Error Messages


Root Cause

On tracing, found the exception on the clipboard: failing at RDB-List step , where a connect-sql rule has been written , in which a procedure has been written to connect to external DB . TestConnectivity of Connect-SQl is proper, but the class connectivity where this connect-sql rule is present is failing.

This is because, while finding schema name(getSchemaName()) , it is getting null .



  1. Note the user that has been configured in the webSphere server
  2. Login with the same user into the database
  3. Run the query select schema_name()
  4. If it returns null, need to associate the schema to that particular user
