APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If the DFDL parser finds a parsing error from data that is
    inside an unsorted sequence and that is not inside a Point of
    Uncertainty then it can leave the parser in a state that means
    it will abend when the next message is parsed.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of IBM App Connect Enterprise v11 and IBM Integration
    Bus V10 who use DFDL schemas with unordered sequences.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    When a DFDL parsing error was thrown from an element inside an
    unordered sequence the resulting resetting of the DFDL parser
    was not resetting a doc handler as it should have been. This
    could result in an abend when the next message tried to access
    this memory.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The DFDL Parser resetting code has been changed such that the
    doc handler now correctly resets when in an unordered group.
