Question

Renaming a file in the Rational Developer for System z RSE view to a name containing an illegal character causes a Java Null pointer error and the file disappears from the RSE view.

Cause

Limitation:

Member names consist of 1 to 8 alphanumeric (A to Z), national (# @ $), or numeric (0 – 9) characters, a hyphen (-), or a character X'C0'. The first character must be alphabetic, national, +, or −. If the first character is + or −, the member is a part of a generation data group.

RSEG1064U - Unexpected error renaming <newfile.name>

and may cause the Rational Developer for System z workspace to hang.

The details displays a Java Null Pointer Exception and an unhandled event loop error is logged in the Error Log.

Answer
