RP/TUX 8.1/TUX 9.0/TUX 9.1 - GWWS uses wrong float separator and TMMETADATA crashes if SYSTEM_ACCESS=PROTECTED (Doc ID 777542.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 23, 2024

Oracle Tuxedo - Version 8.1 and later

There are two issues described as follows:

1. TMMETADATA crashes when starting with SYSTEM_ACCESS=PROTECTED on Windows machines.

2. On several operating systems such as German or Dutch, the float / double separator is a comma ',' where it is a point '.' in US. 

GWWS is not aware of that 'fprintf' creates different output based on that background. So GWWS sends comma separated float and double numbers over the wire. 
Those SOAP messages cannot be parsed on client side because a point '.' is expected when reading the messages. CONFIGURATION: Tuxedo 8.1pl283 32-bit on Windows
