WSDL2C: sporadic failures in deserializer code generated for xs:date, returns wrong date value



    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Open
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Unresolved
    • Affects Version/s: 1.6.2
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: adb, codegen

      iOS 5.1 or MacOS X 10.7.5


      The xml deserializer code generated for xs:date calls axutil_date_time_deserialize_date_time()
      instead of axutil_date_time_deserialize_date() to convert a date from string format (e.g. "2012-09-30")
      to a axutil_date_time_t.

      This results in random failures parsing the date. The deserialized date sometimes contains the current date instead of the date value that was present in the xml data.

      How does it fail in axutil_date_time_deserialize_date_time() ? It fails because:

      • A wrong sscanf format string is used to parse the date, sscanf is unable to fill all arguments. sscanf returns 3, and axutil_date_time_deserialize_date_time() does not recognize this failure.
      • after that, axutil_date_time_deserialize_date_time() accesses uninitialized variables for "hour",
        "min", and "sec", and may randomly return parse errors, because hour, min, sec contain a value that is out of range. The end result is that sometimes no parsed date is written to the deserialized date, and we get the current date instead.

      In the debugger, we have this:

      (gdb) bt
