Error description

  • You are running DFHLS2WS and supplying a PLI structure as
    input. The problem is the containers that are created in the
    output have lengths larger then they should be. This problem is
    caused by DFHLS2WS which is padding bytes after the top level
    structure.
    
    For example, the length of the top level structure is 21 bytes,
    and an extra 3 bytes are added for word alignment.

    *                      and increasing the size of containers   *

    ****************************************************************
    User is using DFHLS2WS tool to generate WSDL file from PLI data
    structure:
    DCL
      1 abcd_V1,
        2 abcd_s1                    FIXED BIN(31),
        2 abcd_s2                    FIXED DEC(2),
        2 abcd_s3                    FIXED DEC(3),
        2 abcd_s4                    FIXED DEC(3),
        2 abcd_s5                    FIXED DEC(3),
        2 abcd_s6                    CHAR (1),
        2 abcd_s7                    CHAR (2),
        2 abcd_s8                    FIXED DEC(4),
        2 abcd_s9                    CHAR (1),
        2 abcd_sa                    CHAR (1),
        2 abcd_sb                    CHAR (1);
    The actual length of this structure is 21 bytes while DFHLS2WS
    tool pads extra 3 bytes to the end of abcd_V1 to make it
    align to boundary with 24 bytes long.
    Thus, when user GET CONTAINER for DFHWS-DATA, it gets length
    error.
    

Problem conclusion

  • DFHLS2WS assistant tool has been updated to make sure no padding
    will happen to PLI top level structure and correct structure
    length is calculated.
