  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Event manager used integers for storing task IDs, which caused
    a numeric overflow exception when task IDs were larger than
    what an integer can store. APAR JR49172 fixed this issue,
    however this fix can cause incomplete event manager tasks in
    very rare situations.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The code to read event manager tasks and their keywords relies
    on SQL SELECT statements producing sorted result sets, although
    the SELECT statement does not contain an ORDER BY clause. The
    result set is usually sorted, however, in very rare situations
    the result set is not sorted. In these situations, if the event
    manager task is to be rescheduled, the new event manager task
    does not contain all the keywords of the original event manager
    task. Canceling this new event manager task might cause several
    event manager tasks to be canceled too.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.0.1.3 and IBM BPM V8.5.5.0
    that correctly reads the event manager tasks with all their
    keywords.
