Error description

  • Some of the POSITION and TRIM functions are broken when using
    the flag "useICUStringManipulation = yes" on ESQLManager.
    .
    For example the following TRIM and POSITION generates wrong
    output :
    .
    trim('A')='' instead of 'A'
    trim('A ')='' instead of 'A'
    trim('A ')='' instead of 'A'
    .
    POSITION('0' IN '0123456789')=0 instead of 1
    POSITION('0' IN '00123456789')=2 instead of 1
    
    
    Additional Symptom(s) Search Keyword(s):TRIM, POSITION,

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All the users of IBM Integration Bus version 10 using ESQL
    functions TRIM and POSITION.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    z/OS, MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    ESQL string functions TRIM and POSITION are broken when using a
    mode where ICU string functions are used.
    The mode is disabled by default, but can be enabled by running:
    mqsichangeproperties IB10NODE -e default -o ImbESQLManager -n
    useICUStringManipulation -v yes
    
    For example the following TRIM and POSITION generates wrong
    output  when useICUStringManipulation is enabled.
    .
    trim('A')='' instead of 'A'
    trim('A ')='' instead of 'A'
    trim('A  ')='' instead of 'A'
    .
    POSITION('0' IN '0123456789')=0 instead of 1
    POSITION('0' IN '00123456789')=2 instead of 1
    

Problem conclusion

  • The product has been corrected so that the ESQL String functions
    TRIM and POSITION produce correct result on using the flag
    "useICUStringManipulation = yes" on ESQLManager.
