Different types of data corruption occur in WebSphere Lombardi Edition 7.1 when the WebSphere Lombardi Edition 7.1 database is Microsoft SQ Server.
The Microsoft SQL Server driver that ships with WebSphere Lombardi Edition V7.1 has been found to intermittently truncate some BLOB data to 8000 characters when they are inserted into the database. This situation is most often seen during an import, but can occur at other times as well When you experience data corruption, you typically see errors when you open the corrupted process application for editing in the Process Center. If the corruption is due to an import, you can archive the corrupted snapshot and then import a new snapshot of the same process application after you apply this fix.
To check for corruption in your database, you can run the following queries. If any of the results return non-zero counts, then it is likely that you have corrupted data.
select count(*) from LSW_PO_REFERENCE
select count(*) from LSW_PO_VERSIONS
select count(*) from LSW_TASK_EXECUTION_CONTEXT
The problem is resolved with the JNET driver v5.94 or 5.9.7. The version of the driver is printed in the SystemOut.log file
