere MQ for HP-UX V5.3
IY38747 - Cumulative maintenance #02 (fix pack CSD04) for WebSphere MQ for Linux for Intel V5.3
IY38762 - Cumulative maintenance #02 (fix pack CSD04) for WebSphere MQ for Linux for zSeries V5.3
IY38744 - Cumulative maintenance #03 (fix pack CSD04) for WebSphere MQ for Solaris V5.3

IC35483 - When importing a self-signed certificate created using
selfcert.exe (part of Microsoft Office), on Microsoft
Windows XP, using either the GUI or amqmcert, WebSphere
MQ V5.3 trapped.
IC35648 - Using WebSphere MQ for Windows V5.3 MMC Services GUI in
DCOM (remote) mode resulted in a trap.
IC35684 - API post-get exit returned an incorrect data length.
IC35711 - A damaged queue object occurred following a "clear ql"
for an unloaded queue. If on restart the queue file
was not recovered from the logs, then when it was
loaded an FDC with probe id AQ123002 from component
aqqLoadMsgHdr, followed by an FDC with probe id
AQ060020 from component aqhLoadMsgChain, occurred. The
reason code is arcE_OBJECT_DAMAGED.
IC35786 - An FDC with probe id AS023000 occurred in component
adiDeleteFile when using rcrmqobj with a damaged
object.
IY38042 - When processing a DUOW, the first thread waited up to
120 seconds for the second thread to end, and then if
it did not end in that amount of time, it terminated
the second thread. This has now been increased to a
300 second delay before terminating the second thread.
IY38428 - The MQSeries queue manager removes stale IPC resources
on startup. Each MQSeries IPC resource has an
associated file in the /var/mqm/qmgrs/QMGR/ area, and
the queue manager searches that area for old files, and
removes them and any associated IPC resource. But that
algorithm overlooked the fact that the resource may
have been removed and reused by another queue manager
due to an IPC key clash. So it may have removed
current IPC resources now owned by another queue
manager, not stale ones.
IY38476 - A COBOL client application compiled for use with
WebSphere MQ V5.3 failed with SIGSEGV.
IY38893 - An FDC with probe id CO000002 occurred after a TCP/IP
transmission problem which caused more bytes to be
transmitted than expected for a given message.
IY40050 - An MQSeries channel event message was not generated
after error message AMQ9545 (disconnect interval
expired).
IY40432 - Under certain circumstances, WebSphere MQ could write
an FDC showing probe id AQ066030 from component
aqhAllocateSpace. The major errorcode was STOP_ALL, so
this error would terminate the queue manager. The
function stack showed that this error happened while
loading a queue into memory as part of MQOPEN
processing.
IY40722 - When channels were started by runmqsc, the channel
processes became defunct when the channel stopped.
IY41184 - When importing a certificate into a Queue Manager
store, error message AMQ9630 ("an expired SSL
certificate was loaded") occurred when using either the
Explorer GUI or amqmcert.
IY42021 - The runmqchl process became defunct when a channel
stopped if that channel had been started by the command
server.
IY42894 - WebSphere MQ V5.3 was changed to handle SIGABRT
differently from the way that MQSeries V5.2 handled
SIGABRT, when abort() used to dump a core file and
abort the process. But in WebSphere MQ V5.3, this was
changed to create an FDC and end the process. After
reviewing this with Development, the following changes
will be made to the current behavior in WebSphere MQ
V5.3:
1. Do not handle SIGABRT received through an user
application. As a result of this change,
abort() called through an application results
in a core dump and no longer it generates an
FDC.
2. Do not handle SIGABRT when
MQS_ACTION_ON_EXCEPTION is set to ABORT or
ABORT_ALL.
IY43097 - Occasionally a failure with return code 2102
(MQRC_RESOURCE_PROBLEM) occurred when trying to connect
applications to WebSphere MQ V5.3. When a large number
of applications attempted to perform a get operation
with large buffer sizes, the shared memory set was
extended, but with incorrect permissions. This meant
that applications run under a user id which did not
have mqm as its primary group could not connect to this
extent, getting EACCESS from shmat. This was returned
as a resource problem.
IY43106 - An FDC with probe id XY242001 was produced from
component xcsGetpwnam. This FDC was introduced by APAR
IY36461. The intention of the APAR was to create the
FDC if the routine failed because the system had run
out of file descriptors. The result has been rather
different; any failure to find a userID also caused the
FDC to be created. Such a failure, that a userID does
not exist, is not an WebSphere MQ error so it would not
be correct to write such a message to the WebSphere MQ
error logs, so this FDC has been removed.
IY43215 - On Turbolinux 8, setmqcap, dspmqcap, crtmqm, strmqtrc
and endmqtrc all hung. They appeared to function
correctly but ps -ef showed two threads that did not
end. Trace showed that the asynchronous signal monitor
thread never returned from a sigwait. SIGWINCH was
correctly raised against it and diagnostics showed that
it was correctly blocked on that thread. The problem
was due to the default sigaction on Turbolinux being
different from other flavours of Linux. The correct
sigaction had to be set prior to the sigwait in the
asynchronous signal monitor.
IY43610 - A number of libraries, including the C++ bindings and
SNA libraries, were not shipped with fix pack CSD03.
The symptoms which may have been seen prior to
application of this interim fix included:
-> Segmentation violation in WebSphere MQ
-> Abnormal termination of WebSphere MQ applications
using the C++ interface
-> Diagnostics (e.g. FDCs) not being produced
-> Abnormal trace content
IY43940 - An object corruption problem occurred following the
reloading of a queue which was unloaded due to
inactivity. FDCs occurring as a result of this problem
included AQ060020 from component aqhLoadMsgChain and
AQ066000 from component aqqReadMsg.
IY43961 - A triggered Java application hung when instantiating a
new queue manager object.
IY44601 - Using runmqsc to display information about channels
resulted in an FDC showing probe id PC031012 from
component pcmInquireChannel. Trace history in the FDC
showed return code xecS_E_MEM_SET_NOT_FOUND repeated
several times over and error message AMQ9224
('unexpected token detected') also appeared in the
error logs reporting an unexpected token in the qm.ini
file.
IY44618 - WebSphere MQ V5.3 hung after executing endmqm -i whilst
the queue manager was quiescing.
IY44803 - Two problems were found during the final stages of
WebSphere Application Server V5.0.1 Enterprise Edition
testing:
a) Whilst running a Process Choreographer
application, an except was written to the
SystemOut logfile.
b) Whilst running a stress test of the
compensation function, core and thread dump
file were generated. No messages were logged
into SystemOut logfile but messages were
written to the SystemErr logfile.
IY45013 - WebSphere MQ V5.3 JMS hung due to build issues with
libmqjbnd05.so and libmqjbndF02.so.
IY45091 - If, in an HACMP cluster, a queue manager was failed
over to another machine which also hosted another queue
manager, then when the failed over queue manager was
started, it was not possible to start channels to that
instance of the queue manager. The channels failed
with error messages AMQ9502 and AMQ9547.
SA95740 - The queue manager terminated abnormally when a
checkpoint process encountered a ghost queue that it
could not find.
SA96031 - If a full repositories entry in a partial repositories
cache had the awaitsRepos flag on, then it would not be
selected as a possible full repository to which to
publish its cluster specific messages. AwaitsRepos can
get set if there has incorrectly been a manual cluster
sender defined from the full repository to the partial
repository. The change ensures that we correctly
publish messages to the full repository regardless of
the AwaitsRepos flag.
SA96071 - Following the fix for APAR IY27208, the calculation of
the oldest LSN is incorrect. In some cases the oldest
LSN calculation will include ghost queues that are no
longer required. In the vast majority of cases the
likely damage will be limited to reporting an
unnecessarily low media recovery LSN at restart.
However occasionally it is possible that this could
cause us to report too high a media recovery LSN which
could cause data integrity problems following a
restart.
SE09741 - Damage occurred to a queue file when a clear queue was
issued against a queue which had not yet been loaded.
When the queue file did finally get loaded (not
recovered from the logs), FDCs with probe ids AQ123002
from component aqqLoadMsgHdr and AQ060020 from
component aqhLoadMsgChain occurred.

