    * If the user applies a DFDL schema, Rational Integration      *
    * Tester does not add the optional fields to the message, even *
    * with Optional Fields enabled.                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * Upgrade to Rational Integration Tester v8.6.0.3 (or later),  *

Problem conclusion

  • If the "optional fields" flag is enabled, optional fields are
    now included when the DFDL schema is applied. In addition, the
    new fields are empty rather than null. The change was backported
    from 8.7.0 to 8.6.0.3.
