Error description

  • The ResumeSoftStop business process sets an invalid
    xport-smtp-mailhost in the SMTP
    Send Adapter. When the business process tries to send an email
    message, it fails with invalid host.
    
    The ResumeSoftStop business process is a new process added in
    5.2.5.
    
    The problem is that the SMTP Send Adapter looks like this:
    
                <operation name="SMTP Send">
                     <participant name="SMTP_SEND_ADAPTER"/>
                     <output
    message="SMTP_SEND_ADAPTERInputMessage">
                      <assign to="xport-smtp-mailfrom"
    from="//mailfrom/text()"/>
                      <assign to="xport-smtp-mailhost"
    from="mysmtphost.ibm.com"></assign>
                      <assign to="xport-smtp-mailport">25</assign>
                      <assign to="xport-smtp-mailto"
    from="//mailto/text()"/>
                      <assign to="xport-smtp-mailsubject">Automated
    Terminate Notification</assign>
                      <assign to="." from="*"></assign>
                     </output>
                      <input message="inmsg">
                      <assign to="." from="*"/>
                     </input>
                </operation>
    
    The line:
    <assign to="xport-smtp-mailhost"
    from="mysmtphost.ibm.com"></assign>
    resolves to a null for xport-smtp-mailhost. The string
    mysmtphost.ibm.com is being interpreted as
    XPath and is resolved to a null.
    

Local fix

  • Circumvention:
    Hardcode xport-smtp-mailhost in business process.
    

Problem summary

  • The ResumeSoftStop system business process gets an invalid
    value for the xport-smpt-mailhost property.
    
    Users Affected:
    All
    
    Platforms Affected:
    All
    

Problem conclusion

  • The system business process ResumeSoftStop now assigns the
    xport-smpt-mailhost correctly.
