Error description

  • Stored procedure that worked in DB2 V8 no longer works in
    Version 9.5.
    
    Here the customers are using identical buffers for both rgbValue
    [ Which stores the value returned from the SP ]  and pcbValue
    [Which stores the length of the datatype returned ].
    
    
    As pcbValue is processed after rgbValue so the output value [ 0
    ] of the Sp is overwritten by the length of the return type [ 4
    ] and hence the customers were getting the rgbValue as 4 instead
    of 0 which is expected.
    
    But in v8 it was done the other way around, so the customers
    used to get 0 which is their expected value.
