Local fix

  • Correct the WSDL so that it contains a binding.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All CICS Users                               *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: StringOutOfBoundsException occurs       *
    *                      when a WSDL file with no <binding>      *
    *                      elements is supplied to DFHWS2LS        *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When processing the BINDING parameter, DFHWS2LS tried to issue
    message DFHPI9664E to report that the value specified did not
    match any binding element in the WSDL file. DFHPI9664E includes
    the list of binding elements from the WSDL, separated by a comma
    followed by a blank. When formatting this list, it appends each
    element, then the ", ", then at the end of the list, the
    code removes the final comma and blank. However DFHWS2LS does
    not check if no <binding> elements are supplied in the WSDL.
    If none are specified, a StringOutOfBounds exception is thrown
    when attempting to remove the final ", ", and DFHWS2LS
    terminates without any useful diagnostic message.

Temporary fix

Comments

  • DFHWS2LS has been updated to issue message PI9656 when no
    <binding> elements are specified in the WSDL file passed in.
    This message informs the user that DFHWS2LS cannot continue
    because no <binding> elements were found.
    
    The CICS Messages and Codes manual for CICS TS v3.1
    (SRL: GC34-6442-03) is to be updated as follows:
    
    In Chapter 1 (DFH messages), under the 'DFHPInnnn messages'
    section, add the following new message:
    
    DFHPI9656E The WSDL file does not contain any binding elements.
    There must be at least one WSDL binding.
    
    Explanation:
    DFHWS2LS has processed a WSDL document that does not include any
    binding elements. DFHWS2LS requires that there is at least one
    SOAP binding in the WSDL document.
    
    System action:
    The Web services assistant continues processing.
    
    User response:
    Alter the WSDL document so that it does include a WSDL binding.
    
    Module: DFHWS2LS
