PI11052: IBM Rational Developer for System z 8.5.0 work offline produces null pointer exception when data sets/members not availab
Fixes are available
Closed as program error.
When using the work offline/work online feature in IBM Rational Developer for System z 8.5.0 and moving to work offline, a null pointer exception occurs if some members or data sets in the project are not available. Often, host system space is managed by moving data sets out of the working volume using HMIGRATE or another means of back up. This action causes source included in a z/os project to be disconnected from the active volume. Subsequently, when the work offline/work online feature in IBM Rational Developer for System z is used to move source in a z/os project offline and it contains data sets or members in these data sets that are no longer active (ie migrated), an error occurs: 'An internal error occurred during: 'Moving resources offline'. java.lang.NullPointerException .' The stack trace produced in the client .log shows: !ENTRY org.eclipse.core.jobs 4 2 2014-02-03 09:17:20.154 !MESSAGE An internal error occurred during: 'Moving resources offline'. !STACK 0 java.lang.NullPointerException at com.ibm.ftt.projects.zos.zoslogical.impl.LZOSResourceImpl.setupE ditorProperties(LZOSResourceImpl.java:2319) at com.ibm.ftt.projects.zos.zoslogical.impl.LZOSPartitionedDataSetO nlineStateImpl.goOffline(LZOSPartitionedDataSetOnlineStateImpl.j ava:602) at com.ibm.ftt.projects.zos.zoslogical.impl.LZOSPartitionedDataSetI mpl.goOffline(LZOSPartitionedDataSetImpl.java:898) at com.ibm.ftt.projects.zos.zoslogical.impl.LZOSSubProjectImpl.goOf fline(LZOSSubProjectImpl.java:2008) at com.ibm.ftt.projects.zos.zoslogical.impl.LZOSProjectImpl.goOffli ne(LZOSProjectImpl.java:1597) at com.ibm.ftt.ui.views.project.navigator.offline.jobs.GoOfflineJob .run(GoOfflineJob.java:206) at org.eclipse.core.internal.jobs.Worker.run(Worker.java:53) Local fix: Move the migrated source now in the backup migration volume back into the active volume that can be accessed by IBM Rational Developer for System z.
Work offline and Work Online support needs to handle migrated data sets.
Work offline support has been enhanced to disable selection of migrated data set in the Work Offline wizard. Work Online support has also been enhanced to check and warn the users in case of an associated resource is migrated during the Work Online operation. The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with IBM Rational Developer for System z V220.127.116.11 Fix Pack which is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page: http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=2294&uid=swg27006335
