Error description

  • When a customer used a Message Element Setter mediation
    primitive to set values in a message they found that when a "+"
    was added to a String it was written to the message as a blank.
    For example if they set "++Test" to a string value it ended up
    in the message as " Test".

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus v7.5 and Business
    Process Server v7.5 and v8 who are making use of a Message
    Element Setter Mediation Primitive to set a String value into a
    message.
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    In prior versions a non-human readable format was used for
    Mediation Flows which required string properties to be encoded.
    v7.5 introduced the Human Readable Flow format and this format
    did not require string properties to be encoded.
    
    The Message Element Setter Mediation Primitive was not able to
    determine if the flow was Human Readable or not and encoded all
    properties regardless. This in some circumstances resulted in a
    string property not being written to a message correctly when
    the flow was Human Readable.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Message Element Setter Mediation Primitive has been changed
    to only encode string properties for non-human readable flows.
    
    This code fix was targeted to be included in the following fix
    packs:
    
    
    7.5.1 Fix Pack 3 (v7.5.1.3)
    8.0.1 Fix Pack 4 (v8.0.1.4)
    

Temporary fix
