Error description

    the RSE view will incorrectly displays jobs as ACTIVE when they

    status of the jobs using the  Host Connection Emulator.

    ****************************************************************
    01.Rational Developer for System z shows TYPRUN=SCAN jobs as
       active after completion of the scan.
    02.JMON assumes too soon that a job ended, resulting in failure
       to get job information. The client receives:
       msgNo=2005, message=Command failed
    03.Unable to work with JES jobs. JMON log shows "FEJ308E
       Malformed command received".
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.JES Job Monitor is updated to correctly interpret job
       status.
    02.JMON incorrectly thinks that STAT_CONV (130) is a
       post-execution phase, while it's a pre-execution phase. This
       is corrected.
    03.The new-line character is translated different for IBM-937
       than for other code-pages, resulting in the new-line
       becoming part of JMON output. When JES client sends such a
       string (for example, jobID) back as part of another command,
       JMON will fail the command. JMON is corrected to deal better
       with unexpected code-page translations.
