IT03958: PREFIX CHANGE FOR THE SAME NAMESPACE OF AN XML MAP INPUT/OUTPUT

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The graphical mapper in the Toolkit generates prefixes for
    XML namespaces of map inputs and outputs. The prefixes were not
    serialized, and as a result could change after modifying map
    input/output, and different prefixes could be associated to the
    same namespace at development time in Toolkit and at runtime.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of WebSphere Message Broker Toolkit V8.0 and IBM
    Integration Toolkit V9.0 using the map editor.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    A prefix is generated for each namespace involved in a map.
    The prefix-namespace pairing was not kept across map editor
    sessions; while the prefix was used in XPath expressions for
    some mapping transforms. When there is an addition or change to
    the map's input and output, the prefix for the same namespace
    can become different. The change in prefix results in unresolved
    XPath references or unexpected results from a previously written
    XPath expression.
    
    There are a number of resource name changes between WebSphere
    Message Broker and IBM Integration Bus Version 9.0. For details

    tools.mft.doc/bb23814_.htm
    

Problem conclusion

  • The product is corrected and the prefix for a particular
    namespace in the map editor session will not change without the
    user's knowledge.
