Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

 

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Text/Decimal Field becomes empty. The input value is disappeared
    when the value is invalid.
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED:
    IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced
    IBM BPM Standard
    IBM BPM Express
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • When the Text control is first displayed, the binding value is
    an empty string. If an invalid value is entered, when the Text
    control attempts to reset the binding value to an empty string
    it is skipped because the old and new values match.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.5.0 that consistently clears
    the field when an invalid value is entered, and focus is lost.
    Behaviour will be aligned across like entry stock controls, for
    example, Text, Integer and Decimal. The fix for this APAR on
    8.5.5.0 has been superseded and included in cumulative fix for
    JR52731.
