PI23797: RATIONAL DEVELOPER FOR SYSTEM Z (RDZ) : RDZ V9.1 ADDING EXTRA BLANK LINES WHEN SUBMITTING JCL TO INTERNAL READER

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • RDz does not enforce the required LRECL 80 for JCL source, like
    TSO. When submitting a JCL member from
    an unsupported dataset (e.g. BLKSIZE 8000, LRECL 800, DSNTYPE
    PDS, DSORD PO), TSO issues an error
    message. But RDz lets the JCL source pass through and inserts
    extra blank lines which leads to misleading
    error messages.
    

Local fix

  • The workaround is to define a PDS with a LRECL 80
    

Problem summary

  • See error description.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fix to check and issue an error message before Job Submit if the
    data set member is not Fixed 80.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V9.1.1.0 Refresh Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