71806 - Fixed IVTRun -ccsid option.
73240 - When attempting to use get with convert from legacy
applications, problems occurred on the messages
produced, such that nulls were left where there should
have been blank characters.
73772 - When reading messages in codepage 1051 some
applications could have failed with index array out of
bounds.



L) Fix Pack CSD03 (PTF U200187)
----------------------------

This is the second fix pack for IBM WebSphere MQ for Windows
Version 5.3 from IBM. It is delivered via PTF U200187 for APAR
IC34802.

Number of APARs in fix pack = 44.

It contains fixes for all the problems listed below:

IC34802 - Cumulative maintenance #02 (fix pack CSD03) for WebSphere MQ for Windows V5.3
IY36147 - Cumulative maintenance #02 (fix pack CSD03) for WebSphere MQ for AIX V5.3
IY36151 - Cumulative maintenance #02 (fix pack CSD03) for WebSphere MQ for HP-UX V5.3
IY36157 - Cumulative maintenance #01 (fix pack CSD03) for WebSphere MQ for Linux for Intel V5.3
IY36620 - Cumulative maintenance #01 (fix pack CSD03) for WebSphere MQ for Linux for zSeries V5.3
IY36149 - Cumulative maintenance #02 (fix pack CSD03) for WebSphere MQ for Solaris V5.3

