APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In RDz v9.0.1 the rule "Use INITIAL with STATIC data
    declaration" flags a level 1 declaration even if
    all sublevels are initialized.
    
    For example, in code snippet:
    
    DCL 1 TESTR2  STATIC,
         3 TESTR    CHAR(5)  INIT('ABCDE'),
         3 FILLER_02 CHAR(5) INIT('ABCDE');
    
    TESTR2 is flagged.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The PL/I rule "Use INITIAL with STATIC data declarations"
    ignores levels and will incorrectly mark a static data
    declaration when all of its sublevels are initialized.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modified the PL/I rule "Use INITIAL with STATIC data
    declarations" to not mark a static data declaration that has all
    of its sublevels initialized.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V9.0.1.4 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
