Error description

  • DB2 supports specification of an inline length for a column of
    type XML/LOB/user defined type.
    Under the scenario where this column is used as an input to a
    function, DB2 might ignore the
    inline length specification and use the default length for the
    datatype.
    
    This can lead to buffer overruns and memory corruption if the
    data length exceeds the default datatype length.