IC34272 - Under some circumstances, the QName field in the MQWXP
(cluster workload exit parameter) structure was not set.
This field should be set so that cluster workload exits
can route messages properly.
IC34714 - After doing a browse MQGET, if the MsgId or CorrelId is
set, or the MatchOptions MQMO_MATCH_CORREL_ID or
MQMO_MATCH_MSG_ID are set, the next MQGET with
MQGMO_BROWSE_MSG_UNDER_CURSOR or MQGMO_MSG_UNDER_CURSOR
(ie. non-destructive or destructive get) does not
retrieve the browsed message.
IC34717 - Multiple problems occurred with large concentration of
channels into a single Queue Manager running on the
Windows 2000 platform.
IC34739 - Problems occurred with amqmcert on Windows NT and
problems occurred when viewing certificates in the GUI
on Windows NT.
IC34774 - Following an exception in MQDISC processing subsequent
WebSphere MQ functions (eg. MQDISC or MQCONN) hang.
IC34854 - A trap occurred when browsing a queue in the MMC
Explorer snapin.
IC34874 - An FDC was generated with probe id XY315147 on the
WebSphere MQ server during system shutdown because a
remote application was continuing to PUT messages to a
queue manager residing on the server machine. The FDC
was seen after a restart of the server machine.
IC34883 - An error occurred while opening the SUBSCRIBER queue
while performing a subscriber close.
IC34910 - An FDC with probe id XY051024 occurred from component
InitPrivateServices. This FDC is intended to
demonstrate that there are 2 copies of AMQXCS2.DLL in
the system, but in this case the 2 copies of the dll
reported had the same path - the difference in the 2
paths was that one was uppercase and the other was
lowercase.
IC34948 - Cluster sender channel did not start automatically.
IC34985 - If after defining a queue manager, a listener was
defined, deleted and recreated then at this point
nothing was written to the registry so a reboot lost
that listener. This also applied to any child service
(eg. channel initiators or trigger monitors).
IC35037 - Problem in the bindings code that prevented the MQPMR
from being updated once the messages had been sent
using a application java program that put a message to
a distribution list. When the program ran in bindings
mode, the message ids that were returned were null. If
the program was changed to run in client mode, the
message ids were returned correctly. In both scenarios,
the message ids were valid on the queues.
IC35040 - A JMS publish/subscribe subscriber application
failed with error message:
javax.jms.JMSException: MQJMS2002: failed to get
message from MQ queue with
the linked exception
com.ibm.mq.MQException: Completion Code 2, Reason
2003 (MQRC_BACKED_OUT)
IC35047 - The command dmpmqaut showed authorities that were valid
for a queue manager (ObjectType = qmgr) when displayed
for a queue (ObjectType = queue).
IC35050 - When using an RFH2 Header with MQMD.MsgFlags set to
MQMF_SEGMENTATION_ALLOWED with a message length that
was greater than the maximum message length, then an
error occurred with Reason Code 2195 (unexpected
error).
IC35116 - An MQCONN failed with return code 2059 and an FDC with
probe id XY441008 occurred in the Shared Memory server.
IC35136 - The error MQRC_BUFFER_ERROR was reported incorrectly
for an MQAI COM application (ie. a VB application using
the classes in the amqzaix COM library) that used the
'item' method to query the value of a string.
IC35272 - If a message larger than MAXMSGL was put to a cluster
queue with MD.MsgFlags set to MQMF_SEGMENTATION_ALLOWED
the message was not segmented on the
SYSTEM.CLUSTER.TRANSMIT.QUEUE. The result was that the
message was not gettable from the cluster xmitq and the
channel continually failed with
MQRC_TRUNCATED_MSG_FAILED returned from MQGET.
IC35369 - Error message AMQ8343 or any error message with a
higher error number gave the wrong text in German,
Brazilian-Portuguese and Traditional Chinese.
IC35395 - When reading the Service stanza, it was assumed that
SecurityPolicy was the last entry. This was not the
case if there was also a NameService stanza, in which
case the SecurityPolicy was set correctly when the line
was found, and reset to default when the line was not
found under the NameService stanza.
IY31882 - MQSeries queue open information could have been
corrupted by processes that opened the same queue at
the same time.
IY32730 - The component xcsExecProgram did not trace the path to
the failed executable to help determine the cause of an
'access denied' message being generated.
IY34135 - Improve trace information reported for the rcdmqimg
command to help determine which objects are preventing
media log advancement.
IY34300 - Queue manager failed to start and error message AMQ5525
was produced. The error message was accompanied by
FDCs with probe ids ZI095207 and ZF095010.
IY35557 - An application connected to WebSphere MQ, then at some
point all its threads disconnected. This caused
WebSphere MQ to uninitialise tracing for that process.
Later, multiple threads from that application connected
at the same time. WebSphere MQ needed to re-initialise
tracing for the process, but there was a small timing
window which allowed multiple threads into the
initialisation code, and that tripped the WebSphere MQ
consistency check and the resulting FDC with probe id
XY078004.
IY35756 - An error with reason code 2195 (unexpected error)
occurred from an xa_prepare in component
tmiPerformPrepare.
IY35870 - The CPI-C call cmrcv() failed with a SIGSEGV on HP-UX
V11.
IY36085 - If an MQI application running over an SVRCONN channel
stacked in MQGET with MQWI_UNLIMITED, endmqm -i hung up
and never stopped.
IY36461 - When the number of File Descriptors was running short
for a user, generating both informational FDCs and
error logs was not possible. If the errors were to be
logged in error logs, it would be necessary to open the
message catalog file and the error log file for which
there are insufficient File Descriptors. To avoid this
problem error logs will no longer will written in this
situation.
IY36853 - An FDC with probe ID ZF047010 occurred and an
xcsGetGrent call ended with 9 during a crtmqm command.
This resulted in the crtmqm command aborting but
leaving a partially running Queue Manager with no
default objects created.
IY37338 - An FDC with probe id AT048005 occurred in component
amqzlaa0 from routine atxCommit. The return code was
arcE_XAER_PROTO.
IY37545 - When WebSphere MQ encountered an error loading a module
or resolving a symbol name within a loaded module, it
queried the operating system for error text to help
resolve the problem. In some cases, this text may have
been lost or overlayed with new and possibly unrelated
error information.
IY37611 - An LDAP userid was truncated when used to bind to the
server for CRL processing.
IY37765 - The WebSphere MQ Using Java manual (SC34-6066-00)
refers to a Makefile for use with JTA/JDBC coordination
via WebSphere MQ base Java (see chapter 7). The
Makefile was omitted from WebSphere MQ for AIX V5.3 and
WebSphere for Sun Solaris V5.3.
IY38407 - Error messages AMQ6188 and AMQ7622 occurred when trying to
start the Queue Manager.
IY39991 - After a JMS application received a message from a
queue, it attempted to send that message to two other
queues. On the second put, the start of the message
data was found to be missing.
IY40211 - The listener process terminated abnormally, accompanied
by an FDC with a probe id of CO052000 and error message
AMQ9207.
SA95932 - A queue lock was not released before releasing a data
mutex and this resulted in a deadlock condition that
caused MQSeries to hang.

