APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The JavaScript method
    
      var result =
      tw.system.createFromXmlElement(?businessobjectname?,
      xmlelement)
    
    requires that the name attribute for the column element be in
    uppercase. Because a lowercase attribute value does not work,
    the XML element is ignored and the business object property
    value is not set.
    

Local fix

  • Write all attributes in uppercase notation.
    

Problem summary

  • The JavaScript API variable =
    tw.system.createFromXmlElement("businessobjectname", xmlelement)
    creates a variable from an XMLElement (refer to the JavaScript
    API reference documentation).
    
    The value of the name attribute of the column element is used to
    find the matching business object property name to map the
    element value. Currently, only uppercase values for the column
    attribute ?name? are supported.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available that removes this limitation. With the fix
    applied, the value of the name attribute of the column element
    can be in any case (lower, upper, or mixed case).
    
    For the mapping the value of the name attribute is translated to
    uppercase and the matching uppercase property name is searched.
    If it is found, the mapping runs; otherwise, the column element
    is skipped.
    
    Business object property names are not case sensitive (for
    example, only one property name of "id, ID, iD, Id" is allowed
    for a business object).
    
    With the fix applied, the following sample works:
     input XMLElement
             <resultSet columnCount="2" recordCount="1">
               <record>
                 <column name="name">testName</column>
                 <column name="value">testValue</column>
               </record>
             </resultSet>
    
     output BusinessObject variable
             <variable type="NameValuePair[]">
              <item type="NameValuePair">
                <name type="String"><![CDATA[testName]]></name>
                <value type="String"><![CDATA[testValue]]></value>
              </item>
            </variable>
    
    The following example already works before you apply the fix:
     input XMLElement
            <resultSet columnCount="2" recordCount="1">
              <record>
                <column name="NAME">testName</column>
                <column name="VALUE">testValue</column>
              </record>
            </resultSet>
    
         output BusinessObject variable
            <variable type="NameValuePair[]">
              <item type="NameValuePair">
                <name type="String"><![CDATA[testName]]></name>
                <value type="String"><![CDATA[testValue]]></value>
              </item>
            </variable>
