Error description

  • Headline/Abstract
    ***************************************************************
    Rational Developer for System z - Nested array subscripts
    (ctx.X0000000) may not be reset during PL/I XML2LS conversion.
    
    APAR Error Description
    ***************************************************************
    Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v8.0.3.2
    
    When using nested array subscipts, during PL/I XML2LS conversion
    the child array subscript is not being reset on each occurrence
    of the parent array.
    There are two issues caused by the lack of the subscript reset:
    1.) In top-down, the upperbound of each nested array, which is
    automatically computed during a pretraversal of the XML, may be
    larger than needed
    2.) In bottom-up and meet-in-middle, out-of-range subscript
    references may occur during XML2LS conversion.

    larger than needed
    2.) In bottom-up and meet-in-middle, out-of-range subscript
    references may occur during XML2LS conversion.
    
    This problem occurs when the array structure contains an arrays
    indirectly:
    DCL 1 ELE_1,
        2 ELE_2 (3),
           3 ELE_3,
             4 ELE_4(3);
    

Problem conclusion

  • The XML2PLI converter has been corrected to allow to handle
    subscripts correctly.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V8.5.1 Refresh Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
