JR51185: INTEGER VALUES OF COMPLEX VARIABLES CHANGE FROM NULL TO ZERO AFTER A BOUNDARY EVENT OCCURS

Error description

  • When integer values of complex variables are null, they change
    to zero after a boundary event occurs.
    
    For example, if you have a list that represents a complex
    object, any integer property of that object changes to 0 when
    the value is null. This issue is a problem if these properties
    directly correlate with identity values from a DB2 database.
    
    If you have an optional foreign-key relationship, null values
    are replaced with non-null values when returning data to the
    database. For example, if you have a table (EMPLOYEES) with a
    primary key of EMPLOYEE_ID (INTEGER) that you retrieve data from
    and that table has an optional foreign key to EMPLOYEES
    MANAGER_EMPLOYEE_ID (INTEGER), a null value for
    MANAGER_EMPLOYEE_ID is very different from a MANAGER_EMPLOYEE_ID
    of 0.
