Error description

Local fix

  • NA
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of IBM Integration Bus v10 or App Connect Enterprise v11
    who use DFDL schemas with Shift_JIS encoded messages
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    <span style="background-color:rgb(255, 255, 255)">The Shift_JIS
    codepage uses special 'shift' characters followed by another
    character to represent different Japanese characters. Some of
    the second characters used for this already have values assigned
    and if one of those characters, such as '|' was used as a
    separator in a schema then a parse would fail as the DFDL parser
    would treat the '|' as a separator and fail trying to parse the
    now-single 'shift' character</span>
    

Problem conclusion

  • <span style="background-color:rgb(255, 255, 255)">The DFDL
    parser was changed so if the encoding is Shift_JIS and it finds
    a separator it now checks that the previous character is not a
    special 'shift' character.</span>
