COBOL 5.1 XML PARSE is failing - user abend 4038

Postby David Jackson » Wed Jul 15, 2015 3:04 am

I have a simple XML document that is failing when using COBOL 5.1 XML PARSE.
The program abends with the catch all abend U4038 and falls over in a heap with this message:

IGZ0099C Internal error XMLSSUCM was detected in module IGZXXPS

The failing XML line is:
<component>&#xFF00;&quot;dFSDF1</component>

This is (or rather should be) valid XML syntax.

If I place a space character before the &#xFF00 - like this:
<component> &#xFF00;&quot;dFSDF1</component>

It all then works fine.

The fact that this falls over in a nasty heap in the internals of an IBM module leads me to think this is an IBM parsing bug.

I wonder if anybody can equally try this line in a XML PARSE and confirm if it fails for you also.
I am in the process of reporting this to IBM. I can find no IBM APAR that might address this.

Thanks
