    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    In order to process XCI business object, the mediation
    module for SMO has changed it's behavior from creating a
    wrapper for the type to directly outputing the AnyType content.
    This has caused the binding and datahandler to incorrectly
    handle the business object resulting in exception.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This ifix will handle the change on mediation module. And
    handle that in the XMLdatahandler.
    
    Install/Dependency information is available in the readme.txt
    on FixCentral. When the user goes to the download files page
    in FixCentral, the readme will be available with the fix
    package as a separate download.
    
    The ifix and readme file can be downloaded in the fix central.
