APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If you are using an outbound web service with the XSD:Date
    type in WSDL for one of the parameters and the parameter value
    in the SOAP response uses a pattern that is similar to
    2001-12-31T12:00:00, the outbound web service transforms the
    parameter to a string type by mistaken.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The string type is used as the          *
    *                      response parameter instead of the       *
    *                      date type.                              *

    ****************************************************************
    This issue occurs when you transform the SOAP message to
    TWObject. In a SOAP message, all the content is in plain text.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix for IBM BPM V7.5.1.2 is available that introduces a new
    property <type-string-to-date> to ensure that the content is
    parsed into a date type instead of a string type.
    
    You can set the property as shown here in the 100Custom.xml
    file:
     <common merge="mergeChildren">
     ....
      <type-string-to-date
    merge="replace">true</type-string-to-date>
     ....
     </common>
