Error description

  • When searching for a long string in the catalog search field an

    longer than the database column definition.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
    WebSphere Commerce Users who use the catalog search field when
    the database type is DB2 and the search string is longer than
    the corresponding column in the database.
    
    PROBLEM ABSTRACT:
    When using the catalog search capability of the Commerce
    Management Center, an exception appears in the tool if the
    database is DB2 and the search value is a long string.
    
    BUSINESS IMPACT:
    The unfriendly exception is not clear for business users who are
    unfamiliar with SQL exception syntax

Problem conclusion

    printing the exception when searching for a long search string
    which exceeds the column length in database.
