1 Oracle Database Patch Requirements

If you are using any of the 11g Release 1 (11.1) gateways listed below with Oracle Database 10g Release (10.2) or earlier, you need to download database Patch 5965763 from the OracleMetalink Web site.

2 Oracle Database Gateway for WebSphere MQ

The deployment script file pgmobj.sql located in the Gateway_Home\admin\deploy directory contains incorrect database link and library names. These incorrect names result in the malfunctioning of the gateway. You can detect this issue if the ORA-28509 error message is displayed and no gateway trace files are generated.

Workaround: To resolve this issue, make the following changes to the pgmobj.sql script:

  1. Replace all the database link names pg4mqdepdblink with dg4mqdepdblink.

  2. Replace all the library names libpg4mq with libdg4mq. Save the pgmobj.sql script and follow the instruction available in the gateway manual to run the script. To run the script, use SYS user as SYSDBA in SQL*Plus on the Oracle database that needs access to the gateway.

This issues is tracked with Oracle bug 6448585.
