Vantage uses the rules in the following table to select a UDT constructor:

IF the NEW expression specifies a constructor with an argument list that is … THEN …
empty If a constructor method that takes no parameters and has the same name as the UDT:
  • Exists in the SYSUDTLIB database, Vantage selects that constructor method.
  • Does not exist in the SYSUDTLIB database, Vantage selects the constructor function that is automatically generated when the structured UDT is created.
not empty Vantage selects the constructor method in SYSUDTLIB with a parameter list that matches the arguments passed to the constructor in the NEW expression.
