APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
NULL values are allowed to be inserted into a table with a
primary key.   This can be reproduced using the following steps:

1) create or replace table t1 (col1 int)
2) insert into t1 values(1)
3) insert into t1 values(null) - fails with "INSERT, UPDATE, or
MERGE not allowed by CHECK constraint."
4) RMVPFCST FILE(T1) CST(*all) TYPE(*PRIKEY)
5) Respond with a 'K' for the inquiry message "Key
specifications are going to be removed from file T1.  (K G)"
6) ADDPFCST FILE(T1) TYPE(*PRIKEY) KEY(COL1)

7) insert into t1 values(null) - this should fail and is
successful

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE64621' :
-------------------------------
This problem can occur for some numeric data types.  Constraint
processing is corrected for keyed files to add a primary key
check constraint to prevent NULL values for all data types.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE64621' :
----------------------------------
None.
