Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v8.5.1
    JESJobUtil API, getContents and getContentString, return
    unexpected results.
    
    If you try to use either getContents or getContentString to pull
    data it will return only the first occurrence of the ddname.
    It does not pull all occurrences of the ddname within the step.
    
    
    For instance, if you use getContents(id, "SYSUT1");
    with the following job it will only pull the data from the
    first SYSUT1, which contains "TESTING ONE".
    
    //CANDYLA JOB ,
    //     MSGCLASS=H,TIME=(,4),REGION=88M,NOTIFY=CANDYL
    //BR14 EXEC PGM=IEFBR14
    //SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
    //SYSUT1 DD SYSOUT=*
    TESTING ONE
    //SYSUT1 DD SYSOUT=*
    TESTING TWO
    /*
    //SYSIN DD DUMMY
    //
    
    JES actually creates two spool datasets in this case.
    The SYSUT1 with SYSOUT=* caused two spooled datasets that have
    different dataset names to be created as ::SYSIN in the JES
    output.