60225 - Provide support for the WebSphere MQ Extended
Transactional Clients.
66682 - MQS_ACTION_ON_EXCEPTION was ineffective for XA
exceptions.
67200 - An FDC with probe id XY078004 occurred from component
xtrReleaseTraceLock.
67470m - Unicode Topic names are now supported in WebSphere MQ
JMS.
70015 - SSL channels did not work on Windows NT.
70180 - Windows XP (SP0) system supplied certificate resulted
in a channel failure as a result of a user error.
70294 - QREMOTE with RNAME=QREMOTE name got stuck on the XMITQ.
70527 - REFRESH CLUSTER command did not accept "*" as a
parameter.
70594 - Client connection failed after the SSL channel failed
to start because the assigned certificate had no
private key.
70595 - Client did not check the date validity of an SSL
certificate.
70684 - Logfilepages could not be set to more than 9999.
70703 - If an application was terminated while it was
allocating or freeing a memory block in the shared
memory heap, then the queue manager could have been
halted.
70804 - Platform differences between the SSL state attribute
caused certificate search failures.
70872 - An FDC with probe id ZF154006 occurred in component
wasSecServiceInit from program amqzlaa0.
71189 - After a queue with size in excess of 2GB was filled
with persistent messages, the queue manager was stopped
and restarted. When the application that was putting
messages to this queue was restarted, at the MQOPEN the
queue was truncated to 2GB in size and the MQOPEN
failed with reason code 2101 (MQRC_OBJECT_DAMAGED).
71218 - Failed to find mqm as secondary group.
71230 - Problems occurred with the cluster creation GUI.
71510 - Memory leaks occurred in the MSCS resource monitor
process.
71569 - If certain criteria occurred, inquire queue status did
not always return a correct queue depth.
72076.1 - FDCs and exceptions from zcpDetachPipe following Agent
Dead FDCs.
72217 - Resolves issues where Channel Terminated messages were
being issued when a heavily stressed system has
thousands of channels starting and stopping
simultaneously.
72223 - 100% CPU loop in amqrrmfa in a rare timing condition
when the registration chain is updated by two processes
simultaneously.
72307 - Problem where amqrmppa channel pooling processes
were not tracked correctly, resulting in a significant
number being launched unnecessarily over time on a
system where thousands of channels start and stop
frequently.
72500 - Resolves problems with wrapping trace including hang
during wrapping point and incorrect filenames on the
Windows platform only.
72562 - An FDC with probe id RM220005 occurred in component
rrmRepository from program amqrrmfa.

