  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If the characters "<" or ">" are used in enumeration values,
    then in DCC jobs, those jobs break.
    
    To recreate:
    
     - create a module that includes "<" or ">" in an enumerated
    attribute value e.g "<option>"
     - select File-> Mappings and add that attribute in the mapping,
    suggest URL, tick the attribute in the reportable shape tab and
    publish it
     - either browse to
    /dwa/rm/oslc/shape/reporting-rr11/requirement or run a DCC job
    which will use that URL
    
    The result will be no data in JRS.
    
    In reporting_translation_layer.log there will be an error such
    as:
    
    "CRCRW90028E Encountered an exception while loading the dataset
    directory at location location:D:\IBM\Rational\DOORS Web
    Access\9.6.1.11\server\work\Catalina\localhost\dwa-rrtranslator\
    tdb_translator\b3aca92c793ee0e9b1a9b0a5f5fc044e05140df3\ "
