TDM: Localization Settings Cause Errors in WHERE clause


Article ID: 92640


Updated On:


CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)


While profiling in the TDM Portal, this error condition is displayed in the log file:
 An expression of non-boolean type specified in a context where a condition is expected, near ','.


TDM  Portal 4.5


Why this happens:
Differences in English and other European languages like Italian, Dutch etc..
In English the period is used, however in Italian a comma is used.
Which causes a problem and that is what the error message states.

Steps to resolve:
 1. Go to C:\Program Files\CA\CA Test Data Manager Portal\service\conf\wrapper.conf
  2. Click on wrapper.conf (take a back up thought) and open it on the editor
  3. Go to Java Additional parameters.
      Paste the following after 8
  4. Re-start the Portal service from services.msc screen
