Error description

  • transcode() function in XML4C that coverts data from the host's
    default codepage to UTF-16 (XMLCh *) when populating the XML DOM
    tree node for the exception message.  In this case the native
    strings will be treated as IBM-1140, causing the corruption of
    the NLS characters.

    *                    NLS characters in text passed to test     *
    *                    runner APIs AZUASTFM, AZUTCADD, or        *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: 01.When the user-supplied reason text   *
    *                         for an assertion exception           *
    *                         (AZU1003S) contains NLS characters,  *
    *                         these characters may be corrupted    *
    *                         when included in the test runner     *

    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    01.If the codepage/CCSID of the NLS characters is not
       compatible with the default C/C++ locale on the z/OS system,
       the NLS characters may be damaged when converted to UTF-8.
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.A new test runner parameter has been added to allow
       specification of a C/C++ compiled locale to use when
       converting native character data to/from UTF-8.
