I have to read a File that contains low values. If I read it with FlatfileParser or FileSystemAdapter, it stops at the first low Value. Is there a way to replace those values before reading the file?
In an unix/linux environment i would give sed a try. something along the lines:
sed -e ‘s/\x00/<replace char>/g’ <input> > <output>
A little background why this error happens. Strings in the xUML Runtime are Unicode strings represented in UTF-8 and a zero byte is the end of string marker.
The FileSystem adapter can read the data because it will return a blob. But then converting the blob to string does not work because it stops at the zero byte.
I have no ready solution for replacing the zero byte in the blob. Perhaps an intermediate step converting it to base64 or hex and replacing the zero byte is possible.
