Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of IBM App Connect Enterprise v11 and IBM Integration
    Bus v10.0, using CDATA sections in the XMLNSC parser.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    z/OS, MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    When the XMLNSC parser encounters a CDATA field this may be
    split into multiple elements in the message tree if the CDATA
    contains the character "]" (Right square bracket).
    
    This is because the XLXP parsing engine recognises this
    characted as markup and passes it to the IIB doc handler to
    interpret.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This APAR introduces a new parameter "cdataFieldMerging" on the
    ComIbmGenericXmlParserFactory which allows the XMLNSC DocHandler
    to merge the multiple value children of CDATA section into a
    single element in the message tree .
    
    The default value of the parameter is set to "no" where the
    CDATA section gets split up to multiple parts based on "]"
    character and size of data .
    
    When the value is set to "yes" the CDATA section merges into a
    single element in the message tree, even if the character "]" is
    present in the data .
    
    This property can be set at the execution group level using
    mqsichangeproperties for example:
    mqsichangeproperties <brokerName> -e <egName> -o
    ComIbmGenericXmlParserFactory -n cdataFieldMerging -v <no|yes>
