Error description

  • APAR-Defect 74165
    
    If a PLI program includes CICS calls, and if "Avoid Implicit
    Declarations" rule is effect
    in the Software Analyzer configuration, then some CICS elements
    get flagged.
    
    For example, in the following code:
    PLITEST: Procedure options(main);
    DCL 1 WORK_RESPONSE                 FIXED BIN(31) INIT(0);
    DCL 1 WORK_CONVID                   CHAR (8)       INIT ('');
    
    IF (WORK_RESPONSE = DFHRESP(NORMAL) )
        THEN ...
    End PLITEST;
    
    The statement IF (WORK_RESPONSE = DFHRESP(NORMAL) ) is flagged.
    
    This is a standard MACRO and should not be flagged.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The "Avoid implicit declaration" rule flags common CICS macros.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modified "Avoid implicit declaration" rule to not flag DFHRESP
    or DFHVALUE.
