MII 12.1.5 problem: XML-Doc not initialized in second transaction call

81 Views

(Sorry- I don't know why the lines are not seperated as in my input text...)

Hello!

We are migrating our projects from MII 12.5 to 12.1.5(Build 99).

Most of the problems we found last year during our 12.1 rampup tests are fixed now.

We are very happy about the improved expression parser- it now finds all syntax errors which are ignored in 12.0 (like missing parenthesis).

The new tracing options make is easy to remove such errors.

We found some small problems but this problem ist not easy to see and the result are some hundred wrong SAP postings:

In a called transaction we have a XML-Doc action block which manually configured fields.

Then we adds rows to this document using the ROW-action block.

Note: In the calling main transaction the option "reload transaction after each execution" is UNchecked (the default)

This works fine for the first call of this transaction.

The problems starts with the second call.

Some initalization for the XML-Doc ist not executed (see trace below)

VERY BAD: the ROW-actions to fill the document are executed WITHOUT errors!

Result: an EMPTY XML-Doc!

The solution is to check the option "reload transaction after each execution" in the Transaction call action.

In MII 12.0 the XML-Doc was initalized and filled correctly for both calling options.

Questions:

- Is this a bug or a known behaviour?

During the rampup test we found some problems with local variables and discussed this with SAP (Mr Schuette).

what I remeber: with the unchecked option the local transaction variables should keep the old values of the last call -

but XML-Docs should be initialzed always. The big problem is that the ROW action don't raise an error.

- Should the option "reload transaction after each execution" be checked as default?

- Are there performance differences for both options?

Best regards,

Roger Zuehlsdorf
