    transaction across regions. This applies to webservices created
    in Rational Business Developer EGL.

    Workaround
    ----------
    One of the default COBOL parameters for the EGL build server is
    DBCS. It is because of this parameter default that the COBOL bug
    gets triggered. Add the following symbolic parameter to the EGL
    build descriptor:
    
       COBLISTPARMS with a value of 'NODBCS'
    
    If a COBLISTPARMS symbolic parameter already exists, then simply
    add ',NODBCS' to the end of it.
    
    Regenerate the EGLDD for the web service. This will regenerate
    the program with the problem.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The problem is actually a bug in the COBOL compiler, when the
    DBCS compiler option is used. For some reason, the cobol
    compiler believes that the literal on a MOVE FUNCTION
    NATIONAL-OF("literal") TO statement is a unicode literal, when
    it is not, so the literal gets changed again to unicode,
    producing invalid results. If the literal was shortened by a few
     bytes, then it believes the literal to be character, which is
    really is.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Cobolgen gets around this problem by making the literal one of
    the cobolgen variables, so the definition of the text is in a
    PIC X clause. This eliminates the possibility of the cobol
    compiler from assuming the literal is already unicode.
