Error description

  • The documentation regarding the JSON parser does not make it

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of IBM Integration Bus v10 and IBM App Connect
    Enterprise v11 who consume and produce JSON.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    z/OS, MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    The documentation regarding the JSON parser and message format
    does not make it sufficiently clear that the JSON parser used in
    the product only supports outputting a JSON object or a JSON
    array as the root value type. It is not possible to output a
    JSON string, number, boolean, or null type value as the root
    JSON value.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The product documentation has been updated to clarify this
    restriction on the supported types for the JSON root value.
    

Temporary fix
