Error description

  • Need a fix for the way ASE handles the response extracted from
    the SQL server. If not at least we can change the default used
    in the template.
    
    Explanation for the problem:
    When the request is saved and then reloaded from the database,
    for some reason an extra null character ('\0') is added at the
    end of the body. Because of this, the SOAP custom parameter
    condition pattern doesn't match the body anymore, so the
    parameters are not extracted. By adding '.?', the condition
    pattern accepts an optional extra character at the end of the
    string, to match the extra null character.
    Our guess is the problem lies with MSSQL (or the one of the
    database functions in ASE), since in AppScan Standard (which
    uses Firebird) it seems to work properly.
