That's something I didn't know. Bit of a blow to those of us producing PCF messages with C & C++, not to mention all the non-Java monitoring tools that rely on PCF messages for discovery & data gathering......

Location: US: west coast, almost. Otherwise, enroute.

PCF structures are provided for C, COBOL, PL/I, S/390 assembler, Visual Basic.

This from the PCF manual - which actually has references to .NET.

Yes, its true. One of my friend was getting the same issue. He raised a PMR and got response from IBM, stating that, there is no support available for using PCF in WebSphere MQ classes for .net.

But those of us using C or C++ are still ok? Phew!

Any chance of posting the PMR number for the benefit of other .NET sufferers? The more people who request this be fixed / enhanced / changed the sooner IBM will act.

I asked my friend, he works as a contractor for his client. The MQ architect from his client company had raised a PMR. He said he will try to get the PMR number from him.

Will post it here once I get it from him.
Thank you.

There is not much point posting a PMR number - they are not published to the internet so cannot be found in a search.

If you need this, talk with your IBM sales team, tell them the business reasons you need it.

Yes, even I'm facing a similar issue and found out where exactly the issue is occuring.

In amqmdnet.dll -> In the class PCFParameter and in the Method NextParameter. Below is the code where the issue is occuring.

Code:


public static PCFParameter NextParameter(MQMessage message)
{
    int num = message.ReadInt4();
    message.DataOffset -= 4;
    switch (num)
    {
        case 3:
            return new MQCFIN(message);

        case 4:
            return new MQCFST(message);

        case 5:
            return new MQCFIL(message);

        case 6:
            return new MQCFSL(message);
    }
    throw new Exception("Unknown type");
}



when this switch case tries to matches 'num', num will have a value of 9 but cases are provided only 3,4,5 and 6. Also this happens only for subscriptions and not for any other MQ object.

I've raised a request with IBM and waitng for response.

Thanks,
Vinay

IBM response

Quote:

Thank you for submitting an MQSeries Requirement.

We have reviewed your requirement and have the following
response:

Recognised- IBM agrees with the request and a solution appears to be a
desirable
objective. A solution, however, may not presently appear feasible or
implementable. No IBM commitment is made or implied as to the
eventual delivery of an acceptable solution.

Thank you for raising this requirement. Currently PCF interface in
WebSphere MQ .NET Client is undocumented and not supported. Hence we are
recognising the need to document and support the PCF interface. But it
should be noted that this "recognise" is not for the one fix our customer
requires but is for the whole of PCF support in WebSphere MQ .NET Clients.

Another attempt could probably be made in the service stream to analyse and
see if it can be fixed under an APAR.

Tried with MQ 7.1 amqmdnet.dll now.
Same issue. 'Unknown Type' (MQCFBS) not handled.

Time to add this information to your PMR and / or your enhancement request.

Or the new RFE thing.
