FIX: Host Initiated Processing only passes data to the first defined method even if multiple methods are defined in the HIP application in a Host Integration Server 2010 environment

SYMPTOMS
Consider the following scenario:
  • You create a Host Initiated Process (HIP) application that includes multiple methods in a Microsoft Host Integration Server 2010 environment.
  • The IBM host transaction calls the HIP application to pass data to multiple methods that are defined in the HIP application.

In this scenario, all the data from the IBM host transaction is passed to the first method that is defined in the HIP application. The data is not processed as expected because it is not sent to the correct methods.
CAUSE
This issue occurs because the Host Initiated Processing components do not correctly interpret the incoming host data. This occurs when the data is based on the resolution string and position settings that are defined in the HIP application when multiple methods are defined.