61153 - JMSAdmin - Test for InitialContextFactory on classpath.
A common problem has been the inability of Java to find
the InitialContextFactory class, as specified in the
INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY property, in the classpath.
The effect of the fix for this defect is to report
"Class specified by INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY not found
in CLASSPATH".
64266 - Improve JMSAdmin error reporting JMSAdmin -v :
specifying the -v option for JMSAdmin will enable
verbose output on commands including exception
reporting.
67166 - NoClassDefFoundException without jta.jar. MQ base Java
required jta.jar on the CLASSPATH at runtime, for
example running the MQIVP without jta.jar available
fails with a NoClassDefFoundException on XAException.
68116 - Unable to change TopicConnectionFactory TRANSPORT
property DIRECT to BIND value. Switching a Topic
Connection Factory or Queue Connection Factories
TRANSPORT value in JMSAdmin can cause the PORT value to
change :
From To PORT value
BIND CLIENT Set to 1414 (the default value)
BIND DIRECT Set to 1506 (the default value)
CLIENT DIRECT Unchanged (remains at the default
value for CLIENT transport 1414, or
whatever the user has set)
CLIENT BIND The Port Property will be removed
as not valid with transport BIND
DIRECT CLIENT Unchanged (remains at the default
value for DIRECT transport 1506, or
whatever the user has set)
DIRECT BIND The Port Property will be removed
as not valid with transport BIND
68275 - Minor performance improvement to getMessage. Reduces
the amount of browsing needed for message selection
over the MQI.
68382 - Inconsistent identified producer behavior. An
identified producer (i.e. one tied to a specific
destination at creation time) in a Point-to-Point model
is unable to send to a specified queue, using
QueueSender.send(queue, message). In this situation, a
JMSException is thrown, stating that such an attempt is
an invalid operation for an identified producer.
However when using the Publish/Subscribe model, using a
publisher which has been tied to a topic at creation
time, succeeds. This is has been corrected with
reference to the JMS 1.0.2b Javadoc for QueueSender and
TopicPublisher, where in both cases it should actually
throw java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException.
68422 - Improve SessionAsyncHelper error handling.
68741 - Transactions not working with selectors. Messages are
being got outside syncpoint for transacted and XA
sessions when the QueueReceiver is using a message
selector. As a result, rolling back the transaction
does not backout the message.
68762 - iSeries Storage leak on MQGET - NO_MSG_AVAILABLE. MQGET
does not ReleaseByteArrayElements when MQ returns
MQRC_NO_MSG_AVAILABLE. This causes the heap space to be
consumed and threads to drop when 4MB is used.
68775 - Linux native library not statically link with
/lib/libgcc_s.so.1. Linux native library was built with
a dependency on /lib/libgcc_s.so.1 rather than
statically linked. This may cause problems on systems
where this library is not available.
68780 - Rationalize syncpoint usage on ConnectionConsumer
receive. When using ConnectionConsumer, non-persistent
messages are now received out of syncpoint if the
Session is non-transacted and AUTO_ACKNOWLEDGE or
DUPS_OK_ACKNOWLEDGE. This brings ConnectionConsumer
into line with the behavior of asynchronous delivery.
This behavior can be altered through the
SyncpointAllGets property of the ConnectionFactory
(from JMSAdmin, this is the SPAG property). If this
property is set to true (ie. SPAG(YES)) all receives
are performed in syncpoint. Additionally,
ConnectionConsumer no longer performs an unnecessary
backout at the end of receipt of a batch messages, if
the gets were committed.
68905 - get() fails with maxmsgsize of zero. In the 'base' MQ
classes for Java API, it was not possible to call
MQQueue.get() specifying a zero-length buffer. This is
now fixed; the call will complete successfully if the
message received has no body or with an appropriate
MQRC_TRUNCATED_MSG response if the message has any body
data.
68938 - Fail if Quiesce values for ConnectionFactory and
Destination properties cause unexpected returns. The
exact behavior of the Fail If Quiesce property when a
queue manager is quiescing was significantly dependent
upon the timing of the calls (for example
sending/publishing, and creating a receiver/subscriber)
in relation to the closing of the queue manager. Under
certain conditions with the ConnectionFactory property
set to YES and Destination property set to NO, a
JMSException would be thrown when the operation would
be expected to succeed. This JMSException contained a
linked MQException with error codes of 2161
(MQRC_Q_MGR_QUIESCING) or 2033 (MQRC_NO_MSG_AVAILABLE).
This behavior has now been corrected in all feasible
scenarios, however a 2033 may still occur if the
pub/sub broker has been stopped before it processed the
publish operation.
69623 - Incorrect message lookup in BrokerSubEng. Broker
response is set to MQPS_COMP_CODE rather than
MQPS_REASON_TEXT.
70052 - NullPointerException from durable subscribe and
unsubscribe. If the queue manager is quiescing while
subscribing to durable subscription now fails with
NoBrokerResponseException, and the durable unsubscribe
fails with another NoBrokerResponseException, with
linked MQRC 2033.
70365 - JMS postcard "nickname" can be truncated. Users may
previously have entered a nickname of any length in the
graphical user interface, which was silently truncated
to 18 characters. It is now impossible to enter a
nickname longer than the allowed length of 18
characters.
70378 - Unable to parse RFH2 containing <../> empty element
form. When reading a message containing a <usr> folder
