Error description

  • Nested array subscripts may not be reset during PL/I XML2LS
    conversion when parent array has different level arrays. Here is
    an example to illustrate the problem:
    
    This problem occurs when the array structure(NODE1) contains
    arrays(NODE2 and NODE4) on different levels:
    DCL 1 REQUEST,
        2 NODE1 (3),
           3 NODE2(1) CHAR(8),
           3 NODE3,
             4 NODE4(3) CHAR(8);

Problem summary

  • Users affected:
    Top-down, Bottom-up, Meet-in-middle PL/I XML2LS conversion
    
    Problem descriptions:
    When using nested array subscipts, during PL/I XML2LS conversion
    the child array subscript is not being reset when parent array
    has different level arrays.
    There are two issues caused by the lack of the subscript reset:
    1.) In top-down, the upperbound of each nested array, which is
    automatically computed during a pretraversal of the XML, may be
    larger than needed
    2.) In bottom-up and meet-in-middle, out-of-range subscript
    references may occur during XML2LS conversion.
    
    This problem occurs when the array structure(NODE1) contains
    arrays(NODE2 and NODE4) on different levels:
    DCL 1 REQUEST,
        2 NODE1 (3),
           3 NODE2(1) CHAR(8),
           3 NODE3,
             4 NODE4(3) CHAR(8);
    

Problem conclusion

  • The XML2PLI converter has been corrected to allow to handle
    subscripts correctly.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V8.5.1.1 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
