Error description

  • IBM Developer for z Systems - IDz - v14
    No code coverage is generated when ENVAR("EQA_STARTUP_KEY=CC")
    is inserted into the Language Environment Options for a
    Compiled Code Coverage Configuration.
    
    Steps to recreate:
    Right click on a load module and select Code Coverage As
    select Compiled Code Coverage Configurations
    In the Debug tab Language Environment Options field insert:
    ENVAR("EQA_STARTUP_KEY=CC")
    
    Press the Coverage button
    Below is an example of the generated JCL:
    TEST(ALL,,PROMPT,DBMDT%USER1:*)
    ENVAR(
    "EQA_STARTUP_KEY=3"
    )
    
    The Code coverage ends but no output is generated.
    

Local fix

  • Enter SJ next to the job
    Change the int value, for exampe, 3,  to CC
    Submit and it works

    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * Users who run code coverage in Debug Tool compatibility mode *
    * using MVS Batch or z/OS Unix launch configurations, via the  *
    * Code Coverage As menu, or from the Launch Configuration      *
    * dialog.                                                      *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * When attempting to run code coverage in Debug Tool           *
    * compatibility mode using MVS Batch or z/OS Unix launch       *
    * configurations, an EQA_STARTUP_KEY was generated that could  *
    * not be supported by the IBM z/OS Debugger in Debug Tool      *
    * compatibility mode, and invalid code coverage results are    *
    * produced.                                                    *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code was updated so that the EQA_STARTUP_KEY is generated
    such that the IBM z/OS Debugger can produce code coverage
    results.
    
    This problem is fixed for the following products:
    IBM Debug for z Systems
    IBM Developer for z Systems
    IBM Developer for z Systems Enterprise Edition
