Problems fixed by Entera 4.0 Patches


12/02/98
Entera 4.0, patch release 9 : HP 10.20

Bug Description:
Customers find "syb_start" and fx sybase server dump code if clients requiring some types of data. It was caused by some errors in the original code.

This bug could be reproduced by client getting data of type such as numeric.

It is fixed in this patch. All customers need to do is put the patch on the top of the Entera 4.0.

File in the patch:

  1. bin/syb_start
  2. bin/libfxsyb.sl

10/23/98
Entera 4.0 patch release 8 : Solaris 2.5

Bug Description:
If "ode_cln_wait_for_binding" is being called in the client code, sometimes the client crashes with an assertion failure.

This does not happen consistently, but intermittently. One of the following reasons could have caused the crash:

  1. Running the client on a slow machine with a slow CDS cell.
  2. Using "ServerBinding=".
  3. Failure to call ode_cln_open_session before calling "ode_cln_wait_for_binding".
(Developers are not supposed to do this. A "ode_cln_open_session" must be called first.)

Files in the patch:

  1. bin/liboddu40.so
