Error description

  • APAR Error Description:
    Abstract: Rational Developer for System z V8.5.1.4: After
    closing then reopening perspectives the LPEX parser fails to
    work.
    
    The LPEX parser will stop working in the LPEX editor under the
    following conditions:
    
    1. Start RDz client
    2. From Enterprise Development perspective open a source file
    such as COBOL with the LPEX editor. Take note that the parser
    features are avilable such as Open Declaration.
    3. Close all perspective, Windows>>Close All Perspectives
    4. Reopen Enterprise Development perspective and then reopen the
    source file. Note that now the LPEX parser features are not
    available.
    

Local fix

  • Restart the RDz client.
    

Problem summary

  • Closing perspectives could cause an issue wherein the LPEX
    editor and COBOL parser get out of sync and some context
    sensitive menu options would not be available in the COBOL file,
    such as 'open declaration'.
    
    This APAR is being closed FIN with concurrence from the
    submitting customer. This means that a fix to this APAR is
    expected to be delivered from IBM in a release which is being
