Strange issue on an iSeries where it was never an issue before. In a script
(.sh) that runs in a QSH statement where I call my java application I write
a few things out to a .log file.

In this statement I set the value of %version to the numeric string of the
-version command.

export -s version=$("java" -version 2>&1 | awk -F '"' '/version/ {print

This has been working for years this way.

Lately, when running on systems (Java 6 and 7) I am getting a 'awk command
not found' as if a PTF removed it or something related to QSHELL is not

It is as if awk has been removed from qsh command set.

1) is anyone aware of this happening?
2) what would be a good work around to write out the Java -version into a
text log file?
