Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z 8.5.1 - RDz - IMS Web service
    generated PLI converter uses builtin function already declared
    as variable.
    
    The WSDL/XSD used to create new service implementation (top-down
    IMS SOAP GATEWAY) contained an element named RANK.  The batch
    processor (xsebatch) generated PL/I converter program declared
    the RANK variable but also used the PL/1 RANK built-in function.
    This caused problems at run-time.
    
    Generated Code includes this declaration:
           05 Rank FIXED DECIMAL(3,0),
    
    Generated Code uses rank builtin function:
           if (illegal_xml_chars(rank(next_char)) = 1) then do;
    

Local fix

  • Rename RANK variable in RDz generated converter code/program.
    

Problem summary

  • The WSDL/XSD used to create new service implementation (top-down
    IMS SOAP GATEWAY) contained an element named RANK.  The batch
    processor (xsebatch)
    generated PL/I converter program declared the RANK variable but
    also used the PL/1 RANK built-in function.  This caused problems
    at run-time.
    
    Generated Code includes this declaration:

    Generated Code uses rank builtin function:
           if (illegal_xml_chars(rank(next_char)) = 1) then do;
    

Problem conclusion

  • PL/I Compiled LS2XML Conversion has been corrected to call rank
    builtin correctry by declaring rank as builtin.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V8.5.1.5 Fix Pack which
