Wizard PQD Trailing Whitespace Causes RPAS Client To Crash (Doc ID 2384479.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 03, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Predictive Application Server - Version 16.0.1 to 16.0.2 [Release 16.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Problem Description

If a WizardPQD is created with an extra whitespace at the end of the file
name, RPAS throws an error and closes.

We can easily correct the problem by removing the erroneous extra whitespace
from the PQD name, but ideally RPAS would handle this error more gracefully.

This issue is not configuration specific, it can happen on any config/domain.

RPAS Classic Client

Problem: If a WizardPQD is saved with an extra whitespace at the end of the
file name, RPAS throws an error as shown below:

Solution is to fix the WizardPQD by removing the trailing whitespace. But
ideally, RPAS would handle this error more gracefully.


Steps to Reproduce

1. Create an XML with an extra blank space at the end of the pqdlist name.
For example: name="Extra Space "
2. Run the xml to create the WizardPQD
3. Log in to the Classic Client UI
4. Create a New workbook
5. Select Forecast
6. Select Forecast Maintenance
7. Select Final Forecast Level - Baseline
8. Select a Location
9. Select the Position Query Definitions tab
10. Select the PQD created with the xml
11. Load
12. Customer gets a Pop Up Error: Unexpected exception occurred.
      You will have the chance to save the open workbook, if there is one.
13. After clicking OK, Classic Client closes.
14. When tested internally, the pop up error does not occur, Classic Client just closes.
