Error description

  • Stub Guard 'Record Doesn't Exist' does not work
    
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    
    1. Create a stub that has a guard condition 'Record Doesn't
    Exist'
    
    2. Start the stub
    
    3. Send an event to the stub that has a record that does not
    exist
    
    
    EXPECTED RESULTS:
    
    The stub should process the record
    
    ACTUAL RESULTS:
    
    The stub takes the configured Pass Through action of the stub
    
    WORKAROUND:
    
    Set the guard condition to 'None'.
    Put the Lookup Test Data flow in the Business Logic of the stub
    Add a Pass and Fail path
    Process the stub if the Fail condition is met

    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * All users of IBM Rational Integration Tester attempting to   *
    * use the "Record Doesn't Exist" Guard condition in a stub     *
    * event.                                                       *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * The stub Guard condition "Record Doesn't Exist" does         *
    * nothing.                                                     *
    * If this guard is used for an event and the record look-up    *
    * fails, processing does not continue.  The message is         *
    * discarded or pass-through invoked depending on the stub      *
    * configuration.  The following event of the same type is      *
    * ignored.                                                     *
    ****************************************************************

    * Upgrade to Rational Integration Tester v9.0 which includes a *
    * fix for this issue.                                          *
