Important Notice: Problem with IBM Java 1.7.0 build 2.6

It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED NOT to use IBM Java 1.7.0 build 2.6 for application servers with a TABEX Web Application because it cannot be guaranteed that TABEX/4 saves the data correctly.

The bug is situated in the IBM Java implementation of method setLength(int length) of class StringBuffer: If the new length is longer than the previous length of the string object, then the remaining characters should be filled with zero characters (\u0000) (according to the IBM-JavaDoc). However,if you use IBM Java 1.7.0 build 2.6, the remaining characters are not filled with zeros, but with undefined memory contents.
