Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z (RDz) v9.1.1.1: User build
    transforms binary characters x'0D, x'15, x'25 when transferring
    files to the host.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    
    1- use SCM zImport --binary command to import a COBOL program to
    RTC which contains x'0D, x'15 and x'25' characters
    2- load it to a local workspace using RTC Find and Load Eclipse
    projects
    3- launch a user build which downloads the program to a MVS
    dataset
    4- edit the program directly on the host with ISPF
    5- binary characters like x'15 have been changed to x'25
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • User Build was not checking the RTC metadata of the loaded file
    to see whether the file had been flagged as binary (meaning that
    the file had been imported into RTC as binary because it
    contained characters not supported by UTF-8).
    

Problem conclusion

  • User Build now checks the RTC metadata, and if the file is
    binary, modifies the file system mapping before uploading the
    file.  Once the upload is complete, the mapping is restored to
    it's original value.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V9.1.1.2 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