element of the form <name/>, the parse failed. Such
messages were not generated by JMS, but could be
created by other applications (eg. MQ Integrator,
third-party apps). This is now fixed.
70409 - Bad exception if no CertStore class available. An SSL
client application which checks against CRLs on a
non-1.4 JVM without the CertStore class, then the JVM
will throw a ClassDefNotFound exception rather than an
MQException.
70413 - get-wait poorly handled in Subscriber. The wait
timeout is not reduced in MQTopicSubscriber.getMessage
when processing non-matching msgs. This can result in a
lock-in where getMessage will never return because a
stream of non-matching msgs are arriving.
70463 - Exception while closing the sub with SUBSTORE(MIGRATE).
NullPointerException while closing a durable
subscription using SUBSTORE(MIGRATE), when the
subscription has previously been created using
SUBSTORE(QUEUE); i.e. when the subscription had been
migrated during createDurableSubscription(). Later uses
of the durable subscription were unaffected.
70694 - JMS WebSphere Sample 3 improved compatibility. The JMS
WebSphere Sample3 (jmsSample3.jar) is now compatible
with the WAS 4.0 and WAS 5.0 ejbdeploy and assembly
tools.
70862 - Messages not cleared when updating durable
subscription. Old messages not cleared when updating
durable subscription while using
BrokerSubscriptionEngine.
70969: BrokerSubscriptionEngine cannot open
durableSubscription on non-shared queue
71007 - Open handles left against durable subscriber queue.
Queue handles could be left open against the subscriber
queue following a create and close of a durable
subscription using SUBSTORE(QUEUE).
71036 - Timestamp based selector fails. When using
MessageSelection=BROKER, selectors which use
JMSDeliveryMode, JMSPriority, JMSTimestamp or
JMSXGroupSeq, will result in no message being delivered
even when the selector should evaluate to true.
71038 - Null pointer exception when using setString(null) on
MapMessage with trace enabled
71069 - PSIVT fails with EBCDIC broker (MQSSR problem). The
PSIVT fails when using an EBCDIC pub/sub broker with
BVER(V1). IVT fails reporting a bad message received
with "JMS_IBM_Format:MQSSR" instead of "MQSTR".
71084 - Get matching by correlid does not work for Linux
bindings. Attempting to get a message, by specifying a
correlation ID fails when using the Linux bindings. The
symptom of the failure is that the get operation
succeeds but does not perform the matching and instead
returns the first message found.
71102 - StringIndexOutOfBoundsException and mangled NLS
messages. Under heavy load, MQException objects could
contain mangled messages; occasionally this would
result in StringIndexOutOfBoundsExceptions.
71131 - MQTopic incomplete equals and hashcode methods. Not
all of the parameters on MQTopic were included in the
hashcode and equals methods.
71137 - ConnectionConsumer Performance enhancements.
71145 - SUBSTORE(QUEUE) cleanup, BVER(V2), ignores wildcards
subscribers. SUBSTORE(QUEUE)-style cleanup ignores
BVER(V2) subscribers which use wildcards in the topic
name.
71159 - Ignore MsgSelection for IP Transport. When using
Transport=DIRECT the setting of the MsgSelection
parameter on the TopicConnectionFactory should be
ignored as message selection is always done by the
Broker in this case. Previously, attempting to set
MessageSelection=BROKER when Transport=DIRECT caused an
exception to be thrown erroneously 71166: Add new error
message for UserName too long UserNames longer than 12
characters are not supported when using
Transport=CLIENT or BIND.
71167 - Pacing of publish() requests to Broker. Erroneous 'No
Broker Response" exceptions reported when publishing
using multiple Publishers on one Session with a heavily
loaded Broker.
71233 - Performance: improve MQMessage.read* methods. When
reading many small data elements from an MQMessage, the
majority of the overhead is in calls to setMode() and
trace statements that are not dependent on a
conditional test 'if (Trace.isOn)'. A tidyup of the
trace and changing the calls to setMode() to execute
conditionally solves the problem.
71318 - Thread leak with broken connections. The thread
created for a bindings connection is normally removed
during the disconnect call. If the disconnect fails the
thread is not removed, and for customers writing their
own fail-over/reconnect logic this causes a build up of
unwanted threads.
71405 - Durable sub fails with multiple Queue approach.
Recreating durable subscription after JVM Crash throws
javax.jms.JMSException: MQJMS3022 when multiple Queue
Approach is used.
71433 - Cannot restart queue manager, ConnectionConsumer
holding connections. The JMS code did not properly
disconnect non-XA Sessions created from an XAConnection
object. This caused problems from ConnectionConsumer,
which may have given rise to just this problem. The
problems related to restarting the queue manager after
a failure; without being properly disconnected the
queue manager could not restart until the WebSphere
Application Server process was stopped.
71439 - Cannot send deserialized messages. If a message object
gets serialized and later deserialized, attempting to
send the deserialized version gives an 'internal error'
JMS Exception.
71568 - Missing file /java/lib/jdbc/Makefile.jdbc. Used for
building switch file jdbcxxx had been omitted from the
AIX and Solaris installation packages. This is now
fixed.
71696 - TemporaryTopic error conditions should throw
InvalidDestination. A JMSException is thrown in the
following circumstances:
1. TemporaryTopic used in createSubscriber against
the wrong Connection
2. Deleted TemporaryTopic used in createSubscriber
3. TemporaryTopic used with
createDurableSubscription behavior changed to
throw InvalidDestinationException as required by
the JMS specification.


