XML prologue version details can be 'lost' when copying data from one output card to another in a WebSphere® Tranformation Extender (WTX) map.
XML prologue version details can be 'lost' when copying data from one output card to another.
This has been identified as a product defect under APAR PM88713
This issue can be seen if there are two or more output cards using the same XSD (in place of a Type Tree) and the data is copied from one (populated) card to another.
Diagnosing the problem
Output card #1 - fill in the XML prolog's version and encoding.
Output card #2 - references the prolog of output card #1, so it should produce the same output. But it does not.
Output card #1: version="1.0", encoding="UTF-8"
Output card #2: version="", encoding="UTF-8"
The version attribute is empty.
