Error description

  • There are conditions for which a save of a file in LPEX may
    clear the changed indicator and appear to have saved but no save
    was done to the IBM i.  This will happen when RDI is opened with
    RPGLE source and one or more of it's  /COPY members already open
    in edit sessions.  After opening RDI with focus on the main
    RPGLE source member do a manual refresh of the RPG live outline
    then switch to and change a /COPY member and try to perform a
    save of the change.  The changed flag in the editor tab will be
    cleared but the change will not be saved to the IBM i.
    

Local fix

  • To save the change first close then reopen RDI with focus on the
    /COPY member and without closing the edit sessions.  Make a
    change to the member that did not save  then save the change
    before. Change and save any other /COPY members that did not
    save before working on the including source member or manually
    refreshing the live outline.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Those who edit RPGLE source                  *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Edit changes not saved to host when     *
    *                      member is a /COPY target of another     *
    *                      file also being edited.                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When the RDi client is restarted with multiple editor sessions
    open, which include an RPGLE member which has a /COPY which
    targets another member also being edited, then the Outline
    view processing can cause the /COPY target member editor to be
    internally flagged as read-only, preventing user Save actions
    from writing the edit changes to the host.
    
    This only happens if the /COPY target member is referenced for
    the Outline processing before its editor view receives focus
    in the new workbench session..
    

Problem conclusion

  • This problem is fixed in the RDi 9.0.0.1 update.
