This announcement is for all customers using Windows Servers and BBj 16.00 - BBj 16.11. BASIS has discovered that it is possible for an application hosted on a Windows Server and running a version of BBj 16.00 through 16.11 to corrupt a data file in some narrow circumstances, see the details below. The exposure is fairly small, only one customer has experienced the corruption during the time since the release of 16.00.
BASIS wants to make sure that everyone running BBj 16.00 - BBj 16.11 on Windows Servers is aware of the risk and knows that the most current release of BBj (BBj 16.11p1 -- 09/07/2016 12:24) prevents this Windows OS anomaly from causing data corruption and that an interim workaround exists.
The customer that experienced this corruption has provided a sample program that demonstrates the issue, and allowed us to quickly provide a permanent
workaround for the Windows OS issue in BBj 16.11p1. BBj 16.11p1 is available for download today. Go to the download page
and select the 16.11 release.
Please don't hesitate to contact BASIS technical support via [email protected]
should you need assistance in recovering data from a corrupted file.
