APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Need to allow individual maps to be configured for zSeries
    conversion without changing the default global setting which is
    to use iSeries conversion.
    

Local fix

  • No workaround
    

Problem summary

  • Users Affected:
    GIODE and customers who need to perform packed decimal
    conversion (iSeries or zSeries).
    
    Problem Description:
    There is a global translator properties setting for
    controlling whether or not packed decimal conversion is
    performed for iSeries or zSeries, but there is not a method for
    controlling which format (iSeries or zSeries) is used for the
    conversion based on the map being executed.
    
    Platforms Affected:
    All
    

Problem conclusion

  • Resolution Summary:
    This enhancement will be similar to configuring maps for SWIFT
    and removing trailing zeroes, before that feature was made part
    of map compilation.
    In the customer_overrides.properties, add the suffix which will
    identify maps for zSeries packed decimal conversion:
    translator.storage.needZSeriesPackedDecimal.mapSuffix._ZSERIES=t
    rue
    In each map, add the suffix "_ZSERIES" to the Map Description
    (e.g. "ASCII_to_EBCDIC_ZSERIES") and re-compile the map.  The
    Map Description is used because the compiled txo has no
    reference to the map name.
    You can declare any suffix you want in
    customer_overrides.properties.
    If desired, you can also declare specific maps instead of using
    a suffix.  For example:
    translator.storage.ASCII_to_EBCDIC.needZSeriesPackedDecimal=true
    ...where "ASCII_to_EBCDIC" matches the Map Description.
