    vxws:should not send | as separator b/w db key and request id

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 8.1.1

    Description:
    Bug Report Form for Issue 16384-15601

    Module(s): VXWS
    Server platform(s) affected: Solaris/all
    PC OS (if applicable): n/a
    Browser & version (if applicable): n/a
    Release(s) replicated in: 7.2.5, 8.0

    Expected results:
    Vxws should not use a pipe character ( | ) to separate the db key of the requesting db from the hold_recall_id of a request.

    <BUG:ACTUAL>
    Actual results:
    Vxws does currently send a pipe as the separator between the db key of the requesting db and the hold_recall_id of a request; this can cause the cancellation of the request to fail.
    </BUG:ACTUAL>

    Workflow implications: If site uses OvP or another application that uses the web services, they may be unable to cancel requests. Note: as the pipe is sent in other URLs/functions as well, it should be corrected there, too.

    Replication steps:
    Locate a patron with a current hold request.
    Manually send the delete with the pipe (where the patron_id is 439 and the hold_recall_id is 242), and you’ll see the java errors:

    [VGER] voyager@supzv725 : logs/ => telnet localhost 7014
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is '^]'.

    Other information: There appears to be *some* level of configuration somewhere that impacts this, as locally and at a number of other sites on the same version the | does *not* prevent the cancellation of the request. Again, this example is for requests, but the pipe is used in other URLs/functions, and this should be changed there as well.

    Resolution:
    Fixed in VXWS for 8.1.1.
