Has anybody ever tried using Websphere MQ-client in (native) Visual Cobol programs ?
We are migrating from HP-UX (B.11.31 ia64) with Server Express 5.1 WP4 and Websphere MQ-client 220.127.116.11 to RHEL 6.6 (x86_64) with Visual Cobol 2.2 Update2 and Websphere MQ-client 18.104.22.168.
Programs that run fine on HP-UX can get compiled OK on RHEL, but get a SIGSEGV (‘114 Attempt to access item beyond bounds of memory (Signal 11)’) at run-time.
According to IBM 'system requirements' for Websphere MQ-client(s) the only MicroFocus supported Cobol-products are ServerExpress 4.0, 5.0 or 5.1.
Even the most recent Websphere MQ-Clients (8.0) mention ONLY Server Express, there is nowhere any support for Visual Cobol mentioned.
This might be (technically) a pure IBM-problem, but does this mean we have to stick to Server Express if we want to use MQ-calls in our Cobol-programs ?
We have opened a service request with IBM for this as well, but it seems strange we would be the first facing this issue ..
