Error description

  • Abstract: Rational Developer for System z V8.5.x client may hang
    when using Software Analyzer
    
    If Software Analyzer it run on a COBOL program which contains
    COPYBOOK statements it may cause the client to hang.
    
    Steps to recreate:
    1. Open a COBOL file from your remote systems view with either
    LPEX or the COBOL editor.
    2. Right click in the editor and click Software Analyzer.
    3. Observe hang issue.
    

Local fix

  • Using local projects may resolve the issue.
    

Problem summary

  • If Software Analyzer is run on a COBOL program which contains
    COPYBOOK statements it may cause the client to hang.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code was updated to avoid downloading non-cached copybooks
    during code review parse. This change causes the code review to
    avoid the code path that causes the hang. Note that copybooks
    will not be updated during code review, so if a user wants to
    include copybooks in the code review analysis, the copybooks
    should be loaded and cached (for example, by opening the program
    that includes the copybooks in an editor) prior to running the
    analysis.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V8.5.1.6 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
