JR35981: XML STAGE CORRUPTS DATA AFTER APPLYING IS81 FP1

 

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • After applying IS81 FP1, the XML stage corrupts data that is
    stored in char type types with the extended type of Unicode.
    
    The cause of the problem is a fix to the DSCapi layer to resolve
    memory leak issues caused by buffers not being freed.
    

Local fix

  • Set the environment variable  XML_PACKS_UNICODE  as  TRUE which
    causes the DSCapi layer to use the old method of memory
    management and removes the memory leak fix.
