Error description

  • If a z/OS PERFORM TRANSFORM occurs with XMLEBCDIC(Y)
    and the XML input file prolog contains encoding="UTF-8",
    this works correctly. But if a retranslation is attempted
    using INTYPE(ST) (meaning the input data is retrieved
    from the document store), then the following error occurs:
    Message: UP0001 Severity: 08
      A fatal error occurred during parsing of XML document
      XMLinput at line 1, column 1.
      Message text from parser is An exception occurred!
      Type:UTFDataFormatException, Message:invalid byte  nt
      (x) of a -byte sequence
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • If a z/OS PERFORM TRANSFORM occurs with XMLEBCDIC(Y)
    and the XML input file prolog contains encoding="UTF-8",
    this works correctly. But if a retranslation is attempted
    using INTYPE(ST) (meaning the input data is retrieved
    from the document store), then the following error occurs:
    Message: UP0001 Severity: 08
    A fatal error occurred during parsing of XML document
    XMLinput at line 1, column 1.
    Message text from parser is An exception occurred!
    Type:UTFDataFormatException, Message:invalid byte
    (x) of a -byte sequence.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This error occurs because when the original translation
    occurs, DB2 table EDIDSDOC column CHARENCODING contains
    "UTF-8", even though XMLEBCDIC(Y) was specified on the
    PERFORM command. UTF-8 is then used as the source encoding
    during the retranslation attempt.
    The code will be changed to store "ebcdic-xml-us" if
    XMLEBCDIC(Y) is used during an XML translation in z/OS
    batch. It will then be ebcdic-xml-us that is used as the
    source encoding when retranslated with INTYPE(ST).
    

Temporary fix

Comments

  • This only applies to z/OS batch.
