    ================================================================
    PMR-33457-422-000
    Cobol-reserved-word-not-recognized-160-char-limit
    
    APAR -
    
    Date reported: 09/21/2012
    
    Severity: medium
    
    Users Affected:
     All IMU users of MU V3.2
    
    Problem Description:
     1. COBOL compiler is failing on field name 'METHOD' because it
        is a Reserved Word.
     2. COBOL compiler is failing when quoted literal is over 160
        bytes long.
    
    Problem Summation
     1. Some reserved words are missing from the EASYTCBW table.
     2. IMU passes long quoted values to COBOL for evaluation.
    
    Problem Conclusion:
     1. The following reserved words have been added to EASYTCBW:
      CLASS-ID
      METACLASS
      RECURSIVE
      END-INVOKE
      METHOD
      REPOSITORY
      INHERITS
      METHOD-ID
      RETURNING
      INVOKE
      SELF
      SUPER
      LOCAL-STORAGE
      OVERRIDE
      END-EXEC
      TYPE
      FACTORY
      JNIENVPTR
      NATIONAL
      NATIONAL-EDITED
      XML
      END-XML
      XML-EVENT
      XML-CODE
      XML-TEXT
      XML-NTEXT
      FUNCTION-POINTER
      GROUP-USAGE
    
     2. The long quoted values logic was changed to generate an
        internal field name and use the field name in the place of
        the quoted string.
    
        The internal field is initialized by the long string via
        multiple MOVE instructions in segments of 160 characters
        long.
    
    
    The following macros were changed in FSOFT01.V3R2M0.SFSYFJCC:
    
     EASYTCBW - Existing macro
     EASYT007 - Existing macro
    
    
    Note: The problem was reported by Sandy Malcolm at PGDS US ONE
    LLC.
