IC87997: STERLING GENTRAN SERVER FOR MICROSOFT WINDOWS RELEASE 5.3 COMPOST HUNG WHEN END DELIMITER DID NOT MATCH SPLITTER ENT
Closed as program error.
When processing an EDIFACT interchange through Sterling Gentran Server for Microsift Windows in an inbound process, the Compost.exe would go into an infinite loop. The data contained unprintable character as the terminator. It was determined though that the terminator just did not have to match the splitter table entry, it did not matter whether it was printable or not. The break process also never kicked off. The file was not correct, so the fix would need to make the product error in a more graceful fashion.
STRRTC - 352952 WW/PF circumvention : None
Users Affected: Customers running Edifact and Tradacom data through compost where the segment terminator defined in the Splitter table does not match the segment terminator in the data. Problem Description: Input files larger than 4K with the above condition would cause compost to hang, processing would stop within compost until the compost process was terminated.
Resolution Summary: When there is no match in the Splitter table for Edifact and Tradacom Interchanges segment termianators pairs compared with the data, the interchange is marked as failed, an audit message is written to the audit log, and compost continues to process the remaining interchanges in the input file.
