APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • A WSDL contains a floating point field defined as
    'xs:decimal':
    <xs:element minOccurs="0" name="_TASSOINESSERE"
    type="xs:decimal"/>
    The structure produced by the DFHWS2LS is only a 3 decimal
    point field:
    12 XTASSOINESSERE   PIC S9(15)V9(3) COMP-3.
    This isn't acceptable as if the value is a real floating point
    the error DFHPI1009 (FRACTION_TOO_LONG) is generated.
    An option on DFHWS2LS should be provided to chage the default
    number of fraction digits used for decimal values.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: xs:decimal types default to three       *
    *                      fraction digits only                    *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    DFHWS2LS is being used with a WSDL document which contains
    elements of type 'xs:decimal'.
    
    If a fractionDigits facet is not supplied on a xs:decimal type
    then three decimal digits are used by default. If four or more
    fraction digits are supplied the message DFHPI1009
    (FRACTION_TOO_LONG) is produced.
    

Problem conclusion

  • To override the default of three a new DFHWS2LS and
    DFHSC2LS parameter has been created to supply a fraction default
    to use for xs:decimal types. The keyword is
    DEFAULT-FRACTION-DIGITS.  Valid values are 0-17 for COBOL, or
    0-30 if parameter WIDE-COMP3 is used. For C and PLI valid
    values are 0-30.
    
    The following publications have been updated:
    
    The CICS Transaction Server for z/OS Version 4 release 2
    Web Services Guide, SC34-7191-02. Topic DFHWS2LS: WSDL to
    high-level language conversion.
    
    The CICS Transaction Server for z/OS version 4 release 2
    Application Programming Guide, SC34-7158-02. Topic DFHSC2LS:
    XML schema to high-level language conversion.
    
    The update is as follows.
    
    DEFAULT-FRACTION-DIGITS=3|value
    
    Specifies the default number of fraction digits to use
    on an XML decimal schema type. The default is 3. For COBOL,
    the valid range is 0 to 17, or 0-30 if parameter WIDE-COMP3
    is being used. For C or PLI the valid range is 0-30.
    
    If an XML decimal constraining facet of type fractionDigits
    is supplied then the DEFAULT-FRACTION-DIGITS value is not used.
