Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z 9.0.1 - When starting RDz client
    with new workspace, expected push-to-client preferences are not
    downloaded.
    
    The RDz client may incorrectly interpret host configuration
    settings when there are extraneous white-space characters
    embedded in the settings file.  One example is the
    pushtoclient.properties setting primary.system=true being
    interpreted as false when a trailing whitespace character causes
    the client to incorrectly conclude that the setting is not equal
    to "true".  As a result, when an RDz user starts the client with
    a new workspace and connects to the appropriate host, some saved
    configuration/preferences are not downloaded to the client.
    

Local fix

  • Space/x'20' character is imbedded in active
    pushtoclient.properties file.  Remove these "white space"
    character(s) from pushtoclient.properties file.
    

Problem summary

  • The RDz client may incorrectly interpret host configuration
    settings when there are extraneous whitespace characters
    embedded in the settings file.
    
    One example is the pushtoclient.properties setting
    primary.system=true being interpreted as false when a trailing
    whitespace character causes the client to incorrectly conclude
    that the setting is not equal to "true".  As a result, when an
    RDz user starts the client with a new workspace and connects to
    the appropriate host, some saved configuration/preferences are
    not downloaded to the client.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code which interprets the pushtoclient.properties file has
    been modified to trim any whitespace characters before testing
    the setting's value.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V9.0.1.3 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
