IndexOutOfBounds when extracting work objects with PageLists



When running a BIX extract, it fails to extract work object information in XML output format when there is data in Pagelists.

If the Pagelists are excluded, then it runs and extracts data successfully.

Error Messages

10:42:22,441 [] ( internal.access.ExtractImpl) ERROR - Inskey of the corrupt Instance PEGA-TEST-WORK WO-21
10:42:22,441 [] ( internal.access.ExtractImpl) ERROR - Unable to process while reading the source Db Pega-Test-Work-Class: Index: 4, Size: 0
java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException: Index: 4, Size: 0

Steps to Reproduce

Not applicable.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules. If the work object being extracted has a Pagelist (embedded or otherwise) that has a value for a property in one particular index, but in any prior indexes there is no value for this property, the error occurs.

For example:

- <PageForPListTest>
- <PListTest REPEATINGTYPE="PageList">
- <rowdata REPEATINGINDEX="1">
- <rowdata REPEATINGINDEX="2">
- <rowdata REPEATINGINDEX="3">
- <rowdata REPEATINGINDEX="4">
- <rowdata REPEATINGINDEX="5">

MyValue has values in index 1 and 2, but not in 3 and 4, but then again has a value in index 5.
