Error description

  • When attempting a WTX xml-to-flat file conversion, the UTF-8
    conversion is incorrect.
    
    For example, if the value "Évangeline" is in the input
    data, the expected output is "ミvangeline" with the accent on the
    E.  This conversion is not occurring.
    
    The expected text is "ミvangeline" with the correct character
    UTF-8 encoded to C3 89 (hex).
    
    This problem is present for any extended character if
    it is at the first position inside the node.  For example,
    <xml>&#65410;vangeline</xml> is converted to flat text
    "&#233;vangeline" while the expected text is "&#65410;vangeline".
    
    If there a second extended character (with an accent), the
    problem is not present.  For example, <xml>&#65424;vang&#65410;line</xml> is
    correctly converted to "&#65424;vang&#65410;line".
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Customers using WTX transform binary action to transform
    XML
    containing escaped characters like "&#201;" are affected. The
    characters
    will not be converted to correct characters in the output data.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
