Truncation while getting message from MQ series

Postby jishamary » Fri Jan 08, 2010 1:33 pm

Hi,

I have a queue which will be feeding data to 2 applications. One application wants to get a new field data also now while the other application doesn't need this field. We are planning to add the field at the end of the copybook so that the field will be truncated for the second application. Will this approach work. What excatly is stored in MQGMO-ACCEPT-TRUNCATED-MSG variable. You have any reference material for the MQ variable details.
Please suggest.

Thanks In Advance,
Jisha

Hello,

Possibly, someone who "does MQ" will see this topic and reply.

Will this approach work.
Hopefully, you have run some experiments by now. . .

Peresonally, i'd make a new copybook for the new requirement rather than merely being lazy and leaving something confusing for others to deal with. . . fwiw.

This has nothing to do with mq but rather with creating things that are more maintainable.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Hi,
Thanks for the reply. The situation is like another application is receiving the data and they don't want to make any modifications at their end. So we have thought of this data truncation possibilty.

Thanks,

Hello,

Peresonally, i make sure one or the other was changed to be consistent. I'm sure "they" didn't want the new format :)

If there are to be 2 formats, i'd suggest 2 copybooks and probably 2 different queues.

Trying to "sneak around" things like this causes problems later more often than not.

fwiw. . .
Hope this helps,

Thanks for the reply. We are trying to include new copybooks for the new structure now.

Thanks,
