Error description

  • A Mapping node can fail to execute a maps that include Custom
    ESQL/Java transforms with an exception of the following form
    being reported:
    
    BIP4187', 'value has wrong type', '<ESQL routine
    name>','<required type>', 'CHARACTER'
    
    The issues occur when the custom routines called from the map
    have parameters that require types other than simple string/ESQL
    CHARACTER.
    
    Even if the map does not fail the problem prevents the runtime
    from generating the map Java byte code meaning it's execution
    will not be optimized.
    

Local fix

  • It might be possible to avoid the issue by replacing Custom ESQL
    / Java transforms with Custom XPath transforms.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of IBM App Connect Enterprise V11.0 who use Mapping
    nodes and maps containing Custom ESQL/Java transforms

    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    A Mapping node can fail to execute a map that include Custom
    ESQL/Java transforms with an exception of the following form
    being reported:
    
    BIP4187', 'value has wrong type', '<ESQL routine
    name>','<required type>', 'CHARACTER'
    
    The issues occur when the custom routines called from the map
    have parameters that require types other than simple string/ESQL
    CHARACTER.
    
    Even if the map does not fail the problem prevents the runtime
    from generating the map Java byte code meaning its execution
    will not be optimized.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The generation of the Map into its runtime executable has been
    corrected so that maps with Custom ESQL/Java transforms execute
    correctly.
