Error description

  • You implement a web service function using the 4GL web services
    extension and send an XML SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol)
    request to it. One parameter has the value NULL specified using
    the SOAP attribute xsi:nil, as in the following example:
    
       <myNameSpace:myParam xsi:nil="true"/>
    
    The 4GL service function does not recognize the value and
    returns error -1318 . In addition, NULL return values from the
    4GL service function are not marked using the attribute xsi:nil
    in the corresponding XML SOAP answer.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * The earlier design was not handling NULL values. Now with    *
    * the thread safe solution, all requests/responses will be     *
    * treated as string, and hence it is easier to handle NULL     *
    * values. This is partially fixed, there is one more defect in *
    * which NULL values in real/smallfloat, etc. are being         *
    * returned as 0 instead of NULL.                               *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * Wait for 4GL 7.50.xC5 to come out to test this.              *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • With every request/response being treated as string, if there is
    a NULL value, the push and pop string functions will handle
    this.
