Error description

  • Using IBM SPSS Statistics 21 FP2 and 22 GA to use the Statistics
    API Extension and build a Java program which accesses SPSS
    Statistics and Server fails.
    
    After successfully executing a simple syntax to a Statistics
    Server backend problems occur when reading and writing to a
    Statistics Server environment using the
    'openSocketForOutputData' method.
    
    When executing, the following exception is returned by SPSS
    Statistics:
    com.spss.statistics.api.StatisticsApiException:
    openSocketForOuputData method not found!
     at
    com.spss.statistics.api.StatisticsApiProxy.openSocketForOutputDa
    ta
    (Unknown Source)
     at TestReadData.openSocket(TestReadData.java:12)
     at TestServer2.test2_TestReadData(TestServer2.java:50)
     at TestServer2.main(TestServer2.java:97)
    
    It is expected that the program executes without any exception
    messages.
