APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • You use the CICS Explorer V5.1.0.1 or V5.1.1.0 right-click menu
    action "New from..." to create a new program definition for
    your CICS TS V4.1 region and the Program Definition wizard does
    not open.  The Error Log shows:
    
    Unhandled event loop exception
    
    
    com.ibm.cics.model.IllegalCICSAttributeException: the
    unsupported marker value has no external representation
    
    You can successfully use the right-click action "New..." to
    create a program definition for your CICS TS 4.1 region in
    either the CSD or EYUDREP in BAS.
    
    The problem occurs on the "New from..." action due to the
    JVMSERVER attribute changes in CICS TS 4.2 and above.

Local fix

  • Use the Right-click menu "New..." action instead of "New from.."
    

Problem summary

  • User chooses a CICS region of v4.1 or earlier, right-clicks on a
    PROGDEF and chooses 'New From...' from the context menu.
    UnhandledEventLoopException is registered in the error log and
    the wizard fails to open, with an exception recorded in the
    error log. This occurs because the PROGDEF creation wizard
    attempts to make use of the JVMSERVER attribute, which is not
    available in regions before 4.2.
    Additional Keywords: CICSTS32 CICSTS41
    

Problem conclusion

  • CICS Explorer is changed so that it will not access the
    JVMSERVER value on regions earlier than CICS TS V4.2.
    .
    This fix will be made available in Version 5.1.1.1 of
    the CICS Explorer.