M) Fix Pack CSD01 (PTF U200181)
----------------------------

This is the first fix pack for IBM WebSphere MQ for Windows
Version 5.3 from IBM. It is delivered via PTF U200181 for APAR
IY32621.

Number of APARs in fix pack = 52.

It contains fixes for all the problems listed below:

IY32621 - Cumulative maintenance #01 (fix pack CSD01) for WebSphere MQ for Windows V5.3
IY32727 - Cumulative maintenance #01 (fix pack CSD01) for WebSphere MQ for AIX V5.3
IY32728 - Cumulative maintenance #01 (fix pack CSD01) for WebSphere MQ for HP-UX V5.3
IY32729 - Cumulative maintenance #01 (fix pack CSD01) for WebSphere MQ for Solaris V5.3

IC33707 - Service startup may not have waited for all queue
managers to start. The process is estimated to start
in 45 seconds but when there are many queue managers,
this time may be considerably longer. But the 45
second estimate was not changed and this resulted in
some of the queue managers being stopped and error
message AMQ7880 was written to the log.
IC33838 - When using the just in time activation of objects
within COM+, the application program worked for a while
but then hung because an MQGet was being executed
before the commit of the previous transaction had been
issued. The point at which it hung was the getcontext
within the MQGet.
IC34042 - When a CLUSSDR channel to a full repository went
inactive due to a DISCINT expiring and was then stopped
by using the Stop Channel command) then if a cluster
queue was defined on the queue manager, the channel to
the full repository (which was in STOPPED state) went
into RUNNING state automatically.
IC34123 - The queue manager restarted automatically when it was
stopped manually through the services panel.
IC34193 - An access violation occurred in the amqzlaa0 process
when different security was setup on the receiver
channel. An FDC with probeid XC130031 from component
xehExceptionHandler.
IC34208 - The AlternateUserId was not being used to open a queue
manager object when calling Connect from an ActiveX/COM
application.
IC34235 - When using remote administration from machine A, signed
on with a local id on that machine, to another machine
B on which the same userid existed but had limited
authority (not in mqm group), then an attempt to view the
queue manager properties resulted in a trap in the
command server, which when running as a service appeared
to be hung.
IC34362 - Using a revoked certificate when CRL settings were
defined so that verification via an LDAP server should
occur, the channel started successfully whereas it
should have failed because the certificate was
revoked.
IC34382 - Multiple copies of listener and trigger monitor
occurred following a reboot of the machine, where the
queue manager start up process included the trigger
monitor, listener and channel initiator.
IC34383 - Error message AMQ4082 "Unexpected WebSphere MQ error
(3015)" occurred when the "apply on channels" option
was chosen on a V5.3 MMC Explorer connected to a V5.2
queue manager.
IC34402 - Using SSLPEER to check one or more attributes (RDNs) in
a DN obtained from a certificate failed when an exact
match was required on what turned out to be the last
RDN in the DN, but it worked if wildcard was specified
at the end of the full RDN.
IC34442 - When using the *name for a Queue manager name, ActiveX
did not return the actual queue manager name to which
the user was connected.
IC34551 - If the JMS client retrieved a message greater in size
than 2K then the message data was retrieved incorrectly
if the message data was not accessed prior to another
MQGET occurring.
IC34583 - MQPMR fields were not filled in during an MQPUT1 call
on MQSeries V5.2 or an MQPUT call on WebSphere MQ V5.3.
IC34586 - A handle leak occurred on each MQCONN/MQDISC when they
were done in a separate thread.
IC34855 - The length of a channel name insert was incorrect in
some error messages.
IC35242 - Error message AMQ5615 occurred when trying to issue
CRTMQM commands after installing fix pack CSD05 on
MQSeries for Windows NT and Windows 2000 V5.2.1.
IY31724 - When an application calls MQBACK at the end of a
two-phase unit of work, MQSeries must invoke the xa_end
and xa_rollback methods of all associated resource
managers. If a resource manager returned one of the
XA_RB* (ie. rollback) return codes to xa_end, it was
allowed to return XAER_NOTA to xa_rollback. Because
this option was not reflected in the XA state tables,
WebSphere MQ would return error MQRC_UNEXPECTED_ERROR
(return code 2195) from MQBACK and write an FDC with
probe id TM05000 from component tmiRollbackTransaction
with major error code trcE_UNEXPECTED_RM_ERROR.
IY31891 - Additional trace points have been added for WebSphere
MQ for AIX V5.3 so that any errno value set by a call
to system() can be displayed in the trace.
IY32787 - On a newly created V5.3 queue manager, a PCF Inquire
Channel command to inquire the status of all Svrconn
channels returned incorrect values for the
SSLCipherSpec key (MQCACH_SSL_CIPHER_SPEC).
IY32885 - The Solaris catgets problem (problem id 417950)
resulted in WebSphere MQ failing to print an error
message from the message catalogue in the normal
fashion when the print string in the catalogue is badly
formatted. Instead of the required message, error
message AMQ8101 was received when running RUNMQSC.
IY32890 - After migrating from MQSeries V5.2 to WebSphere MQ
V5.3, the V5.2 queue manager would not restart
successfully. An FDC with probe id AQ066030 from
component aqhAllocateSpace was produced.
IY32925 - When WebSphere MQ ran out of file descriptors, an FDC
was created with probe id XY017001 from component
xufOpenIniRead. However, it did not report the error
number properly. It was likely to be reported as 0.
IY33049 - The listener in WebSphere MQ V5.3 did not use the
