Symptoms

Compiling E-Business Suite R12 reports using rwconverter.sh or using the Reports Builder from Internet Developer Suite (IDS)10g R2, or converting reports that will be executed in EBS R12 (such as from 'RDF to REX' or 'REX to RDF') will often result in unexpected errors and/or core dumps.

For example:

1.
rwconverter.sh source=$1 dest=$1 stype=rexfile dtype=rdffile userid=apps/<pswd> batch=yes overwrite=yes

An unexpected exception has been detected in native code outside the VM.
Unexpected Signal : 11 occurred at PC=0xF7738471
Function=(null)
Library=$ORACLE_HOME/lib/librw.so

NOTE: We are unable to locate the function name symbol for the error just occurred. Please refer to release documentation for possible reason and solutions.


2. converting 'x.rdf' to 'x.rdf' using rwconverter.sh:
