Error description

  • In case of the XML Schema base types xs:int, xs:boolean, and
    xs:double
    the BPEL Assign activity currently assigns a default value (0 in
    case of
     xs:int, false in case of xs:boolean, and 0.0 in case of
    xs:double) to
    the target element if the source element is not set. For all
    other XML
    Schema base types, the BPEL Assign activity assigns the value
    "null" to
    the target element, if the source element is not set.
    This fix offers a custom property. When it is set no default
    will be
    assigned by BPEL Assign activity and elements, that are not
    set in the source data structure should remain not set in the
    target
    data structure.

Problem summary

  • Disable default values in XPath selection of base types.
    
    PROBLEM DETAILED DESCRIPTION:
    In case of the XML Schema base types xs:int, xs:boolean, and
    xs:double the BPEL Assign activity currently assigns a default
    value (0 in case of xs:int, false in case of xs:boolean, and
    0.0 in case of xs:double) to the target element if the source
    element is not set.
    This fix offers a custom property. When it is set no default
    will be selected by BPEL Assign activity and thus not be copied
    to the target side.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This fix needs to be enabled via a custom property.
    When this property is set, the BPEL engine will make the XCI
    XPath Engine to ignore the default values of basic types when
    evaluating XPath expressions.
    
    To set this custom property, connect to the administrative
    console and navigate to the appropriate Java virtual machine
    custom properties page:
    
      Servers > Server Types > WebSphere application servers >
      server_name,
    
    and for each application server, in the Server Infrastructure
    section, click:
    
      Java and Process Management > Process definition > Java
      Virtual Machine > Custom Properties
    
    Add the following custom property:
    
      Name:  XPathExpressionEvaluation
      Value: disableDefaultValues
    
    Save the changes.
    
    Please note that the server needs to be restarted for the
    property to become active.