SO_REUSEADDR socket option.
IY33171 - After applying the fix for APAR IY32890 and migrating
from MQSeries V5.2 to WebSphere MQ V5.3, the V5.2 queue
manager would restart successfully but a warning FDC
with probe id AQ065010 from component aqhLocateSpace
was produced.
IY33246 - An FDC with probe id XC287002 from component
xstAllocateMemBlock with minor error code
SEM_OWNER_DIED occurred when an application died while
holding a lock to the queue manager.
IY33346 - A problem occurred in component zlaMain where the
application dead count was not reset properly when a
connection was reused. This caused frequent FDCs to be
generated with probe id ZL000028 out of component
zlaMain.
IY33612 - Uninitialised shared memory data caused a WebSphere MQ
agent thread to believe that it has been told that the
queue manager was stopping. This caused the thread to
terminate the connection with the application. In order
for the uninitialised data to cause this, it had to
have exactly the right 32-bit value.
IY33836 - After migrating from MQSeries V5.1 to WebSphere MQ
V5.3, the V5.1 queue manager failed to start, producing
FDCs with probe id ZD007030 from component zdmMQCONN
and a Major Error code MQRC_ENVIRONMENT_ERROR. This
also produced error message AMQ6090 (WebSphere MQ was
unable to display an error message 7DC).
IY33837 - After migrating from MQSeries V5.1 to WebSphere MQ
V5.3, the V5.1 queue manager would not restart. Error
message AMQ6118 occurred and an FDC with probe id
HL081015 (AIX) or HL081916 (other platforms) from
component mqlpgolf in program amqzxma0 was produced.
IY33871 - While WebSphere MQ was waiting for work to complete, an
endmqm -i was issued. The endmqm process in turn
invoked the shutdown function zxcForceStopLQM which
then tried to shutdown the OAM but failed with error
code MQRC_CONNECTION_BROKEN (return code 000007D9)
because the OAM had already been stopped.
Unfortunately, the function zxcForceStopLQM treated
this as a bad return code and skipped the shutdown
procedure.
IY34165 - Messages were being got outside syncpoint for
transacted and XA sessions when the QueueReceiver was
using a message selector. As a result, rolling back
the transaction did not backout the message.
IY34432 - The expiry time on some messages was reduced by the
time that has elapsed since the messages were first
put. This occurred when rcdmqimg was executed or the
queue manager was stopped and restarted. This resulted
in some messages being deleted unexpectedly.
IY34454 - The commands setmqaut and dspmqaut incorrectly failed
with error message AMQ7085 (Type Q not found).
IY34652 - The listener failed after the number of file
descriptors had exceeded the limit of 252.
IY34717 - Ping for non-existent channel caused the command server
to SEGV.
IY34818 - If the asynchronous signal monitor was attempting to
initialize common services in order to create an FDC
while main thread was in the process of bringing common
services down, then this resulted in a cascade of locks
being backed up which then resulted in a hang
condition.
IY34825 - An FDC with probe id XC130003 occurred in component
xehExceptionHandler from program runmqchl_nd.
IY34865 - When a JMS application issued QUEUEBROWSER.CLOSE(), the
queue handle was not being released.
IY36465 - AMQRMPPA processes were left running after endmqm had
finished processing.
IY36487 - When an exception handler was set for SIGABRT, the saved
signal handler for SIGSEGV was overwritten. If the
handlers were not identical then SIGSEGV was not
percolated correctly.
IY37431 - If there was only one cluster queue and it was set to
be put disabled, then the expected return code 2268
(MQRC_PUT_INHIBITED) was not returned when putting from
a remote queue manager with bind-not-fixed specified.
However the message was "put" successfully and ended up
on the local SYSTEM.CLUSTER.TRANSMISSION.QUEUE.
PQ65576 - The repository manager on a Solaris or HP-UX queue
manager running in a cluster containing WebSphere MQ
V5.3 queue managers failed. When the queue manager was
restarted, it failed again. The repository manager
failed due to a badly formatted message on the
SYSTEM.CLUSTER.COMMAND.QUEUE. On queue manager restart
the repository manager tried to process this message
again, hence the repeated failure.
PQ65725 - On migration from an older release of MQSeries where
clustering was used, on channel initiator startup the
repository manager terminated abnormally due to an
unusually formatted message segment on the
SYSTEM.CLUSTER.REPOSITORY.QUEUE. The abend would also
be seen on channel initiator restart as the message
would be re-processed.
PQ66006 - Partial repository queue managers no longer
acknowledged all instances of a cluster queue some time
after a REFRESH (or ALTER QMGR to change the clusters
to which queue manager was the full repository) was
carried out on a full repository queue manager.
SA95280 - Following an MQPUT, with the put message option
MQPMO_NEW_MSG_ID specified, that used distribution
lists, then the Msgid field of the MQPMR structure was
expected to be populated with a unique message
identifier but it was not.
SA95694 - When putting a message to a distribution list and a
unique message identifier was specified, the specified
unique message identifier was ignored and a queue
manager generated message identifier was given to the
message.
SA95741 - While ENDMQM processing was being performed, all MQCONN
attempts, other than the first MQCONN processed,
resulted in FDCs with probe id XC307070 with major
return code xecL_W_LONG_LOCK_WAIT. This was a
significant problem if the ENDMQM processing for an
installation took a long to complete.

67364 - Provide full command-line support in the IBM Global
Security product (GSKit).
68457 - AES CipherSpecs are now supported on HP-UX.
