Error description

  • When using the EVAL ESQL function to evaluate a UDP, if the UDP
    does not have a default value then the following Exception is
    thrown during evaluation:
    
    Jul 12 09:55:47 BOX IIB[22856]: IBM Integration Bus v100012
    (TESTNODE.default) [Thread 23130] (Msg 4/4) BIP2402E: (, 1.1) :
    Syntax error : 'EOF'.
    
    The issue is caused because the UDP is evaluated to the empty
    string and this empty string is treated as an ESQL expression.
    When parsing this resultant expression the parser fails.
    
    The issue may not occur if the "Compile and inline resources"
    checkbox is selected when building the bar file because under
    those circumstances the deploy processing may replace the UDP
    values as part of pre-processing.
    

Local fix

  • Enable compile and inline resources when building the bar file
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:

    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    When using the EVAL ESQL function to evaluate a UDP, if the UDP
    does not have a default value then the following exception is
    thrown during evaluation:
    
    BIP2402E: (, 1.1) : Syntax error : 'EOF'.
    
    The issue is caused because the UDP is evaluated to the empty
    string and this empty string is treated as an ESQL expression.
    When parsing this resultant expression the parser fails.
    
    The issue may not occur if the "Compile and inline resources"
    checkbox is selected when building the bar file because under
    those circumstances the deploy processing may replace the UDP
    values as part of pre-processing.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The parser no longer treats a UDP with no value as an empty
    string and parsing the expression no longer fails.
