Error description

  • Headline/Abstract (128 Character limit - 2 lines of 64 chars) :
    ***************************************************************
    Rational Developer for System z (RDz) Lines with Non-displayable
    
    characters are truncated when edited from the CARMA view.
    
    APAR Error Description (unlimited lines of 64 chars):
    ***************************************************************
    Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v8.0.3.3
    
    Opening a program containing non-displayable characters
    (x'00' - x'30') from CARMA Repositories view, CARMA will
    truncate those statements.
    But the same program opened from dataset in z/OS project view
    is displayed correctly.
    
    Re-creation steps:
    Open a COBOL member and define a line with a low-value (x'00'):
    01 F21 PIC X VALUE ' '.
    Open that COBOL file from Remote System Explorer view, we see:
    01 F21 PIC X VALUE ' '.
    Open it from the CARMA Repositories view, we see:
    01 F21 PIC X VALUE '
    So the line is truncated, starting from that non-displayable
    character.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: 01.CARMA users accessing files that contains *
    *                    a x'00' byte                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: 01.When a file that contains a x'00'    *
    *                         byte is edited from the CARMA        *
    *                         repositories view, the complete file *
    *                         is not displayed                     *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    01.When CARMA users access a file that contains a x'00' byte,
       the record that contains the byte is truncated and the
       complete file is not displayed
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.The CARMA Server code was truncating file records that
       contained a x'00' byte.  The server code has been modified so
       that it no longer truncates the file records and the x'00'
       byte is sent to the client along with the rest of the data in
       the file.
