Error description

  • In Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.0.1.2, after
    having
    submitted a user build, the "Locate job" function will wait
    until the job is finished.
    
    - Launch a user build
    - Click on preferences and uncheck "submit job" to not submit it
    automatically
    - RTC/RDz asks to submit or open the generated JCL => click on
    submit
    - RTC/RDz gives a jobid
    - Click on "Locate job" or "OK" => RDz/RTC will freeze until the
    job is completed
    - Once the job is finished, RDz/RTC comes back and user can
    continue working.
    

Local fix

  • Workaround is to click on "open" instead of submit and then
    submit the JCL from the editor.
    

Problem summary

  • The loop which checks for job completion was not checking the
    system event queue after waking from sleep.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The loop now calls Display.readAndDispatch() to allow pending
    work to proceed.
    
    In addition we made a slight design change to not prompt the
    user to locate the job after completion since the normal flow
    should be to check the Remote Error List rather than job output.
    
    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:
