Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 20.0.0.2 and Collaboration &
    Deployment Services C&DS 4.2.1.3 installed on a Windows server
    64 bit. The correct Statistics Adapters for 20.0.0.2 64 bit are
    installed as well.
    
    In Statistics you created some pivot tables with layer
    categories including text with Polish characters. You publish
    the output into the repository and view the SPW file in PEB
    browser.
    As soon as you would like to switch a layer category to display
    another layer you get an error displayed on PEB and in the
    server log:
    ! A server error occurred while applying the action'
    
    If you click on 'more' next to the error you get :
    
    org.apache.xerces.impl.io.MalformedByteSequenceException:
    Invalid byte 2 of 4-byte UTF-8 sequence. at
    org.apache.xerces.parsers.DOMParser.parse(Unknown Source) at
    org.apache.xerces.jaxp.DocumentBuilderImpl.parse(Unknown Source)
    at javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilder.parse(Unknown Source) at
    ... etc.
    
    You do not get this error when you switch layers on pivot tables
    with English characters on the table, only with Polish
    characters.
    This issue was reported to IBM SPSS Development.
    

Local fix

  • This issue will be addressed in the next Fix Pack for release 21
    (21.0.0.1). Please refer to the Fix Pack schedule at
    http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21599157 for
    information on upcoming Fix Packs.
    
    If you encounter the issue described above for release 20.0.0.2
    please open a Service
    Request with IBM SPSS Technical Support. An Interim Fix was
    developed for customers who need the fix prior to the next
    upcoming Fix Pack.
    
    Please contact Technical Support with reference to APAR PM68731
    and technote 1621578 about about Interim Fix 1 for Statistics
    20.0.0.2 Collaboration & Deployment Services Adapters.
    
    Note: Interim fixes are limited corrections to specific issues
    reported by one or more customers. They are normally sent only
    to customers who have reported one of the corrected problems,
    and who require an immediate correction. Interim Fixes do not
    address customer enhancement requests, and not all defect
    corrections can be delivered as Interim Fixes. Due to their
    urgency Interim Fixes undergo only targeted testing of specific
    fixes, not full regression testing. If the fix is not urgently
    required, you may prefer to wait for a scheduled Fix Pack
    Release, which will be fully regression tested. Interim Fix
    corrections, once fully regression tested, are automatically
    included in a future Fix Pack.
