APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When a message that contains Unicode characters is sent through
    a flow while mediation trace is enabled then when the tracing
    code fails to serialize the non-XML characters it will also
    damage the internal structure of the SMO which will prevent it
    being accessed correctly later in the flow

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus and Business Process
    Manager v7.5 and v8 who use Unicode characters in messages.
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    When a message that includes Unicode characters that are invalid
    in XML, such as 0x1d, is parsed by a mediation primitive then an
    internal exception is seen. This exception should allow the flow
    to continue but a consequence is that the Service Message Object
    (SMO) that contains the message has it's container damaged and
    this can result in the SMO not being usable later in the flow.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code was changed such that the container of the Service
    Message Object is not damaged when an invalid XML character is
    present in the message.
    
    
    This code fix was targeted to be included in the following fix
    packs:
    
    7.5.1 Fix Pack 2 (v7.5.1.2)
    8.0.1 Fix Pack 3 (BPM v8.0.1.3)
    

Temporary fix
