APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Constructing simple tests in RIT 8.6.0.3 shows that the "fields
    in any order flag" is respected and processed.  However there
    are some cases where the re-ordering does not occur and
    validation errors consistent with not re-ordering the nodes then
    occurs.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * In an apparent regression between Rational Integration       *
    * Tester versions 8.6.0.2 and 8.6.0.3, the "fields in any      *
    * order" flag was not respected in the Message Difference      *
    * window, and unnecessary validation errors occurred.          *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • The any-order validation code was reworked extensively between
    versions 8.7.0 and 8.7.1, and these unjustified errors are no
    longer seen.
