Error description

  • Fields that were initialized with a null value, are not
    displayed correctly by a Coach, especially if these fields are
    contained in a list.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • If a List datastructure contains fields that are initialized
    with a null value, and these values are displayed in a coach,
    then updates that are made in the coach may be lost when the
    data are sent to the server.
    
    PROBLEM DETAILED DESCRIPTION:
    The interface between the Browser and the Server was
    underspecified for null elements.  The code that runs in the
    Browser expects a JSON format of the data that contains the
    name of the null element and an indication that the element is
    null. The server on the other hand omitted the null element
    completely.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Now the server sends to the browser the JSON format that is
    expected by the browser.
