APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When the option in the Map Editor is selected to not strip
    whitespace within XML, a warning is generated by the
    translation engine for each occurrence of whitespace within the
    XML. If these warnings exceed the maximum warning count for the
    translation report, the service is marked as being in
    error, even if there was no error. This prevents successful
    workflow completion of processing of any document with large
    amounts of whitespace within XML tags.
    

Local fix

  • No workaround
    

Problem summary

  • Users Affected:
    All customers who use Standards Map Editor and translator
    
    Problem Description:
    Extraneous whitespace characters for XML processing condition is
    written out as a warning to the translation report.  If the max
    entries limit is reached, a final entry is written to the
    report.  The bug is that if only warnings exist in the report,
    this final entry should likewise have a severity of "WARNING".
    Instead, the entry is always written out with a severity of
    "ERROR".  The error status is preventing "good" data from being
    processed in SPE using the translation service since the overall
    status of the service is marked as ERROR.
    
    Platforms Affected:
    All
    

Problem conclusion

  • Resolution Summary:
    Translator has been updated not to use an "ERROR"
    severity
    when the max entries limit is reached, and only warnings exist
    in the report. New error status has been added to write
    out an additional ERROR entry in the report if a translation
    error occurs after the "max entries reached" condition is
    written out as a warning.
