A JMS application produces messages with a CCSID of 1208 - this appears to be the CCSID for Unicode (UTF-. Msg format is MQSTR.

Anyone know whether all the MQSeries platforms will successfully convert this CCSID to their local character set, specifically will a CICS OS/390 application cope with it OK?

See Appendix H of the MQSeries Application Programmers Reference (SC33-1673-0 ...

Under OS/390 conversion support, CCSID 1208 is listed as being able to convert to/from the following additional code pages:

Is that a yes or a no?

Well I tried writing a little OS/390 REXX to read a JMS produced message with a CCSID of 1208 and I received a return code from the MQGET (CONVERT) of 2111.

2111 = Source CCSID error

So looks like it is not supported on the release of MQSeries OS/390 that I have (release 1.2).

The gut feel answer is yes it should work. Now be careful ... sending a TEXT message is all that should be translated by default. Check that the message that is about to be got from the MQ/390 queue is of format "MQSTR". I have a suspicion that you may find that the message is of type "MQRFH" or "MQRFH2". This would be extra headers injected by JMS into the message.

If you look at the queue definition (in JMS using JMSAdmin) you have the opportunity to say that the destination (JMS Speak) can be flagged as a non-JMS destination. In this case, the message actually transmitted to OS/390 will NOT have an MQRFH2 header and hence will be able to be translated just fine.

No it is MQSTR - we used PQEDIT to take a look at the message.

CCSID 1208 is supported on MQ 5.2 for OS/390 which we might have installed in about a year's time on our IBM managed mainframe service.

Until then we will have to make the Java application use ASCII messages.
