APAR status

  • Closed as fixed if next.

Error description

  • In RDz v9.1, when two remote files residing on z/OS Unix file
    system are opened in read-only mode and compared with each other
    using the compare editor, the editor allows the files to be
    changed.  The changed file cannot be saved, but has a side
    effect that the changes are saved in the local cache and this
    creates confusion.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The remote compare editor for USS files was not properly
    handling the case where a remote file was read-only.  The
    compare editor allows the user to modify the read-only file.
    Extra checking needs to be made to see if a file is read-only
    and, if so, the compare editor needs to mark the resource as
    read-only.
    
    This APAR is being closed FIN with concurrence from the
    submitting customer. This means that a fix to this APAR is
    expected to be delivered from IBM in a release which is being
    developed at the time that the APAR was closed. The latest
    release of the product to exit development at the time this
    APAR was closed was: Rational Developer for z Systems V9.5.
