Error description

  • If the root parameter in the request message contains a
    string type that is a pure number that is longer than nine
    digits and starts with zeros, such as 001234567890, after web
    service integration occurs the leading zeros are removed. For
    example, the request contains one string element only:
    
    <element name="op">
      <complexType>
       <sequence>
        <element name="example" type="xsd/>
       </sequence>
      </complexType>
    </element>
    
    If the value that you entered is 001234567890, the generated
    SOAP request message looks like 1234567890.

    ****************************************************************
    When web service integration code tries to generate the SOAP
    request, the simple type for root element is not been
    transferred to the serializer. Therefore, the serializer must
    guess the type of the simple type. While serializing the
    parameter value, if the value is longer than nine digits, the
    value is processed as a decimal type instead of a string type.
    With the value format changed, the leading zeros are removed.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.0.1 to properly pass a
    parameter &#162;&#226;&#130;&#172;&#226;&#132;&#162;s type to the request message serializer.
