Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - V 9.1
    
    When an MFS source file, opened with the MFS Editor, contains
    errors, trying to save and close the Editor might lead to an
    RDz workbench hang.
    
        Steps to reproduce:
    
    1 - edit a file that has syntax errors with the MFS editor,
    2 - In the source page, modify it,
    3 - Do one of the following steps
    A - In the source page, Ctrl+S
    B - In the design page, do Save (Ctrl+S, RMC->Save, File->Save)
    C - Try to close the MFS editor
    then, the workbench hangs.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The real time syntax check of MFS editor has an issue while
    parsing error messages. A logic that produces errors repeats
    many times when doing Save the mfs file or the resource is
    changed.
    
    The issue occurs:
    (1) Open the MFS editor the file that has syntax errors
    (2) In the source page, modify it
    (3) Do one of the following steps
     (A) In the source page, Ctrl+S
     (B) In the design page, do Save (Ctrl+S, RMC->Save, File->Save)
     (C) Try to close the MFS editor
    
    The issue causes a significant lag and user might think it as
    RDz hang.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The handling error messages for the real time syntax check of
    MFS editor is modified to remove unnecessary repetition.
