APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In the following scenarios, substituting variables, for example
    {{tw.local.myvar}}, does not substitute the value in custom
    HTML:
    
    -Uninitialized or null variables are generated into the HTML as
    "{{local.var1}}", although in previous releases it would have
    been "" (an empty string).
    
    -CustomHTMLs that are placed in a view's content box can be
    generated incorrectly depending on the level of nesting. Because
    variables are not resolved, they are generated into the HTML as
    "{{tw.local.var1}}", although in previous releases each variable
    would have been resolved and generated as the variable's value
    "var1 value".
    
    -Trying to access certain system variables throws the
    java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException and the coach is not
    generated. One example is when
    tw.system.currentProcessInstanceID, which is not defined in the
    internal static system variable set, is used and generated into
    the coach page.
