APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When editing HLASM source with Rational Developer for z version
    8.5.0 the source parser may fail causing the outline to not be
    produced and task tags not to be shown correctly.  The parser
    can fail if an identifier is used as a macro parameter such as
    in the following example:
    
             TITLE 'P32718'
    P32718   MACRO0
    LABELX   MACRO1 P32718
    P32718   CSECT
             END   P32718
    
    There are no errors recorded in the workspace Error Log when the
    issue is encountered.  The symptoms can also be observed in RDZ
    9.0.x.
    

Local fix

  • Change the code to modify the macro parameter
    

Problem summary

  • When editing HLASM source with Rational Developer for z version
    8.5.0 the source parser may fail causing the outline to not be
    produced and task tags not to be shown correctly.  The parser
    can fail if an identifier is used as a macro parameter.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The parser no longer fails with this input, and the outline view
     is rendered as expected.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V8.5.1.7 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
