APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Error Message: NewStringPlatform & GetStringPlatform will return
    -2 error code.
    Code using JRIO will crash due to null being passed in JNI code.
    -Xcheck:jni can be used to check this.
    .
    Stack Trace: N/A
    .
    

Local fix

  • Always set codepage rather than let it fall back to LANG
    default.
    Use -Dfile.encoding.
    

Problem summary

  • NewStringPlatform & GetStringPlatform return -2 error code when
    LANG is used with a MBCS for the encoding on z/OS.
    e.g.
    LANG=Ja_JP.IBM-939
    LC_SYNTAX=Ja_JP.IBM-939
    LC_ALL=Ja_JP.IBM-939
    java [app]
    
    Code using JRIO will crash due to null being passed in JNI code.
    -Xcheck:jni can be used to check this.
    
    This is an additional fix to APAR IZ50583. Both should be
    applied together.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This defect will be fixed in:
    5.0.0 SR11 FP1
    .
    
    The ascii > ebcdic & ebcdic > ascii converters have been fixed
    to work with Multi-Byte Character Sets.
    .
    To obtain the fix:
    Install build 20091209 or later
