Error description

  • ***************************************************************
    Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v8.0.3.2
    In a Host Connection Emulator (HCE) session the copy/paste
    of data into Windows Notepad loses the line formatting
    characters (CR/LF - x'0D0A').  When multiple lines are copied
    and pasted into Notepad they appear as one long line.
    
    ***************************************************************
    Local fix:
    Paste the data into Wordpad or some other editor.

Problem summary

  • ***************************************************************
    
    USERS AFFECTED: RDz users who run a Windows operating system
    and use the Host Connection Emulator to copy text into Notepad.
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: It appears we may have been using improper
    line separators based off of the OS. ex: Unix='\n' and
    Windows='\r\n'. Instead of hard coding line separators, one
    needs to use Java's system properties to retrieve the line
    separators.
    ***************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • ***************************************************************
    
    Problem Resolution: Whenever someone uses a copy command from
    the Host Control Emulator, their copied string will contain the
    proper line separator. This way if the user pastes into Notepad,
    the text will no long be a single line.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V8.0.3.5 Fix Pack which
