Tux 6.5 - WinNT - NetExpress Cobol 3.0 - Building app. w/ 3rd-party DLL (Doc ID 767662.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 04, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Tuxedo / Tuxedo / 6.5
Information in this document applies to any platform

Goal

The Tuxedo server, written in Cobol, was compiled with MicroFocus COBOL and built with buildserver.  A third-party DLL
(C1MATCH.dll) is also linked in as it required for the particular service.  The server boots fine, but immediately
dies when the client calls the service.  The combination of linking in this third-part DLL and using buildserver seems
to be the problem.

If the server is built without this third-party DLL, the service works fine.  If the server is built linking in the
DLL, but not involving Tuxedo in any way the service also works fine.  It is only when this third-party DLL is linked
in and buildserver is used that the service fails when called by the client. The ULOG displays that the process has
died, and 'tmadmin' stops displaying the server/service.
