  1. Where to find updates for java classes?

    Hello,

    We run MQ V5.3 on iseries to connect to SAP XI on Sunsolaris oracle. To be able to connect we have deployed the following java classes on the SAP side:

    com.ibm.mq.jar
    com.ibm.mqbind.jar
    com.ibm.mqjms.jar
    connector.jar

    How do we know if there are updated versions around and more importantly where can we find them. I've found supportpac MA88 but that seems to be for MQ 5.2 and for 5.3 refers to the Using Java guide that says that the most recent files are always installed at installation time.

    But installation is longer than a year ago, and at SAP side we only have those jar files deployed and nothing else. So where do we find the updated jar files for sun solaris?

    Thanks
    tom

    Tom,

    If you install CSD 12 for iSeries for your v5.3 setup, you should have
    updated Java classes.

    Hi Saket,

    Thank you for your answer.
    I've downloaded and applied the most recent fixpack for MQ level 10. Where do I now find these jars? And can they be deployed on any client platform no matter what OS/DB combination?


    Regards
    Tom

    Tom,

    I would expect the updated JARs to be in the usual place, for example,
    on Windows, this is \Java\lib. I don't know what the
    default install location is on iSeries and whether you customised this
    value during your install, this is something you'll have to find out.

    Regards,
    Saket

  5. Re: Where to find updates for java classes?

    Thanks again,

    the reason I could not find them was because the MQ java client was not installed on the iseries...
    This has now been remedied with MA45, now i have a java/lib directory with the jar files I need. All the jar files were from october 2002 though.

    So additionally I reran the CSD12 patch to update the new java/lib directory with newer versions only to find out that the jar files were not changed by this update.

    This could mean that the jar files have never been updated since then for MQ V5.3. Could this be the case you think?

    Thanks and regards
    Tom

    Tom,

    This is surprising. Did you get a chance to see:

  7. Re: Where to find updates for java classes?

    Hello Saket,

    It was my mistake, the pack was loaded but not applied, now it is applied and the updated jars are there.
    Thank you very much for your help.

    One other beginners question I think but vital to know. If I have to connect from sunsolaris to MQ server on iseries, do I need to deploy the jars from the sunsolaris client on sun or those from the iseries client. Based on my experiences from the last few days i would say the iseries jars would have to be deployed on sunsolaris because it connects to an iseries MQ but i am not entirely sure.

    The situation now in any case is that the sunsolaris jars are deployed on sun and they work up to a point.

    Thanks
    Tom

  8. Re: Where to find updates for java classes?

    I'm not sure if I follow your argument and the question.

    However, I would like to point out that Java bytecodes (in JAR files aka
    Java Archvive files) are platform independent, as the runtime technology,
    the Java Virtual Machine, takes care of platform specifics. So, I wouldn't
    expect you to need to copy JARs from one system to another. I would be nice
    if the JARs on all systems were at lastest levels.

    You may find reading up on encoding and character sets in the MQ books
    useful, when doing cross platform messaging.
