APAR status

  • Closed as documentation error.

Error description

  • Types behave in different ways when using DXL, and it may be
    good to document that in more detail.
    
    Specifically the behaviour of skip lists is different to that of
    buffers when they are deleted. Skip list are assigned to null,
    but buffers are not. One knock-on effect of this is that checks
    for null skip lists produce DXL errors, so explicit null
    assignment is required.
    
    The documentation for the delete() perms for each do actually
    suggest this difference is present.
