Abstract

OSP-OTHER-INCORROUT TOOLBOX JDBC WITH BATCHED INPUT PARAMETERS
COMPRESSES INCORRECTLY

Error Description

If the Toolbox JDBC driver connects to an IBM i server at      
current PTF levels, it will by default use varying length field
compression for input parameters. If any of the input          
parameters are VARCHAR CCSID 65535 or VARCHAR FOR BIT DATA, the
compression routine will not properly compress these            
parameters. This will result in data not aligning correctly, so
the error received from the host may vary. In the first        
reported problem, the error was:                                
                                                               
SQL0423 - Locator *N not valid                                  

Problem Summary

If the Toolbox JDBC driver connects to an IBM i server at      
current PTF levels, it will by default use varying length field
compression for input parameters. If any of the input parameters
are VARCHAR CCSID 65535 or VARCHAR FOR BIT DATA, the compression
routine will not properly compress these parameters. This will  
result in data not aligning correctly, so the error received    
from the host may vary. In the first reported problem, the error
was:                                                            
                                                               
SQL0423 - Locator *N not valid                                  

Problem Conclusion

The Toolbox JDBC driver has been updated to correctly compress  
VARCHAR FOR BIT DATA and VARCHAR CCSID 65535 data types.
