IV19881: INCORRECT BIGDECIMAL VALUES COMPUTED
Closed as program error.
Error Message: N/A. Errors will only be reported if the application happens to be self-testing; otherwise the symptom will just be corruption of numerical data. . Stack Trace: N/A . Does NOT occur in Java 5 or Java 6. Only Java 7 has this problem. On System Z, this only occurs on z9 or newer. On POWER, this only occurs on POWER6 or newer.
BigDecimal contains some method that the jit MUST recognize and treat specially for correctness. Recently, the JCL code was modified in such a way as to defeat the recognition algorithm (which uses names and signatures) thereby causing the jit to omit the special treatment for these methods.
This defect will be fixed in: 7.0.0 SR1 . The jit has been updated to recognize the new methods as special and treat them accordingly.
