Error description

  • From the exception it is clear that getJDBCMajorVersion()
    is not
    implemented by the JDBC driver of IBM Universe/Unidata 11.1.0.
    
    " The JDBC Driver for UniData and UniVerse is an implementation
    of the JDBC  1.0 specification with limited functionality
    supported for the JDBC 2.0 specification."
    JDBC 2.0 Specification doesn't have getJDBCMajorVersion() API.
    
    The error that was shown in the PMR text was:

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    AbstractMethodError exception is thrown when
    getJDBCMajorVersion() API is invoked by the JDBC driver which
    is not JDBC Specification 3.0 complaint.
    

Problem conclusion

  • getJDBCMajorVersion() method is invoked to provide JDBC driver
    specification level in the FFDC, so the code is modified to
    catch throwable exception thrown by the method and debug
    statement with the exception is added
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.31, 8.0.0.8 and 8.5.5.1.  Please refer to the
