    01.RDz client version should include fixpack information to
       allow greater control with CARMA startup processing
    02.The CRRZC0301E error message is intermittent and not enough
       debug information is provided in the rsecomm.log file.
    03.The RDz Endevor RAM needs to be enhanced to provide the new
       capabilities. Additional tasks, described in the HOLD
       actions, are required before this becomes active.
    04.The RDz Endevor RAM needs to be enhanced to provide the new
       capabilities.
    05.Rational Developer for System z - RDz - 8.5.1, 9.0 and 9.1:
       The generated SCL on Endevor API calls include field
       spaces/padding not input by user
    06.The RDz Endevor RAM needs to be enhanced to provide the new
       capabilities. Additional tasks, described in the HOLD
       actions, are required before this becomes active.
    07.The RDz Endevor RAM needs to be enhanced to provide the new
       capabilities.
    08.the error message issued when the server log directory is a
       symbolic link only mentions the path up to the server
       directory, not including the server directory
    09.enhancement to support 8-character userid
    10.When the CRAALLOC/CRANDVRA exec substitutes system
       variables, like TSO prefix, it accepts that null strings are
       returned. This results in an invalid DSN due to a missing
       qualifier, and thus an allocation error.
    11.When CRASUBxx starts with a comment line instead of the
       CLIST PROC statement, CARMA cannot determine the correct
       number of arguments that ust be passed.
    12.host config utility workitem allocates sample RAM VSAM
       instead of Endevor RAM VSAM. Host config utility workitem
       defines ISPPROF as a sequential file in
       crastart.endevor.conf.
    13.JES Job Monitor (JMON) enhancement to tag threads and show
       JES type.
    14.JES Job Monitor (JMON) enhancement to be notified when a job
       ends, and the ability to cancel this notify request.
    15.Rational Developer for System z enhancement to
       enable/disable tracing of CARMA CRASTART startup.
       startup mechanism will remain active to trap and interpret
       messages from CRASTART. This implies that each CARMA
       connection will use 3 address spaces instead of 1. If
       CRASTART startup tracing is disabled, startup messages are
       not analyzed. but might still be reported, depending on the
       debug settings for rsecomm.log.
    
       In v9.1.1, the debug level is derived from the debug level
       used for rsecomm.log. In older releases, it depends on the
       presence of DD CRATRACE in crastart.conf (ex.
       CRATRACE=DUMMY).
    16.Rational Developer for System z (RDz) error feedback for
       assembler is CPU intensive
    17.The IRZCLCNV XML conversion module of Rational Developer for
       System z (RDz) Enterprise Service Tools (EST) is not
       reentrant.
    18.Rational Developer for System z log gathering tool treats
       .dstore*.txt as UTF8, while these files are EBCDIC, thus
       garbling the data.
    19.CICS code generated by Developer for System z relies on IRZ*
       load modules for error messages. These load modules must be
       defined to the CICS region, either via AUTOINSTALL of via
       the new SFEKSAMP(IRZCSD) sample JCL.
    20.JES miner support for enhancement to be notified when a job
       ends, and the ability to cancel this notify request.
    21.RDz version 9.0.2, WSDL2PLI results in ICON CEEDUMP when
       input XML has multiple elements in invalid format.
    22.Import test data JCL hangs if CICS region is running,
       enqueued PDS #SCEERUN
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.RDz client will now pass full version information to the
       host
    02.When an CRRZC0301E error message is encountered, addition
       information will be written to the rsecomm.log file if debug
       logging level is enabled.
    03.The RDz Endevor RAM is being enhanced to provide the new
       capabilities.
    04.The RDz Endevor RAM is being enhanced to provide the new
       capabilities.
    05.This APAR will strip off trailing spaces on all fields in
       the generated SCL.
    06.The RDz Endevor RAM is being enhanced to provide the new
       capabilities.
    07.The RDz Endevor RAM is being enhanced to provide the new
       capabilities.
    08.now the full path is shown
    09.enhancement to support 8-character userid
    10.CRAALLOC/CRANDVRA now strips null-length qualifiers
    11.carma.startup.rex now searches for the PROC line
    12.Problems resolved
    13.JES Job Monitor (JMON) enhancement to tag threads and show
       JES type.
    14.JES Job Monitor (JMON) enhancement to be notified when a job
       ends, and the ability to cancel this notify request.
    15.Enhancement to enable/disable tracing of CRASTART startup.
       If rsecomm.log debug level 2 is set in v911, or DD CRATRACE
       is specified in crastart.conf (ex. CRATRACE=DUMMY) for older
       releases, then the CRASTART startup mechanism will remain
       active to trap and interpret messages from CRASTART. This
       implies that each CARMA connection will use 3 address spaces
       instead of 1.
    16.recompiled with optimized compiler options
    17.IRZCLCNV is now reentrant.
    18..dstore*.txt is now treated as EBCDIC
    19.New SFEKSAMP(IRZCSD) sample JCL provided to define IRZ* load
       modules in CICS CSD.
    20.JES miner support for enhancement to be notified when a job
       ends, and the ability to cancel this notify request.
    21.PL/I Compiled XML Conversion has been corrected to check
       internal stack of XPath of current element and show the
       following error message when contents of the stack is
       invalid.:
       IRZ0978S XML to language structure conversion could not
       complete in procedure PROCEDURE-NAME because an unexpected
       XML element was received. The error occurred at element
       ELEMENT-NAME with character content CHARACTER-CONTENT.
    22.AZUCLCNV is provided to perform unicode conversion. CBL2XML
       converter has been corrected to call out "AZUCLCNV" in
       SFEKLOAD. SFEKLOAD has been added to SYSLIB in ELAXFLNK .
