Error description

  • When you install the APAR JR49638 interim fix, two exceptions
    could occur when you use Pivot tables:
    
    - A NullPointerException could occur when null data is inserted
      into the Pivot table.
    - An SQLException could occur when business data is updated in
      the Pivot table that indicates that the number of parameters
      used by the SQL statement is not correct.

Local fix

Problem summary

  • APAR JR49638 does not check for null scenarios. As a result, the
    number of parameters that the SQL statement uses to update the
    Pivot tables is incorrect.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.0.0 that ensures that null
    values are handled correctly and that the correct number of
    parameters is used for SQL statements.
    
    On Fix Central (http://www.ibm.com/support/fixcentral), search
    for JR50193:
    
    1. Select IBM Business Process Manager with your edition from
      the product selector, the installed version to the fix pack
      level, and your platform, and then click Continue.
    
    2. Select APAR or SPR, enter JR50193, and click Continue.
    
    When you download fix packages, ensure that you also download
    the readme file for each fix. Review each readme file for
    additional installation instructions and information about the
    fix.
